Arab Engineering, Leo International, Sketch Interiors and Rockwell Group collaborate on Doha Kempinski

Kempinski announced that its flagship resort, Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl - Doha, is set to soft-open on Dec. 1. Marsa Malaz Kempinski will be the group’s second hotel in Qatar and seventh in the Gulf, with two more hotels in the Middle East scheduled to open in the coming year.

The project architect firm is Arab Engineering Bureau. The main interior design was done by Leo International Design Group, which also designed the Emirates Palace. Sketch Interiors designed Al Sufra and El Faro restaurants. Meanwhile, Rockwell Group designed Illusion, the resort’s 10,764-square-foot rooftop club lounge.

The city-resort is located on its own secluded island at The Pearl-Qatar and is the first ultra-luxury hotel in these parts of Doha. When it opens, the property will have 281 rooms and suites, with meeting-conference facilities including a 11,538-square-foot Grand Ballroom. Marsa Malaz Kempinski will also have an exclusive beach located in a private bay, along with outdoor swimming pools, water sports facilities, a 32,291.7-square-foot Spa by Clarins, a tennis court and yacht jetties.
