Located in the former Ministry of the Interior building, The Ned Doha includes Ned’s Club, a members’ club that gives access to spaces including a rooftop terrace, 90 bedrooms, a health club with spa, gym and 30m outdoor pool.
The 90 bedrooms at The Ned Doha range in size from intimate to 12 large-scale suites – all with a nod to 1970s glamour.
Using The Ned London as inspiration, the new scheme is set over five floors, with architecture by David Chipperfield Architects and interiors by Soho House Design, and has that trademark ground floor atrium with live performance stage in the centre, surrounded by eateries.
Diners will be able to visit Cecconi’s, Kaia, Nickel Lounge and The Electric Diner, while members can visit Millie’s on the ground floor, or Ned’s Club Upstairs.
The rooftop space is inspired by 70s glamour, with warm woods, statement furniture and warm woods, paired with a cracking view out to West Bay and over the Diwan.
Other restaurants to look out for at The Ned Doha include Malibu Kitchen, a California-inspired outdoor spot which is open year-round (with air-conditioning, of course), and Hadika, a shaded outdoor garden serving up Levantine mezze family-style.
The club pool, which is also 70s inspired with terrazzo flooring and green and white striped daybeds, will only be open for hotel residents and members.
The Ned Doha is the third outpost for the brand, which includes original The Ned London, opened in 2017, and The Ned NoMad in New York, which opened earlier this year.
