DOHA: With Qatar now open to fully vaccinated visitors, Discover Qatar, Qatar Airways’ destination management division, has partnered with Qatar Airways Holidays to launch specially curated packages to welcome international visitors visiting friends and family in Qatar for a long-awaited reunion.
The State of Qatar has mandated that all tourist arrivals have a confirmed hotel reservation as part of the entry conditions. To help meet this requirement, Discover Qatar, in collaboration with Qatar Airways Holidays, is offering exclusive deals with significant savings on a variety of hotels that will enhance the customer’s family and friends’ experience in Qatar, allowing them to make new memories as they reunite.
His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Airways Group, stated, “We are very proud to be playing our part in reopening our country to visitors in the safest way possible and supporting the next step in the development of Qatar’s tourism industry.”
Surrounded by crystal waters and a unique biodiverse ecosystem, Qatar has so much to offer in terms of rediscovering nature, stellar architecture, and providing a world inspired by both modernism and traditions.
“The city and desert tours will allow our passengers to enjoy every step of their journey with us, and we hope that many people will be able to experience Qatar’s renowned hospitality, culture, and heritage, as well as the vibrant city of Doha, through Discover Qatar’s exclusive packages.”
The ‘Family and Friends’ packages start at QAR 1,721 per person and are available for a five, seven, or ten-night stay at Qatar’s leading luxury hotels, including the Hilton Doha, Hilton Salwa Beach Resort, Ritz-Carlton Doha, Mondrian Doha, Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, and Al Messila Resort.
Each package includes a free daily breakfast, a 20% discount on food and beverages at the hotel, and airport transfers.
A four-hour ‘Discover Doha’ city tour of the most iconic attractions and landmarks, as well as an exciting desert tour to one of Qatar’s hidden gems – the scenic Inland Sea, are also included. Children under the age of 12 who accompany their families are welcome to stay for free.
Customers can also add exclusive meet and greet offers to their package to make their arrival at Hamad International Airport as comfortable and seamless as possible.
Discover Qatar is also providing guests with incredible savings on its renowned city tours and excursions. On the ‘Discover Qatari Culture,’ ‘Discover the Mangroves of Qatar,’ ‘Discover Regional Cuisine,’ ‘Discover Souq Waqif,’ and ‘Discover Arabic Coffee Traditions’ tours, customers can book a tour for two people for the price of one. In addition to these packages, visitors can book any of these tours for three people for the price of two, including the ‘Discover Luxury Shopping’ and ‘Discover the Icons of Qatar’ tours.
