Sixteen identical floating hotels make a unique design, each building covering 72 meters long and 16 meters wide. Containing 101 guest rooms, a restaurant, and each lounge, all 16-story hotels will offer 1616 floating hotel rooms.

He added that
“after the World Cup, hotels can be located in any coastal area where the water level is less than 4 meters deep. We are delighted to be part of the solution to the amount of accommodation required for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”

It is noteworthy that Qetaifan Island North, located just outside the town of Lusail, has seven beaches, making it a unique part of the city. The island covers an estimated 1.3 million square feet [83 sq m] of 830,000 square feet [830,000 sq m].
Inside, each building will have a dining room, lounge/bar, and 101 clean, Scandinavian guest rooms with shades of white and wood. “One thing that is unique in each room is the level of energy consumption,” Vahala explained. “Residential energy consumption will be measured and shared directly to empower them to reduce their carbon footprint.” After the World Cup, plans are afoot to move the houses to a permanent location, although no details have been announced. Hotels also do not have an official name yet, although engineers realize that interested guests will book unique rooms for one year from the games by international tourist destinations.
This project will facilitate the visitors during the 2022 FIFA World Cup and will also lay a grand milestone for future constructors. These model hotels and their luxurious rooms will be relocated to another place after the 2022 FIFA world cup for future use. Mobility is another distinctive feature of these hotels.
