Ezdan Hotels – Made in Qatar

 

Home Grown, Local – this is something I have been wanting to write about, and work on for the longest time. Even better when you are on a staycation at a home grown hotel!

My reviews or what I share on my blog isn’t a yes-this-is-the-best place to be. It is more about finding happiness where I am, and why I feel an experience was special. That’s why when I got invited to stay at Ezdan, I didn’t know what to expect.

When you don’t know what to expect, I look for that reason to why or how a memory would become special. To me while at Ezdan, the attention to small things – a message of ‘We care’ was embedded everywhere- in the simplicity of the room. A traditional looking restaurant. A waitress eager to give you a happy meal. A bouquet of flowers. A platter of fruits!

This staycation was more a getaway for me to beat the heat. So, I just stayed indoors most of the time, did some art work, learnt some photography skills, and worked on myself.

For those who are curious, what activites the Ezdan Hotel offers? The 4th floor in the towers leads out to an open space which comprises the swimming pool – an Olympic sized one that too, little parks here, and there, lots of dining options, game centres, basketball court, and many others which I didn’t really explore because of the heat.

They have a fitness centre, as well as a beauty salon, and massage centre. Their massages are so good, and the prices are such a bargain. I would totally recommend trying the massage there. The settings are simple, the service quite normal, nothing too out of the way, but, the massage itself was amazing. And, that is about what you would want when you pay for a massage.

We had breakfast at Al Thouraya restaurant during our stay. The buffet had great options – a mix of Arabic and continental breakfast. There was a live egg station in terms of a live station. And yes I had the most amazing cinnamon rolls ever while I was here at the hotel.. I normally hesitate trying a lot of bakery, and pastry items during breakfast. It was the suggestion of one of the waiters at the restaurant that I try the cinnamon rolls. I did on the day I was leaving, and regretted the fact that I didn’t try it on the previous day while we were there. You might wonder why I am mentioning about these in my staycation review? Well, it was that good that I wouldn’t want anyone else miss trying it whether you are going for a staycation or for breakfast alone.

We had a really nice, and calm time. I did not go to the pools because I only go to ladies only. So, for me staying away from the heat was just being in my room.

The hotel is centrally located in West Bay. There are cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants downstairs. If you are a guest of the Hotel, then they allot you a parking area as well.

There were so many elements that made it obvious that this was a homegrown brand. The number of paintings that showed Doha was countless. Though I did not get to take any clicks of them, so you might as well go check them out.

One thing that particularly stood out for me was the abundant supply of water in our room. In this scorching heat, and humidity, water is everything. The fact that attention was paid to place ample amount of drinking water than normal was outstanding, and one worth mentioning.

I would still ask you to try staying in this place because it is worth it to support local brands in Qatar. It offers great views, and the simple things in life. And, sometimes it’s really the simple things in life that makes a lot of difference, and gives us memories to take back home.

Have you been to Ezdan Hotels before? What was your experience like?

Nothing in life comes easy. Happiness comes from within. Everyone has their own opinion on what success is.
It is upto you to decide and work for the success you believe in honestly, and kindly. I always believe in the fact that if you put your heart and soul in paving your way, pulling up as many people as you can along the way, you will find yourself in a place you are content with, and surrounded by the right people.
It will happen but it will take time.
PERSEVERANCE & KINDNESS is key πŸ—πŸ—πŸ—

MY VEIL STORY
They told me " I didnt have to wear the veil there. My husband wasn't around." I listened. I smiled. I didnt say anything back.
Little did they know that my husband had nothing to do with my veil.
It was my choice and I Didn't do it for him. What if my husband wasn't there?My religion to me is submission to God. He is all-seeing, all-hearing!I hear a lot of assumptions often and here's what I feel about it. Unless you are in their shoes, and you know every detail of their life, You dont have the right to assume. And, even if you do, please keep it to yourself, so that people are less hurt because of the assumptions you make.
Being fashionably nice is not in looks alone, it is in trying to hurt  as less possible around you with your words. Words once spoken that you cant take back!
Your choice of words are everything! It determines your style, class and elegance more than anything

Its easy to forget the beautiful memories we have like a beautiful sunrise.
Social Media makes it easy to whine and complain about things we dont have.
Perhaps if we remind ourselves more of the beautiful memories we have everyday, its going to be easier to be content with everything we have and get to experience in our life everyday!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar
