Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DOHA, Qatar - Mar 03, 2016 - The idyllic and recently opened Banana Island Resort, developed by the Qatar-based UrbaCon Trading and Contracting, was meticulously crafted around the concept of a Maldivian resort and is now being dubbed as the closer, more convenient alternative to visiting the island nation.
UrbaCon’s CEO Mr. Mohamed Moataz Al Khayyat said: “The resort is the first of its kind in the region and shares very similar attributes to its Maldivian cousin islands. People who are used to vacationing in the Maldives, can now save their time and come to the Banana Island Resort.”
Operated by the Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas brand, Banana Island Resort is Minor Hotel Group’s first hotel in Qatar. The resort is located on a crescent-shaped island that lies just off the coast of Doha and can only be accessed by either ferry or helicopter. The property offers an array of accommodations, all with an ocean view. As well as a 96-room hotel, the resort also boasts 34 two- and three-bedroom poolside villas as well as 11 Maldivian-style water villas.
The resort has been built to the very best standards and overseen by CEO Mr. Mohamed Moataz Al Khayat. The Islands offer traditional Qatari hospitality and extensive facilities for families and romantic getaways that include a 800-metre private beach, a marina with 30 berths, a dive centre, a lap pool, a children’s pool, a full range of water sports, tennis, beach volleyball, a Balance Wellness Centre, an entertainment centre with a nine-hole putting golf course, a bowling alley and a VIP cinema theatre. Eight dining options offer a choice of Middle Eastern, Italian and international cuisines.
UrbaCon Trading & Contracting has been involved in several huge projects over the last few years and has become one of the most respected building contractors in Qatar. In addition to the Banana Resort, the company was also involved in the development of the Mall of Qatar, the Sheraton Doha Hotel and Convention Centre, and the Lekhwiya Stadium at Al Duhail.
