Four Seasons Hotel Doha

A haven of Arabic luxuriousness

Wielding traditional luxury and an excellent hospitality pedigree, Four Seasons Hotel Doha is the grand dame of the city.

With its own private beach, five different indoor and outdoor pools catering to all ages and lush manicured gardens, the hotel is a haven among the West Bay area’s towering buildings.

In a city studded with sumptuous stays, service at Four Seasons Hotel Doha is what sets it apart — it’s discreet yet personalized. This can mean customized T-shirts and bathrobes for returning guests or cold towels and sunglass cleaning by the pool.

Boasting eight restaurants and lounges, the hotel has also become one of the top players in Doha’s competitive culinary scene, hosting the excellent Elements for all-day dining, an upscale Italian eatery and a popular outpost of the renowned Nobu empire.

Our Inspector's Highlights

Things to Know

  • The Doha hotel is the go-to place to stay for many government delegations and visiting VIPs. While this makes for great for people watching, it also sometimes means associated security details and a crowded lobby.
  • Rooms, while plush, are a bit dated compared to the newer hotels in the area, but this doesn’t detract from the quality.
  • During the two Eid holiday periods (usually falling around June and late August), the hotel can fill up quickly, so be sure to book early or plan around these dates.
  • With the hotel located just off the Corniche, Doha’s infamous traffic can make airport transfers longer than expected.

The Rooms

  • All rooms in the luxury hotel have a view of the Arabian Gulf or the unique Doha skyline. Evenings are a treat thanks to the city’s famous blazing sunsets.
  • Suites have small step-out balconies that, while not really big enough to sit on, offer lovely breezes in the winter.
  • The large marble bathrooms are all fitted with full-sized bathtubs, separate showers and luxurious Crabtree & Evelyn bath products.
  • The West Bay Suites are great for families. The two-bedroom version offers a large table that can seat six, while the three-bedroom suite is set over two spacious levels in one of the hotel’s turrets with a separate sitting and dining room.

The Restaurants

  • With a sexy low-lit dining room and world-class Japanese fusion cuisine, Nobu Doha is set on the edge of the private Four Seasons marina (catch a buggy from the lobby) and is one of the most sought-after dinner reservations in town. Try the miso black cod and be sure to save room for the famed Nobu cheesecake.
  • Elements restaurant has gained a reputation for its varied international menu and innovative gin bar, but it’s the Chinese and Arabic dishes (try the Indonesian chicken or the mixed grill) that keep diners coming back for more.
  • Chef Marco Arlotti of Il Teatro hails from Milan and has crafted a menu of Italian favorites like veal Milanese as well as more adventurous offerings like locally caught red mullet stuffed with prawns and pistachio cream.
  • The Pool Grill is a hidden gem. Its international breakfast platters and all-day menu of comfort food staples make it a great spot to relax in the cooler months.
  • With comfortable armchairs and attentive service, The Library and Cigar Lounge is a popular after-work spot. Try the martini flight and pair it with the wagyu burger for a decadent end to a busy day.
