The ultimate vacation in Bahrain awaits — with the backdrop of the Arabian Gulf, families can enjoy a full range of offerings at the five-star Ritz-Carlton. Travellers booking into club rooms, suites and villas will also enjoy daily access to the elevated Ritz-Carlton Club® Level, the only VIP hotel lounge of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Greeted with a warm smile, families will arrive at the 245-room resort to experience a home-from-home atmosphere as they ascend seven storeys to the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Club® Level to be checked in by a dedicated concierge. From there the journey continues in the club’s private lounge where culinary offerings complement the memorable family vacation in an intimate setting overlooking the resort and Arabian Gulf.

Fun in the sun begins with an energising swim at the private beach or cool pools, while the children are entertained with Ritz Kids discovery activities. As night-time falls, a culinary odyssey begins where families can enjoy signature dining experiences at one of the resort’s 11 award-winning restaurants, perhaps an authentic Mexican feast at Cantina Kahlo or a taste of Italy at Primavera, before having dessert and a nightcap in the Club Lounge.

Morning starts with a delicious Club Lounge breakfast buffet, followed by a visit to see the resort’s famous Chilean pink flamingos have their breakfast at 10.30 am, before going on to an afternoon city tour of historic Bahrain.

For families who want their own private space, the resort’s seaside villas offer the perfect escape and include a round-trip private airport transfer when booking the ‘2 Together’ package. Each elegantly appointed three-bedroom villa features an infinity pool, 24-hour butler service, in-villa breakfast as well as access to the Club Lounge and Royal Beach Club fitness facilities and Turkish hammam.

With private beach access and stunning views of the Manama skyline and Arabian Gulf, the seaside villas offer families a perfect kingdom within a kingdom paradise guaranteed to generate memories to last a lifetime.
