We just had to include this hotel! Set on its own island inside the chic area of The Pearl, the Kempinski Hotel is positively palatial. Enjoy the privacy of the island and lounge on the beautiful white sand beaches taking in panoramic views of the Persian Gulf!
This hotel is amazingly equipped for any kind of event you could think of, from intimate dinners catered with some amazing culinary delights to grand galas and conferences held in glittering ballrooms – this hotel can do it all! Not to mention as an added bonus, when you’re feeling sore the next day from all the fun you had last night – there’s a world class spa waiting for you.
Sheer luxury, the Mandarin Oriental is a 5-star hotel located in the centre of Msheireb Downtown Doha, the new lifestyle and cultural heart of the city. This is the perfect venue for those looking for something ultra-swish, as the Mandarin Oriental boasts several special touches that make you feel like royalty during your time there.

The Raffles Hotel is a gorgeous new development taking shape in the heart of Qatar. You can find this hotel in an avant-garde architectural masterpiece, where each room promises a balcony with a breath-taking view of Doha and the Persian Gulf.
The Raffles also features amazing events space just waiting to be broken in, including the spectacular Katara Hall, with 3,600 square meters of event space! The hotel also features smaller events rooms with state-of-the-art technology making it perfect for corporate gatherings.
If you’re looking for amazing gastronomy and dining experiences, the Raffles has some of the best, with a roof top cigar lounge and Italian cuisine whipped up by 3 star Michelin Chef Enrico Crippa.
You can find this hotel in one of the modern architectural masterpieces that Qatar is famous for, the Katara Towers – a venue which embodies Qatar’s vision for the future! This hotel is stunning, inside out – beautifully outfitted in tastefully luxurious décor, you’ll never want to leave!
One of our favourite features about the Fairmont is how eco-conscious it is! With some serious green credentials, the Fairmont is leading the way for a more sustainable Qatar and is consciously trying to reduce its carbon footprint at every turn – so if you’re looking for a sustainable event in Qatar, the Fairmont makes an excellent venue!
One of the first names that comes to mind when thinking luxury, the Ritz Carlton is a 5-star staple across the globe for good reason! Set on a private island in West Bay Lagoon, the Ritz Carlton has created a resort built on the core principle of sheer luxury.
Take your events to the next level by holding them in this luxury venue. The Ritz has amazing business facilities making for smooth, expertly tailored corporate meetings. If you’re looking to let your hair down, then there’s a number of different choices from grand ballrooms to outdoor lounges. However, over at Panoptic we think there shouldn’t be a separation between business and fun, why not mix both!
Another entry on this list that’s a household name synonymous with Luxury, and one we just had to include on this list of the top hotels in Doha – The Four Seasons. A gorgeous hotel with amazing service, live every moment in the upmost luxury while you stay here. Make use of the hotels amazing concierge and be waited on hand and foot.
If you’re looking for an amazing culinary experience – the Four Seasons is one of the absolute best venues for this.
