From the top hotels, to the most sought-after branded spa names in the business, when it comes to spas in Qatar luxury is the name of the game. We’ve whittled it down to these 5 gems for you to indulge yourself!
In this constant state of busy-ness we’re all in, did you know that not just mind or muscles can benefit from a day at the spa – but also your lymphatic system too? If you’re unsure exactly what that is, or how to pronounce it (lim-fa-tic), it’s the system we all possess that rids our bodies of waste by moving fluid around our circulatory system and out through our kidneys. It leaves us feeling less sluggish and with that post-facial glow we all long to last.
So, if ever you needed an excuse to kick back in your robe for a day, then this it! Be good to yourself, and the benefits will show not just on the outside but the inside too. So, without further adieu, here’s our roundup of our Top 5 favourite spa treatments in Doha! Enjoy!

Bliss Spa, W Hotel, West Bay
Prepare yourself to be on cloud nine with this patented (yes really), natural, biodegradable heat technology that’s incorporated into the Lava Shell® massage exclusive to Bliss Spa. Due to the unique shape and angles of the lava shells, they become an extension of the therapist’s hands, deploying deeply therapeutic relief to where it’s needed with utter warmth. Fantastic for shooting muscle aches and just overall relaxation – especially as the temperature outside dips!

The Four Seasons Spa, West Bay
Indulge in a luxurious traditional Hammam with a touch of opulence. This treatment begins with an AMRA foot ritual continued with Gold Hammam Soap and Steam Body Cleanse, then a full exfoliation of the body using traditional Kassa gloves. A Gold Rejuvenating Body Polish follows with a Gold Rejuvenating Rhassoul Body Wrap treatment to hydrate and regenerate your skin. The ritual ends in a comfortable treatment room with a relaxing body moisturizer using Gold Rejuvenating Body Butter and finishes with a mini-facial. The whole experience just feels pure…gold!

Remède Spa, The St. Regis Doha
Improve the texture of your skin and its appearance with a selection of rich body polishes that will gently brush away and resurface your skin. After exfoliation, an indulgent warm shower will awaken the senses and prepare the body for an application of vitamin-rich emulsion that leaves the skin incredibly soft and luminous. It’s utterly divine!
