Last night, Marhaba was generously invited to attend the official opening party at the Hilton Doha called ‘Festival of the Senses’. As I drove up, there were fabulously dressed stilt-walkers wearing white flowing sheer material that depicted wings. It was a sight to see – guests entered by red carpet in to the hotel. The lobby was full of people mingling and enjoying refreshments and the atmosphere was great!

We were then invited into the ballroom where there was an official opening speech followed by a lot of exciting entertainment. There were Swiss violinists, South American dancers and singers and guided tours through the hotel and spa, with a free shoulder massage too!

If you haven’t already been to the Hilton Doha you absolutely have to visit. There are several restaurants, a private beach, the wonderful eforea spa and Trader Vics! For more information, call the hotel on 4423 3333 or visit their Facebook page.
