Our recommendations this summer.

Summer is here, and the Privilee Team has been busy exploring venues to help you beat the heat and make the most of it. Take a look at spots and experiences that have made our summer sizzle. Whether you’re looking to feel like you’re on vacation, stay cool in the city, uncover hidden gems, or stay active, we’ve got you covered!

Staying cool in the city 

With the summer heat in full swing, finding ways to stay cool has been my mission. Fortunately, there are plenty of Privilee venues that make it easy. One of my favourites is the rooftop pool at Alwadi Doha – MGallery Hotel Collection. The views of the city are amazing, and the pool itself is a great spot to relax and unwind. Plus, the chilled vibes and refreshing drinks make it a top choice for beating the heat without leaving the city.

Another go-to of mine is Mandarin Oriental, Doha. I love catching the sunset on the rooftop here. I usually hit the gym first and then spend the afternoon chilling poolside.

Uncovering hidden gems

I love discovering new spots, and Privilee has no shortage of hidden gems. Recently, I spent a day at The Ned Doha. It’s got a serene atmosphere that makes you feel like you've found a secret oasis in the middle of the city. 

The pool area is beautifully designed with The Ned’s unique look and feel. Think green and white striped sun loungers, lots of greenery, and the hotel’s iconic architecture. It’s great that there are shaded areas too - perfect for this time of year! If you're looking for a quiet escape this summer, check it out.

Experiencing the Mediterranean in Qatar

As I’m spending the summer in Qatar until September, I’ve been visiting Privilee venues that offer a Mediterranean vibe. I want to feel like I’ve escaped the city and get excited for my upcoming holiday! 

So far, I have loved Bagatelle Beach Club Doha (live the French Joi de Vivre in Doha!). I visited on a weekend and the vibe was on point - DJs, a nice crowd, entertainment - it was a really fun day. Privilee Infinite Members get 20% off food and drinks here, make sure to take a break from the heat and enjoy lunch at Bagatelle Restaurant - the truffle ravioli was my fave.

Feeling the burn

This summer, I've started an intense fitness routine, and my favourite part by far has been the HYROX training at Equipt Fitness

It’s a total game-changer! If you’re looking for a way to push your limits and feel the burn, this is it. 

HYROX training combines running with functional fitness, and it’s designed to test your endurance, strength, and determination. The workouts are high-intensity and super fun, with exercises like sled pushes, wall balls, and rowing. The energy in the studio is super warm and friendly, and the trainers are incredibly motivating, always pushing you to do your best. 

Privilee Infinite Members can join two complimentary fitness classes per week at Equipt Fitness. 

Visit these fitness studios if you’re ready for a challenge:

Getting a taste of Peru at Coya, W Doha

I’m a foodie, and one of my favourite discoveries recently has been Coya at the W Doha. If you’re a fan of Peruvian cuisine or just love trying new and exciting dishes, this place is a must-visit!

Coya is all about big flavours and a lively atmosphere. The moment you step inside, you’re greeted with colourful decor and a buzzing energy that makes you feel like you’ve been transported straight to Lima. The team are super friendly and knowledgeable, always ready to recommend dishes and make sure you have an amazing time.

The food is incredible. I started with the ceviche, which was fresh and zesty, with the perfect balance of flavours. The tiraditos were a highlight too – thinly sliced fish with a tangy sauce that had a kick!

Privilee Signature and Infinite Members, plus up to three guests get 20% off dining at Coya, W Doha.
