Pullman Doha West Bay opened its doors on August 1, becoming a stylish addition to the iconic West Bay skyline.
The new property provides a contemporary twist to Doha’s diverse hospitality offering, welcoming residents, leisure and business travellers with its 468 rooms, suites and apartments, innovative culinary concepts, artful touches, flexible meeting spaces and vibrant lifestyle facilities.
Immersive Art and Vibrant design
Inspired by the colours of the desert sands, Pullman Doha is filled with light and brightness, while the highend materials used throughout the interior create an impression of understated glamour. Always alive and changing throughout the day, thanks to the vibrant themed lounges and signature restaurants, Pullman Doha is the ideal location for both business and pleasure. Upon arrival, guests enter a generous lobby space and are welcomed by an impressive sculptural globe. The eye-catching piece, created by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur, represents a time, place and sense of travel and discovery, embodying the spirit of Pullman. As guests walk through the lobby, they will find a stunning collection of playful sculptures complemented by carefully curated decorative artefacts and books. Quirky and bold, these installations add character to the hotel design and enrich the guest experience.
The art concept will be completed later this year with the launch of the Artist Playground, a dedicated space in the lobby for inspirational art exhibitions by local and international artists.

Accommodation at the new Pullman is contemporary and sleek in design offering 375 hotel rooms and suites along with 93 apartments, spanning 47 floors and featuring 11 different categories.
- Every room features an extensive selection of C.O Bigelow amenities – a UK handcrafted skincare brand of delicious products for face and body, created exclusively for Pullman.

To further enrich the dining experience, an impressive, stylish kitchen gives guests an opportunity to watch the culinary team in action and witness the effect of CuisInMotion – the restaurant’s signature concept.
BiCE: A world of Italian authenticity, with colours and flavours born from a concept going back to 1926. This is the spot where succulent cuisine becomes edible theatre. Bold and sharp colours adorn the walls, elegant line drawings hang alongside black and white photography and the show kitchen transports guests to the birthplace of Italian dishes. Guests relish in a chic ambiance with a city view, feasting on Italian classics with a memorable contemporary twist. The bistro side, designed to gather friends, creates outstanding experiences with its eye-catching décor. Here, authentic Italian bites and a large assortment of gourmet meats and cheese platters pair with a striking selection of regional Italian beverages.
The Score: Opening later this year, this trendy gastro and sports bar with a fully-fitted beverage counter blends a casual setting with contemporary American cuisine. Traditional favourites and ‘must tries’ such as The Massive Beef Rib Burger and Any Given Sunday for dessert, are served alongside a wide range of beverages with live screening of major sports events.
The Junction: Escape the hustle and bustle of West Bay at this artistic, colourful and interactive lobby hotspot. Offering freshly brewed coffees, sweet and savoury delicacies, afternoon tea and a selection of healthy choices, the Junction is a perfect hub for a morning meeting, midday snack or evening catchups with friends.
