Park Hyatt Doha is a sophisticated retreat located in the Msheireb Downtown Doha development, the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project. A soaring impression on the skyline, the 21-story, 189-room hotel offers an exceptional level of service in a sustainable, contemporary urban setting. CRÈME’s design within the Park Hyatt Doha includes the interior design of the hotel’s three dining spaces: Anis, a ground-level bistro; Opus, an all-day dining room on the third floor; and Sora, a fine dining experience and Japanese restaurant on the 21st floor.
Anis, a visionary dining concept, offers elevated, healthy dishes made from locally sourced ingredients, and a range of unique organic beverage choices. Boasting an off-street entrance that makes it inviting to locals and passers-by as well as in-house guests. Anis restaurant is fresh and elegant, and includes outdoor dining options.
Opus, a stately restaurant with a residential feeling features a theatrical open kitchen concept. With a menu curated by celebrity Qatari chef Shams Al Qassabi, and Michelin-starred chef Jean-François Rouquette, Opus offers the freshest in local ingredients and locally inspired dishes. Opus’ regal interior is defined by intricate, wood screens that penetrate the ceiling plane to create unique environments within the restaurant while simultaneously adding drama and privacy. Select artworks by artists from the Association for Modern and Contemporary Art of the Arab World, were chosen for their vibrancy in pattern and color and are given added definition through vertical wall niches.
Sora, the 21st floor Japanese restaurant and lounge, is a jewel box in the sky. Elevating dining experiences with elegance and exuberance in a contemporary fashion, Sora towers 21 stories above the street. The restaurant’s exterior skin and stone clad walls align with its magnificent double height interior. Emphasizing the indoor / outdoor connection, the interior walls are punctuated with light niches that are reminiscent of its dramatic exterior screen. The walls and ceilings work together creating a box within a box and framing the visual focus at every turn. Sculptural elements in tastefully selected jewel tones are present throughout the restaurant, including a fiberglass wall with LED glass accents, a crystal box screen display, and a geode inspired ceiling element.
