From world-class shopping to sophisticated restaurants, five-star hotels to breath-taking views and exciting adventures, Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) reveals the country’s top honeymoon spots, offering couples the best of the Middle East all in one place.

Newly-weds can explore the splendour of the country, while capturing memorable Instagram-worthy sights, spanning from Doha’s city-centre to the undulating sand dunes of the desert. Located on the Arabian Gulf, Qatar offers couples a wealth of the most unique and magnificent experiences and activities of Middle Eastern culture. With a range of natural landscapes, awe-inspiring architecture and holistic wellness retreats, as well as cuisines ranging from local and traditional to modern and international, there is something for every culture-seeking soul in Qatar.

Below is a snapshot of Qatar’s top Instagram-worthy honeymoon locations:

WHERE TO STAY:

The Four Seasons Hotel Doha: The Four Seasons Hotel Doha is an ideal seaside retreat in the heart of Qatar’s capital. The property features 10 restaurants, five grotto-style pools – two equipped with slides – a private beach, as well as a wellness centre, making it the ultimate playground for couples looking for luxury and relaxation.
Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara: Accessible by private catamaran, Banana Island Resort is an exclusive hotel that offers guests 2,400-feet of spectacular sandy and private beaches – perfect to get away from it all and reconnect with loved ones. With 141 rooms, suites and villas, a spa and balance wellness centre, as well as a surf pool and dive centre, this property is a vibrant hotel perfect for ocean enthusiasts.
Zulal Wellness Resort: Tucked away on Qatar’s Northern coast and opening later this year, this relaxation haven will offer the highest international service standards, rooted in traditional Qatari hospitality. The resort provides a range of treatments to allow couples to fully immerse in true serenity, surrounded by its natural and picturesque landscape. The property also marks the world’s first centre for Traditional Arabic Integrative Medicine (TAIM), to guide guests on a holistic path to wellness.

WHERE TO EAT:

Hakkasan Doha: Sistering London’s iconic restaurant and one of only 12 locations worldwide, Hakkasan Doha is an award-winning Chinese restaurant set in the gardens of the opulent St. Regis Doha Hotel. The restaurant offers couples a varied menu, including the signature Peking duck made using traditional Chinese techniques, and the ‘Only At Collection’ dining experience with option for sharers to sample the finest dishes exclusively available in Doha.

Candlelit dinner regency Sealine Camp: Partners can experience a specially prepared Arabian barbeque dinner beside the tranquil waters of the Inland Sea at Sealine Camp. Charming touches have been added to this dinner package to offer guests a romantic evening in the most beautiful setting, including being welcomed by a flower bouquet upon arrival.

Cut, Doha: A restaurant that exudes culinary finesse and service excellence, CUT by Wolfgang Puck is the perfect venue for a feast. Guests are invited to pass by the ‘floating staircase’ of the Mondrian Hotel, where the restaurant is situated, and choose from dishes such as grilled Arabian sea king prawns and locally farmed lamb chops.
WHAT TO DO:

Spa treatments at Sharq Village & Spa, Ritz-Carlton: One of the biggest and most luxurious spas in Qatar. Modelled after a traditional Qatari village, the spa has 23 treatment rooms and four spa areas, each with a different theme reflective of Qatar’s rich wellness, along with hammam rooms, saunas and a private ladies-only area. Nearly half of the treatments are dedicated to local experiences, offering a new way for honeymooners to familiarise themselves with a destination and enjoy local wellness practices and indigenous ingredients.
Souq Waqif: Take in the vibrant atmosphere of the city by heading to the Souq Waqif, Doha’s bustling marketplace, for a hand-in-hand stroll through the hundreds of alleyways and stalls. Visitors will stumble across traditional Qatari delicacies, discover the Falcon Souq – home to dozens of the country’s revered birds of prey, or be entertained in one of the several art galleries, events or local concerts on each day. The Gold Souq, which is next to the Souq Waqif, is an extensive gold market offering a range of beautiful jewellery, which in true market style can be haggled down in price.

National Museum of Qatar: Named as one of Time Magazine’s[i] greatest places to visit in 2019, the National Museum of Qatar stuns visitors upon entry with its spectacular architecture, inspired by the romantic rose-shaped crystal clusters of gypsum minerals, known as desert rose, found in the desert. The museum houses 11 immersive and experiential galleries, of which couples are guided through three significant chapters in the history of Qatar; its beginnings, life within Qatar and the country’s modern history. Offering diverse themes and compelling multisensory storytelling, this Museum is the perfect place for spouses to discover true Qatar culture.

Dune Bashing with Q Explorer Tourism: For pairs seeking a memorable rip-roaring experience, the thrill of conquering the dunes on a quad bike in the desert is sure to deliver. Speeding and slowing as your quad bike slides across the sand desert oasis of Khor Al Adaid, otherwise known as the Inland Sea, is the perfect activity to get your hearts racing as you capture your Instagram-worthy action shot.
