Published 25 May 2012
Abu Dhabi, UAE: Millennium Executive Apartments, the serviced residences brand from Millennium & Copthorne, will enter the Qatar market with two new properties under way in Doha, the hotel group announced last April
May 25, 2012 - This announcement follows the recent news of two new openings in the Qatari capital, Kingsgate Doha and Copthorne Doha, where they join the established and popular five-star Doha hotel (http://www.millenniumhotels.com/millenniumdoha/), Millennium Hotel Doha. The Millennium Executive Apartments brand has evolved from the DNA of the popular Millennium Hotel, offering the same impeccable comfort and attention to detail as the hotels but for medium to long term residents. The brand, which is in operation in other international markets, will make its first appearance in the Middle East and Africa market with the Al Najma Millennium Executive Apartments, opening in the 4th quarter of 2012 with 63 residences.
Ali Hamad Lakhraim Alzaabi, President and CEO of Millennium & Copthorne Middle East, Africa, and Indian Subcontinent commented: “Qatar is a dynamic market with lots of potential. The tremendous development taking place in Qatar right now, not to mention the build up to the FIFA World Cup, will spur further demand from both local and expatriate professionals for longer term temporary high quality, high comfort, excellent service accommodation, and that is what Millennium Executive Apartments offers. We have also recently announced our mid-scale and budget brands entering the Doha market, which means we offer better choice to our loyal group guests than ever before. “The two new Millennium Executive Apartments properties in Doha are just the start. We envision this brand to roll out across the region, and we will soon be opening our first property in Abu Dhabi, followed by another in Dubai before we open our second residence property in Doha.”
The second Millennium Executive Apartments property opening in Doha will offer 394 residences and is expected to open in early 2013.
