The First-Ever Louis Vuitton Luxury Lounge Opens at The Hamad International Airport, Qatar

Qatar’s Hamad International Airport is already considered one of the top luxurious airports in the world with a five-star rating from Skytrax. With its latest addition, the first-ever Louis Vuitton luxury lounge, it is sure to rank even higher on the list.

The LV Luxury Lifestyle

Louis Vuitton has definitely come a long way from its not-so-humble beginnings making trunks for the ultra-wealthy. In addition to its fashion apparel and gadgets, the French brand recently added a café and chocolate shop to its offerings and announced that it is building its first-ever hotel and its largest-ever store at its headquarters in Paris.

This latest project, the first-ever Louis Vuitton luxury lounge, is expanding the brand’s appellation of ‘all-round luxury lifestyle brand’ to a whole new level.

Per media reports, the seemingly LV monogram-shaped lounge sits above an already-existing LV store at the airport and occupies the same space with other luxury stores including Bvlgari, Omega and Fendi, as well as luxury-branded dining establishments like the Emporio Armani Caffee and Harrod’s Tearoom.

Inside, premium passengers can expect to see a tastefully-designed space with designer furnishings from renowned names like the India Mahdavi low tables and the Costela armchairs by Martin Eisler. And, when they are feeling peckish, an LV-branded restaurant, serving Qatari-influenced dishes via a menu created by the three-star Michelin Chef Yannick Alleno,  is onsite to satisfy their cravings.

So, the next time you’re passing through the Hamad International Airport, be sure to drop by the Louis Vuitton luxury lounge and enjoy a tastefully-prepared meal that may include any of Qatar’s well-known spices including cinnamon, cardamom, saffron, nuts, limes, cumin, cloves, and dried apricots. But, just in case you’re not hungry, you can shop in the LV store below or explore all the other luxury stores that call the HIA home.
