The Torch – member of Leading Hotels of the World, is the flagship project situated at the heart of Doha’s Sports City, Aspire Zone. The 5-star luxury hotel opened its doors to visitors in November 2011.
Situated at 300m high and with 360° panoramic views across the city, the hotel is the result of comprehensive architectural, engineering and technical design, formerly shaped to represent a colossal torch which for the duration of the 15th Asian Games in 2006 held its symbolic flame.
The hotel concept and interior design is captivating for the high end traveler: the rooms with their top feature – the new iPad solution, the revolving restaurant with its panoramic views and the cantilevered pool, the highest in Doha are some of the main attractions. The hotel’s iconic silhouette with its kinetic light display at night is standing high on Doha’s skyline.
