15. September 2017

Qatar’s exciting new lifestyle hotel, the Mondrian Doha, promises to be the it-place-to-be

Including a 24k gold private elevator leading to the most decadent VIP bridal suite in the world

The lavish 270-room hotel has been designed in collaboration with world-renowned Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders, along with South West Architecture – the architectural company of record for Mondrian Doha, responsible for the design of the building. The hotel will be an exceptional lifestyle offering for Doha and will be Marcel Wanders’ first hotel for the region.

Guests can choose from five distinctive room categories including a penthouse suite, studio suites, one and two bedroom suites and a range of standard guestrooms – all of which share the universal design details of Swarovski crystal chandeliers and sumptuous bespoke furniture in hues to mirror the desert.

Located on the 23rd floor of the property, the impeccable penthouse suite offers incredible attention to detail combined with panoramic 360-degree views of Doha throughout. Wanders’ iconic floating staircase and hand-painted One-Minute Delft blue vases set a striking and sophisticated atmosphere, while other locally-inspired features such as custom-designed Dean Majilis sofas and a “cabinet of information” filled with objects and details allow guests to familiarise themselves with the fascinating history and culture of the region. The Penthouse Suite has a living room, master king bedroom and two twin bedrooms, dining room and entertainment room complete with a pool table and piano.

The hotel will incorporate bespoke Marcel Wanders design features with influences from the beauty of local patterns, ornate Arabic writing and historic souks. The essence of One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern folk tales and stories, has also influenced the design of the space, which is detailed-orientated and complex, with a number of facets, levels and layers. Structurally, the building of Mondrian Doha is shaped like a falcon, with many references to the national bird of Qatar also found inside; from paintings and portraits to falcon headpieces and ornaments.
