Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha

A family-friendly oasis on the gulf

Just a 20-minute drive from the thriving city center, Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha boasts views of the sparkling gulf waters and jaw-dropping interiors. Designer Pierre-Yves Rochon drew inspiration from the desert and seas surrounding the Qatar peninsula to create the striking white-marble and blue-hued lobby that greets you.

The Waldorf Astoria Lusail, which opened for the 2022 World Cup, perfectly balances luxury and family friendliness with Lusail’s only private beach, a kid’s club, a waterpark and dedicated swimming facilities for families. The resort houses seven cafés, bars and restaurants, including the iconic SUSHISAMBA.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • All 429 rooms and suites feature impressive views of the gulf, Lusail City or iconic Lusail Boulevard and Lusail Stadium.
  • The hotel boasts three pools (two for adults, one exclusively for families) and offers a surf pool and the Wadi Lusail water park for thrill seekers.
  • No mere restaurant, SUSHISAMBA has also opened a beach club with an in-house DJ and a private pool outfitted with stylish cocoon-like cabanas, making it a hot spot during Doha’s cooler months.
  • Pristine white linens and walls accented by pops of beachy blues adorn the rooms and suites. All units come with balconies and ample space, ranging from the 646-square-foot Deluxe King to the massive 11,355-square-foot Presidential Suite.

The Food
