Quick Tour of Westin Hotel @ Doha, Qatar with Travelgirl

Hi Everyone,

Our visit to Doha will end in a few days so I’ll take this opportunity to show you around The Westin Resort in Doha. We booked this hotel as a stopover option when we booked our air ticket so our room for two nights was just $100USD! That was an awesome deal considering this is a 5-star hotel with great reviews.

Doha is hot around the clock so I nice pool is needed. There are two pool options in the resort. There is a swim up pool bar, a kids pool. If you prefer something indoors, they do have a heated indoor pool option. By night, one of the pools was turned in a poolside party area for guests who want to join in.

Other than the pools, the hotel also offers a few squash courts. One court was used during our quick visit but I thought it was a nice facility to have compared to others we’ve seen in other countries.

Apart from the sport options, there is also a nice gym, a hairdresser, massage and beauty salon & various high-quality restaurants.

The resort was huge and there were two sections. We stayed on the further side but also the newer end. The glass roof was put into good use as by day, the sun hits directly through to the hotel and by night, you can see the stars through the glass. On every floor, there are many sparkly lights to ensure the hotel is lit up nice and bright.

The service here was excellent. Nothing to fault and would consider staying here once more if we stop over Doha again. If you book online, it is pretty expensive but if you try to book it through Qatar airways during promotional periods, this hotel is definitely worth being picked as the stopover hotel.

Thanks for reading

Spending New Years Eve with Travelgirl

Hi Everyone,

After hosting our last Steem Monsters tournament for the year last night, it is time for some relaxing time! We decided not to go out to watch the fireworks because the weather in Sydney is too hot and stuff to be outdoors for an extended period of time. The weather forecast also mentioned rain and storm so I guess also it was a wise choice to stay indoors.

We just came back from a weekend away yesterday so still lots of washing to be done. We had loads of fun spending time at the resort pool, eating great food and play big 2 and mahjong which I haven’t touched since uni days. I probably became the biggest “water fish” the whole weekend. Oh well, I guess it was all for fun and everyone had a great time. More on that weekend trip later in another blog entry.

We are planning tonight to watch the fireworks at 9am with the kids on TV after dinner then try to stay awake for the countdown fireworks which Sydney is famous for each year. What are your plans for new years Eve?

Hope you all have a great time!

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019!!
