Guest reviews for Banana Island Resort Doha By Anantara

5 out of 5
Amazing island, friendly staff and lots to do. Downside, accessible only by boat which takes approx 25 minutes. If you are travelling around Doha city add another 30 minutes for travel meaning it will take atleast 1 hour to arrive back to your room. If you dont get stuck in traffic and miss your boat that is. Oh and a plus note they provide unlimited free laundry for children under 2 years
