Finnish company Admares has been selected by the client as the main contractor for the project. The floating hotels will provide accommodation for football fans during the 2022 Fifa World Cup. Following discussions, the two companies signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to move forward with the project. The Memorandum of Understanding includes the construction and operation of 16 floating hotels on the shores of Qetaifan Island North to provide accommodation for the masses within the fan villages during the 2022 World Cup. The hotels have a unique design; 72-meter-long and 16-meter-wide (236-feet-long and 52-feet-wide), each consisting of 101 guest rooms, a restaurant, and a lounge bar. All of the 16 four-story hotels will be identical, offering a total of 1616 floating hotel rooms. The solar-powered structures could be reused after the World Cup at any coastal location where the water is at least 4 metres deep.
