Shaza Hotel Doha
As one of Doha’s newest landmarks, the five star hotel bridges the gap between art, culture and business
The Shaza Hotel in Doha brings to life the management teams’ vision to create a luxurious modern facility that pays respect to the traditions, values and cultures of the Middle East.
Located on a crossroads between the Museum of Islamic Art and the new National Museum in Qatar’s cultural district, the 15-storey building demanded the highest architectural standards and attention to detail.
The design signature for the hotel is its unique glazed façade; a series of seamless glass planes that wrap the building within a sleek, shimmering envelope. A frit pattern inspired by the traditional mashrabiya (a common architectural characteristic of Arab residencies), casts wonderfully intricate shadows inside the building throughout the day.
The 171 room, five-star facility includes three themed restaurants, a hammam steam room, spa and gym, rooftop pool and café, business lounge and events spaces.
