The Torch Doha opens its doors to public

The Torch, Qatar's iconic landmark, has announced its entrance on the luxury hotels market as the flagship project situated at the heart of Doha's Sport City.
At 300m high and with 360° panoramic views across the whole of Doha, the hotel is a haven for the discerning traveler, be they sports enthusiasts, business leaders, or health and wellness seekers.
Located in the middle of Aspire Zone, Doha's Sports City, the Torch is the premier venue for those who are searching for state-of-the-art sporting, leisure and rehabilitation facilities.
