The Launch of Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli A New Escape From the City

Nestled amongst the newly established Souqon the shores of the Arabian Gulf, Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli will launch on 15 August in Al Wakra, the up-and-coming district just a 20-minute drive south of Doha.

Having established itself as a prominent coastal settlement for pearl divers, sailors and fishermen, Al Wakra has flourished as a trading post since the 17th century, but growth slowed down when supplies ran out.

Recent investment has resulted in efforts to preserve and revive heritage sites, including the development of Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli.

Blending artful Qatari tradition and contemporary leisure, the new hotel comprises of two buildings with a total of 101 guest rooms.

Both buildings are former heritage houses where original character has been splendidly preserved with the architecture mirroring a Qatari house or fortress.

In keeping with the local heritage, each of the guest rooms and suites features classic thatched roofs, reflecting traditional basket weaving elements. The guest rooms have been thoughtfully designed with colourful motifs reflecting the jubilant blues of the sea and the sandy tones of the desert, inspired by Al Wakra’s history as a pearl diving and fishing village. Open walkways and maze-like paths lead to courtyards where multiple guest rooms can be blocked off to create private areas for groups. Offering ultimate privacy, large parties will be able to stay together in guest rooms grouped around shaded majlis, perfect for celebrations or family gatherings.

Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli has created dining delights in five restaurants and lounges. Jarnen offers Mediterranean all-day dining with fresh seafood sourced daily from the local Al Wakra market and BBQ grilled to order at live cooking stations. Markhan, anArabic fusion lounge, offers the ideal place to enjoy the sunset from the terrace overlooking the gulf. Emshoot invites guests to discover the culinary delights of Asia’s diverse flavours with dishes ranging from sushi to tandoori kebabs. For those looking for something lighter, guests can dine upstairs and embrace the sights and sounds of the nearby Souq from Mahaadeg’s terrace, which serves a selectionof international dishes. Whether needing to grab breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack, the Lobby Lounge tempts palates with a range of quick bites.

In addition, the majlis which are situated across the property offer an authentic Bedouin-style evening or live BBQ. The colourful spaces are perfect for groups to share quality time whilst enjoying a casual and convivial atmosphere. To complement the water front location, Tivoli Spa will provide an absolute state of relaxation and well-being with separate treatment rooms for men and women as well as a hydro pool, steam room,Vichy Shower and jacuzzi.

Only a fifteen-minute drive to Hamad International Airport, the hotel is in an easily accessible location for business meetings,with both a multipurpose boardroom equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment and a business centre available in each building.

The hotel also has direct access to the adjacent Al Wakra public beach and promenade, suitable for exercising.

Souq Al Wakra is quickly becoming a local meeting point with vendors and merchants selling their native goods from traditional garments to dates and spices, as well as souvenirs.

The Souq comes to life at night with locals and tourists who dine and drink tea along the promenade.

The regeneration of the area also includes historical landmarks such as Al Wakra Fort, a short walk from the property, which will soon reopen after refurbishment.
