Amenities will include a bistro, a lobby lounge, a coffee shop and deli, three restaurants, a cigar lounge and a lifestyle entertainment lounge.

There will also be a 1,500sq m (16,000sq ft) ballroom, a number of private event spaces, a spa and a fitness centre.

Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group, said: "Rosewood Doha and Rosewood Residences Doha will create a new and differentiated benchmark for ultra-luxury hospitality in the region."
