Qatar Al Mourjan Lounge
Hamad International Airport
This is possibly one of the best airports in the world in which to get delayed and still come out looking stylish. The Hamad International Airport boasts its own fitness centre, complete with a 22-metre swimming pool. There is a hydrotherapy tub, a fully equipped gym with resident fitness instructor and squash courts. Exhausted after a long flight?
The anti-jet-lag massages are designed to realign the body and restore moisture, using Balinese massage techniques. An express facial, QR230 for 25 minutes includes exfoliation and sunscreen application. Access to the pools is free with a treatment or QR130 otherwise.
The Qatar Airways Al Mourjan lounge itself is vast and serene, taking its inspiration from water and nature, with twinkling pools and acres of space. There are sleep pods, secluded relaxation areas and the showers are roomy and well stocked. Elsewhere in the airport execs on the move can have a speedy blow dry and manicure at Nails, a sparkling white sanctuary whose treatments all take less than 40 minutes.
