The vision for Dhiafatina is to own four- and five-star hotels in strategic key markets for Qatar Airways, and today, Dhiafatina has 1,700 Hotel Rooms and over 1,000 hotel staff in five countries.

The first property to join Dhiafatina was the Oryx Rotana (future Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha), which has been owned by Qatar Airways since 2010 and received the 2019 World Luxury Hotel Award as the best Luxury Business Hotel in the Middle East and North Africa. The Oryx Airport Hotel located at Hamad International Airport (HIA), which opened in 2014, is operated by Dhiafatina and was nominated for the best Airport Hotel at the Skytrax 2020 World Airport Hotel awards.
