Background Rising high over the Arabian Gulf in the iconic Katara Towers, with spectacular views of the Doha waterfront and the ultra-modern Lusail, Fairmont Doha is a destination hotel for sophisticated travel connoisseurs.

What’s it like? Fairmont Doha is a seamless blend of contemporary design and opulence that retains the authentic,
rich Qatari heritage and culture. It is the perfect choice for discerning travellers.

Where is it? Set in the stunning Katara Towers in Doha’s seafront Marina District, Fairmont Doha overlooks the glittering Arabian Gulf. This prestigious address is close to Lusail Iconic Stadium, Marina Promenade, and the designer boutiques at Place Vendôme Mall.

Rooms I stayed in a Junior Suite which is 63 sqm in size offering a walk-in closet, modern luxuries, and a breathtaking view. The hotel’s 362 rooms and suites evoke sleek luxury with white-leather headboards and glossy dark woods. The key features include advanced technology, Posturepedic mattresses, a walk-in bar, a dressing table, a walk-in closet, and a valet delivery closet box. Sparkling with 18k gold tiles, bathrooms include a separate shower, generous tub, and TV.

Food and Drink I ate a delicious and wholesome breakfast of fried eggs, sourdough toast, a platter of fresh fruit
and freshly squeezed orange juice at Vaya the colourful Latin Mercado, which also specialises in Latin American cuisine. Guests can experience four additional innovative venues namely Masala Library, Provok, Dôme and Cyra for local and international dining and drinks, along with 24-hour in-room dining.

Meetings With more than 1,500 sqm of outstanding event spaces, Fairmont Doha is the ideal setting for any type of
function, from private board meetings and conferences to glamorous weddings and receptions. Three interconnecting function rooms, an executive boardroom, smart technology, and a dedicated events team ensure a seamless flow of the schedule.

Leisure The Fairmont Spa offers cutting-edge regeneration treatments, the sauna, hammam and steam rooms for wellness and the well-being of its guests. With nine treatment and relaxation rooms, revitalising and detoxifying massages, vitamin drips, hairdresser and barber, guests are assured of total pampering and rejuvenation.

Verdict It was a delightful and luxurious stay. I highly recommend this idyllic property which redefines and takes luxury to the next level.
