Where Can You Stay?

 Are you looking through all the hotels in Doha wondering which of them to check in to? Resorts such as Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels By Tivoli and many others offer guests unparalleled comforts as well as central stays. So, pick your hotel based on your budget, itinerary and your preference of location.

What is a Dhow Cruise?

 It is a traditional wooden boat which was steered by sailors, which is unique to Doha. Apart from its wooden frame, what set it apart was the two triangular sails which had pointed ends for the bow and the stern. However modern designs have one large sail which has been proven to be more powerful and efficient.

Dinner on the Dhow

Set off at dusk and enjoy watching the sun dip into the still waters of the Arabian Gulf. Dinner cruises are a wonderful way to take in the views of the city skyline from a unique perspective as well. Admire the glittering skyline from the waters while you make some unforgettable memories on your holiday in Doha.

Consider heading there for a relaxing stroll or better yet to catch a sunset. The entrance is free, and the Corniche can be reached easily from hotels such as Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli with ease.

The Gate Mall

Offering a luxurious shopping experience, the Gate Mall is definitely a great place to visit. The mall is home to numerous designer brands, high-end restaurants, cute cafes and many a spa in Doha, Qatar.

Barzan Towers

The Barzan Towers is located in Muhammed, Qatar, and is considered to be a must-visit tourist attraction in Doha. It’s a great place to take in stunning views of the city. No entry fee is required.

Qatar Boat & Fishing Trips

An ideal way to explore Qatar and experience the laidback charm of this historic state is by embarking on boat & fishing trips, set amidst idyllic landscapes. If you are in search of a well placed Doha hotel from which to set off on your excursions then consider Millennium Hotel Doha. This hotel in Doha is ideally located only around 16 kms from the Doha Sailing Club as well.

There are several options when it comes to boat and fishing tours in Qatar. One way well worth considering is to take dhow charters which let you hop aboard traditional style vessels. Ranging from half day trips to full day tours, these charters can include visits to such destinations as Safliya Island along with activities such as fishing and water sports. Head to Katara Beach if you are interested in setting off on fishing trips, while those looking to charter yachts can do so from the Regatta Sailing Academy.
