DOHA, QATAR, JULY 22ND, 2023 Abesq Doha Hotel & Residences managed by IHG Hotels & Resorts opens its doors on unveiling a fusion of Qatari heritage and avant-garde modern design in the heart of Downtown Doha.
Sebastian Thomas, Hotel Manager Abesq Doha Hotel & Residences, said: “It is with great pleasure that we are opening the doors to the wonderful Abesq Doha today, showcasing relaxed hospitality, with the warmest of welcomes and thoughtful touches. Thank you to our dedicated team for their tremendous efforts, talent, and contribution to this launch.”
He added, “From staying fit in our state-of-the-art fitness centre or relaxing in our infinity pool overlooking West Bay, you can make it a stay to remember. With its eye-catching modern-day design, the hotel aims to make our guests feel at home, enjoying luxurious comforts and amenities.”
Raoul Steinbach, Director of Food & Beverage Abesq Doha Hotel & Residences, commented: “Abesq is home to five dining destinations where our chefs will take guests on a gastronomic journey to discover a world of flavours with the freshest ingredients.”
The upscale and elegant Asilah offers exotic and authentic Moroccan fare with mezze, grills, fragrant plates, a julep bar and shisha terrace. The Oat House promises to deliver the most popular dishes ‘made better’ as it reimagines the World’s favourites, focused on wellness and irresistible flavours. Named after August Zang, credited with inventing the croissant, is a historic Viennoiserie, a beautiful specialty boutique of modern Viennoise single origin coffees and delicious patisserie treats. A spritz pool bar called Sprezzi offers bold, raw and authentic fare from the streets of Naples. Here guests can unwind, rejuvenate and feel refreshed with a swim in the exquisite infinity pool and revel in the panoramic views of Doha’s iconic shimmering skyline and the azure waters of the Arabian sea.
Art inspired by desert tribes
The hotel’s remarkable design style and atmosphere imparts a compelling energy, making guests feel special and part of something unique. Inspired by the crafts of nomadic desert tribes using vibrant woven fabrics and wood lattice they depict vast desert landscapes and sand dunes in earth tones and golden hues – all set under the night sky and stars that guided Bedouins through the ages.
Ideal location to explore Doha
Located in the city centre of Doha, Abesq reflects the vibrant downtown area with its spirited design style, merging creativity with laid back comfort. Stepping into the hotel, a mere stone’s throw from the city’s major tourist attractions and business district, guests are met with the scents of warm oriental spices and oud, fusing white honey, amber and sandalwood fragrances throughout the public areas.
Lifestyle comforts and amenities
Business partners and guests can experience some of the 283 luxurious guest rooms, spacious suites and stylish serviced apartments with one, two or three bedrooms, all of which feature the very best in lifestyle comforts from fine linens to luxurious bath accessories.

Everything is designed to make guests feel at home; a 24-hour front desk with complimentary coffee on offer in the lobby, housekeeping services on tap with same day dry cleaning, valet service and secure parking.
Guests can enjoy the convenience of a Chrome cast, allowing them to mirror their phone screens directly onto the room’s smart TV and guests can also access to PressReader, a digital newsstand that provides access to all major international newspapers and magazines.
