Qatar holidays - Luxurious hotels and authentic experiences
One of the lesser explored areas of the Arabian Peninsula, holidays in Qatar are now on the wish list of every discerning traveller. With desert-bound adventures, seemingly endless golden coastlines, and a cultural experience you’ll relish, Qatar has gained a reputation for being a luxurious destination.
Explore the awe-inspiring natural wonders, such as the haunting Singing Sand Dunes, or venture into the hub of Qatar to sample culinary delights, local crafts and vibrant banter at one of the souks. Qatar is a country built on a huge diversity of cultures and backgrounds. This has created a unique culture that incorporates classic Arabian with an international flair. Qatar is one of our top destinations for upcoming holidays.
A varied destination for the whole family
Blessed with glorious sunshine throughout the year and superb quality hotels, Qatar is the perfect place for a stopover as you travel east or for a longer stay to relax and recharge your batteries. Discover Qatar and you'll find this country is an intriguing mix of natural beauty and heritage with modern skyscrapers and wide-ranging attractions.
It might be a cliché but there really is something for everyone. If you’re seeking luxurious hotels, glamorous restaurants and world-class shopping, Qatar holidays tick all those boxes. Families will love the theme parks and watersports. Culture lovers will revel in the National Museum, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Al Zubarah Fort, Souq Waqif and Katara Cultural Village. Whilst those seeking adventure will enjoy a trip out to the desert in a 4x4 for dune bashing and an exploration of the spectacular Inland Sea.
There are a few public holidays to be aware of when booking your holidays in Qatar. Eid Al Fitr usually falls in May, whilst Ramadan and Eid Al Adha take place in the summer. Please ensure you are aware of any dates and restrictions, including the consumption of food and drink between sunrise and sunset in public spaces, and that they are subject to change. For the whole year Qatar is blessed with wonderfully warm temperatures (it's especially hot in the summer months), so it really is a fabulous choice for beach holidays.
