A Blissful Escape
Serene getaways from the bustling city and the humdrum of the normal routine, the luxury villas at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, are the ideal place to unwind, relax, and recharge. Tucked away cosily behind lush greenery and over looking the Manama Bay, each villa is designed and decorated to provide the perfect atmosphere for a tranquil and revitalising experience.
Designed by renowned French designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon, each of the 3-bedroom villas has the option of either Sea-view or Beachfront enjoy access to a secluded lagoon. 23 villas in total, they have been designed with heavy South American and Mediterranean influences. The predominant theme of the villas is the use of natural materials and contemporary items such as multi-coloured striped accent carpets from India, the curved bookshelf by designer Ron Arad and the over-sized Super Archimoon lamp by designer Phillipe Starck and bamboo fans that add an extra pizazz to the interiors, making them truly unique.
Equipped with an on-call personal butler, each of the villas also has its own personal pool, tanning beds, and Thai massage table for the guests to use at their convenience. The two bedrooms located on either side of the entrance are identical in design with a Queen-sized bed or twin-beds, Plasma T.V closet with a safety deposit box and en-suite bathrooms. The villa also has a designated business-friendly office-area with an available desktop, fax and phone for those still thinking of work even while on holiday.
The master bedroom is a vision in itself, with a quaint living-room area inside the bedroom and a King-sized bed on the opposite side; a nature-themed bathroom with a whirlpool and TV and a window that opens to the back garden and Thai massage table; rotatable television cabinet and a spacious walk-in closet.
The glass doors in the master bedroom allow in ample sunlight and access to the outdoor area and provide a breath taking view of the lagoon shared by all the surrounding villas.
The grand living room area has a generous seating area, with a kitchenette tucked away in the corner with the necessary amenities such as a Nespresso machine, microwave, and a fridge for those who wish to prepare their own light meals. The living room provides a view of the pool and the lagoon, for those who wish to enjoy their vacation indoors. For those who enjoy being out, the glass doors in the living room lead to the patio area, and directly to the beach for those in the beachfront villas. The outdoor area offers a verdant pathway to the waters of the bay. The villas offer guests the option to enjoy an outdoor barbecue with family and friends; in addition the area can easily be prepared for indoor and outdoor events. The villa gives meetings and events a distinct yet modern meeting space equipped to cater to small-scale gatherings and executive meetings.
