Founded on a philosophy of healthy living, Al Shaqab Hotel offers guests an unprecedented new concept in hospitality – one steeply rooted in Qatar’s rich equestrian history

Designed to redefine the boutique hotel experience, Al Shaqab Hotel promotes healthy, active lifestyles with a special focus on physical activities and a balanced diet. Ensconced in lush natural surroundings – in Al Shaqab’s sprawling and scenic equestrian complex in Education City – Al Shaqab Hotel, the first of its kind in Doha, provides guests with a tranquil ‘getaway’ from the fast-paced city life.


The hotel’s health-driven goals reflect the very vision of Al Shaqab – a leading, world-class global center for equine professionals.

Guided by passion for preserving and perpetuating the Arabian horse in Qatar, Al Shaqab was founded in 1992 at Al Shaqab battle site – where Bedouins had fought a pivotal battle that led to Qatar's independence more than a century ago. Today, Al Shaqab stands as an enduring tribute to the Arabian horse and the tradition of equestrian excellence in Qatar.

In line with this vision, Al Shaqab Hotel, managed by AMLAK, was created to offer guests a relaxing, invigorating experience – one that captures the essence of Al Shaqab’s storied history and steadfast dedication to healthy living.

Al Shaqab Hotel, which features a total of 70 guest rooms and 24-hour in-room dining facilities, provides guests with unlimited access to an array of hotel amenities including the use of Marwan Club – an exclusive private-members club equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, the hotel offers equestrian riding packages and facility tours. Marwan Club’s name is inspired by Marwan Al Shaqab, the award-winning 2000 bay Arabian stallion; today, the venue boasts a fitness zone, swimming pool, as well as steam and sauna rooms and Kids Zone that offers families peace of mind as they leave their little ones in the care of well-trained childcare specialists.
In parallel, Al Shaqab Hotel offers guests a unique experience with its innovative Stay, Ride, Swim package. This new offering enables guests to stay at the hotel, enjoy the exceptional equestrian facilities at Al Shaqab and cool off in the sparkling pool at Marwan Club. Moreover, the Al Shaqab Hotel team will arrange for tours of Al Shaqab stables and paddocks for its guests.

Guests can also indulge their taste buds at Chef’s Garden, a truly unique Farm-to-Table restaurant concept that focuses on healthy and delicious food, with locally sourced and organic produce served when available.

“Al Shaqab Hotel isn’t just a l5.pngodging facility – it is an unprecedented, ground-breaking hospitality concept designed to promote wellness, serve as a catalyst for an active lifestyle and entice guests to appreciate the benefits of healthy living,” said Karim Abdelhamid, Director of Operations – Hospitality at AMLAK. “Qatar has long spearheaded efforts to bolster the health and wellbeing of its people. Al Shaqab Hotel echoes that vision and further cements Qatar’s unwavering commitment to ensuring a happier, healthier nation.”
