The Shangri-La brand’s first hotel in Qatar is a luxe high-rise that offers stunning views of Doha’s futuristic skyline. From the opulent lobby, which features marble columns and a glittering chandelier, to the seven drinking and dining options, this 272-room property offers all the hallmarks you’d expect from these experts in high-end hospitality. Starting at 500 square feet, the guestrooms are some of the largest in the city, and they feature free WiFi, 47-inch TVs, tea- and coffeemaking facilities, pillow menus and signature Shangri-La beds that use body contouring technology. Kick back by the pool (be sure to take advantage of the swim-up bar) or indulge in a treatment at CHI, The Spa. The dining options include Fuego for Argentine steaks and South American wines, Sridan for Middle Eastern specialties served at food stations modeled on an Arabian souk, and Yabby for seafood from the Arabian Gulf. Enjoy a nightcap at The Den, a wood-paneled piano bar, or head up to the hotel’s top floors to dance and drink at the Shanghai Club.
In the Area
The hotel is located between the City Center Mall (including direct links) and the Convention Center, a 20-minute drive from the airport and a short drive from top sights, including the Grand Mosque and Dhow Harbor. Check out the Museum of Islamic Art, the Al Koot Fort and the artificial island, the Pearl. Pick up souveniors at Souq Waqif, which translates as “standing market,” or head to the Gold Souk to shop for jewels.
How to Get There
Visited with my wife on a Sunday night. Lovely selection of dishes. Bruschetta selection to share for starters was just enough and the steak and Raviola, served with some flair by the resident Italian chef were both superb. A tiramisu finished off a wonderful meal. A carafe of house wine wasn’t outrageous by Doha standards. Superb meal - highly recommended.
I have been coming to this hotel for many months on business and leisure. I can honestly I have not found a better dedicated staff in Doha going to other hotels such as the Hilton or 4 seasons. The Business Lounge staff is a group of caring and smiling personel that will leave you relaxed and especially make it feel like a home and a family for those long stays. Notably specal mention to Kamol, Marie Cris, Ramy, Ranisha and Dora that were allways ensuring I get the best service and taking care of my wife as well.
The Sunset brunch.
I enjoyed this unique concept of a sunset brunch; in fact, I would call it as a sunset linner (lunch and dinner combined).
A great view from the 43rd floor and excellent food and amazing staffs and one of the good things are that Afterbrunch party right behind the restaurant where you could sip some of the best drinks by the best and friendliest bartenders in Doha, Karan and Cho Cho.
I am going back to this linner very soon.
