A PEARL OF LUXURY AND EPICUREAN DELIGHTS ON THE ARABIAN GULF ALLOW THE RITZ-CARLTON SPA AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, BAHRAIN TO SHOWCASE ITSELF IN ALL OF ITS RELAXING GLORY.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain is a sanctuary within the bustling metropolis of Bahrain. With the promise of calm and quiet at the forefront of their philosophy, visitors to The Ritz-Carlton Spa should prepare to be refreshed, revived, rejuvenated and ready to take on any challenge that comes your way. The sense of serenity is apparent from the moment that you enter the open plan reception area. Earthy tones and decadent fixtures ease away any tension immediately. Luxuriant products and the smooth, clean lines of the décor set the tone for your experience.
Throughout the process, from the initial contact on arrival at The Ritz-Carlton Spa a lot of emphasis was placed upon yourself as an individual and my hopes and expectations for my time here manifested themselves in an unobtrusive manner as we completed our consultation with our therapists. Before we had even begun to enjoy the spa experience itself I felt nurtured and important. The term ‘clients’ is too impersonal and sterile for those visiting, therefore, I will use the term ‘guests’ as this hints at the level of care afforded to everyone. As guests we were welcomed with ginger tea upon arrival as it is renowned for its ability to improve digestion, reduce pain, eliminate inflammation, relax the body and mind, aid in weight loss and boost the immune system. As you can imagine we began to feel better immediately!
My husband and I were welcomed warmly and shown to our private couple’s room. This title simply doesn’t suffice. The voluminously fluffy robes and pillow-like slippers are incredible and amplify the sensory experience, which isn’t hard to envisage since I was standing in an illustrious spa renowned for its standard of excellence. As we ventured into our treatment room we were met with a beautifully decorated zone as we were met by soothing sounds and muted lighting. It epitomises the desire to induce calm and relaxation within every inch of this tranquil oasis.

This Relaxation Massage employed techniques of skin rolling and long, firm sliding movements followed by strong palm pressure that stimulates blood flow deep within the muscle tissues. I spoke with my masseuse, prior to the massage and requested quite intense pressure as I felt that I was heavily knotted from the stresses of being a social butterfly. She obliged dutifully, employing the signature lavender oil with its soothing, antioxidant qualities to kneed my muscles and manipulate my joints spectacularly. The headed treatment bed cocooned by body to ensure I was as snug as one can be. I have never left a treatment room feeling so energised and feeling the skeletal benefits of the massage immediately – I can wholeheartedly say that this was the most beneficial massage that I have ever experienced showcasing immediate results. This was strikingly different from the usual sense of disappointment that you can feel immediately after some other establishments. The right combination of sleep inducing motions allowed for the ultimate in full body massages. Our ensuite facilities afforded us the opportunity to freshen up following our treatments and actually proved a thankful commodity during the visit as we were able to leave looking just as groomed as when I arrived without worrying about our appearance.
The vast array of treatments available at The Ritz-Carlton Spa can be tailored to meet individual needs and special requirements and with the added benefit of using their signature thalassotherapy pool, why would you go elsewhere? The extensive amount of attention-to-detail ensures that visitors from a variety of walks of life will find a wide selection of treatments with which to pamper themselves – the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day.
