Shopping Malls in Doha Qatar
The Villagio mall, Doha
Located between the Hyatt Plaza and Sport City on Al Waab Street of Doha, the Villagio mall is the latest shopping mall in Doha, and is also hoped to be one of the largest malls.
The mall has an Italian theme, with cool fake sky interiors, representing the dusk in Tuscany. Each portion of the mall signifies different times of the day. There is a small canal running through the centre of the mall, complete with gondola. You can use the bridges to cross the canal, or the comfortable chairs lined on the sides to rest your feet, or even travel in the Venetian style up and down the canal by shelling out a few riyals.
The mall has several shops, including the famous brands in the UK, Italian, US and German markets. The shops are yet to be completed, but, there will be a total of 220 stores, spread across 130,000 square meters of retail space.
Few of the shops already in there, are virgin megastore – offering good music and computer selection and a wide range of books, boots with good range of boots of the same quality as available in the UK, Hallmark, NEXT, Mango, Claire’s, and Haagen Daaz . There is also the leading Carefour hypermarket, apart from other stores such as Oasis, Topman, and Topshop.
The other amenities for entertainment within the mall include a 3-D Cinema, ice-skating rink, roller coaster and a food court. There are a range of restaurants, cafes, and a superb Thai restaurant, apart from fast food joints.
On the whole, Villagio is the mall where you can do anything, from riding a little boat, to getting video games, purchasing books, shopping for clothes, shoes and much more.
