MANAMA, BAHRAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Set amidst lush gardens and overlooking the serene Manama Bay, the villas of The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain Hotel & Spa bring home the signature sophistication of The Ritz-Carlton brand, imbued with an effortless coastal vibe.
The luxury villas in Bahrain are the perfect antidote for a stressful week at work or can serve as a holiday home to enjoy quality time with the family. "For those looking for a stress-free, laid-back break, the villas offer a comfortable space with impeccable service and distinctive design. Our villas are inspired by '60s architecture, with generous South American and Mediterranean influences, but they are thoroughly modern in nature, sporting state-of-the-art amenities and features. Also, their location on the beachfront instills a sense of calm isolation whilst maintaining a connection to the hotel, restaurants, spa, allowing the guest to enjoy a complete guest experience," said Mark Neukomm, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain Hotel & Spa.
The luxury Bahrain city resort features 23 villas, each with its own swimming pool, private beach, and 24-hour lifestyle butler to provide the ultimate retreat for guests seeking total tranquility. Each villa offers living areas of generous proportions and eye-catching design; and the luxury guest rooms, though old-world in design and decor, feature state-of-the-art technology so that guests can indulge in the best of both worlds.
Each villa features three well-appointed bedrooms, a beautifully-styled living room, a spacious dining area and a fully equipped private kitchen. To tailor the lifestyle experience to each guest, the hotel also offers the private services of a butler, who can provide a sophisticated blend of local knowledge and attentive service to make each villa stay a memorable one.
The outdoor area offers a verdant pathway to the sparkling waters of the Bay, enticing guests to long, lazy swims around the resort. Equipped with al fresco amenities, the villa also offers guests the chance to enjoy an outdoor barbeque with family and friends, while being attended to by their personal butler. Guests can also indulge in a luxurious spa experience without leaving the comfort of the villa -- the spa will come to them! The enclosed outdoor area provides a naturally perfect backdrop to indulge in one of the spa's signature treatments.
Guests looking to "dine-out", can take advantage of the luxury hotel's premium restaurants, such as La Med, Primavera, Nirvana, Thai and the Gourmet Lounge. For those missing the familiar buzz of their favourite city haunt, can take a walk through the hotel's stunning landscaped gardens to the nearby Bushido and Trader Vic's to enjoy great music and great drinks. The distinct décor of the villas also makes it a great venue to hold niche events and small meetings. Equipped to cater to small-scale gatherings and executive meetings, the villa gives meetings and events organisers a distinct yet modern meeting space.
Enhancing the overall villa experience is the resort's overall offerings -- the beachfront Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain Hotel & Spa features 245 rooms and suites, each with unparalleled views of the city or sea. The Sports Club & Spa offers an extensive menu of treatments and facilities such as an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and a magnificent Turkish bath.
