Hotel's Favorite
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at one of the sea facing villas at Banana Island. From start to finish, everything was magical - the ambience, hospitality, amenities and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meals at Al Nahham and Riva, were rejuvenated at the spa, and had fun walking around the the beautiful property, and taking advantage of the bowling alley and cinema. A special thanks to all the staff who were extremely hospitable - Arman, Amin, Esther, and Sanjeev - thank you for making such a welcoming environment for us! Hope to revisit again soon!

Just came for a day trip but next time will stay a few days on the island. All the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Special shout out to Anupam at Riva and James on the beach, they both went above and beyond. Banana Island is a hidden gem that all visitors to Qatar should visit!

Booking staff bad but excellent service and staff. Good place for kids to have fun full day. No major free activity for adults, everything is charged extra but heaven for kids… musical welcome is a cherry on the cake.

Being unable to travel outside the country, me and my family decided to have s staycation in this lovely place and celebrated my wife’s birthday at the same time. Apart from the outstanding list of things to enjoy here from the luxury boat transfer, huge room with tranquil view from the balcony, facilities for entertainment, kids club/water park, pool, the beach and smooth overall transaction – I thought that the atmosphere of serenity this place provides you within Doha is the highlight of all making it a worthwhile one. We would also like to commend the delectable food we experience from Q Lounge and Azraq. Finally, a great appreciation to the hospitality of the team; Sarah - Reservation Arix & Maganda - Valet Rhea, Kristal & Taofiq – Reception Kay & Manmohan – Q Lounge

Amazing experience for my whole family. From the main land to the island was totally impressive. It is a bit expensive but I can say that it is all worth it. Thank you Banana Island. We'll surely come back.

They hotel is a place is nice, as management wise dose not deserve 2000 QR per night, they cant handle little busy weekend you might need to wait for awhile to get a buggy or you can just jump with any of the carrying items buggy if they are free, al nahum restaurant it has a very nice decoration the food was not worth 450 QR for 3 Pearson we waited awhile to get the food and if you need anything you need to speak to couple of the staff to get what you ask for, for the fairy we called them they confirm the timing then they called to reschedule then they call to give us the first time we scheduled. Thank you for the bad experience
