Doha’s changing faster than we change our clothes, and these days we’ve got our sights set on the city of Lusail.

Lusail is rapidly becoming the place to be, with its high rise residential and commercial buildings, beautiful streets, and undeniable views of the Persian Gulf. It’s got everything from beauty outlets, eateries, and much more. And Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail, a brand of InterContinental Hotels Group and owned by Al Sraiya Hotels & Hospitality, has recently created a boom in the area as it closes on its second year of operations.

As the first hotel in Lusail, housing 119 fully furnished apartments for short and long stays, Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail has been an integral part of the constantly progressing business district of Lusail City. The biggest success of the hotel in 2020 is the expansion of the commercial area located on the ground floor of the establishment. A total of three commercial outlets have recently opened their doors in the area namely: Beauty Formula Lounge, North Café, and Tawle Lebanese Eatery. Beauty Formula Lounge opened in late 2019 offering luxury and state-of-the-art beauty services.

They are the first in Qatar to specialize in microblading, micro pigmentation, brows, and lash lift. North Café started serving specialty coffees for the Qatari taste with a Japanese touch at Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail in mid2020. Jabor Almannai, owner of North Café, expresses that the inspiration for the brand comes from the art of coffee making and coffee shop atmospheres he experienced in his many travels to Japan.

The best-sellers are the North Signature Latte, Filtered Coffee, and their Matcha that they source directly from Japan and is guaranteed to be organic and all-natural Tawle Lebanese Eatery is the latest addition to the commercial destination, setting the table for your culinary gateway to Lebanon. “Tawle”, which means ‘table’ in Arabic, is the main theme of the restaurant; showcasing a long table surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs designed to give off the feel of a cosy dining experience at home. The commercial area of Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail has already gathered crowds and visitors daily.

“We have big plans for the commercial area of our hotel so expect to see more developments in the near future. We aim to be the ultimate destination in Lusail and we are currently working on many things, particularly we are focused on a special and unique project that we’re excited to introduce to Qatar very soon,” says Soha Zahar, General Manager of Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail. It is now easier than ever to visit Staybridge Suites Doha Lusail as the Legtaifiya Red Line Metro Station opened this year which currently allows visitors to use the complementary pilot ridesharing feeder service, Metro Express, that can travel directly to the hotel.

The Marina Tram Station is also expected to open soon which is just a crossing road distance from the establishment and is connected to the Red Line Metro Rail. ✤
