This, though, demonstrates Qetaifan Projects’ position in the local real estate development market and reflects the confidence that corresponds to the achievements and ambition for Qetaifan Island North to the highest international standards and compete as the first leisure and entertainment touristic destination in Qatar. Which puts on us more responsibility by our commitment to provide the best for our beloved country.” He continued, “We are working hard to add to the real estate development market in the recent period, and we consider the Qetaifan Island North as a starting point for Qetaifan projects towards the development of more projects serving the various sectors of the country.”

The development of Qetaifan Island North is more than just a project. We see it differently, in addition to it being one of the national projects that aim to serve the real estate development sector, the elements and attractions that will be featured on the island will in turn aim to serve different sectors of the country, most notably the hotels and waterpark, which will meet the growing demand in preparation for the 2022 World Cup, and revitalize the tourism sector. We have brought in international partnerships such as Rixos Hotels operating the waterpark, hotels, and beach club for the first time in Qatar. H.E Sheikh Nasser concluded by saying: “We believe that standing-out is one way of creativity, and seeing things differently is our way to success. Our differentiator starts from within, our work environment, where everyone works hand in hand believing in the project and its objectives. We believe that all involved parties must succeed, starting from the employees to the investor. Hence, our distinction to make Qetaifan Island North an island like no other.”
