A number of hotels, transport companies and restaurants in Qatar announced that they will offer Kuwaiti and Omani tourists free accommodation, transport services and meals during Eid Al-Fitr.
This was largely in reaction to the social media solidarity campaign initiated by Kuwaiti and Omani nationals expressing their intent to spend Eid Al-Fitr holidays in Qatar.
The Arabic twitter hashtag ‘Eid Al-Fitr in Qatar’ was quickly trending in Oman, Kuwait and Qatar where users from the three countries exchanged words of support and solidarity amidst the ongoing GCC crisis. As an act of gratefulness, several companies in Qatar reacted to the initiative and started announcing free holiday services exclusively to citizens of Kuwait and Oman who supported Qatar and chose to spend the holidays among its people.
Some of these companies included Zubarah Hotel, Sapphire Plaza Hotel, Pearl Limousine, Shay Al Shomous Caf` in Souq Waqif and Esmer Chef Restaurant in the Pearl.
Katara Hospitality also announced Eid Al-Fitr offers for Kuwaitis and Omanis in the form of a free night stay when reserving two consecutive nights at some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts in Doha including the Sheraton Hotel, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Banana Island Resort, and many others.
