Raffles Doha and Fairmont Doha debuted in Doha, Qatar, first opening exclusively to FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 guests and the VIP delegation. Located within Katara Towers, the dual-branded, 5-star properties also offer seven outstanding food and beverage outlets and restaurants to the public ahead of the rest of the property opening to the public.
In addition to a restaurant helmed by 3-star Michelin chef Enrico Cripa, other dining destinations include a lounge with more than 6,000 literary classics accompanying an extensive cigar collection, a restaurant serving Indian cuisine and an atrium lounge for afternoon tea.
Raffles Doha holds the title as Qatar’s only all-suite hotel, boasting views of Doha’s skyline. Each suite includes personalized butler service and bespoke amenities like a gallery wall with a collection of curated books and an in-suite boutique. Raffles Doha also features Katara Hall, a space for lavish events, complete with 22-meter-high ceilings, making the space the largest ballroom with daylight in Qatar.
Fairmont Doha offers 270 rooms and 92 suites, as well as four themed suites and one presidential suite, all inspired by interiors of luxury yachts. The property also includes Fairmont Gold, an exclusive lifestyle hotel floor, with gold mosaic wall tiling and rich wood paneling.
Both hotels will welcome guestroom reservations post-FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
