The much-delayed Mondrian Hotel is set to open in Qatar this year.

Inspired by falcons, another new luxury hotel is expected to open to the public within the coming months.

After four years of delay, the Mondrian Doha is expecting a soft launch during Q2 2017, its owners announced.

Along with “an exclusive and immense spa”, the hotel will have 270 rooms and suites, eight bars and restaurants with local and international cuisine.

Located in West Bay lagoon, near Lagoona Mall, plans for the hotel were originally revealed in 2011, with an opening set for 2013.

Part of the SBE hotel group, the project has seen numerous delays, with the latest overshooting of its most recent launch date due in the fall of 2015.

No explanation has been given for the postponements.

Included in its restaurant line up will be CUT by Wolfgang Puck, a fine dining steak house, and Japanese fusion restaurant Morimoto Doha, with a branch of Magnolia Bakery in its lobby.

The hotel owners said that the establishment aims to achieve the same “up-all-night intensity, the energy and Sunset Strip vibe” of the original Mondrian hotel in Hollywood.

Following a soft launch before the summer, the Mondrian will hold an official opening in September, the Qatar Tribune reports.
