Shangri-La espande il suo portfolio di hotel in Medio Oriente con una nuova struttura in Qatar
Housed in a gleaming 50-storey property in the commercial district of West Bay, the hotel, designed to resemble a falcon’s head in recognition of Qatari falconry – the country’s historic and elite pastime, is adorned with museum-quality art pieces honouring the rich heritage of the Qatari peninsula which are on loan from the Sheikh Faisal Collection.
Located close to the business and diplomatic areas, Shangri-La Hotel, Doha offers a direct link to the City Centre Mall, the city’s largest mall, and is only five minutes from the waterfront promenade.
References to a traditional Arabian welcome begin when guests arrive at the hotel. In the driveway, a prodigious bottle tree greets visitors, while a falconer in traditional garb with the recognisable bird of prey perched on his arm shows the warmth of welcome intrinsic to this part of the world. Guests are presented with a cup of rich coffee, made by the hotel’s specialist coffee maker according to a nomadic recipe, to reflect another warm Arabian gesture that is the hotel’s signature blend of East meets East hospitality.
