Handcrafted dhow boats sail juxtaposed with skyscrapers in Qatar, and guests in our Qatar accommodations can encounter everything from Bedouin weaving to film festivals in this Persian Gulf nation that embraces ancient roots and modern life.
A visit to the capital, Doha, and a stroll along the Al Corniche Boulevard gives travelers a city view and access to the Museum of Islamic Art, Souq Waqif market, and the Qatar National Theatre.
Though sports-lovers can find basketball and soccer near their Qatar accommodations, they should not miss events like camel racing, falconry and horse racing, not to mention trying out sand skiing.
Our Qatar hotel guests can also walk the shores of Khor Al Adaid, the inland sea, visit the Dhal Al Misfir cave, dig for gypsum “desert roses” on the Al Shahaniya salt flats or hear the “singing” sand dunes, where grains move to create an audible murmur.
In addition to international cuisine, guests can savor a traditional meal of fresh fish, spiced rice, curry and potatoes. And Qatari coffee—strong, hot and sugarless—should top off at least one meal.
Guests in our Qatar hotels can find everything from conference centers to coastal retreats in this country that offers experiences that fit nearly any traveler.
