More about Qatar

MORE ABOUT QATAR

Qatar is undergoing a process of rapid growth. This much is undeniable. Luxury hotels, spas, and world-class restaurants open every day in Doha, its capital city. It has also, notably, become heavily invested in cultural activities, from being the first Middle Eastern country to host the FIFA World Cup (in 2022), to seeing the rise of a thriving Gulf arts scene. But it also has a low-key and traditional side, making it an unusual but rewarding getaway. Welcome to Qatar.

TOUR QATAR'S AWE-INSPIRING ART AND ARCHITECTURE

While it is best known for its wellness spas, glitzy restaurants, and swanky architecture, Qatar has one thing which its neighbours do not - a desert that meets the sea. Private tours of this opening country would do no worse than to take in its thriving arts scene, including the offering at the mesmerising Museum of Islamic Art in Doha - having hosted the huge furry sculptures of Takashi Murakami to intricately displayed collections of Safavid and Mughal-era calligraphic compositions. The view from the entrance way out over the sea is a piece of art in itself.

Take a breath. The Marsa Malaz is one of the most lavish hotels we’ve ever seen. Nodding to European architecture in its design, the grand hotel is situated on its own island only a stone’s throw from Porto Arabia - and all of the excellent dining and entertainment that can be found there. Arabian hospitality meets European luxury, making it one of the most refined hotels in the world.
