V-DAY Package Review: A Hearty Experience at Al Areen Palace & Spa

If you’re really looking to wow your valentine this year, how about treating them to a relaxing spa session followed by a private island dinner for two? Sounds romantic!


Just recently, Al Areen Palace & Spa invited us to experience their romantic package. There’s no shortage of things to do together on Valentine’s, but our romantic activity of choice includes some pampering at one of Bahrain’s best spas with a blissful treatment for two.


Our relaxing journey commenced with a warm cup of herbal tea to relax our tense muscles. The spa offers a wide array of therapeutic treatments from massages to body scrubs. Since we engage in a lot of strenuous activities, we selected the deep tissue massage. This kind of massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of the muscles. This technique was then followed by a relaxing one which was a very nice touch! After the massage, it felt like we had a new back!

It is worth noting that the massage therapists at Al Areen are really excellent at what they do. Each session is tailored to the guest’s requests so an exceptional experience is always ensured. We stepped into a world of respite and relaxation and we left the session completely relaxed and rejuvenated.


Next stop, the romantic dinner! Arriving at Keizo, we admired the grandiose of the exquisitely designed venue. This stunning lagoon-styled restaurant offers a relaxing atmosphere amidst its stylish architecture.

During the night, we savoured the very best of Asian fine dining as well as the creative flair of the Far Eastern flavours. The chef, Joel was exceptional – we mentioned some dietary requirements for the course and he knew exactly what we should indulge in. Keizo serves up some of the best sushi we’ve tried in a long time. The Osaka and Tuna Rolls are a must, while the Avocado Maki sets a new standard for a vegetarian choice. For those who are craving something heavier, the wok station menu will definitely work for you! The mocktails were also remarkable!

What made the night truly special was Keizo’s staff. Our servers, Apple and Rio made sure that everything was up to standard and we were looked after during this romantic evening.


The day truly felt like a getaway from the hustle bustle of the city. If you’re looking for a wonderful escape without leaving the country, then Al Areen Palace & Spa is the perfect place for you!
