The Movenpick Hotel is loved for more than its luxury. It offers an escape to a part of Doha not many get the chance to experience.

On the top floor resides Bay View 26 Wellness center, presenting a 5 star view along with your deep tissue massage or facial. Dine at ForKnife’s delicious buffet, or enjoy some light fare at Lime Tree Lobby Lounge. The best part about this Doha Hotel is its participation in Green Globe, to ensure itself as a Green and Sustainable property. What’s not to love?
