Fairmont Doha Spa & Pillar

An opulent space to recharge

From the discreet neutral-toned entrance to the wow-inducing facilities, Fairmont Doha Spa & Pillar has a laser focus on wellness, fitness and recovery. And it has engaged some of the globe’s well-being gurus to deliver a unique experience.

The 41,000-square-foot facility, which includes the largest hotel gym in the city, also packs a lot of innovative services into that space to cater to your body, mind and overall wellness.

The spa has nine treatment rooms, a hammam and offerings powered by global brands Sodashi and 111Skin that incorporate both natural ingredients and the latest skincare technology. The fitness component is led by Pillar Wellbeing and encompasses yoga, Pilates, metabolic analysis and nutritional reviews.

The facilities also boast a stunning outdoor temperature-controlled infinity pool as well as an indoor one for when the Doha summers get too much.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The immersive cycling studio and biggest climbing wall in Qatar take the fitness offerings beyond your run-of-the-mill hotel.
  • We also love the complimentary fitness classes for guests which include yoga, boxing and Pilates.
  • While many spas place an importance on privacy, we appreciated the space and attention given to the social aspects of fitness and wellness – like the relaxation rooms for some post-treatment decompressing with views across the water.
  • The partnership with Pillar Wellbeing means guests can engage coaches for one-on-one fitness sessions as well as services such as electronic muscle stimulation, metabolic analysis and conditioning coaching.
  • The 111Skin collaboration brings a new level of non-surgical facials and anti-ageing treatments to Doha for the first time, going above and beyond the usual cleaning and tone treatments.

Things to Know

  • As is the custom (and law) in Qatar, there are separate male and female facilities and services.
  • The ground-floor main pool area, while glamorous, can also be scorching (and humid) during Qatar’s summer, so head to the fifth-floor indoor pool for some respite.
  • The gym facilities are open 24/7, which is perfect to stretch the legs post late-night flight.

The Treatments

  • If you are battling jet lag or just need to relax, the signature 90-minute Sleep Recovery treatment using essential oils will send you off to cloud nine.
  • Of the facials, the standout is the Harley Street option. Devised by 111Skin, it bills itself as a “high-performance facial” to alleviate stressed, inflamed and irritated skin.
  • The Body Balance Salt Glow is also good for the jet-lagged traveler. Stimulating the body’s circulation, this exfoliating treatment is particularly recommended following periods of travel or post-workout.
  • The hammam, where treatments by MarocMaroc occur, is one of the most luxurious in the city. The 90-minute Nourishing Hammam will scrub any worries away.
  • If you’re looking to relax and rebalance, the 111Skin Serenity Massage uses light pressure, jasmine aromatherapy oils and rose quartz to comfort and soothe you.

The Facilities

  • The Doha spa offers the full gamut of hydrotherapy facilities, including saunas, steam rooms and a bracing vitality shower.
  • The gym is fully equipped with the latest Technogym equipment. Its floor-to-ceiling windows, with vistas of the water, provide all the inspiration you need to power through the workout.
  • There is a hairdresser and a barber on site to have you looking your best before a big night out or your flight home.
  • The outdoor pool has views for days as well as some plush loungers perfect for whiling away the afternoon.
