Qatar

For a luxury holiday that is really like no other, a trip to Qatar is a must. Here, you can watch history in the making as this once desolate region seems to spring to life around you with constant updates, expansions and exciting new endeavours. A burgeoning scene of culture, cuisine and creative arts is blossoming in the region’s cities and rural towns, and everything from camel riding to robot building is taking place, all at once.
 
If you want to witness one of the last big cities in the making, then you’d better head straight for Qatar’s capital, Doha. Its immense and impressive skyline is awash with beautiful, mind-bogglingly high skyscrapers, hotels and mosques that ooze all the confidence and style of a wealthy capital.
 
Couples, why not take a romantic evening gander through the famously reinvented Souk Waqif? Its colourful displays of Middle Eastern treasures, softly glimmering lights and the enticing smell of its Arabic delicacies are sure to bring a noticeable lightness to your hearts and your wallets. Better yet, take a sunset stroll on the stunning sands of the Four Season’s Beach – an ideal place to ramp up the romance.
 
Art enthusiasts will likewise find their experience an exceptional one with a visit to the Museum of Islamic Arts or Gallery One, two excellent examples that showcase the contrasting yet harmonious conjoining of contemporary urban life with ancient traditions.
 
The sun worshippers out there aren’t forgotten either. When deciding on Qatar, you really get the best of both worlds. A peaceful, beach holiday and culturally intriguing trip that will make dinner conversation for months – all right on your doorstep. There are plenty of white sandy stretches to get your tanning on, whether you choose to remain on one of the private hotel beaches that come complimentary with your stay or venture onto one of the livelier public spaces.
 
Oh, did we forget to mention the state-of-the-art, world-famous hotels that are on offer here? With such big names as the Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, W Hotel, St. Regis and the Grand Hyatt throwing open their very luxurious doors to discerning travellers, you will be spoilt for choice with accommodation. And that’s not even to mention the host of exclusive activities that these hotels offer such as five star spas, first-rate sports facilities and lots more.
 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
Although Qatar’s dress code isn’t as strict as many Middle Eastern areas, visitors are still advised to cover their knees and shoulders and not to wear anything too tight or revealing – giving you the perfect opportunity to update your wardrobe and take on the beautiful fashion of the region!

Qatar In A Nutshell

Life’s a Beach
 

  • Perfectly nestled in the north-eastern coastline of Qatar is the stunningly wild Al Maroona beach. With soft, tawny sands and warm waters that teem with rock pools full of sea-life for children and adults alike to explore, this is an ideal beach for a family outing. The perfect city escape, this undeveloped stretch of paradise is an essential training ground for swimmers in the making as the water is shallow enough to allow even the smallest of waterbabies to doggy-paddle in style.
     
  • Crystal clear waters coupled with sand as soft and white as talcum powder, this picturesque location is the gem of the Qatari coast. Scatterings of brightly coloured shells coupled with the blazing blue sky will make visitors feel like they’ve stepped into a postcard. If you’re up for laying under the stars, many lucky campers have reported dolphin sightings at this location.
     

Family Fun Guaranteed
 

  • If your kids are longing for a day of thrills and spills, then there is nowhere better to go than the Gondolania Indoor Theme Park. Conveniently placed inside the Villagio Mall for sneaky midday shopping trips, this adventure house is an indoor world of fun, fun, fun. Everything your children can think of is on offer here from exciting rides and laser tag to ice skating and trampolines. You are all sure to have a brilliant time (even if some of the rides are a little too small for the adults).
     
  • Finding activities that a family can do together is often difficult as there isn’t always something to suit everyone but here in Qatar, they’ve thought of this and come up with the wonderful Café Ceramique. At this café, you can not only enjoy excellent hot drinks and light bites but also indulge in some ceramic painting as you and your children decorate bowls, cups and other utensils, all of which you can take home with you after. The perfect holiday souvenir from a family trip that will forever hold a cherished place in your memory bank.
     

Tastes to Try
 

  • If you really enjoy your vino collapso, then you are going to love The Cellar. Having only opened in 2010 this fantastic little place has already gained a huge reputation and is now one of the most recommended restaurants to go to in Qatar. Serving the finest selection of stunningly plated Mediterranean tapas-style dishes, everything about this eatery is elegantly understated and chic. But, it’s not the décor you’ll go for. It is, of course, the extensive and carefully selected wine list, full to bursting with exceptional pairings to your fabulous dishes.
     
  • To add a few Michelin stars to your holiday experience, then you must make at least one trip to Quisine by Guy Savoy (we know when you’ve been once you’ll keep coming back for more). Romantic and cosy yet distinctly minimalist in its décor this stunning space makes sure that your food is the centre of attention. With a range of cuisines available presented in an innovative style, this isn’t just food you’re eating – it’s art.
