Name: Radisson Blu Hotel Doha
The multi-cultural, cosmopolitan city of Doha shines like a jewel on the east coast of Qatar. Rumoured to be the Middle East’s next tourism hotspot now is the time to go before the masses descend. Stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel Doha for a hotel as dynamic as it’s location; sleek rooms, fab amenities and excellent cuisine await.
The hotel is located in the city centre, just 5km from the Museum of Islamic Art and 15km from Hamad International Airport. Flights from London are direct (both British Airways and Qatar Airways fly the route) and take 6 hours and 45 minutes; there’s a complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel just to make your life that little bit easier and the transfer only take 30 minutes.
There is much to entertain in Doha; the beautiful Corniche waterfront promenade with its dazzling harbour views, there are several sandy beaches with crystal clear blue water, marvel at the world-class Museum of Islamic Art and shop at both the glittering modern shopping malls and the atmospheric, traditional souq markets.
Style & Character
The hotel is contemporary, luxurious and very comfortable. The décor in the many restaurants and bars is sophisticated, with elegant custom furnishings and a style to match each cuisine.
Service & Facilities
The sun seems to always shine here so there’s much to occupy you outdoors; there’s a temperature-controlled outdoor swimming pool with a lush pool bar, plus a children’s splash pool and a splash pool with underwater mood music! You can relax in the Jacuzzi, play tennis, volleyball, basketball or badminton. In addition, there are 2 large, fully equipped gymnasiums, 2 saunas, 2 steam rooms, squash courts and, after all that you’ll certainly need to sample the massage facilities!

The 583 stylish, well-designed rooms and suites feature lavish designer furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. The Deluxe Rooms have either Japanese, Arabic or Indian décor and are beautiful spaces but the Business Class Rooms include complimentary access to a lounge which serves complimentary breakfast, afternoon and evening snacks and has a happy hour. Your optimum accommodation though is definitely the Suites; vast, stylish, with a separate living area, they also include lounge access, plus a private reception area for ease of check-in.
Food & Drink
Although there’s lots of great restaurants in Doha, if you don’t fancy heading out to explore you certainly don’t need to – there are 19 establishments in the hotel itself! Choose from nine restaurants, four all-day dining cafés and bistros and 7 bars. Whether you fancy a steak, Indian, seafood, Tapas, Chinese, Japanese or Italian you won’t be disappointed; the standard of both the food and service is reassuringly high. After dinner head to one of the 7 bars serving a fine selection of wine, beer, cocktails and spirits. Each has a unique vibe but if you’re ready to party the night away, Doha’s largest entertainment nightclub, Qube also resides in the hotel.
