Festive celebrations at Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha

Doha, 1 December 2013: Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha offers its guests an array of festive events to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve in sophisticated surroundings with stunning views. Guests can treat themselves and loved ones to sweet surprises at Gourmet House, greet Santa at the Sky Villa, prepare dinner with our Executive Chef and get ready for the exciting New Year at Aroma and The Lounge.

Festive season celebrations will begin with a Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the 5th of December. Guests are invited to watch Santa light up the lobby, while savouring cookies and sipping hot chocolate. Gourmet House will turn into a big gingerbread house, where a superb selection of traditional stollen, gingerbread goodies and cookies will be available.

In December, Santa will stop at the Sky Villa every weekend before Christmas for afternoon tea. Children are invited to take a picture with Santa and decorate cookies with pastry chefs, while parents relax and enjoy the buffet and the best view in Doha from the top floor of the tower.

On Christmas Eve, a gourmet four-course dinner menu inspired by Kempinski’s European heritage will delight guests, while they relish in festive rhythms and elegant decorations. On Christmas Day, a scrumptious buffet and a mini-corner for the younger guests will create memorable moments for families. Santa will also pay a visit to take any last minute requests from the children.

Mouth-watering take-away turkeys from Gourmet House come perfectly prepared with signature stuffing and all the trimmings. Please order 48 hours from the desired delivery time to ensure timely delivery.

Ringing in the New Year could not be more glamorous at Kempinski. A red carpet awaits guests at the entrance, setting the mood for a memorable countdown.

We have the pleasure and honour to share with you that Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha has been recognised as the top hotel in Qatar by receiving the Hotel Quality Standards Award from Qatar Tourism Authority. His Excellency QTA Chairman Issa Bin Mohamed al-Muhannadi presented the award to the General Manager, Wissam Suleiman during a ceremony held last week in Doha.
The Hotel Quality Rating Programme is a new initiative from QTA and was conducted in collaboration with an independent international agency. Six top-ranked hotels in Qatar have been recognised for excellence in service and product quality, Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha being the hotel receiving the highest score in the country.
The program's main objective is to set benchmarks in hospitality facilities in the country by raising the levels of service and establishing Qatar as a leading destination. The independent company employed mystery guests who tested the hotels during their two or three nights stays. The rating system took into consideration several factors including booking process, on-site service, food and beverages, quality and cleanliness of the rooms and public areas, facilities, privacy and safety among others. The report also assessed the ability of staff to handle and resolve "fabricated" problems.
