When one speaks of the epitome of luxury in Doha, there is one place that will always be prominent: W Doha Hotels & Residences. One of the luxury lifestyle hotels that has always been hyped about, a staycation from W Doha had Anushay Khan’s name written all over it.
“W Doha, for me, takes the award home due to their attention to detail. From the little things from a nail kit to the essentials like a hairbrush, I found everything ready for me, with the cheekiest packaging that I loved, right in this suite.”
The iconic hanging blue lanterns of W Doha,
that serve as the hotel’s trademark, have always been my favourite. From the majestic décor of the lobby to the welcoming sofa themes, it’s a treat to walk into this hotel at any given hour of the day! The comfortable feeling of having a luxury home sets right in when you’re here to spend a night. I was received at the reception and checked-in within minutes (who doesn’t like some a swift check-in?) and then, the real journey began.
THE WOW SUITE
For the weekend, I was the glorious Queen of the Wow Suite. With a lounge big enough to have a party, I was absolutely thrilled at the jackpot that I had hit with this place. I had my very own study table (where I’m actually typing this!) with the most magnificent view of the sea – a treat to actually work from here. The lounge had a hanging cane swing chair facing towards the view and I do not remember being at peace this way, while I read a book, for such a long time; a picturesque moment I believe all of us book worms dream about. The living room was decorated with a fringe ceiling canopy, giving it a very lavish look to the interior of the suite. The floor-to-ceiling windows, the amenities, every little thing counts. The bedroom is nothing short of regal with a touch of modernity. Honestly, it is like one walked into a movie where you were headlining the best show ever. W Doha, for me, takes the award home due to their attention to detail. From the little things from a nail kit to the essentials like a hairbrush, I found everything ready for me, with the cheekiest packaging that I loved, right in this suite. Even though the location of the hotel is prime and right in the middle of West Bay, I never felt the need to run out and grab the necessities for the stay. All in all, my suite was a sweet little package from a match made in staycation heaven! ‘WOW’ is indeed the appropriate word for this masterpiece.
As I was taking a tour of the hotel, I absolutely loved the different options they have for their Residences at the hotel. The choices of property vary from ‘Witty’, ‘Warm’ and ‘Wonderful’, further embodying the cheeky concept that W Doha is home too. This certainly looks like the ideal option for someone who is looking for exemplary luxury that W Doha Hotel & Residences are known for.
“La Spiga by Paper Moon, Market, Spice Market, WeTox, W Café – I don’t think there is a single name in this list which is not popular in the city.
La Spiga by Paper Moon, Market, Spice Market, WeTox, W Café – I don’t think there is a single name in this list which is not popular in the city. I enjoyed my breakfast at the Market, which displayed an array of delicacies and also had the option for A la carte. I devoured my eggs benedict right away and particularly wolfed down the pancakes that were served. The service was impeccable from the second I walked in and there is nothing else that sets you up for the day as an experience as good as this.
For me, the prices of the Express Lunch at the restaurants blew me away. It is like having couture for a high street price! La Spiga by Paper Moon and Spice market hosted me for their express lunch over the weekend. My experience at La Spiga was thoroughly joyful – not only is the manager the best conversationalist out there, but, I dined there twice on account of the food being THAT good! Their unique ‘lemony’ twist to Ravioli is something that I would recommend to everyone! In addition to that, I tried La Spiga’s express lunch and never knew that some splendid food could be bought at this price. The fact that their menu keeps rotating makes it all the better. Whether it is the refreshing Millefoglie alle fragole e crema Chantilly in this hot weather or the chicken skewers & Japanese cheesecake from Spice Market, you cannot go wrong with your food at W Doha. Attentive staff, quick service and immediate refills of your drinks; it’s an experience that you must try!
“My skin came out glowing, smoother than ever and absolutely bacteria free. Since my skin needed hydration, Samia infused a selection of vitamins to balance my skin followed by another mask for brightening and nourishment.”
The Bliss Spa has made its name over the years due to the various treatments that they have introduced. From the slimming packages to treatments that are catered specifically for your skin type, the shellac manicures to the hot massage, the Bliss Spa is aptly named: to give you a blissful time. I indulged myself with the Oxycryo Facial and I finally got to experience the worldly popular phrase ‘glow up!’. I was managed by Samia who talked me through what to expect during my upcoming one-hour session. The treatment started with Samia analyzing my skin and telling me about the points that needed to be looked after. We spoke of hydration, the elasticity of the skin and the type of treatment that would be suitable for me at that time. My exfoliating treatment included cleansing with milk, enzyme peel, a pore mask, and scaling through the Oxycryo machine. The machine basically blows cold oxygen on your face which encourages collagen regrowth. My skin came out glowing, smoother than ever and absolutely bacteria free. Since my skin needed hydration, Samia infused a selection of vitamins to balance my skin followed by another mask for brightening and nourishment. She used the oxygen mask to penetrate the skin which helps to boost collagen and cell renewal. The real-life glow up was so fantastic, you can imagine how I felt the rest of the day!
My entire experience at W Doha was other-worldly. Living up to their reputation as a luxury boutique hotel, my weekend was a display of the magnificent qualities of W Doha. For me, this memorable stay had been compete due to attention to detail and their thoughtful rapport showcased at every level. The service is not just restricted to the restaurants here, I was welcomed back every time that I went out, kudos to the staff at the entrance of the hotel, and it really makes the guest feel like they truly belong. I cannot help but recommend this to you all; whether you are coming to Qatar or live here – W Doha Residences and Suites is your place to be.
