The Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli has launched in Al Wakra, a seaside district that is gaining prominence. The area is less than a half hour south of Doha, the capital of Qatar.

Al Wakra has been a trading post since the 1600’s, having been known for pearl divers, sailors and fishermen. The new hotel has two buildings with more than 100 guest rooms. Both structures originated as heritage houses.

The rooms reflect both the sea and desert, as they were modeled after Wakra’s history as a pearl diving and fishing village. They have thatched roofs, echoing the basket weaving traditions of the region.
