As I found out from the guard, Villa 1 is where the owner stays and during our stay, he was there with his family. So the map only shows Villa 2-15 clockwise, where our Villa 9 is the with the red dot.

Exploring the Area

Public beach

Katara Cultural Village


I´ve always been a fan of LXR properties so as soon as our trip to Doha was confirmed, I did not hesitate but book a night at the Katara Hills Doha. For a 1-night stay, we used 120,000 points which I thought was very reasonable as discounted cash rates were like 900 USD per night. A villa with a private pool: this has got to be one of the best hotels we have stayed at. And as we expected, they had Bulgari toiletries, Bose speakers, Samsung smart TV, blue tooth speaker by Bang & Olufsen, ice maker, Nespresso machine and more. Sadly, we were not able to enjoy breakfast at the breakfast restaurant as it was Ramadan. Of course, the location is great as it is steps away from the Katara Cultural Village. Overall, it was one of the most memorable Hilton stays we´ve had and would highly recommend especially if you have lots of Hilton points to use 👍
