Bahrain Confidential tries out a luxurious daycation at Al Areen Palace & Spa.
A few minutes west of the island, Al Areen Palace & Spa is a kiss of paradise – a beautiful destination tucked away from the hustle bustle of the city center. What better way to escape the scorching heat of Bahrain than lounging at the pool or a beautiful private villa at one of the most stunning resorts on the island?
Al Areen Palace & Spa flaunts its 78 uniquely designed pool villas that feature an open air heated swimming pool and jet-pool, a sprawling master bedroom, and en-suite facilities that include an oversized infinity bathtub. There are three kinds of villas that cater to different guests: Desert Pool Villa, Royal Pool Villa and the Family Pool Villa.
Just recently, we enjoyed a night at the sumptuous Desert Pool Villa. Upon arrival, we were mesmerized by the Arabian charm and sophisticated elegance of the place. A tasteful melding of traditional Middle Eastern design and stylish contemporary flair, the villas offer an ideal retreat to unwind and relax in total privacy.
The villa is surprisingly large! The astounding expanse of the space allowed us to enjoy an indulgent time of rest and relaxation. The in-villa amenities are superb – should you realize that you forgot something essential, just call the front desk and they will help you out. Since the review coincided with a birthday, our villas were showered with rose petals. A delicious cake was also waiting for the celebrant to dig into.
We’ve really got everything we needed in this sanctuary. Despite it being summer, the villas were so well designed that we didn’t feel uncomfortable in any way. The private pool is perfection on a hot sunny day in Bahrain. We spent hours on end lounging in the beautiful pool, while basking in the sun and listening to various birds chirping.
The staff has a policy of never interrupting the guests, unless needed, which was a nice touch since people value their privacy and quality time the most. True enough, the five-star hotel offers the travel connoisseur complete privacy in an alluring, peaceful haven that is rich in both spirituality and culture.
There are various villa promotions available throughout the month.
