Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has announced the highly anticipated opening of Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay. Close to the city centre and key attractions, the property epitomises modern luxury – offering elegant furnishings, a range of culinary options, a four-floor wellness experience and seamless, personalised service.
With a façade and main entrance almost identical to the original Waldorf Astoria in New York, the hotel nods to the brand’s rich heritage and legacy, bringing Manhattan flair to Qatar’s capital. The 44-storey property features 283 rooms and suites, as well as 50 luxury apartments – all of which boast a distinct art deco style. In addition, each guest of the property will be assigned a Personal Concierge who will meticulously attend to every detail of their stay from pre-arrival to post-departure.
Paying homage to the history of grand clocks at Waldorf Astoria properties around the world, the central feature of the lobby is a striking clock created by Tiffany & Co. A piece of art, the clock celebrates the falcon – Qatar’s national bird – with a bezel inspired by the tips of a falcon’s feathers. Handcrafted in Switzerland, it features the patented Tiffany blue on the clock hands and number indicators. In addition, luxurious mohair upholstery in Tiffany blue is used on the bench surrounding the clock, and in each guest room.
The Waldorf Astoria Spa stretches from the 39th to the 43rd floor, and offers a unique range of wellness experiences. The expansive spa’s bespoke features include salt inhalation relaxation and hydrotherapy pools, thermal experiences including sensory rain walk, a salon, relaxation zones with private Alpha sphere experiences, and treatment suites that embrace holistic wellness treatments.
In line with Waldorf Astoria’s legacy of food and beverage excellence, Waldorf
Astoria Doha West Bay features a variety of venues. Reflecting the history of the original Waldorf Astoria in New York, Peacock Alley offers the brand’s Afternoon Tea, as well as signature dishes such as eggs benedict and red velvet cake. Guests can also indulge in sweet treats at Ledoux, a Parisienne patisserie that offers bespoke pastries and cakes, sip on artisanal cocktails at the New York-inspired mixology bar, The Cortland Bar, or enjoy Levantine cuisine and shisha at Al Fayrouz Terrace.
For a gourmet food hall experience, Tribeca Market serves New York-inspired classics and delicacies. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the elegant venue features five different live stations.
Additional venues that are set to open soon include MURU which will be helmed by Michelin-starred, Italian-Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco, and YUN where guests will dine on modern Cantonese and Taishanese cuisine in a setting reminiscent of the original tea houses and luxury dining rooms of 1930’s Hong Kong.
