    Over five years in the making, The Grand Heritage Doha Hotel & Spa, is now a reality and has already become a style setter as the super luxury hotel property in Doha, Qatar where the pace of new hotel openings reflects the city’s emergence as a world-class travel destination. This new Chateau-inspired, 137-room, five-star hotel’s arrival in the marketplace is spot on and in time to play a pivotal role as Doha completes its transformation – from commercial and shipping centre to a world-class destination for tony travellers and a sophisticated social centre with its own unique brand.

    The developer, Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani, wanted the property to be a defining landmark for world travellers and well-heeled sophisticates – an iconic property that stands out on the ever changing skyline, distinguishing Doha from neighbouring Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

    By all measure Sheikh Hamad has succeeded. Since the recent opening, The Grand Heritage’s occupancy rate has become the envy of Doha’s hoteliers. Moreover, Sheikhs and leading socialites living in the area have fully embraced the property making it their own informal “private” club. This iconic property was created by J/Brice Design International.

    The Grand Heritage was created in the architectural style of a fine European country home while respecting regional aesthetics by incorporating distinctively Arabian themes into the design. In terms of setting, The Grand Heritage excites all the senses; sight – touch – taste, within the property and the interior environment has a distinct charm which is reinforced by the well-balanced dimensioning of the spaces and fluidity of the plan.

    Sheikh Hamad recognized the need to create a dramatic setting or sense of place for the Grand Heritage, and has committed generous funding for exterior landscaping and gardens reminiscent of Versailles to enhance the arrival experience.

    As a practical matter, every guest room is accessorized with 40-inch flat screen TVs, complimentary wireless Internet access, Nespresso coffee and tea machines, and laptop compatible safety deposit box.
