Recently I stayed at the Sharq village & Spa in Doha, Qatar. This is truly a one-of-a-kind hotel, which distinguishes itself from all the hotels I have ever visited. Sharq Village & Spa’s authentic Arabian design stands out while still featuring first-rate luxury amenities.Your first step in the lobby will be as if you are stepping into a true Arabic palace. The property represents, as the name reveals, a small village containing everything you need. This will feel as if you are escaping daily life and give you ultimate relaxation.

The list of amenities is endless, but here I go just to name a few. Pampering is at the core of Sharq Village & Spa, a Ritz-Carlton hotel, and this manifests itself among other things in the wonderful Six Senses Spa featuring over 6,500 square meters of space and twenty-three treatment rooms. This tranquil retreat is the largest in the region, perfect for anybody seeking to sooth their soul. Also located in Sharq Village & Spa, a Ritz-Carlton hotel is the in-house traditional Souq where you will discover an array of boutique stores selling anything from jewelry to authentic Arabian Oud. Dining at Sharq Village & Spa is incredible, all the restaurants have this down to the last detail. There are many restaurants to choose from, which each has their own unique culinary characteristics. My personal favorites are Parisa restaurant, the Cyan Lounge and Al Jalsa.

To wind down and relax during the day you have the luxury to choose between the pool and the beach. Both have food and beverages services available while relaxing. Located to the hotel is the full private beach completed by gazebos and a stunning view of the skyline of Doha. In the evening you can choose to romantically dine in a Gazebo with a full view of the beach and the skyline. Lose yourself in a fantasy of fairy-tale luxury. For some sweat and gain you can visit the Fitness Centre, which hands on has the most complete gym I have seen in a hotel. If you prefer a more private setting, there are many classes available and even a personal trainer to train you one-on-one.

Concluded I can state that this luxurious hotel provides traditional Arabian hospitality and exceptional culinary experiences in its restaurants and lounges. All rooms and suites offer the best in comfort and feature all the amenities you need for a flawless holiday. Evoking its powerful and rich Qatari heritage, you will step into what feels like a true Arabic palace.

Staying at Sharq Village & Spa, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel on your next holiday to Doha will whisk you away to another world. Stroll the private beach, wander the intimate courtyards and soak in all the luxuries that it has to offer. Sharq Village & Spa, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel will make you truly feel like royalty.
