W Doha Hotel & Residences, the first luxury lifestyle hotel in Qatar, bagged five prestigious awards at the Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards 2016 held on April 27th. The awards are a celebration of the very best culinary talent in the city and the result of 12 months of reviewing by a panel of food experts to find the top restaurants Doha has to offer.

This year, Market by Jean-Georges took home two awards including “Best Business Lunch” and “Best European”. W Doha’s La Spiga by Paper Moon also won in the category of “Best Italian” and Spice Market in “Best Asian”. In addition, W Café finished as Highly Commended for “Best Afternoon Tea”. Finally, the hotel manager of W Doha, Esra Parin, who previously held the position of the B&F Director, received the “Outstanding Contribution” award for her notable work in shaping not just the hotel’s B&F outlets but the whole industry throughout her 20 years of experience, four years of which were spent with the W Doha.

“We thank Time Out Doha for recognizing our hard work. My sincere gratitude also goes out to all our B&F talents, particularly our Hotel Manager, Esra Parin who has played a lead role in ensuring our outlets always have the best caliber of team members and products. In the past years, W Doha has paved the way for some of the most innovative concepts in the hospitality sector such as the ‘Menugram’, our menus uploaded on Instagram to ensure guests can access them in this popular platform; and our whatsapp services and reservation system via our social media channels that also allow them to reach us whenever, wherever. Accolades like these and the ongoing support of our guests, both old and new, really push us to be better and consistently exceed our guests’ expectations,” says Safak Guvenc, Area Manager Qatar and Oman, Starwood Hotels & Resort and General Manager of W Doha.
