Four Seasons Hotel Doha
This hotel takes pool day pretty seriously and that’s why you’ll almost always find us here on a Doha summer day. There are seven grotto pools, kids’ pools with slides, Jacuzzis and a private beach, too. A shades doctor will pass by every hour to clean your sunnies. The staff really spoil you with towels, fruits and even sunscreen. And where there’s sunscreen, there’s Time Out.
