Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl - Doha, announces the opening of three new restaurants, offering delicious cuisines from the Iberian Peninsula to the Levant. El Faro, Al Sufra and Sawa, all located at Doha's new premier destination, offer guests a tantalising and uniquely different dining experience.
Situated at the hooves of the 18m horse statue by Iraqi born artist Ahmed Al Bahrani, Sawa lives up to its meaning in Arabic – ‘together’ –. This family friendly restaurant is personally curated by the Executive Chef Mattias Roock, and serves a blend of European and Mediterranean flavours in a bright and spacious setting with outdoor terraces. Guests can also now enjoy the only five-star Friday brunch on The Pearl-Qatar. The recently launched brunch in Sawa offers signature sweet and savoury recipes from all around the world, live entertainment and a children’s corner on the lawn.
El Faro, meaning ‘the lighthouse’ in Spanish, is the only authentic Spanish restaurant in Doha, and a stylish corner inside the hotel with an ambient central tapas counter and a peaceful outdoor terrace. Chef de Cuisine Raùl Cob from Andalucía prepares traditional recipes from culinary hotspots across his home country, including authentic tapas, pintxos and original paella. In keeping with the total experience in the hotel, art plays a big role, with a Picasso-inspired graffiti brick wall as the central backdrop.
Al Sufra, meaning ‘the dining room’ in Arabic, is the latest addition to the culinary collection of Marsa Malaz Kempinski. The captivating design of the restaurant, with the numerous patterns and water features, blends with the traditional Levantine flavours from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine. Chef de Cuisine Julien Al Khal created a menu with original recipes offering an unforgettable orientation to the cuisine of the Levant region.
Wissam Suleiman, General Manager, Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl – Doha, said: "During the design phase of our restaurants, we wanted them to be truly special; concepts and food unseen in Doha. Our hotel is a rapidly becoming destination for food lovers, no matter what their taste is. The feedback to date has been overwhelmingly positive, not only for the cuisine, but also for the service, the art displays and the interior design. Yet, our work is not over; with a few more restaurants and lounges due to open during the coming months.”
Marsa Malaz Kempinski offers exciting dining and entertainment options for visitors and guests across 11 food and beverage outlets. In addition to El Faro, Sawa and Al Sufra, three further restaurants will open soon, including Toro Toro, Antica Pesa and Nozomi. Guests can also enjoy two cafés, an al fresco beach-side restaurant, and a sophisticated lounge with molecular creations. Illusion, the unparalleled rooftop lounge with large open-air terraces will also open later this year.
