Yes, it's true Doha is fast emerging as the newest destination for Indian weddings due to workable distance, about three and half hours from the capital with no visa charges. That's one of the many important  ticks that can be marked right if you are thinking of a destination wedding. It's also one of the safest country. The rapidly growing country keeps its heritage, art and culture well preserved thus making it a pleasure to visit the many new upcoming attractions including the recently opened National Museum of Qatar, an architectural marvel shaped liked a desert rose. The many hotels there can accommodate large wedding groups who look for luxury and well manicured gardens and resorts. The beaches make it even more attractive. Qatar is now more than ready  to welcome the Indian wedding market with open arms with more luxury five star hotels on the anvil and roads being built.

On our recent trip to Doha, with an invitation by the Qatar National Tourism Council, WeddingFables personally witnessed  the amazing infrastructure that Qatar had, apt for Indian weddings. We were hosted by the magnificent St Regis, Doha,  that is modern and beautiful yet steeped in Eastern mystique which begins from the lobby itself with its huge jali chandeliers, flower sculptures and vast spaces. With 336 swish rooms each coming with their own butler service and a lavish grand ballroom spread over 1,850-square meters, it makes for a perfect wedding destination.  The hotel also makes sure that dining is a stunning experience with Hakkasan the Chinese restaurant, Opal by Gordon Ramsay, Al-Sultan Brahim and the buzzing Vintage Bar presents a selection of signature and classic cocktails, as well as premier wines and spirits.

While St Regis is a beauty that offers many inventories suitable to an Indian wedding, The Ritz Carlton, Doha was one of the first hotels to host an Indian wedding from Gujarat. Since then Doha has seen a spate of Indian weddings and are gearing up for more as Indians eye the spanking new hotels, the hassle free services, best international cuisines and celebrity chef restaurants.

The Mondrian, Doha shaped like an eagle's nest with the beak of an eagle protruding is another architectural stunner that makes weddings fun and a thing to remember. The lobby takes inspiration from Alice in wonderland and is an amazing place for insta clicks, but what is more interesting is the huge 2000 sq ft. ball room with a lift covered in 24 k gold that connects straight to the beautiful bridal suite. Almost all hotels have Indian chefs, that helps Indian weddings with curating the right Indian dishes.

All these and many other aspects such as no visa hassles, safety, excellent services and the upcoming infrastructures make Doha an interesting wedding destination especially during the winters when the weather is beautiful.
