“Nice Mall, duplicate of Venetian Vegas/Macau”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This mall is about 30-40 min from city center. Moment you walk in, you'd think you are in the Venetian Casino Hotel Las Vegas or Macau because it looks exactly the same. Exactly.

One floor, not particularly huge. Has all the high end brands, LV, Gucci, Cartier...etc Food court surrounds an ice skating rink. Lots of choices at the food court, along with other restaurants in the mall. Has a Carrefour there. Overall, its a nice to walk around, though Souq Waqif has a much more middle-eastern feel to it. So if you didnt need to buy high end things, I recomend Souq Waqif first.

“It is a Middle Eastern Mall. Enough said.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Villaggio is a shopping complex, but it is better than most in Doha - it just feels a little more relaxed, is not just a cavernous multilayer box and has some reasonable shops. Or it could just be that it has that it is so kitschy with its indoor fake vias, canal and skies it you just cannot help but relax a little!

I visited the Mall several times during my holiday,it is beautiful inside.part of it is just like Venice with a canal and gondolas running through the middle.The roof is painted just like the sky.It has a big supermarket and quite a variety of shops.You can eat from a Macdonalds,or a number of different styles of places to eat.It also has an ice rink and an amusement area for the children.

“Another tacky mall”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a cool place if you like replicas. It is really a poor replica of Venice and even a poor replica of other malls in Vegas and Singapore that try to create Venetian canals. It was also very surprising that I couldn't find a nice monument to those poor children who died in the fire at this mall.

The cinema there was pretty good but the shops are similar to those in other malls in the Gulf.
