Gym review: Dana Club
Combining traditional hospitality with modern luxury
The Dana Club is a large family club, housed within a traditional style building, reflecting the culture of Doha. It has two fantastic, modern and well-equipped gyms, offering both ladies-only and mixed options. Dana Club also has two large swimming pools (both indoor and outdoor) with ladies-only swimming at the indoor pool, three days per week.
If you happen to be a tennis fan, a membership will also give you access to two beautiful indoor tennis courts. The added attraction of outdoor football, basketball and volleyball courts is a real bonus for families looking for activities for everyone.
In addition, the club offers a casual restaurant by the pool as well as more formal dining in other restaurants. The club has many other facilities including member’s lounges, snooker room, kids lounge and activity room, Internet café and much more.
