Get Your Glow on at Ramada Manama City Centre’s Taqah Spa

Bahrain Confidential went on a spa retreat at Taqah Spa, Ramada Manama City Centre.

For many working men and women, it is hard to find the time to maintain and manage their health, skin and looks. Juggling work schedules with family commitments and personal lives often leave a person drained and unable to find time to indulge and/or relax and refresh themselves.

However, many studies have shown that a regular treat—as in a spa treatment or a massage can help relax, rejuvenate and refresh the body and spirit. Bahrain Confidential went on a spa retreat at Taqah Spa, Ramada Manama City Centre and experienced “bliss” in 45 minutes. Taqah Spa, located on the 9th Floor of Ramada Manama City Centre offers a complete menu of massages, skin treatments and exotic remedies—from hydrating facials and body wraps to a romantic couples massage. The highly trained spa technicians attend to the specific needs and concerns of all the guests.

Relax & Refresh

In need of hydration and relaxation, our team carefully selected the Exotic Glow Body Scrub—a 45-minute rejuvenating treatment consisting of a scrub followed by a massage. The Exotic Glow Body Scrub is an exotic exfoliation ritual used to invigorate and revitalize the body after which a massage is meant to soothe and relax. We were led through this spa treatment by the lovely Miao.


First, a beautiful rainfall shower opens up the pores. Then we were taken to the hammam where we relaxed under the hot steam (the hot steam will allow for better exfoliation of the skin, and is also known as a detoxifier—so much so that sauna baths are a common practice in places such as Finland, Georgia and other Eastern European countries).

Pure Bliss

After the sauna, an aromatic scrub was rubbed on our bodies and Miao gently worked on exfoliating our dry and tired skins. Next up was a relaxing massage complete with soft and soothing music. Miao used an exotic island flower body lotion—a signature at Taqah Spa. She paused for a moment before applying it and we could sense that she uttered a prayer of wellness for us. Moments lapsed in the pure bliss of relaxation.


After the massage, we took a few moments to enjoy some green tea and take in the wonderful ocean view. It has been a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience and we will regularly be visiting Maio and Taqah Spa for all our relaxation needs.
