World’s largest ESPA opens at Mondrian Doha, Qatar

Mondrian Doha, sbe’s first hotel in the Middle East, opens its doors this month with the world’s largest ESPA spa – the first ESPA in Qatar. The striking ESPA at Mondrian Doha is 1,950m² and features separate spas for men and women, a heat experience garden and a traditional Turkish Hammam. A menu of six signature treatments will be available at the spa, uniting the very best of time-honoured Middle Eastern spa therapies with modern, western practices.

ESPA at Mondrian Doha, designed by internationally acclaimed Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders, combines striking design elements with an unparalleled spa experience from ESPA, uniting beauty, excitement and exquisite luxury to engage all the senses. The spa will offer two very different spa experiences, where guests will enter the spa through a pure white reception area.

The female spa creates a magical illusion of a secret garden. Women can enjoy specially designed treatments for expectant or nursing mothers as well as two manicure stations and two pedicure thrones with services from Margaret Dabbs. There is also a luxury hair studio. The female spa features open, white spaces and five relaxing treatment rooms, as well as a multi-level heat experience garden filled with design features such as Swarovski crystal rain showers and an intricately-carved wooden Finnish sauna.

Contrastingly, the male spa oozes masculinity in a traditional sense, with a design that has been inspired by the strong and vibrant urban souks of the region. The Heat Experience Souk sits at the heart of the male spa and is based on Doha’s local bazaars, with facilities centred around the ‘fire & water’ fountain which guests can admire whilst relaxing on the muscle-warming heated daybeds. The heat experience within the male spa enables guests to encounter contrasting sensations through the wet and dry steam rooms, ice fountain and body jet showers.

ESPA at Mondrian, Doha boasts the Spa Café, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea, with a wide selection of freshly squeezed juices as the perfect way to relax, either before or after the Spa experience.

The Hammam at ESPA offers four signature experiences. Treatments include the Ultimate Hammam Journey, a 120 min Hammam experience to cleanse, smooth, hydrate and nourish the skin, clear and awaken the mind, and banish muscular stress and tension. Or guest can enjoy the Glow Hammam Journey, 60 mins of a deep cleansing,
