Raffles and Fairmont Make Co-Debut in Qatar

Luxury hotels Raffles Doha and Fairmont Doha have opened in Qatar, and are exclusively welcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 guests and the VIP delegation. The dual-branded Raffles Doha and Fairmont Doha are housed within Katara Towers.

Seven F&B outlets have opened to the public—four located within Raffles Doha and three in Fairmont Doha. Through advanced reservation only, non-staying guests can book to enjoy gastronomic experiences at Raffles Doha’s Alba, which is the first overseas outpost for the restaurant by three-star Michelin chef Enrico Crippa; L’Artisan, which celebrates the art of modern dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; Blue Cigar, a lounge which offers 6,000 literary classics including some first edition classics as well as a bespoke cigar collection; and Malaki Lounge, which spans the atrium lounge and ground floor, and serves afternoon tea.

Diners can head to Fairmont Doha to savor Indian cuisine at Masala Library, the concept by restaurateur, television host and author Jiggs Kalra; and the Latin American cuisine of Vaya, a restaurant with open kitchens and interactive service stations and where South American-inspired dishes and drinks are prepared tableside. Guests can also choose to visit Dôme, a chic tea lounge that serves afternoon tea and French-inspired bites and sips.

Raffles Doha suite

The 132-key Raffles Doha is touted as Qatar’s only all-suite hotel. Each suite experience is enhanced with personalized butler service, and bespoke amenities including an exclusive scent from Frederic Malle, a gallery wall with a collection of curated books, and an in-suite boutique. The hotel is also home to nine spa and fitness suites, each equipped with treatment rooms, and some offering private outdoor terraces and plunge pools, in addition to Katara Hall, a ballroom with 72-foot-high ceilings.

The Fairmont Doha offers 270 rooms, 92 suites, four themed suites, and one presidential suite, all inspired by the interiors of luxury yachts along with an exclusive lifestyle hotel floor, Fairmont Gold, which is a hotel-within-a-hotel experience. Featuring gold mosaic wall tiling and rich wood paneling, the rooms have a spacious layout, a separate guest bathroom and a large furnished terrace offering panoramic coastline views.

Raffles Doha and Fairmont Doha will welcome guestroom reservations post-FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
