Global Hospitality Real Estate Investment

Chairman's Message

ARTIC’s remarkable growth and development reflects our clear vision to be one of the world’s leading international hotel groups and is founded on more than a decade of investment, development and acquisition expertise in the global hospitality sector.

Created in 2003 to manage Al Faisal Holding’s growing hospitality interests, ARTIC has always embodied the parent group’s commitment to service, quality, and operational excellence that it instills across all its businesses. Since then, ARTIC has successfully established itself as a powerful growth platform in its own right and a respected partner for many of the world’s leading hotel operators.

In step with the government of Qatar’s own investment commitment to develop Qatar’s tourism infrastructure, including through the construction of new hotels, resorts and other tourism facilities, ARTIC has built an enviable asset base at home, to which we have continued to add internationally.

Today our hotel and projects portfolio comprises over 24 renowned and iconic properties in prime city center and resort locations across four continents. It continues to grow as we further deepen and leverage our partner relationships with world class operators. At the heart of our property development and acquisition strategy is an uncompromising focus on quality, location and architectural design. Under this guiding principle, we aim to deliver sustained, profitable growth for our stakeholders – by continuing to play our full part in the significant ongoing development of Qatar’s tourism industry and by continuing to identify and exploit opportunities to accelerate the expansion of our regional and international hotel portfolio.

In just a little over ten years ARTIC has established its name, reputation and critical mass in the business. I now look forward to the next, exciting phase of our growth with confidence.
