Villaggio is an experience â€“ a place of shopping, entertainment and social interaction, where the dÃ©cor transports you to a world unlike your own, and where an unrivalled mix of shops, restaurants and recreation lets you discover something new with every visit. Villaggio Mall has transformed the face of shopping in Doha and continues to exceed the expectations of visitors with its ongoing expansion of the consumer experience, attention to detail and the pursuit of entertainment excellence. Originally the brainchild of is His Highness Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad as a walk in sports concept the idea evolved into a fully integrated shopping complex. Developers aimed for something unique in the retail market to distinguish the venue from all competitors locally and regionally with a water feature as the focal point. From this, Villaggio Mall was conceived and born. Villaggio was officially declared open in 2006 and the most recent addition, the Gondolania theme park, was formally unveiled this year. With a five star hotel and the the Villaggio Plaza in development, the incredible Villaggio journey continue.
