Why Is The Pool at Sharq Village Doha So Deserted?

Blue sky, palm trees, plenty a deck chair, and a beautiful resort pool. So where is everybody? At Sharq Village, a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Doha, the answer lies in what you can’t see: the temperature.

Taken early afternoon, it was pushing 113F (45C), which felt like having a hairdryer on max in your face at all times, and meant no guest was brave enough to lounge in the scorching sun. We certainly weren’t, and headed straight to the lovely Six Senses Spa to hide out until the evening cool set in.

“Cool” being a relative term, because even in the middle of the night it didn’t drop much below 90F (30C), but the darkness did show the pool in a different light, with the star-filled sky effect adding a nice touch.

A Bed and Breakfast package at Sharq Village starts at 1395QAR ($380) a night, with a number of other offers available.
