Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara

You can call this luxury beach resort a game changer for the way it is shaking up the Doha hotel scene. Let's start with the location. Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara is a 25-minute catamaran ride off the nation's coast and located on a private island. Can you guess what shape it is? Of course you can opt to arrive by helicopter and have a stunning view of the Dohaskyline before arriving at the luxury sanctuary with its 800m beach and remarkable 100m long lagoon pool.

The island location is a clear indication it is a relaxation and leisure resort as opposed to many of the business traveller-friendly towers of the mainland. Working on the assumption that once you have taken people you better give them a lot of entertainment options to keep them happy the resort is packed with leisure facilities. A spa, numerous dining facilities, a surf pool, waterslides, botanical gardens, mini-golf course, bowling alley and private cinema are on site. Not to mention water sports, tennis, kids' clubs and some of the prettiest architecture in
Doha's hotel scene.

Accommodation, as you would expect from the Anantara group with designer properties in the Maldives, Thailand and Dubai, is stunning. Eve the basic sea view rooms are large, boasting of a sea view and naturally romantic. But the large over-water villas are like nothing we have seen in Doha before.
