This imposing hotel holds its own in Doha’s futuristic cityscape while keeping in touch with its roots.
Grand Hyatt Doha Hotel hugs the shoreline of the West Bay Lagoon district, a short hop from the city centre. The hotel is in a perfect spot for culture-seekers and adventure-lovers alike. Spend your days mixing the art museums and galleries, traditional souks and cultural icons of this dynamic city with a shot of adrenaline-filled dune bashing, desert safaris and watersports. Once you’ve had your fill, retreat to the hotel for decadent spa treatments, leisurely beach lounging and gourmet experiences.
Menus at the four restaurants draw on inspiration from around the globe – from authentic Thai food at Isaan and classic Italian plates at Rocca, to Middle Eastern cuisine at Majlis and West Coast comfort food at Santa Monica Breakfast Club. There’s a sleek, wood-panelled bar for a nightcap, often with live music, and a casual café for homemade treats – it’d be a crime not to try all 10 cheesecake flavours on offer.
Rooms and suites are cool and calming spaces, with contemporary Arabian décor and private balconies – many overlooking the lagoon or lush gardens. And the room to book: a Grand Suite for super-spacious digs with sea views and separate living and dining rooms.
In the West Bay Lagoon area, near the Pearl-Qatar
