The 237-room waterfront hotel now features a soothing spectrum of blues and beiges reflecting the colors of the seaside desert landscape.
Pierre-Yves Rochon said: “We were inspired by Doha and its relationship with the outdoors. We researched the local culture and the artistic elements that might tie into the story of the hotel. I wanted to bring a new dimension of modernity to the property and enhance the guest experience with uplifting design elements and spaces.”
Originally opened in 2005, the 237-room waterfront hotel now features a soothing spectrum of blues and beiges reflecting the colors of the sky, sea, sand, and earth. Guests can also look forward to enjoying new facilities including automated curtains and lighting systems, as well as temperature management preservation technology within the newly installed windows.
Upon entering the property, guests will be welcomed by “a grandiose door reminiscent of grande dame entrances” in the lobby. The centerpiece is a hand-blown glass chandelier, which complements the bespoke Italian furnishings.
The Seasons Tea Lounge now comes with an outdoor terrace, while the lounge itself has been revamped to resemble a classic Parisian café. Nods to the Middle East are evident from the marbled floor, which is inspired by Islamic mosaic tile work, along with oriental sofas and cashmere-patterned fabrics surrounding openwork tea tables.
Meanwhile, the revamped Arabica café has a coffee and dessert bar, perfect for guests with a sweet tooth.
