Dining on an Exotic Island in Doha – Taking the romance to a whole new level

Pool Side Dining in Abu Dhabi

Doha restaurants are a key feature of the city, and one of the main attractions for visitors. There are Michelin restaurants, speciality restaurants, bistro-esque restaurants, and even fast food restaurants where you can sit down for a fulfilling meal. However, if you are looking for an experience that transcends all the meals you have had in your life, you can make your way to one of the exotic islands in Doha for a meal that you will never forget.

Exotic islands in Doha are more often than not the property of a resort or a hotel chain. Placed on the far end of the financial scale, these islands attempt to provide its visitors with experiences that are more than a meal. The island itself being the property of the resort allows them to customise an experience for you from the moment you set foot on the island. While these hotels often have several restaurants that you can choose to dine in, they often have speciality dining options. For example, at Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara, it is Dining by Design. This gives you the liberty to choose where you have your meal – within a limited number of options that the resort will give you – as well as the luxury of having a personal chef for the night. This means you can tweak all the dishes to suit your palate to dot, or take it a step further and create a whole new menu for yourself that has never been tried before. Unlike a dinner at a natural island, there is a lot of manipulation of the landscape that goes into creating this experience. However, Doha does what Middle East does best in conjuring realistic landscapes and creates such a vision for the visitors that dining on an exotic island in Doha is a delightful experience that can be considered the epitome of romantic dining.
