Ascott unveils refurbished Somerset West Bay Doha

The upgraded property aims to cater to both short and long-stay guests

Ascott has announced the re-opening of its fully-renovated Qatar property, Somerset West Bay Doha.

Owned by Katara Hospitality, the renovated hotel is part of the group’s  expansion plans for the region.

Somerset West Bay Doha originally opened in 2008, comprising 200 two- and three-bedroom apartments, and was primarily focused to cater to long-stay guests. The property now offers 228 units in one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments that cater to solo, business and leisure travellers.

Ascott managing director for the Middle East, Africa, Turkey and India Vincent Miccolis said: “We are delighted to announce the re-opening of our newly renovated flagship Qatar property, as we introduce stylish urban living in the heart of Doha once again.

“Sharing the neighbourhood with some of the country’s most iconic establishments, we are confident that Somerset West Bay Doha will provide an elevated accommodation offering for our existing traveller base as well as new markets. This much awaited re-opening is among the many exciting upcoming projects we have planned for the region in the coming months and beyond.”


Each guest room features floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Doha’s skyline, along with a range of modern appliances, a fully-equipped kitchen and a dedicated living and dining area.

Onsite facilities include a swimming pool, gym, business centre, breakfast lounge and children’s play area. As part of the property’s transition, a lobby café, restaurant, mini market and prayer room have been added.
