We give Thibault de Vries, general manager of Andaz Doha, five minutes to pitch his property to prospective guests.
“Capturing Qatar’s energetic style and heritage, Andaz Doha is a hotel blending old-world charm with contemporary luxury. Conveniently located in the prestigious West Bay area, it is the perfect location to inspire curiosity and discover hidden gems across the dynamic city. Andaz Doha marks the debut of Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s luxury lifestyle brand in Qatar.
The vision for Andaz Doha is to create a unique property that encapsulates the energy of the locality and pays homage to Doha’s rich heritage. Seamless, unscripted customer service from staff who understand guest needs has allowed us to bring this vision to life through different touchpoints.
The property features 256 rooms, 32 suites, four royal suites, and 56 residences, in addition to three impressive dining concepts: The Salt Road, Mr. and Mrs. Hawker, and Mumble Jumble.
Located on the lobby level, The Salt Road challenges the senses by taking diners on an exploration of one of the earth’s oldest and most vital minerals – salt. The eclectic menu is inspired by global cuisine infused with the complementing flavours of different kinds of salt. Mr. and Mrs. Hawker, located on the third level, draws astounding flavour profiles from Singapore as the restaurant features open kitchens and encapsulates a market-to-table philosophy. The restaurant also has Doha’s only enclosed outdoor terrace with views of both the city and the sea. Mumble Jungle, located on the third floor, invites guests to embark on a rainforest expedition. The venue offers a variety of cocktails and mocktails, from classics to Afro-Cuban-inspired masterpieces.
Featuring an array of rooms ideal for families and individuals, the property offers a range of facilities for business and leisure travel. On the ground floor is the Andaz Lounge, a space for a private meeting or to catch up on emails. All rooms come equipped with a Chromecast flatscreen TV and a variety of other amenities. Every room offers spectacular views of either the sea or Doha’s Corniche (some, like the Royal Suite, overlook both).
For those seeking relaxation, the Alara Spa at Andaz offers an idyllic urban escape to relax. Guests can fully unwind with an invigorating hammam that draws on ancient Eastern wellness philosophies, and a variety of treatments including the traditional cleansing ritual, massages, and skincare treatments. There’s also an outdoor pool and the Wahah poolside bar which serves refreshments throughout the day. The Andaz Fitness Centre is a fully-equipped studio which guests can access 24 hours a day.
Andaz Doha’s central location means guests can reach Hamad International in less than 20 minutes and conveniently access major transport routes. The metro connects guests to numerous attractions such as the capital’s financial and cultural districts and Souq Waqif, City Centre Doha, Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre, The Gate Mall, and Al Dafna Park.
In short, Andaz Doha enables guests to go beyond the familiar and satiate their curiosity about the local Qatari culture through unscripted experiences that capture the spirit of the vibrant city. We look forward to seeing you soon to experience this exciting new property firsthand.”
