As a new addition to the collection of hotels in Souq Waqif, Al Najada offers new heights of Arabian hospitality to hotel and apartment guests. Centrally located on a heritage site between Hamad Al Kabir street and the hustle and bustle of Souq Waqif and the Gold Souq, the new hotel is inspired by Qatari homes and hospitality, showcasing a mix of Arabic flair and European elegance.
The hotel’s design gracefully blends traditional architecture and façades with modern Arabic design and a contemporary colour palate. This is complemented by crafted tile work in vibrant yellows and blues, creating a sophisticated yet lively ambience throughout the property. The open and expansive guest rooms and suites have been designed to feel elegant yet relaxed with plush interiors and classic hues. Private balconies open over the piazza with views of the city, with guests staying on the upper floors of the hotel able to enjoy vistas of the West Bay skyline.
With 151 guest rooms and suites, Al Najada Hotel by Tivoli places an emphasis on privacy with a variety of accommodation including the luxurious Al Najada Suite, split-level Duplex Suites and exclusive rooms and suites that are perfect for large families. In addition, neighbouring Al Najada Hotel Apartments by Oaks, part of Souq Al Najada, offers a home away from home for long-stay business travellers and families.
The restaurants at Al Najada Hotel by Tivoli are more than places to simply eat and drink, they are places to discover new flavours and revisit old favourites. Al Baraha is a light, bright restaurant lit by the Qatari sunshine streaming through the windows which overlook the spacious outdoor terrace and across the piazza to Souq Al Najada. With its high ceiling and vibrantly colourful furniture, Al Baraha, which means comfortable and cosy, is the perfect place for guests to start their culinary journey. Al Baraha Restaurant offers a sumptuous daily breakfast buffet, while for dinner guests choose from an array of international and Arabic specialities including Middle Eastern mezzah, freshly prepared salads and local desserts.

Dishes are expertly prepared and served, balancing colours, aromas, textures and flavours. Missan is made for those searching for a one-of-a-kind dining experience in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
For those who want to entertain friends and family, Canela Café is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a mid-morning coffee, small bites and an array of sweet treats. In Canela, meaning cinnamon in Portuguese and giving a nod to Tivoli’s heritage and roots, guests can also enjoy a calm ambience with lots of space to sit both inside on the laid-back furniture or outside on the terrace overlooking the piazza and Souq Al Najada.
Alongside the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool, the Pool Bar offers seasonal menus with a wide selection of tropical mocktails, refreshing chilled juices and light snacks. Nestled on the first floor of the hotel, it is the ideal place to relax, unwind and bask in the sunshine while enjoying a refreshing drink – truly a modern oasis in the middle of the bustling city. For guests feeling a little more energetic, a 24-hour fitness centre is also available.
