The Four Seasons Hotel Doha, Qatar

Doha, Qatar. Yes, the city which is highly anticipated to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A city that has vastly come to life in just a few years.

With my old man visiting for the week, we decided to take a spontaneous weekend trip and visit some family in Doha. With open arms, the team at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha, invited us to stay for two nights in their ambassador suite.

Perfect location for a summer getaway.

We arrived pretty late into Doha on Thursday night after our flight from Dubai was delayed by a few hours. Once we were in the taxi, I honestly couldn’t believe the amount of traffic there was on the streets at 10:30pm. I guess no one sleeps in this city.

Upon arriving to the luxurious property, I breathed a sigh of relief knowing I’m going to be feeling right at home in a matter of minutes. After a quick tour of the lobby and explanation of the hotel’s facilities, the concierge guided us to our Ambassador Suit. Here are a few pictures of the different rooms the hotel also offers:

Being dad’s birthday, the team ensured our entire stay will be an endless celebration. From the pillow cases on our beds reading ‘Happy Birthday’, to cakes and sweets being left on our coffee table each morning and afternoon. I don’t think either of us have received such a warm welcoming. Though, what caught my attention the most within the room, had to be the bathroom.

Up bright and early on Friday morning, I was presented with such an amazing piece from our suite’s balcony. Such picturesque scenery all around the property, but this took the prize. Feeling a little lazy, I decided to order breakfast in bed for the very first time. I’m usually a little proactive in the morning, but on this morning, I wasn’t moving out of bed until I had eaten something.

I could wake up to this view every morning.

Breakfast in bed? Yes please!

After having a slow start to the day, it picked up dramatically after we met with the family for a day of sight seeing, market visiting, mall shopping and huge consumption of food. We also visited The Pearl Doha, Qatar’s first artificial island populated with retail arcades, restaurants and residential buildings.

On our last day in Qatar, I spent the majority of the morning roaming around the hotel’s property to snap a few photos with my Fendi backpack.

One of my favourite pieces of art within the hotel, had to be the doves circling up into the hotel’s dome. Once all the photos were taken around the hotel, it was back up to the room to relax before meeting the family for lunch.

To cap off a memorable trip away, we dined at one of the hotel’s well-known restaurants, Teatro. From the word go, our waiter was a star. When you have three gentleman at the table without the company of any women, deciding on what to choose can be a little difficult. Our waiter went from suggesting starters and mains, to topping up our plates, as well as conversing with us on his background and time in Qatar. The bloke loves it here and I couldn’t blame!

I hardly snap a picture of what I'm eating, but Teatro's servings couldn't go unrecognised.

If you want to do some light light reading, or relax over some shisha, be sure to also check out some of the other hotel’s venues and facilities.

Now this is what you call a library!

So, if you plan on visiting Qatar’s capital before the influx of people in years to come, I highly recommend a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel. You will definitely not be disappointed.
