In preparation for the hotel’s upcoming opening, The St. Regis Doha has welcomed over 200 hospitality professionals to its growing family in the past two months.
As workers complete the building and fit-out works on the 336-room hotel, employees are training on-site. Training is a key part of The St. Regis Doha experience, to enable staff to anticipate guests’ needs and build the reputation of the hotel as the “finest address in Doha”.
"We have brought a significant number of staff to the hotel early, in order to provide a comprehensive training programme before we open our doors to guests,” said Tareq Derbas, General Manager of The St. Regis Doha.
Our plan is to make our opening season one of the highlights of the social calendar in Doha, and we are confident that we have assembled the right team to deliver this unique experience for people in Qatar and for luxury enthusiasts from around the world.
In the last week of 2011, members of The St. Regis Doha family assembled for a special event at the hotel entitled “Let the Legacy Begin”.
The team is planning a full calendar of events and culinary experiences to mark the opening of the hotel, set to take place in the first half of the year.
