World’s largest Espa spa opens in Doha
The world’s largest Espa spa has opened at the new Mondrian Doha hotel in Qatar.
The spa, which is the first for Espa in Qatar, is 1,950sq m and comprises a male and a female spa area and a Turkish hammam, among other features.
Espa at Mondrian Doha, which opened on October 2, has been designed by celebrated Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, with the female spa area created to resemble “a secret garden”.
Facilities in the women’s spa include five treatment rooms, a “multi-level heat experience garden” with amenities including a Swarovski crystal rain shower, and a Finish sauna.
The female spa section also comprises two manicure and two pedicure stations –where Margaret Dabbs nail treatments are carried out – and a hair studio.
Treatments on the spa menu include options specifically developed for expectant or breastfeeding mothers. The male spa, the design of which draws inspiration from the local bazaars, includes the Heat Experience Souk.
Central to the male spa, this area includes a sauna, steam room, ice fountain, body jet showers and heated day beds.
The hammam at Espa Doha offers four different treatments, including the two-hour Ultimate Hammam Journey, designed to cleanse, smooth, hydrate and de-stress.
Among the other hammam options is the one-hour Glow Hammam Journey, offering deep cleansing. The spa also comprises a spa café, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and healthy juices.
The Mondrian Doha is the first hotel in the Middle East for the SBE hotel group, which the Mondrian brand is part of.
