Planning a trip to Qatar? Here's our top 5 luxury hotel choices!

June 2016

1. W Doha Hotel and Residences

The W Doha Hotel and Residences is certainly as luxurious as they come. The 441 roomed multi-storey hotel is located in the West Bay part of Doha, and offers 360 degree views of the up and coming city’s skyline. The more classic rooms, known as the Spectacular Rooms, start from 890 Qatar Riyals. However, the hotel’s most luxurious suite, named the Extreme WOW suite (understandably why), covers a whopping 300 square meters. The Extreme WOW suite includes an aqua vision TV, in-room check-in and check-out service, a fully stocked cocktail bar, a hanging aquarium, and a hexagonal bathtub. However, if you like the sound of the Extreme WOW Suite, then it will set you back around a whopping 20,900 Qatar Riyals!

Not only does the W Doha Hotel and Residences cater for humans, it also caters for our four legged friends. The P.A.W service (pets are welcome) offered by the hotel includes a pet walking service, a custom pet bed, litter boxes, and even pet toys.

What makes the W Doha Hotel and Residences really stand out is its 24 hour Whatever/Whenever service. Rather self-explanatory, the hotel staff will go out of their way to provide you with whatever you want at any time of day. What’s not to love…?
