Your palate, your peace of mind – it’s all taken care of at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa.

Dare we say it? Life in Bahrain is slowly starting to return to normal. Schools have reopened, a major music festival just wrapped up, and we no longer gulp our morning coffee behind the steering wheel of our car. But there’s no room for complacency at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa. ICYMI: the hotel was one of the first in Bahrain to receive the new ALLSAFE certification that is vetted by Bureau Veritas. Sofitel Bahrain is part of the Accor family, a hospitality group that deemed the health and well-being of its guests and employees a top priority long before most of our conversations revolved around the pandemic.

It’s this aspect of the brand DNA that led to Accor establishing some of the most stringent operational procedures in the world of hospitality in preparation for its properties reopening around the world. These standards were developed alongside the aforementioned Bureau Veritas – a global leader in testing, inspections, and certification – under the ALLSAFE cleanliness and prevention label. What all that jargon translates to is a safe space for guests to stay and play. So with your peace of mind guaranteed, it’s time to focus on how you can make the most of cooler temperatures.
