Splendour in the Sand

There are locations. And then there are luxe locations that define destinations. The newest arrival on the global hospitality scene, Al Messila, the newest offering from The Luxury Collection group, is not just the only verdant patch in central Doha in Qatar on Google Maps, it’s also an exclusive cocoon that lets you commune with nature in the lap of uber-luxury. Al Messila (“where the water flows” in Arabic) is located on 33 acres of mature forest. The majestic sweep of the manicured driveway ushers you into the dazzling foyer that sets the tone for the resort. A gilded palette in burnished gold, regal purples and dazzling Italian chandeliers pour light into every nook as you sit in the central atrium, sipping your delicately brewed Arabic coffee.
