Banana Island Resort Doha unveils summer offers

Banana Island Resort Doha, a leading destination for luxury in Qatar, has unveiled a diverse bundle of treats for summer, allowing guests to indulge in the best culinary delights prepared by the resort's elite chefs.

The resort’s unparalleled gastronomic offerings aim to suit the tastes of both adults and kids, making it a family-friendly dining experience every time. For those looking to gather intimately in a specially prepared Bedouin tent or “majlis”, there is an option to enjoy a feast of slow-cooked marinated lamb or “shuwa”, along with other specialties from the renowned Al Nahham restaurant.

During Fridays, Azraq restaurant welcomes guests to the “Chillout Brunch”, where diners get to enjoy the signature dishes of resort's restaurants – Al Nahham, Q Lounge, Riva, and Ted’s – all served in one venue. These outlets, along with Azraq, have successfully carved a niche for offering global cuisines such as Arabian, American, Asian, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisines. In addition, seafood and dessert lovers will definitely be able to satisfy their cravings.

Meanwhile, guests may join the “Oriental Express Brunch” every Saturday in Azraq as well, from 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Authentic Southeast Asian dishes will take guests on an exceptional flavourful journey, inspired by the Oriental Express train concept.

For momentous occasions such as anniversaries or wedding proposals, the “Dining by Design” is the perfect option. Celebrate these romantic moments in a cabana along the beach, which can be personalized according to the guests’ specifications and preferences – from a gourmet collection of menus, or curate their own requests in collaboration with their chef for the evening.

Guests of the pool villas and overwater villas will be able to delight in floating trays filled with fruit snacks and fresh coconuts, or opt to enjoy their mornings with floating breakfast trays in their private pools. Exclusive dining experience in the comfort of one’s own villa is also worth a try, savouring the flavours of freshly-grilled BBQ being prepared by one of the resort’s skilled chefs.

For guests wishing to spend a full day of unforgettable moments on the island, the “Hello Beautiful Weather” Day Pass packages will enable them to enjoy the golden beach, the public pools, the exciting land and water sports activities, and the dishes from open restaurants on the day of their visit, complete with roundtrip luxury boat transfers.

Adding a sustainable dimension to leisure, the resort has recently introduced a golf activity using “ecobioball” – the first and only golf ball in the world with an exclusive design for practicing golf   close to marine environments. Guests hit the balls toward the sea, and these balls release fish food, increasing the sustainability and biodiversity of marine life.  Moreover, pontoon boat trips are also available for guests wishing to witness the marvellous sunset while cruising and enjoying an afternoon tea.

To promote a healthy and sporty lifestyle, in-house guests may join complimentary fitness classes conducted in the resort’s gym. These classes are divided into functional training workout (Wednesdays and Fridays) and stretching & mobility (Sundays and Thursdays). – TradeArabia News Service
