Chocolate masterclass at Sky Lounge
Chocolates are a way of life for some, which is why we found the ultimate thing to do this month - learn to make them! Experience the art of chocolate-making, where you can individually hand craft pralines, get to know the origins of base ingredients and practise necessary skills for successful home cooking. And all of this with a view on the 51st floor.

It might be hot outside, but you can’t complain if you get to spend it at the St. Regis Doha pool and beach. With their new summer day pass, guests can soak up the sunshine (lots of it) in an Olympic-sized swimming pool and take part in exhilarating leisure activities.
