DOHA, Qatar, 15 July 2019 – New hotel in Doha’s vibrant West Bay area adds authentic Thai
fine dining and luxurious spa treatments to its extensive offerings.

Dusit Doha Hotel, a new luxury property under the management of Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has brought a further taste of Thailand to Qatar with the opening of Dusit’s signature Thai
restaurant, Benjarong, and luxury wellness concept, Devarana Spa.

Reflecting Dusit International’s unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality, Benjarong Doha Thai Restaurant blends modern and traditional design elements to provide a warm and
welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy authentic renditions of Thailand’s most famous dishes, as well as contemporary creations designed to elevate traditional Thai recipes. Sights, sounds and aromas combine to create a feast for all the senses.

Carefully crafted using the finest ingredients available, Benjarong’s signature dishes include Khong Wang Ruam Benjarong (Benjarong Mixed Appetizer), Mussaman Ka Kae by Poem of King Rama II (Whole Lamb Shank Mussaman Curry), Phad Thai Goong Benjarong (Stir-fried Chantaburi Rice Noodle with Prawns),and Khao Niew Moon Mamuang (Sticky Rice with
Mango).

Additional Thai-inspired experiences can be found on the 29 th floor, which is devoted entirely to Dusit’s luxury Devarana Spa. This exquisite haven of relaxation offers a wide range of massage, wellness and beauty treatments conducted by highly trained therapists within 17 luxuriously appointed treatment rooms (with separate male and female sections).

Sourced from age-old therapies, and updated with modern knowledge, the spa’s ‘East-meets-West’ Thai health and beauty practices are enhanced by high-quality spa products and herbal
preparations crafted from fresh, natural ingredients – many of which are available to purchase at the spa’s onsite shop, Devarana Gallery.

Treatment highlights include the ‘Devarana Signature Massage’, which combines five different massage techniques for maximum relaxation and rejuvenation; and the ‘Arabian Promise,’ a
luxurious aromatherapy treatment, unique to Dusit Doha Hotel, which combines the soothing scents of Frankincense and Rose to reduce stress and calm the mind.

a wealth of dining outlets to choose from, including the all-day dining restaurant, Taste, and – coming soon – a steak and seafood restaurant, a classic French café, and a relaxing rooftop lounge.

Ideal for weddings, corporate meetings, and memorable social gatherings, the hotel also offers a versatile ballroom which can accommodate up to 500 people. Spacious and bright with
abundant natural light, this atmospheric venue features its own private terrace and can be divided into two smaller venues, each with a separate entrance.
