Al Maha Doha Hamad International Airport Review

I love Doha’s relatively new Hamad International Airport. It is leaps and bounds ahead of its old airport and is one of my favourite airports in the world. It has some interesting art, great lounges and some cool architecture. But perhaps what I loved most about it was its efficient E-gate system – a virtually  instantaneous entry and exit system for residents. So when Baby E arrived, and E-gate was no longer an option for us there was a part of me that felt sad but also nervous. There are many peak travel times in Doha, i.e. Eid. I couldn’t face long queues at security and customs when entering and leaving the country so when I found out about  Al Maha Doha Meet and Greet service for both Arrivals and Departures I couldn’t wait to try it out.

We arrived at the Grand Hyatt at 10pm for the opening of Suhour at their Ramadan tent. We found it to be the perfect place to enjoy this special part of Qatar’s Islamic culture. Here’s why:
