Make a day of it with your Privilee Membership!

Fuelling up for the day ahead is important, even if your only plans involve lying on a sun lounger and catching a tan.

As a Privilee Member, not only do you get free and unlimited access to the city’s best pools and beaches, but you can also avail discounts on dining – including breakfast.

Planning on catching up with your gal pals over an eggs benny, or heading out to treat your little ones with pancakes smothered in Nutella? Here are our five top breakfast and pool day picks.

The Kitchen, Hilton Doha The Pearl

Diners get the best of both worlds with The Kitchen’s offering, which features hot and cold buffet stations as well as unlimited à la carte plates. As a Privilee member, you and up to two guests will get to tuck into one of the city’s most popular breakfasts for less, with 15% off. 

If you’re an egg lover, this is definitely Qatar’s top breakfast and pool day pick, because the vast menu features the likes of the portobello egg sandwich, the Nordic, with spinach, smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce, or the signature avocado on toast, complete with tomato and poached eggs. The hero dish on the egg menu, however, has to be the short ribs benedict.

Sweet tooths, don’t panic, there are plenty of options for you, too. Indulge by ordering the banana bread with cinnamon cream, chocolate bits and walnuts, or enjoy coconut pancakes topped with diced mango and kiwi (the fruit totally makes it healthy, right?). For those who genuinely are on a health kick, opt for a protein bowl with granola and dried fruits and nuts, or mixed berries.

Whether you opt for something savoury or sweet, enjoy your meal on the outdoor terrace next to the hotel pool, which Privilee Members have complimentary access to seven days a week.

From there, you can work on your tan from one of the sun loungers, or head over to Hilton Doha The Pearl’s private beach. When hunger strikes later on in the day, you’ll also be able to avail a 15% discount at La Pergola Pool Bar.

Le Colonial at Alwadi Hotel Doha MGallery

Breakfast is so much more than just a meal, it’s a lifestyle. And if you think breakfast is life, Qatar’s only breakfast room Le Colonial has to be the top breakfast and pool day pick for you.

You can keep it classic at the breakfast buffet by ordering eggs your way, or by opting for an eggs benedict (royale, florentine or garlicky). The avocado toast, served on sourdough bread with feta cheese crumbled all over, is always a winner, too. 

Sweet options include crêpes with banana and Nutella or French toast with cinnamon and berries. Push the boat out by trying local plates such as saj bread stuffed with halloumi, or balaleet, a traditional Qatari breakfast of vermicelli flavoured with saffron and rose water before being served with fried eggs.

Inside, the décor tells the story of Qatar’s colonial past, while the outdoor terrace boasts a view out to Souq Waqif and the iconic Spiral Mosque. 

After you’re done, you’ll be able to lounge around next to the Alwadi Hotel Doha MGallery’s pool. Also boasting views out to the Spiral Mosque, the Mediterranean-style loungers are the perfect spot for whiling away the hours (and for snapping photos for the ‘gram).

Bywater or Wyld Erth at Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha

If you need more reasons to visit the gorgeous Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha for a pool day, there are two brilliant breakfast spots where you and three guests can dine with a 10% discount: Wyld Erth and Bywater.

Contemporary brassiere Bywater is the top choice for those heading out for breakfast with little ones. The family-friendly restaurant, which is best enjoyed on the outdoor terrace which overlooks the Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha’s main pool, has options to please even the pickiest of eaters.

The French toast, pancake and waffle menus are extensive, with kid-friendly picks like the choco-peanut pancake or the berry waffle with bananas, berries and peanut butter. Expect to see some messy, grinning faces here. 

For the adults, order the English muffin topped with poached egg, smoked salmon and caviar, or the Arabic-style shakshuka. Make your breakfast global by trying the wild rice nasi goreng or the miso ramen.

If you’re meeting up with your gym friends, or just trying to make healthy choices, book a table in Wyld Erth instead. The menu has been approved by ESPA Life International’s nutritionists, so no matter what you order from the breakfast menu, a healthy dish is guaranteed. Once breakfast is over and done with, kids can run off to the Wadi Lusail Waterpark, while adults can make the most of the main pool and private beach. Sounds like a dreamy day to us.

10% off dining for Privilee Members + 3 guests | Open 7 days a week: 6.30am – midnight (Bywater) and 10am – 8pm (Wyld Erth) | For reservations, call +974 4456 5770 (Bywater) or +974 4456 5781 (Wyld Erth)

Seasons Tea Lounge, Four Seasons Hotel Doha

Meet for a elegant breakfast, or a fancy afternoon tea at the chic Seasons Tea Lounge. It will transport you straight to the streets of Paris for you and up to three guests with a 15% discount. The atrium-style garden brings the outdoors inside for the perfect ambience to relax enjoy your meal with tableside service.

Try the Arabic breakfast which serves a variety of savory goodness such as shakshouka, crispy falafel, coriander potato, and hummus. If you are craving something sweet, enjoy the classic butter pancakes with your choice of blueberry, banana, or have it plain, served with maple syrup, cinnamon honey or nutella.

Once you are ready to leave this grand cafe, relax at one of the five dazzling pools in a lounge chair, or grab a cabana by the beach to Privilee like royalty.
