Are you thinking of taking a short but unforgettable break? Then Park Hyatt Doha is the place you’re looking for. Situated in Msheireb Downtown Doha, the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project, Park Hyatt Doha will give you a peaceful stay whether you’re visiting for leisure or business.

We recently stayed over the weekend to give you an in-depth look at what you can experience at this hidden retreat in the cultural heart of the city.

Arrival and check-in at Park Hyatt Doha

You can enter the hotel from its two entrances, one from the Sikkat Al Wadi Msheireb street, (walking distance from Souq Waqif) or the other entrance within a few steps away from Msheireb Metro central station. Both entries are understated and low-key, a glimpse of the refined luxury within. Once inside, don’t forget to look up because you’ll be amazed by the high ceiling filled with Qatari-inspired patterns.

The service staff (doormen, concierge, and security) at the entrances were courteous and helpful, ushering guests to the lobby and reception for check-in.

Unlike other hotels, Park Hyatt Doha’s reception desk isn’t located on the ground floor but instead tucked away on an upper floor, giving the guest a more private and exclusive experience. The front office staff were friendly and the check-in was a breeze.

Park Hyatt Doha Park Suite

Tucked away at the end of the hallway, the door to the Park Suite was unassuming and almost blending in with the wooden walls. The 90 sqm premium suite features one king bed, living room, dining area, and a spa-like bathroom.

The living room is the first thing you’ll see upon entering the room and guests are greeted with fresh flowers, berries in little glass containers, and an amazing chocolate sculpture shaped like the National Museum of Qatar.

A heaping bowl of assorted fresh fruit, a Strawberry Fever drink, nuts, and dates selection, followed by a welcome Arabic coffee, are waiting for the guests.

The bedroom is modern minimalist but luxurious and accented by wooden paneling with Qatari-inspired pattern and abstract blue artwork. It features a Hyatt Grand Bed which was a joy to sleep in - giving you a good night’s sleep and waking you up refreshed. There’s also a 65-inch smart flat-screen TV, a reading nook, and a bedside clock with a built-in wireless phone charger & USB sockets.

The marble bathroom is as big as the bedroom, with a separate shower, toilet, closet, mirrors, double vanity sink, interesting light fixture, and a freestanding soaking tub with a small TV. Le Labo Santal 33 bath toiletries are strategically placed throughout the bathroom and the toilet/washroom near the suite door.

Wouldn't you want to soak in this deep tub with a view?

But the piece de resistance of this suite, especially the one assigned to us, was the stunning views. Not just from the floor-to-ceiling windows but also from the bathroom. You’ll be treated to the scenic Doha skyline, the Corniche, and the surrounding Msheireb Downtown from day to night. The windows, blackout blinds, lights, and air conditioning, can be controlled by the touch screen panels you can find throughout the suite.

Finally the refined touches such as scent, books, chocolates and the sustainable orientation present all over the room elements are what will surely make you reminisce about the hotel.

For those who like to carry many gadgets during their stay, fret not because there are at least 14 power outlets you can choose to charge from inside the suite.

Park Hyatt Doha is the highest building in Msheireb Downtown Doha so it doesn’t come as a surprise that Sora, located on the 21st floor, gives guests a magnificent view especially at its outdoor dining terrace.

The rooftop Japanese restaurant and lounge is sophisticated in all ways, be it the interiors, the service, or the food. Currently open for late lunch and dinner, dining guests can indulge in upscale Japanese dishes and the unique culinary art of Robata (meat grilled over charcoal).

Some of the mouthwatering dishes served at SORA

The gastronomic journey starts with a welcome drink and a savory Taiyaki. Guests can then choose from a selection of Nigiri, Sashimi, Maki Rolls, Appetizers, Soups, Robata, Tempura, Side dishes, and Desserts. Signature drinks are available along with a host of other beverages. Sora also offers gluten-free options.

We were treated to their bestsellers, the presentations of which were all well thought out and intricately styled. The dishes were all a show-stopper, impressing the diners as soon as it’s served on the table until the very last bite. The Salmon Sashimi was served with caviar and gold flakes while the Akira Maki was a glorious combination of shrimp tempura and avocado.

The Wagyu M5 Beef Tenderloin was delightfully juicy and tender served with grilled eggplant topped with bonito flakes. You’ll relish every bite of the Blue Ocean Tempura for it was perfectly crispy with a light batter. If you have a hard time choosing among the delectable desserts, just go for the Garden of Zen which is perfect for dessert lovers. You get a taste of everything and more.
