the first luxury lifestyle hotel in Qatar, opens a fully refurbished and evolved WAHM, an exclusive poolside lounge that is poised to gather the city’s savviest and most stylish show stoppers for a revelry redefined and reinvented.

WAHM’s new look can only be described as visionary, modern, dramatic, and provocative. The venue has undergone a complete transformation from a bar into a sophisticated lounge with the use of subtle vibrant colors while still highlighting the bold designs to create a magnetic feel. The gold fins-clad ceilings are brought in from the terrace to form a feature above and to the back of the bar, separated by mosaics to represent water falling to tie in with the Wet Deck. Rich green paneling surround the lounge with gold detailing and textured wall covering to add a sophisticated decadence. Beautiful handmade chairs covered in velvet give a feeling of softness and elegance.

United Design Partnership (UDP) is the team behind the interior renovation of WAHM and the recently revamped Market by Jean-Georges. “We wanted to refresh the WAHM concept with new designs using interesting materials contrasting each other in texture and color. The result has created a refined lounge while staying true to the W brand,” says UDP Design Director, Danielle Duggleby.

The offerings have also evolved to cater to the taste of guests who wish to go longer, stay later, connect and live life to the fullest. The dynamic menu gives the option to retox with handcrafted cocktails and skinny shims, detox with raw juices and mocktails, and even quench the craving for comfort food with hearty servings styled to make anyone feel good and prepared for the day or night ahead. Complementing this is the sound that sets the scene with resident and international DJs behind the decks playing world electronic music with eclectic oriental and occidental fusion sounds until sunset. This transitions into stimulating

beats and deep soulful house that progresses into the peak of the night with solid soulful grooves.

“WAHM has truly evolved as part of W Doha’s ethos of constant innovation and infusion of the element of surprise to produce unrivalled experiences that keep guests coming back for more. While the physical features and offerings may be reinvigorated, we can guarantee that you will come back to the same quality of service, still energetic, limitless, always spontaneous and outstanding. We invite you to discover WAHM and make it once again your favorite lounge in Doha,” says Safak Guvenc, Area Manager Qatar and Oman, Starwood Hotels &Resort and General Manager of W Doha.

WAHM is open in July daily from 5:00pm until 2:00am. The WAHM action is also about to get even more exciting with the addition of breakfast and lunch offerings and Saturday Sunset Sessions expected to launch in the coming months.
