Asian and Arabian hospitality blend at new Shangri-La Doha

by Jane Kitchen | 01 Mar 2016

The 50-storey Shangri-La Hotel, Doha has opened in the Qatari capital, with 272 bedrooms as well as the brand’s signature CHI The Spa.

The hotel includes an aquamarine lagoon-shaped pool set on a 2,000sq m (21,528sq ft) deck surrounded by 70 leafy trees, as well as a health club with 24-hour fitness centre, sauna and steamrooms.

Designed by H.O.K. Architects, the Shangri-La Hotel, Doha also includes 42 serviced apartments and seven restaurants, including one designed with distinctive arches, intricate laps and vividly coloured tiles to recreate a lively souk market.

The hotel’s Asian-themed spa includes eight treatment rooms, as well as an outdoor hydrotonic pool. Treatments utilise the brand’s botanical extracts and aromatic essential oils, combined with Arabian elements.

Designed to resemble a falcon’s head in recognition of Qatari falconry – the country’s historic past time – the hotel showcases museum-quality art pieces honouring the heritage of the Qatari peninsula, which are on loan from the Sheikh Faisal Collection.
