Villaggio Mall is the latest shopping mall in Doha. It is located in the west end of Doha and is one of the largest malls in the Middle East catering 42,000 daily visitors and 1.5million foot traffic monthly.
Villaggio mall, with its exquisite architecture, is one of the most sought after destinations in Qatar offering an exciting range of shopping and luxury brands, food and dining, and entertainment options. Villaggio showcases Doha’s extravagance for architecture through an epitome of a typical Italian village transporting its visitors to its charismatic environment by the sea.
Villaggio officially opened in 2006 as a product of His Highness Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad’s concept of a walk-in sports location that evolved into an integrated shopping complex. It is one of the most desired destinations in Qatar having 120,000 sqm. It is a home for luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Christian Dior, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana.
One of the most distinctive features of this location is the indoor canal running through the center of the mall. Visitors can board gondolas (iconic symbol of an Italian village culture) to weave their way through the mall with views of the remarkable spots of Villaggio Shopping Mall. Villaggio also has an artificial sky that can be enjoyed through the bridges crossing the canals and chairs lined up along the walkways.
Visitors can do a wide range of activities in Villaggio as it has a huge range of food and dining, shopping options, olympic-sized skating rink, 13 luxury cinemas, and the only IMAX screen in Qatar.
