New hotel trends across the Qatar Airways network.


Good Hotel, London

Formerly a floating prison, Amsterdam’s Good Hotel has made its way to its new home in London’s Royal Victoria Docks for the next five years. At the heart of the hotel is a refreshingly altruistic business model; it reinvests every penny of its profits into training unemployed locals and supporting partner NGOs. Inside, the feel is industrial luxe with understated design touches. The rooftop terrace is perfect for London sunsets.


W Bali Sound Suite, W Retreat and Spa, Seminyak

While holidays are for relaxing, the W Bali offers creatives the chance to stay in top-end suites with an integrated private music studio and writer’s room for professional recording artists, studio musicians, and producers. Guests also have access to an on-site ‘music curator’, high-speed 90Mbps WiFi, unlimited access to the fitness centre and Detox Chamber spa, a sound engineer, and DJ booth set-up.


Kameha Grand Hotel’s Space Suite, Zurich

Designed by German artist and cosmonaut-in-training Michael Najjar, the cutting-edge Space Suite aims to immerse guests in the atmosphere of a space station. Situated on the fifth floor of the hotel, the luxurious black and white room features a ‘zero gravity bed’ that is made to look as if it is floating, and a steam bath with views of earth and space. An automated female voice in eight variations will welcome you on arrival (inspired by John Carpenter’s Dark Star film), while spotlights are inspired by rocket engines, and ‘space gloves’ are there to place key cards or phones on. The Space Suite is one of 11 themed suites, which includes the Ghostwriter Suite, Watchmaker Suite, and Oriental Suite by designer Marcel Wanders.
