Doha Holidays

History meets modern day in Doha, Qatar’s glittering capital city and one of the world’s most thriving metropolises.

With a skyline that constantly changes, beautiful beaches, landmark attractions, and desert landscapes – Doha evolves before your eyes. Oozing with style, one moment you’ll find yourself wandering a traditional souq on the hunt for beautiful fabric and spices, and the next you will be stumbling across a contemporary shopping mall. Each corner you turn will offer something new and exciting. Visit museums, galleries, and theatres, before heading off on an overnight desert safari, or enjoy a romantic dinner cruise on an authentic dhow boat. The possibilities are endless.

A trip to Doha perfectly complements a beach escape to the Maldives; enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life before jetting off to your own slice of remote paradise. 

Destination Highlights
  • Stroll the corniche in the early morning
  • Shop until you drop in a new mall or at the souq
  • Stay in luxurious accommodation
  • Experience the desert on a 4x4 adventure
