The Pearl, this man-made island in West Bay Lagoon, offers a shopping experience like no other in Doha. In true Arabian Riviera fashion, the place has luxury apartments, town homes, penthouses, three marinas, five star hotels, and two million square feet of international retail, restaurants, and entertainment. It’s not for the shopper on-a-budget. From the sops along its beautiful promenades you can buy a Ferrari or a Maserati, try on a glamorous ball gown, admire the exclusive garments for women hand-picked from the boutiques of Paris and Milan, browse some designer furniture at home accessories at Art de la table, Hermès/Puiforcat/St. Louis, or Ralph Lauren Home, get a chic shirt at Agent Provocateur, Alberta Ferretti, Blumarine, Dados Boutique, Chloé, Galliano, Giuseppe Zanotti Design, Impression, Kenzo, Stella McCartney, The Vanity Room, Toujouri, or Vera Wang. The Pearl has it all: Men’s and women’s fashion, furniture and home decorations, jewelry and accessories, perfumes, and a flurry of service shops. So whether you are in the mood for a red Ferrari and just want to have an ice cream on the promenade overlooking the yatch marina, The Pearl is a great, but expensive, shopping destination.
