Shangri-La Hotel, Doha

This hotel has a sublime location and a touch of contemporary style.

Elegant and chic, there’s no denying that this beautiful hotel is distinctly Middle Eastern. However, where hotels in other regions of the Middle East can be grand, opulent and a little over the top, the Shangri-La Hotel, Doha is much more subtle and refined. In the heart of this cosmopolitan city, the hotel has easy access to the Arab Museum of Modern Art, the famous Souk Waqif – where you can admire the vivid colours and breathe in the fragrant spices of the market – and the Gold Souk, named for its rows of glittering jewellery.

After a morning out exploring the delights of Doha, lounge away the afternoon in a private cabana by the pool, making your way to the swim-up bar for a refreshing drink or two. Kids will love the shaded children’s pool, while those in search of a little relaxation can indulge with a treatment at CHI, The Spa.

At the souk-inspired Sridan buffet there are a variety of different flavours on offer. With ten food and beverage stations serving authentic Middle Eastern dishes alongside international favourites, you can savour over twelve different cuisines here. For something a little more sophisticated, head to Fuego where you can enjoy sensational South American fare in the heart of Doha. Lively, fun and entertaining, here you can indulge in Argentinian prime steak and a selection of the distant continent’s finest wines. Santorini showcases the flavours of the Greek islands with tempting Mediterranean seafood, and at the top of the hotel, you’ll find the cool Shanghai Club. This is the new ‘place to be seen’ in Doha and the cuisine served is Cantonese-fusion. As the night heads towards morning, local DJs take to the stage.

The cosy rooms are renowned for their spacious feel, comfortable furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows through which you can enjoy superb views of the West Bay district. When upgrading from a Deluxe Room to a Premier Room you’ll have almost one-and-a-half times the floor space, while if you choose a Horizon Club Room you will have access to the Horizon Club Lounge. The suites here are the ultimate indulgence and include the one-bedroom Executive and Deluxe Suites, each with a separate living area and spectacular Gulf views.
