Over five years in the making, The Grand Heritage Doha Hotel & Spa, is now a reality and has already become a style setter as the super luxury hotel property in Doha, Qatar.
This iconic property, created by J/Brice Design International, reinforces this USA-based firm’s position as one of the most influential and sought-after interior design groups in the Arabian Peninsula .
Commenting on the five-year watershed design and construction effort, Jeffrey Ornstein, J/Brice founder and said: “We are proud of the fact that throughout its long development period, the property emerged true to our original concept.
“The architectural concepts and interior design directions were executed precisely as envisioned from the early conceptual phase.
“When the Grand Heritage opened its doors, it was exactly as we had promised.”
This new Chateau-inspired, 137-room, five-star hotel’s arrival in the marketplace is spot on and in time to play a pivotal role as Doha completes its transformation – from commercial and shipping centre to a world-class destination for luxury travellers and a sophisticated social centre with its own unique brand.
The hotel overlooks Doha’s Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence; site of the 2006 Asian Olympic Games and 2022 World Cup.
In addition to ranking as a serious contender for the 2016 Summer Olympics, Doha now hosts Grand Prix auto racing, PGA and other major sporting events.
Ornstein has lived with this project since its inception.
He said: “The developer, Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani, wanted the property to be a defining landmark for world travellers and well-heeled sophisticates – an iconic property that stands out on the ever changing skyline, distinguishing Doha from neighbouring Dubai and Abu Dhabi.”
By all measure Sheikh Hamad has succeeded.
