The hotel features 217 guest rooms plus 67 lavish suites, four dining venues – plus a fifth opening in September, a two-level spa complex as well as a state-of-the-art fitness centre and second swimming pool.
A palette of warm colours and refined textures comes together in sophisticated spaces, dressed with bespoke furnishings and original artworks. One particularly striking piece is a sculpture by British artist Marc Quinn, renowned for his ability to physically and aesthetically capture the exquisite forms of flowers. His Etymology of the Baroque in the Hotel’s lobby depicts a white orchid at the height of its bloom in a way both startlingly real and fantastical at the same time.
Within the guest accommodation residential-style decoration and furnishings conceal myriad thoughtful touches and high-tech conveniences that allow guests to effortlessly create their own quiet hideaway, high-performance workspace or family home-away-from-home.
Views in all directions take in the glittering skyline, and to the east, Al Shaheed Park, the largest urban park in the country. Many suites are easily expanded for larger parties or entertaining, including the fabulous top-floor Royal Suite, the largest in the city.
In terms of the hotel’s F&B offering, Dai Forni on the 21st floor offers indoor and outdoor terrace seating, and two private dining rooms; Chef Fabio Quarta will serve up an international marketplace of flavours from South and East Asia at Elements, while guests can enjoy a variety of light dishes, refreshing drinks and shisha at poolside restaurant, Al Bandar.
