Mandarin Oriental, Doha Marks World Bee Day with Malika Honey Showcase and Educational Collaboration

Renowned for its steadfast dedication to sustainable practices, Mandarin Oriental, Doha proudly celebrates World Bee Day on May 20. From educational workshops to specialty spa treatments, room amenities and delicacies, the hotel will be humming with activity as part of the Group’s commitment to promoting biodiversity conservation and ecological awareness.

Mandarin Oriental, Doha, for the past 4 years, has managed 15 active beehives across Qatar in collaboration with Bu Saif’s Apiary, harvesting its own natural Malika Honey. Named after the Arabic word for ‘Queen,’ Malika Honey is derived from the nectar of the fragrant blooms of the indigenous Sidr tree. This initiative not only underscores Mandarin Oriental’s commitment to environmental stewardship, but also enriches guests’ culinary experience. Malika Honey's unique flavours can be sampled in sweet treats such as the Malika Honey Cake from The Mandarin Cake Shop and the Lavender Honey Peach Sorbet from Gelato.

Expanding on its ongoing beekeeping initiative, the hotel now warmly invites students from Qatar Academy Msheireb to participate in educational sessions at Gelato. Guided by the hotel’s culinary team, students will discover the crucial role bees play in biodiversity and learn about sustainable practices in honey production on the occasion of World Bee Day.
