Rich in art, culture and tradition, Qatar is a country waiting to be discovered. It is centred around the generous hospitality characteristic of the local culture and the world’s best hotel and restaurant brands have created an oasis of luxury in the heart of the Middle East. Travellers can immerse themselves in the destination, home to an extensive range of five-star hotels and resorts, world-class spas and wellness centres, and restaurants with Michelin-star chefs.
Couples can unwind during a spa treatment at a world-class resort, such as Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som, the largest wellness destination in the region, soak up the sights of Qatar like never before in a hot air balloon, then dine at one of Qatar’s many international restaurants, such as Nobu Doha, the largest Nobu restaurant in the world, offering idyllic views of the Arabian Gulf.

We welcome travellers to the country to relax, unwind and spend quality time together.”
