St Regis Hotels and Resorts has opened an all-suite property in Qatar’s capital of Doha.
The 193-key St Regis Marsa Arabia Island, The Pearl Qatar is a part of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio and is the second St Regis in the city.
It features one-, two- and three-bedroom suites and private townhouses, each with large balconies.
The suites have large open bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, fully-equipped kitchens, and are designed in hues of beige and white.
The hotel’s entrance is inspired by the Al Hambra Palace in Granada. The influence of Qatari and Andalucian culture is showcased through the artwork in the hotel. It includes five Damien Hirst butterfly prints, Empresses, as well as a falcon sculpture Alkarar by Iraqi sculptor Ahmed Al Bahrani’s. Other artists whose work are on display at the hotel include Dominic Harris and Brian “Kaws” Donnelly.
Culinary offerings include 10 food and beverage options. There’s Mandaloun Pool Club, Greek restaurant Manos, and Chotto Matte which serves Nikei cuisine. Lebanese food can be found at Babel, while Ahwet Zeitouna is the destination for shisha. Fine dining restaurant Roberto’s allows guests to indulge in Italian and Mediterranean specialities, while there’s also the St Regis Cigar Lounge on the property.
Its meeting and events space includes the Ballroom which can accommodate 700 guests and has its own private access from the main hotel entrance.
Wellness options at the new St Regis include bespoke treatments at Longevity Hub by Clinique La Prairie which will open soon. A team of personal trainers offer bespoke sessions in the hotel’s gym too. There’s an expansive swimming pool as well as a spa bath and children’s pool. Guests can also access the nearby Pearl Yachting Club which offers sunset cruises – a complimentary 10-minute water taxi provides direct access to the shores of The St Regis Doha beach.
“The opening ushers in a new benchmark for luxury hospitality and as our second St Regis property in Doha, underlines the brand’s expansion and interest in this dynamic region,” said Satya Anand, president for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Marriott International. “With this milestone opening, we are also delighted to strengthen our relationship with the Alfardan Group.”
Marriott International said in September that it intends to add 20 properties and more than 5,000 rooms across the Middle East over the next 15 months.
