Palatial Arabic luxury – right on the sea, in the heart of the city – Four Seasons Hotel Doha is both a stylish business hotel with all modern conveniences and a beachfront resort offering luxurious relaxing experiences.

Green Globe congratulates the Four Seasons Hotel Doha on its very first certification.

The five-star hotel has developed a Sustainability Management Plan encompassing all areas of best practice. Energy and water usage are routinely monitored. To reduce energy consumption, all glass windows and doors are covered with window film and guest room appliances as well as office equipment are energy efficient. To conserve water, knee operated taps are utilized in kitchens and motion sensors fitted in public restrooms. Furthermore, water efficient hoses and pressure machines are used for outdoor cleaning.

In Green Meetings, a BMS moderates air-conditioning and HVAC temperatures and settings in accordance with the number of delegates attending each event. Sustainable Meeting Packages offer reusable table decorations and potted plants in place of floral arrangements along with paperless meeting options and sustainable food and beverage menus.

Four Seasons Hotel Doha has invested and participated in several CSR activities, and donation initiatives such as Earth Hour, blood donation drives, clean-up campaigns, food donations during Ramadan and the donation of retired linen to community organisations.

In line with its waste management policy, the property has implemented paperless check-in and check-out procedures via a mobile application. In addition, PET bottles have been replaced with glass refillable bottles in guest rooms thereby reducing the amount of plastic waste generated. Eco-friendly chemicals and dispensers are used throughout hotel operations to lessen environmental impacts.
