The property offers a range of culinary options and a four-floor wellness experience
Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay.
The hotel is located close to the city centre and key attractions and features a façade and main entrance almost identical to the original Waldorf Astoria in New York, referencing the brand’s heritage and legacy.
The 44-storey property features 283 rooms and suites, as well as 50 luxury apartments. In addition, each guest will be assigned a personal concierge during their stay.
Hilton president for Middle East & Africa Guy Hutchinson said: “Qatar is seeing strong growth in international travel, welcoming more than four million visitors in 2023 – and we are delighted to be expanding our presence in the country with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay.”
Hilton Luxury Brands senior vice-president and global head Dino Michael added: “The thoughtful design of Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay is evident from the moment a guest steps through the door, immediately creating a sense of place and building anticipation for the unforgettable experiences that await.
“This hotel is a stunning addition to our luxury portfolio in Qatar, reflecting our commitment to further Hilton’s luxury category growth in the Middle East.”
Set across four floors, the Waldorf Astoria Spa offers a range of wellness experiences, all with views of Qatar’s skyline. The spa’s bespoke features include salt inhalation relaxation and hydrotherapy pools, and thermal experiences including a sensory rain walk.
The spa has a dedicated fitness floor with both a mixed and a ladies-only Technogym fitness centre, Bikram yoga and meditation studios. Guests can also use the 26-metre marble-tiled indoor pool or the spa’s separate male and female pools with heated relaxation loungers.
Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay features a variety of food and beverage venues. Peacock Alley offers the brand’s afternoon tea, while The Cortland Bar serves artisanal cocktails and Levantine cuisine and shisha can be found at Al Fayrouz Terrace. Tribeca Market features five live cooking stations.
Additional venues that are set to open soon include MURU, which will be helmed by chef Mauro Colagreco, and YUN where guests will dine on modern Cantonese and Taishanese cuisine in a setting reminiscent of the original tea houses and luxury dining rooms of 1930s Hong Kong.
Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay is part of Hilton Honors, the guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 22 distinct hotel brands.
