Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl-Doha, Qatar’s new ultra-luxury resort has officially opened its doors to welcome visitors and guests. As Europe's oldest luxury hotel group, Kempinski is synonymous with personal service and hospitality. It is complemented by the exclusivity and individuality of its properties, personified in its new hotel located on the sought after The Pearl-Qatar

Wissam Suleiman, General Manager, comments: “This hotel is a benchmark for personalised luxury in Doha. From the opulent corridors and public spaces, to the luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, to a selection of the finest restaurants and lounges, all of these premium offerings will offer an unrivalled and tailored experience for each and every one of our guests.”

The new premier destination is a testament to Kempinski’s landmark properties, with Marsa Malaz Kempinski showcasing the finest European architecture blended with traditional Arabian elements - a true palace in every sense of the word. There are over half a million pieces of mother of pearl across the hotel; 330,000 decorating the walls and 280,000 hand carved into the furniture. Additionally, the stunning hand-blown Murano glass oyster chandeliers from Italy showcase Kempinski’s attention to detail, boasting over 44,000 pieces across four chandeliers within the hotel’s lobby, taking over six weeks to assemble.
