Pullman Doha West Bay, the first Pullman in the heart of Doha, is opening the doors on a stylish addition to the iconic West Bay skyline and bringing a contemporary twist to Doha’s diverse hospitality scene…
The upscale Pullman hotel in central Doha is poised to welcome residents, leisure and business travellers with its 468 guestrooms, suites and apartments, innovative culinary concepts, artful touches, flexible meeting spaces and vibrant lifestyle facilities.
“We have been given a wonderful opportunity to open the first Pullman hotel and introduce the brand to Doha ahead of the anticipated World Cup later this year,” said Ehab Barghouth, General Manager, Pullman Doha West Bay. “Featuring a smart and modern design, best-in-class business facilities, reliable service and a balanced approach to work and wellbeing, I am confident Pullman Doha West Bay will become a standout favourite of Doha residents and international visitors alike.”
Inspired by the colours of the sand, Pullman Doha is filled with light and brightness, and the high-end materials in the interior create an impression of understated glamour. Upon arrival, guests enter a generous lobby space and are welcomed by an impressive sculptural globe. The piece of art created by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur represents a time, place, and sense of travel and discovery, embodying the spirit of Pullman. As guests walk through the lobby, they will find a stunning collection of playful sculptures complemented by carefully curated decorative artefacts and books. Quirky and bold, these installations add character to the hotel design and enrich the guest experience. The art concept will be developed and completed later this year with the launch of the Artist Playground, a dedicated space in the lobby for inspirational art exhibitions by local and international artists.
Resolutely chic and modern, the 375 guestrooms and suites, which include four Pullman Penthouses, span 47 floors and feature 11 categories. All rooms offer an extensive selection of C.O. Bigelow amenities, a UK handcrafted skincare brand. The guestrooms also feature a pillow and duvet menu for an ultimate good night’s sleep experience – the core of Pullman’s Bedding concept. The hotel also shelters 93 stylish apartments, all fully furnished, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and some available with balconies.
“Our apartments cater for demand in extended stays and serviced living options, combining the luxury of five-star hotel and comfort of your own home,” commented Barghouth, General Manager, Pullman Doha West Bay.
The hotel offers multiple dining options with fresh, fine cuisine for all palates. Full of light and brightness, Avenue restaurant invites guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This venue is themed around bringing people together through the restaurant’s signature concept – CuisInMotion, which gives diners an opportunity to watch the culinary team in action or hop on a gastronomic journey through four cosmopolitan avenues of the world – Champs Elysees in France, Tsukiji in Japan, Bosphorus in Turkey and Broadway in the US. Food lovers can also enjoy the best flavours of Italy at the internationally renowned BiCE. The restaurant overlooks the city and features an impressive cellar. For something more relaxed, guests can try The Score, a trendy gastro and sports bar that blends a casual settings with contemporary American cuisine. Lastly, located in the heart of the hotel, The Junction makes for a perfect hub to socialize over selection of healthy dishes, sweet and savoury delicacies or linger over classic afternoon tea with a modern twist.
The Meet/Play concept by Pullman reflects the need of today’s entrepreneurs to combine efficiency and pleasure for a fresh take on the traditional aspects of a meeting. The extensive range of events facilities in Pullman Doha West Bay creates an environment that enables guests to push their limits and unlock potential. All seven meeting rooms are hyper-connected, smartly furnished and offering cutting-edge AV facilities. The ‘Play’ part comes with a ‘chill out’ room right next to the meeting spaces, where delegate can recharge and disconnect over a cup of coffee or play foosball.
And finally, on a suitably lavish note, the Al Thuraya Ballroom is one of the largest in Qatar and can accommodate up to 700 people. Featuring high ceilings, Arabesque-designed walls, stunning Swarovski chandelier and an expansive private bridal room, the venue sets the perfect stage for dream weddings, milestone celebrations and gala events.
