For a family holiday

Doha makes an ideal family destination with a host of child-friendly attractions including the Pearl-Qatar’s picturesque boardwalk, an array of watersports opportunities, and the exciting KidzMondo theme park.

For a couples holiday

For a romantic escape, consider a stay on Banana Island. Offering the ultimate couples retreat, the island prides itself on lavish villas, private beaches and world-class pampering in the Anantara Spa.

For a holiday with friends

For a friends' getaway, you can't beat the vibrant corniche of Doha. This vibrant strip is lined with stylish hotels, offering easy access to shopping malls, eateries, and a variety of nightspots that promise a lively atmosphere and unparalleled city views.

When to Visit

For the best weather, consider visiting Qatar between November and early April when days are pleasantly warm and perfect for sightseeing or beach lounging. This period offers a relief from the intense summer heat experienced from May to October.

However, if you can bear high temperatures and prefer fewer tourists, the summer months offer some great deals, providing an opportunity to explore Qatar’s indoor attractions like its high-end shopping malls or its wealth of museums. Do be aware that the holy month of Ramadan might fall during this period, which may affect the operating hours of some attractions and services.
