About The Pearl-Qatar

The Pearl-Qatar occupies a prime location off the coast of Doha’s West Bay. A masterpiece of private and modern living on an Island spanning over four million square-meters of land, The Pearl-Qatar offers a tailored range of residential solutions to meet the highest of standards available in the Gulf. Furthermore, The Pearl-Qatar’s largest precinct Porto Arabia plays host to the latest retail and hospitality offerings from the world’s leading brands and restaurants.

Developed by United Development Company (UDC), the Island is located 350 meters offshore of Doha’s prestigious West Bay District and is one of the largest real-estate developments in the Gulf.

What was once a shallow seabed, a site for pearl-diving, has in five short years transformed Doha’s coastline, creating a place where dreams and reality become one. Four million square meters of reclaimed land, along with 32 kilometers of new seafront, will soon add up to about 50,000 residents occupying a variety of luxury accommodations.

The Island was the first development in Qatar to offer freehold and residential rights to international clients. From across the globe, buyers and investors have capitalized on the project’s potential. World-class architecture, luxurious amenities and aesthetic details exude old-world charm and the best in modern living. The result is as much a destination as it is an experience, blending residential charm with the comfort of an exclusive resort.

The Pearl-Qatar’s first phase and gateway to the Island houses the world’s longest waterfront luxury retail walkway, the 3.5 kilometer marina-front pedestrian boardwalk “La Croisette”, which is home to international hospitality brands and high-end boutiques. 2009 was a year of “firsts,” with Porto Arabia seeing new residents and visitors flock to the Island’s burgeoning activities. Marsa Malaz Kempinski is the first and only hotel located on The Pearl-Qatar.

Development of The Pearl-Qatar’s 10 precincts is well underway. Upon completion, approximately 19,000 residential dwellings will be in use on the Island.
