Accommodation at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain includes 31 Suites, 42 Club Level Rooms and 15 stunning threebedroom seafront villas with private pools, 24-hour butler service and direct beach access. Guests visiting on a long weekend or short break should opt for the spacious Club Room. Highlights include a generous space with a huge separate marble bathroom decked out in a soaking bathtub, rainforest shower, terry cloth bathrobes and comfortable slippers, luxurious Asprey brand bath amenities, an endless supply of towels, hair dryer and lighted shaving and make-up mirror, and even a 15-inch flat-screen TV in the bathroom mirror – excellent for when you’re taking a long soak in the tub after a day of exploring the resort! There’s a 42-inch LED TV with premium channels available and even a Bose iPod docking station for your personal use. Floor to ceiling windows offer views of the glittering Arabian Gulf and resort grounds. The practical design yet airy feel to the room made it very comfortable and enjoyable. You’ll easily sink into the plush feather bed for a peaceful night’s sleep; happily get up and make a tea or coffee using the in-room facilities (there’s even a Nespresso machine), and you can personalise your time using the iPod docking station, not to mention that there’s a great number of channels available and the high-speed internet throughout the hotel is fast indeed!
There’s no denying that having a few added personal touches to your hotel stay is always a welcomed effort, and the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain sure does its utmost best for Club level guests. Upon arrival, we were escorted to a personalised check-in desk on the 7th floor. Aside from this, club level guests also receive privileged access to the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge; a gorgeous and elegant space made up with stylish seating, dining tables, comfy sofas with a TV area, and, of course, a buffet station where a generous breakfast, light snacks, hors d’oeuvres and evening desserts and cordial is served, complimentary for Club Level guests. What made experiencing the Club Lounge all the more special was having attentive service and friendly welcomes from all the staff – it is definitely the people that elevated our stay
Expect exceptional luxury and relaxation at The Ritz-Carlton Spa. Not only are the treatments incredible, using world-famous Natura Bisse and ESPA products. At the heart of the spa is the lovely thalassotherapy pool with its healing properties of natural waters rich in minerals vital to wellbeing. This is the kind of place that refreshes your soul, partly accredited to wonderful therapists such as Tatsiana who was the epitome of professional. Listening to all of our concerns, she worked wonders using vigorous and gentle techniques alongside the hot stones to help tackle a dull headache that has built up as a result of tight shoulders. We fell into a relaxed slumber and left with a lighter and more rejuvenated spirit. As far as staycations go, you’re going to be well looked after at the spa!
There’s a lot to celebrate (and brag about) when it comes to dining at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain. The resort offers 12 international restaurants, lounges and bars which literally cater to every palate. Standouts include the award-winning Mexican eatery Cantina Kahlo where we savoured some of the freshest, tableside guacamole and authentic street food delights like tamales and sopes as well as the delectable churros; then there’s the famous Nirvana which is named so aptly considering the food journey here is like being in complete Nirvana – Indian delicacies made with the most aromatic flavours, the biryani and the butter chicken are both a must-try. When your Italian cravings kick in, Primavera is the place to take a seat. Everything from their Parmagiana to the tortellini, the seafood and risotto, are absolutely mouthwatering. What we weren’t prepared for, however, was the best cheesecake of our lives. No exaggeration. Get comfy at The Ritz Gourmet Lounge and order the cheesecake with a rose latte – you won’t regret it. Needless to say, food is something you absolutely don’t have to worry about during your staycation! ✤
