Experienced and driven hotelier joins Alwadi Doha as Qatar heads towards FIFA World Cup 2022
Over 17 years of experience at some of the region’s most luxurious hotels, Ramsey Saarany, has been appointed as the General Manager of Alwadi Doha – MGallery Hotel Collection. Joining from Sofitel Dubai The Palm, within Accor’s portfolio, Ramsey will oversee the daily operations of this luxury boutique property and lead the strategic direction for Alwadi Doha.
With a degree in International Hospitality Management from the University of Surrey, and an MBA from CASS Business School in London, Ramsey has held senior leadership roles at the iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Madinat Jumeirah Resort in Dubai and within Accor. He first joined Accor for the opening of the flagship Sofitel Dubai Downtown in 2013 and his most recent position, which he held for the past 5 years, was as the Hotel Manager at the prestigious Sofitel the Palm Resort in Dubai.
“To be joining Alwadi Hotel MGallery at this critical time, with the FIFA 2022 Qatar World Cup just a few months away, is an immense honor and privilege,” Ramsey said. “It is also a great challenge and we look forward to welcoming the world in 2022 and ensuring that each and every one of our guests have a fantastic experience during this landmark year.”
“The Alwadi Hotel MGallery has cemented itself as one of the city’s most exciting hotels for both business and leisure travelers alike. As a hotel that offers the essence of Qatari Hospitality at the heart of Doha, we will be providing our guests with an authentic Qatari inspired hospitality experience. Its strategic location in the thriving Msheireb area coupled with its close proximity to both the Souq Waqif and the underground, all make it an excellent destination for travelers”.
With 213 rooms and suites, Alwadi Hotel MGallery is home to an award-winning spa, an array of culinary experiences, including a signature Arabic restaurant and a rooftop bar with 360 degree panoramic views of the city. “I look forward to guiding and inspiring this dynamic team into a new and exciting phase– which will be a very special one for both Alwadi Hotel MGallery and, of course, the State of Qatar.”
