QATAR'S exciting new lifestyle hospitality offering, Mondrian Doha, managed by sbe, the leading lifestyle hospitality company that develops, manages and operates award-winning hospitality venues globally, has announced that it is now accepting reservations for the soon to open property in Doha.
With Mondrian Doha, marking sbe's first hotel in the Middle East and the introduction of the Mondrian brand to the region, sbe is set to open a number of their award-winning culinary concepts, Katsuya and Cleo across the GCC by 2020.
Jorge Giannattasio, Chief Operating Officer at sbe, commented:"We are delighted to now be in a position to take bookings for Mondrian Doha, and are looking forward to opening our first hotel in the Middle East in Doha, which is one of the most dynamic cities in the region."
The lavish 270-room hotel has been designed in collaboration with world-renowned Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders, along with South West Architecture the architectural company of record for Mondrian Doha, responsible for the design of the building. The hotel will be an exceptional lifestyle offering for Doha and will be Marcel Wanders' first hotel for the region.
Guests can choose from five distinctive room categories including a penthouse suite, studio suites, one and two bedroom suites and a range of standard guestrooms all of which share the universal design details of Swarovski crystal chandeliers and sumptuous bespoke furniture in hues to mirror the desert.
Located on the 23rd floor of the property, the impeccable penthouse suite offers incredible attention to detail combined with panoramic 360-degree views of Doha throughout. Wanders' iconic floating staircase and hand-painted One-Minute Delft blue vases set a striking and sophisticated atmosphere, while other locally-inspired features such as custom-designed Dean Majilis sofas and a"cabinet of information" filled with objects and details allow guests to familiarise themselves with the culture of the region. The Penthouse Suite has a living room, master king bedroom and two twin bedrooms, dining room and entertainment room complete with a pool table and piano.
The hotel will incorporate bespoke Marcel Wanders design features with influences from the beauty of local patterns, ornate Arabic writing and historic souks. The essence of One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern folk tales and stories, has also influenced the design of the space, which is detailed-orientated and complex, with a number of facets, levels and layers. Structurally, the building of Mondrian Doha is shaped like a falcon, with many references to the national bird of Qatar also found inside; from paintings and portraits to falcon headpieces and ornaments.
The location of the hotel is next to Lagoona Mall in the West Bay area.
Mondrian Doha is a culinary emporium; with eight restaurants and bars some of which are entirely new to Qatar offering un-paralleled experiences in Doha. Middle Eastern cuisine is at the heart of Mondrian Doha's food and beverage offering along with renowned chefs. Mondrian Doha will be home to ESPA Spa, representing the first in the region and one of the largest spas in Qatar.
The hotel will be taking bookings from October 1, 2017, with room rates starting at QR875 ($240) per night.
