Katara Hospitality, a leading global hotel owner, developer and operator based in Qatar, announced last year the launch of Qetaifan Projects company, a newly established subsidiary, to develop and manage Qetaifan Island North.
 
The announcement came during a signing ceremony between Katara Hospitality and Atkins, one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, assigned to design the masterplan, infrastructure and components of phase one of Qetaifan Island North.
 
Qetaifan Islands is a development located off Lusail City in Doha, Qatar comprising of Qetaifan Island North, which will be developed by Qetaifan Projects company, and Qetaifan Island South, developed by Lusail Real Estate Development Company. 

From the Lusail City official website:

Being surrounded by water gives you a fresh perspective on life, relationships and family. At Qetaifan islands community comes first with shared areas and a friendly environment that brings families and people together as one, holistic community.

The islands promise a life of relaxation, with spa treatments and therapies to rejuvenate the body, stimulate the senses and replenish the soul. And afterwards, take a stroll in the grand manicured lawns with tennis courts; pool amenities with the villas are set in the dune grass landscape with boardwalks.

Lusail City extends across an area of 38 square kilometres and includes four exclusive islands and 19 multi-purpose residential, mixed use, entertainment and commercial districts. It is a comprehensive arena with leisure spots, residential buildings, commercial towers, avenues and public Marinas.

Called "the city of the future", Lusail City can accommodate 200,000 residents and 170,000 employees; it will also welcome over 80,000 visitors. The total estimated capacity of Lusail will eventually reach 450,000 people. The city also includes numerous residential units, office buildings of various sizes and 22 hotels with different international star ratings, making it an element of attraction for investment in Qatar.
