Starwood Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, Doha’s new serene downtown sanctuary.
Located in the heart of the capital, the hotel marks Westin’s debut in Qatar and further expands the brand’s portfolio to four properties across the Middle East.
“We are delighted to introduce our Westin brand to Qatar, which remains a key growth market for us in the Middle East,” said Guido de Wilde, senior vice president, Regional Director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Middle East.
He added: “In line with the brand’s commitment to wellness, The Westin Doha will offer travellers and local residents a revitalising experience, an escape from the hustle and bustle in the heart of downtown Doha.”
Starwood opens the hotel with Ghanem Al Thani Holdings, headed by Sheikh Ghanem bin Ali al-Thani, who have been pioneers in Doha and opened their first hotel in the Bin Mahmoud neighbourhood in 1979.
The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa is at the forefront of the revitalisation of downtown Doha.
The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa boasts 365 contemporary spacious rooms, suites and villas, including a 347sqm presidential suite, all offering views of Doha City or the hotel’s serene oasis garden and pool area.
The room’s modern furnishings, warm colour schemes and understated decorative accents help soothe the mind, body and soul. All rooms feature the world-renowned Westin Heavenly bed, invigorating rainforest shower and separate bathtub – all reinforcing the concept of rejuvenation, along with Westin’s signature bath amenities.
The hotel features the Heavenly Spa, offering the perfect escape from the arduous city life with nine elegant treatment rooms, including designated male and female wings, complete with relaxation lounge.
The wet spa areas with saunas, steam rooms and hydrotherapy pool facilities will open in spring 2016. Guests looking for a revitalising, yet energised stay can power up in the WestinWorkout Fitness Studio, a spacious state-of-the-art gym or take advantage of Doha’s first man-made wave pool. The hotel also offers Westin’s signature Gear Lending programme, providing New Balance shoes and athletic wear for guests looking to stay active while on the road.
Local residents and guests will also enjoy Doha’s finest culinary delights across the hotel’s six restaurants and bars. The hotel opens with Luxe Lounge, a coffee lounge with outdoor garden terrace, Seasonal Tastes – global cuisine restaurant, Waves Pool Cafe and MIX Bar, Lounge & Terrace.
In March, the hotel will introduce new concepts in Doha such as Royal Thai-themed Sabai Thai and contemporary grill restaurant Hunters Room & Grill, which boasts a stunning, indoor green winter garden setting with natural daylight in the hotel’s atrium, perfect for year round al-fresco dining experience especially during the hot summer months.
The hotel will also introduce the popular “Bubbalicious” brunch to Doha for the first time, an entertaining, interactive experience that provides the opportunity for friends and family to spend quality time together.
The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa is home to the largest pillar-less ballroom in Doha, featuring over 6,000sqm of function space, combined with Westin’s trademark, clutter-free instinctive service and attention to detail.
For an unforgettable wedding experience, The Westin offers a beautiful contemporary designed venue, with a breathtaking pre-function foyer with Bohemian Crystal droplet chandelier, as well as separate dedicated bride and groom dressing rooms in addition to the hotel’s bridal suite above the function space.
Delicious cuisine and sublime attention to detail that create a memorable wedding experience are tailored to each guest’s personal style.
The hotel is located right in the heart of Salwa Road, minutes away from Doha’s central business district, museums and unique cultural venues as well as Hamad International Airport, which is a mere 20-minute drive from the property.
The opening of The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa marks Starwood’s fourth hotel in Qatar. In the Middle East, Starwood currently operates 53 properties with a pipeline of more than 40 hotels to open in the next five years.
