The Mondrian Doha hotel was designed by local firm South West Architecture for the hospitality company SBE and is shortlisted in the Event Spaces category at the upcoming AHEAD MEA 2018 awards. Recognized as one of the best interior designers in the world, the Dutch Marcel Wanders describes the luxury hotel as an eccentric and theatrical space with a unique design.
In addition to 270 rooms and suites with a luxury interior design, modern furniture pieces and extravagant spaces in his distinctive maximalist style, the top interior designer featured eight innovative bars and fine restaurants featuring both regional and international cuisine, an indoor/outdoor rooftop pool bar, ultra-modern meeting and conference venues and a world-class spa. Mondrian Doha, as one of the best hotels in Qatar, offers a variety of stylish and unique options for meetings and special events.
“For the design of Mondrian Doha and everything we do, the locale is super important,” explains Marcel Wanders. “To create the hotel, we studied the city, we studied the people. We don’t create interiors, we create destinations and Mondrian Doha is a destination in itself that needs to be discovered.”
The luxury hotel with a spectacular exclusive design features a 21,528 square feet/2000 square meter Ballroom that can hold up to 1,500 guests for a wedding or special event. This majestic Ballroom also offers a private, panoramic elevator to take the Bride and Groom or VIPs directly to and from the 6,458 square foot/600 square meter Bridal Suite. The marvelous hotel features a large atrium and lobby space filled with giant white lamps and a black helical staircase that has a balustrade with an ornate cut-out pattern, which extends up over four floors.
The Mondrian Doha in Qatar is a 5-star destination designed by Marcel Wanders and each space possesses its own identity, allowing guests to form a collection of stories woven with the main theme that runs throughout. Bespoke designs and Marcel Wanders’ signature style combine to create a truly holistic, sensual and memorable experience.
