Situated in one of the GCC’s most exciting new communities, Four Seasons Resort and Residences at The Pearl-Qatar is now open. With an enviable beachfront location at the end of a residential street, the all-new Four Seasons is located within The Pearl-Qatar with its dynamic shopping, dining, entertainment and residential neighbourhoods.
“Doha has seen dramatic growth and development since we opened our first hotel here in 2005, emerging as an important global destination,” says Rainer Stampfer, Four Seasons President, Global Operations, Hotels and Resorts. “As we continue to grow our portfolio of hotels, resorts and residences in the Middle East, our new Four Seasons Resort and Residences at The Pearl-Qatar blurs the lines between travellers and residents, business trips and holidays, even cities versus resort destinations – it’s a luxury lifestyle offering shaped by the genuine care and customized experiences created by our Four Seasons people.”
A true home away from home
“A stay at Four Seasons puts you in the middle of an international gathering of vacationers, extended stay guests and residents within our Resort, and the broader community of The Pearl-Qatar right outside our doors,” says General Manager Mehdi Zaanoun who leads of team of 500 passionate professionals. “This is a place where you will connect with people – whether it’s expanding business opportunities, spending precious time with family or making new friends exploring the city or enjoying a night out on the town.”

Each offers expansive living areas complete with fully equipped kitchens with Miele appliances and ensuite laundry, along with furnished outdoor terraces, all tastefully finished by Wimberly Interiors with bespoke details throughout.
Throughout the property, a fantastic contemporary art collection features local Qatari artists including Hanadi Al-Darwish and Shouq Al-Mana, as well as works by international artists, including a striking wall sculpture by Turkish artist Gülay Semercioğlu and four large-scale paintings by Parisian artist Maude Maris in the Resort lobby.

Loulou Spa: Targeted treatments, luxurious pampering, and fitness
Whether staying fit while in town for business, relaxing while on holiday or seeking serious results, the treatment menus and facilities of LouLou Spa have been created with the needs of sophisticated travellers and local residents in mind.
Spa treatments featuring renowned international brands such as Biologique Recherche and Bellabaci employ cutting-edge techniques in targeted skin treatments, massage therapies and results-driven body treatments, including a full menu of cupping therapies. Expertly trained therapists have also designed several pearl-inspired signature treatments using hand-made spa tools and ingredients (loulou is the Arabic word for pearls, which were once harvested in the sea where The Pearl-Qatar community now stands).
Loulou Spa also offers salon services, a well-equipped gym and a 25-metre (82 foot) indoor lap pool overlooking the sea.
Ideal for families
With multi-bedroom accommodations that include ensuite kitchens and laundry, families can take up residence at Four Seasons, whether for a few days, a few weeks, or longer. Baby gear and child-size amenities are available at no extra cost, and all Resort restaurants offer special kids menus. When it’s time to play, in addition to the beach and family-friendly pool (a second outdoor pool is reserved for adults only), the Kids For All Seasons club is a resort-within-a-resort designed just for younger guests. Complete with indoor and outdoor play areas, the club offers complimentary daily programming for ages 4-12, all fully supervised by a dedicated team of Four Seasons staff who love to help kids learn, create, explore and make new friends.
“My First Job at Four Seasons” is a series of 60 to 90 minute classes that take young guests behind the scenes of a busy hotel operation as they are introduced to the culinary arts (including mocktail mixology!), concierge services and more, or the finer points of table manners at Duchess.
Hellwig advises younger guests to keep an eye out for the Resort’s mascot emblem, an Arabian baby falcon who pops up in treasure hunt maps, colouring books and, in plush form, in toy boxes in the Kids Club.
