The 141-room island resort, which has its own natural harbour and 800m private beach, is a 20-minute journey by ferry from Al Shyoukh Terminal in downtown Doha, or a 10-minute helicopter ride from the airport.

Facilities include a 30-berth marina and a fully equipped dive centre with a practice pool for beginners. Water sports available range from kayaking, pedalos and paddle boarding, to wakeboarding, water skiing and jet skiing. Fishing trips and luxury yacht cruises are also available, as well as a 100m lagoon pool for leisure swimming.

There is an entertainment centre on site with a nine-hole putting golf course, eight-pin bowling alley, and VIP cinema theatre, as well as tennis courts, beach volleyball, fitness centre, and Balance Wellness Centre, which offers holistic programmes for relaxation, detox, fitness and yoga.

Eight different dining options are available, with a choice of Middle Eastern, Italian and other international cuisines around the island. Specialty restaurants include an American-style diner and an organic café. The services of a personal chef and butler will also be available, and for a different culinary experience, groups can learn to make traditional Qatari cuisine in the Spice Spoons cooking class.
