Looking for hotel indoor swimming pools in Doha? Here’s a list for you!

Summer is usually synonymous with beaches. But I can’t say the same for Qatar. With the heat steadily rising every day during the summer season, it is not advisable to spend the day out under the scorching heat of the sun. And that’s where swimming pools come in.

You can play all day in the water under the safety of a cover to protect you from harmful UV rays. Here are the best hotel indoor swimming pools in Doha, Qatar to bring yourself, friends, and family for a summer day out!
