Qatar Airways has officially opened its latest business class lounge at Hamad International airport.

Part of a renovation and expansion project at the airport – the first phase of which was unveiled late last year – The Garden lounge serves as an extension to the existing Al Mourjan Business Lounge.

The 7,390 sqm space overlooks the airport’s indoor tropical garden The ORCHARD, and can accommodate up to 707 guests, creating an overall facility for up to 1,600 passengers.

Features include seven spa treatment rooms, a fitness centre, pedicure and manicure stations, a nursery, showers, a game room, smoking room and 24 quiet spaces which can be rented free of charge for up to six hours.

F&B options include a la carte dining, a buffet area with sushi station, a coffee and patisserie bar with ice cream station, and a cocktail and bistro bar.

“At Qatar Airways, excellence is embedded in the core of our brand, and as we continue to evolve our offerings, we choose to provide our passengers with the very best experiences in aviation and hospitality.
