Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa has unveiled its new and stunning water-facing villas.

Embodying sophistication and elegance, the exquisite villas are inspired by and named for the world’s finest gems, Emerald, Ruby, Pearl and Topaz. On each visit, discerning guests will enjoy a unique and unparalleled experience, with complete privacy and exclusivity.

Boasting three luxurious bedrooms with private bathrooms, each water villa can accommodate up to six guests comfortably, making them an ideal choice for families or groups seeking an indulgent retreat. The highlight of these gorgeous properties is the spacious lounge area, offering panoramic sea views that mesmerise. Guests can also revel in the privacy of their own infinity pool with sunbeds, creating the perfect sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Designed as a distinct relative of the existing suite rooms in the main hotel, the water villas boast contemporary touches that enhance their charm. Drawing inspiration from the heritage houses in Muharraq, the main interior features pay homage to traditional Bahraini architecture, while integrating additional decorative elements inspired by cultural design archetypes, such as Islamic pattern work. The result is a seamless blend of heritage and modernity.

Architecturally, each villa showcases the distinctive colour palette of the gem it is named after, creating a unique and captivating ambience. Sofitel Bahrain has sourced the finest materials and craftsmanship from around the world. Light fittings from Turkey, hand-crafted Zellige tiles from Morocco, rugs from India and the finest fabrics from France, Italy and the United Kingdom adorn the interiors.

Each water villa comes with a dedicated personal butler, ensuring that visitors’ every need is met with impeccable service. Guests can also indulge in the exclusive in-villa dining menu, curated to tantalise taste buds with an array of delectable options. Moreover, the water villas are equipped with Balmain Paris bathroom amenities, adding yet another touch of sophistication and luxury. Mehdi Hanayen, General Manager, said: “We are excited to unveil these magnificent villas, each one a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail that Sofitel Bahrain is known for. With Emerald, Ruby, Pearl and Topaz villas, we aim to offer our guests an unforgettable stay, where they can immerse themselves in luxury and experience the true essence of our hospitality.” ✤
