Featured Image Caption: Doha Qatar Lifestyle
Want to break the bank with magnificent and extravagant experiences while you are in Doha? It doesn’t matter what your reasons might be, but since you landed on this page, I bet that you want to experience the best of what this city has to offer and this page tells you exactly how.
Doha is a city primarily known for its beautiful traditional & modern architecture, worship places and libraries. Qatar, being the wealthiest countries globally, definitely does know how to put that money to fair use. However, there is more to Doha than just architecture and libraries. It’s a playground for the rich, powerful, and the influential.
Below are a few things to do in Doha to get a full “Royalty-Like Near Eastern experience”.
Visit The Pearl-Qatar
One of the most luxurious things you can do is visit this impeccable human-made island, which showcases Qatar’s princely lifestyle by exhibiting its lavish townhouses, highly esteemed beaches, and some of the most revered restaurants and “chill spots”.
Stay at the Four Seasons Hotel
The Four Seasons Hotel is hands down one of the poshest hotels to stay in. The pricing per night starts from around USD 357. Talk about POSH!
The Four Seasons Hotel is located right next to a private marinara featuring a 360-degree view of the Arabian Gulf, and even a chance of running into one of Qatari dignitaries and Gulf politicians (many of whom are royals) gracing the halls.
Admire or acquire falcons!
If you want to add an exotic pet to your family, why not consider a falcon?
Falcons have been maintained by Arabs as a status symbol as they can cost up to USD 275,000!
Once appropriately trained, you can destress with the Royalty in the Gulf. Falconry is one of the most common leisure activities.
Fulfill your thirst of hippophilia
Want to get a closer look or even a glamorous selfie at the stunning, award-winning Arabian horses? Visit Al Shaqab, Qatar Foundation’s equestrian centre.
Most Arabian horses that won the World Championship Show in Paris are from this equestrian centre, Al Shaqab.
Lose yourself at the Marsa Malaz Kempinski Hotel
The royal lifestyle is incomplete if you don’t hit that floor at one of the hottest nightclubs in Doha. Reserve a table now and revel in one of the biggest hip-hop nights with a top-notch service provided by the staff and endless rhythmic beats of the DJ spinning the set!
Book a mid-centre stall at the Qatar Opera House
Experience the soul-satisfying philharmonic orchestras or solo classical gigs at the Qatar Opera House. This beautiful Opera House can entertain up to 550 guests alongside a grand hall for executives and VIP.
Ride in luxurious cars
Getting around and living a royalty lifestyle does require a top-dollar ride. The Middle East is packed with luxury cars, and it will be unfortunate if you miss out on getting one.
You can either buy a car or rent a car in Doha Qatar. If you are alone, you can book a stylish coupe, while if you are with you a large group, you can rent a van or even opt for bus hire with driver.
Want a customized car to go with your image? Doha got you. You can be prodigal with custom-tailored precious stones as accessories for your ride.
If precious stones don’t satiate you, they’ll make you matching designer outfits, handbags, shoes, you name it you have it!
Need a break from the city and get closer to mother earth? Dine-in at Regency Sealine Camp. Savor the sunset with the Arabian grilled feast by the sea.
While you are in Doha, don’t forget to try these enticing local dishes; matchbooks, camel meat, dates, fatayer, Qatari sweets, and Yemeni honey.
Don’t get put off by the names, as the saying goes, “Everyone eats and drinks, but few appreciate the taste.”
Confucius (551-479 BC)
Sky’s the limit when it comes to living like Royalty!
