974 Cruises Qatar has launched a unique houseboat experience at Old Doha Port Marina, Box Park.
As the name houseboat suggests, this is a boat in the shape of a modern picturesque house and is also called ‘floating home’. “The houseboats offer you ultimate comfort, luxury and the privacy of your own home while you are sailing on a boat. “This concept is quite popular in some other countries and has been added to Qatar as well now,” the company said in a press statement.
With the upcoming FIFA World Cup and other major events, the houseboats are among the new and exclusive attractions that Qatar has to offer for its residents and visitors to explore, the statement notes.
974 Cruises has launched two houseboats – La Mer and Casa del Mar. “So, it is time to pack your bags and live life on the water with stylish décor, luxurious interiors and experience the comfort of your home on the sea. The guests may sail or anchor in the serenity of water while enjoying fully equipped home modern amenities on the boat,” the company said.
The facilities on-board include air-conditioning, queen-size bed, living room, kitchenette, ensuite bath, smart TV, music system, front balcony, open air deck and relaxing chairs.
“Pamper yourself on one of the best luxury houseboats, bask in the warm sun during the day or enjoy the moon and stars at night from the middle of the pristine waters of the sea, outlining the heart of Doha city. Spend quality time with your family, friends, loved ones, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy the fascinating views of the Corniche promenade and azure sea around Doha. Choose to stay overnight on the ‘floating home’, and create your own exclusive, personal travel experience,” the statement adds. Guests may reserve the entire houseboat on a private basis for solo, couple, family or small group.
The upper deck on the houseboat will treat guests to “truly breathtaking, splendid” views of the Corniche promenade, overlooking the serene waterfront, especially in the evenings when the lights accentuate the entire city view. One can click Instagram-worthy pictures with the panoramic vistas of iconic, inspiring architecture, cultural attractions and touristic landmarks of Doha, such as the National Museum of Qatar, Museum of Islamic Art, Box Park, 974 Stadium, Sheraton Doha, Doha Port, Grand Cruise Terminal and the West Bay skyline.
