Bait al Bahr
Overlooking the beach betweenAl Waha
and Al Bandar, this restaurant is an ideal
venue to enjoy the viewwhilst sampling
a range of fresh seafood dishes. We dined
on themost delicious items with favour-
ite fishes. Wewaddled out, but every
mouthful was incredible.
I found it a little hard towake up early in themorning after the full night that we had had, but I summoned all of my strengthwhen
I heard the little alarmclock goes off. After I got prepared for the day, I went in to the lobby tomeet rest of the teammembers. Once
everyone had gathered in the lobby, we all got into the van and proceeded to the city’smost popular places, such as GrandMosque,
Bait al Zubair Museum, andMattrah Souq. The day endedwith an amazing two hours sunset cruisewithOcean Blue. Everything is
over and it was time to pack and check out —much tomy and rest of teammembers’ chagrin. Wewere back in Doha beforemidnight
and totally relaxed thanks to a serene getaway. I can’t wait to return soon — it was a perfect tropical retreat at Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah
