You’ll really feel like you’ve arrived in Qatar when you pull up to the Sharq Village & Spa. A hotel that’s stayed true to its roots in its architecture and level of service; this is a magical place that manages to bring the magic of the past to the fore, whilst staying ahead in the world of modern-day luxury.
Stay at the Sharq Village and Spa and you’ll literally be able to fly and flop. Just 12 minutes (yep, 12) from Doha’s international airport, this property sits on 350 meters of serene, private coastline. Once you’ve tired of beach living (how could you?) you’re only 15 minutes to the city centre and 20 from Doha’s most famed shopping districts. What more could you want?
Hole up in a sea-view room and you’ll have access to your own private terrace, enjoy views of the Arabian Sea, rest in a four-poster bed and bask in Qatari-style beauty. You’ll genuinely feel like Qatari royalty as you take tea in your Arabic courtyard, nestled in your plush bathrobe. Speaking of royalty, we couldn’t go without mentioning the Royal Villa on offer here. Spanning two levels, with room for 10 guests and boasting its own indoor pool; this villa is the ultimate indulgence. But hey, sometimes that’s just what we all deserve, right?
WHY WE LIKE IT
We love how Sharq Village & Spa hasn’t strayed from the heritage and style of Qatar, instead embracing the magic and beauty of the region. When we travel, we look to truly immerse ourselves in local culture, and when you’ve got a property as luxurious and authentic as this – it’s kind of a no brainer when it comes to deciding where to stay. Oh, and the on-site Six Senses Spa is a bit of alright too…
