My Second Trip to Doha, Qatar Sep 2014

My Second Trip to Doha, Qatar Sep 2014

It’s my second trip to Doha and I traveled with Qatar Airways, which arrived in Doha new airport. The trip was smooth with excellent landing both ways and the staff were excellent.

We stayed at the Sharq Village that is part of The Ritz-Carlton. Accommodations include 174 luxury rooms and suites housed in 14 villas “two floors each villas”, including the Royal Villa.

The staffs are friendly, with good service, although I didn’t like the bed, it wasn’t comfy. I tried the massage in hotel Six Senses Spa, and it was good. We had our dinner in Parisa restaurant locate in the hotel, and it was very tasty.

Plus, it’s very close to the airport and Souq Waqif.

The next day we went to Disney Ice Show that I reserved in advance through Virgin online site. The show was amazing, we enjoyed every minute of it. The only problem that we faced was that the place is far from the city and has no taxi in the area, so make sure you have taxi to take you and pick you up after the show finish.

In the evening we went to Souq Waqif, where you can find different interesting items. Plus different shows performed by the locals.

The next day we went to Villaggio Mall for some shopping.

It was a beautiful three days, with lot of activity, though the weather was very hot, which I suggest you travel there in winter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TopCoat Nail Spa Kuwait

TopCoat Nail Spa Kuwait

It still not officially opened, but I had the chance to try it early this week

It’s small place, which I like, so it will never be crowded, with sea view, lovely staff and pretty owner. Plus the manicure and pedicure service, they have hair treatments.

And since it’s not officially opened I can’t give my fair opinion on the service, but so far, they were good. The most thing caught my eyes was the bowl for the jewelry, loved the idea, which I never seen in any other Nail Spa Salons. Thumbs Up  :)

Wish them the best Luck

My trip to Muscat, Oman.

My trip to Muscat, Oman.

It wasn’t my first trip to Muscat, and I don’t think it will be the last. And I stayed at Al-Bandar Shangri La Resort (for the second time), the first time at Al-Waha, and the third is Al-Hussain, which is only for Businessmen and Honeymoon (no children allowed, not even for the restaurants). I went through the Oman Air.

Oman people are very respectful and polite, and they serve even if they don’t know you. The country has many incredible neutral mountains and sea. Most people go for hiking, fishing and diving. And there is another activity. I went for relaxing.

I reserved a private sea trip with Luluat Al Day Maniyat, which includes fishing, snorkeling, dolphins view, banana boot, and privet beach.

Places that must be visited while staying there are Sultan Qaboos Grand Masjid (open for visitors from 8am to 10am), Royal Opera House (open for visitors from 8am to 10am), and Muttrah Souq (old Souq).

 

 

Six Senses Spa. Kuwait

Six Senses Spa. Kuwait

I enjoyed each minute of the massage; I tried the Vietnamese massage (cost 45 K.D for 80 min), which included the air cups in the end. The Masseuse knows exactly what she’s doing, and the amount of pressure she needs to apply.

I left with a smile in my face and satisfaction; I will try more treatments in the future.
