A Grand Summer: Staycation Review at Wyndham Grand Manama

Bahrain heats up in the summer and we found out that the best way to cool down is at the Wyndham Grand Manama! Just recently, we had the chance to experience a sumptuous stay at this stunning hotel.


Located at the heart of Bahrain Bay, Wyndham Grand Manama is home to stunning views, breathtaking design and excellent facilities. The hotel proved to be a treat in every way, not only because of its immaculate grandeur but also because of its topnotch service.

The check-in process was very smooth – in a swift, we were already guided to our suite. We stayed at the 1-Bedroom Suite which boasts a tasteful design on top of a spacious area. All of the suites were thoughtfully designed and offer a working desk, as well as separate lounge with sofa and chairs. It even comes with a kitchenette with microwave, mini fridge and espresso machine!

What we loved the most about our suite was the floor-to-ceiling windows with magnificent views of the Bahrain Bay – we couldn’t stop admiring how picturesque everything was! Our bathroom also features a stunning backdrop which made the sophisticated space even more indulgent. The setup surely looked like it was a scene from the movie screen. Just when we thought the day couldn’t get any better, we were reminded of a spa treatment at the hotel’s Spa Suite. The Six Senses Spa is opening by Q4!

The Spa

Wyndham Grand Manama offers a state- of-the-art spa suite also known as Spa by Wyndham Grand. The spa features a variety of holistic therapies, wellness activities and experiences. During the day, we were pampered with a Body Scrub and their Esse Probiotic Facial. As usual, the Spa Manager Eden, expertly guided us throughout the whole process.

The aromatic body scrub is said to stimulate blood circulation while exfoliating and revitalizing the body. This rich mud scrub featured the earthy notes of coffee which made the session really enjoyable. After the body scrub, we experienced the Esse Probiotic Facial. This consisted of active probiotic and botanical extracts that left our skin radiant, youthful and well nourished. Our therapist, Aileen, was very thorough and made sure that each step was done perfectly.

The Six Senses Spa is yet to open soon so keep your eyes on the lookout!

The Food

For foodies like us, you will not go wrong with Wyndham Grand Manama’s in-house dining options. We had our meals at Atmosphere Restaurant which provides excellent food at all times of day. The international cuisine and Arabic favorites definitely had each of our discerning tastes satis ed. Aside from Atmosphere, guests can also indulge at The Pool Lounge and Durrah Lobby Lounge for fresh snacks and light bites.

Fitness and Recreation

Wyndham Grand Manama’s 11th floor is the hub of the summer scene with poolside fun, light snacks and play area. The hotel has two outdoor pools (one infinity adults only pool and one family pool with kids’ play area).

Believe us when we tell you that each of the hotel’s corners is Instagram-worthy! As much as we wanted to “live in the moment”, we couldn’t stop taking snaps of the infinity pool and the view from above.

side from the pools, the architectural genius features a fitness center that helps guests keep up with their fitness goals. For the traveler who’d like to stay fit, the hotel offers excellent health and fitness clubs for men and women, with a wide range of gym facilities at the 10th floor.

Taxi Boat

You don’t have to be a globetrotter to explore as the hotel offers a myriad of experiences, some of which can’t be enjoyed anywhere else in Bahrain. During our stay, we had the chance to try the famous taxi boat ride to

The Avenues Mall. Guests are offered a free VIP shuttle to the taxi boat docking area to go to The Avenues. Going to the mall has never been that fun and easy.

Nothing beats a good staycation and we’ve had the best at Wyndham Grand Manama. Overall, our stay has nothing been short of amazing. We loved the juxtaposition of a relaxing oasis and the hustle bustle of city life just within reach. There’s no way to celebrate summer than the ‘grand’ way!
