Mondrian Doha, the latest luxury hotel in Qatar, will open its doors to guests this winter with room reservation bookings available from October onwards. Managed by sbe, the 270-room property is located near Lagoona Mall and Lusail City.
The Mondrian Doha building has been attracting attention for months with its unique falcon-shape. Designed by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the hotel interiors reflect the essence of ‘One Thousand and One Nights’, and features ornate Arabic writing and elements from historic souks. Standout memorable elements include giant columns with golden eggs, a ‘tree of life’ comprised of flowers, falcon video art, patterned carpets, ornate stained glass and intricate mosaic tiling.
The penthouse suite on the 23rd floor features panoramic 360 degree views across Doha, while the bridal suite has its own private elevator access to the 2000 square foot ballroom. The iconic spiral floating staircase will take guests on a visual journey up four levels to a viewing platform. And a stained glass dome skylight is the spectacular feature to be found on the 27th floor.
Mondrian Doha will have four restaurant outlets: Cut by Wolfgang Puck, Morimoto, Walima and Hudson Tavern. There will also be three bars, Smoke & Mirrors, Rise, and Black Orchid, and the popular cafe Magnolia Bakery will be located in the lobby.
