Having visited Bahrain nearly 20 years ago it was refreshing to see a brand new hotel which was so luxurious.

Had drinks and tapas at the bar on the jetty on the 14th August, 2013. The service, wine and tapas were excellent and not to mention the excellent setting. Very international team who are very well trained.

Trees and green make comfortable the staying in the very hot weather

Went here to get away from it all - while the hotel was very busy and it was a peak vacation period I was welcomed as if I was the only guest. The spa - facials, massages and body scrubs really helped me de-stress - A big thank you to Khalil the Chief Concierge who helped me sightsee and shop until I drop in Bahrain - the staff are welcoming and make you feel special - This was the second of visits and even without me giving my name the host in the lobby recognized me and welcomed me back - the tea provided while I was waiting to check in was very welcome. - the rooms were clean and sumptuous - loved every minute of my visits - try the Italian restaurant - does the best Italian outside Melbourne Australia and way better than what I tried in Italy -

When I arrived, my room was not ready, but the lounge manager at the club level was so kind and she made my stay very pleasant by offering the best service possible and talking to me. I forgot her name, but she is from Bulgaria. I hope could reward her for the excellent work she had done.
