... an evening night out. Not everyone turned up and I saw someone outcasted. I felt really bad for him when he struggled to find something to do to kill time. There were two cliques at the end of the table and it was really bad. Well we had a couple of laughters here and there but that was it. The good thing was that no one was staring into his/her mobile screens. ...
Well that was yesterday's story~
Today, I had my first study tour! We went to two locations, the Al Areen Wildlife Sanctuary and the Tree of life. You can google to find out more about the locations that I've been to. But for this post, I just wanna share my experience stepping foot on these places. For the sanctuary, the group was given a tour around the park in an air-conditioned minibus! That's a first for me and THANK ...

Honestly it was just a recap of what I've learnt two semesters ago. I am very familiar with the alphabets in Arabic language except the vocabulary section. I think everyone struggles with that aspect whenever you learn a new language.

Meatballs!" which is code for "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," a movie she has only ever watched on an airplane, but is now her favorite. It's the monkey. She interspersed cries of "Meatballs!" with twisting in her seat and yelling "Unbuckle seatbelt!" along with screaming at me at the top of her ...
... absolute pinnacle of speed-driven experiences appealing to both first-timers, and diehard petrolheads. Given the status of Bahrain as the location of the Middle East's very first 'nodding donkey'-style oil well, an oil museum documents the drilling of oil through the ages, and the oil fields in rural areas are a reminder of how the country's wealth was generated and made it the prosperous nation it is today.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel & Spa Manama
We have stayed many times at the Ritz Carlton Bahrain, including a few years ago when it was managed by Le Meridien. Rooms have recently been renovated and are luxurious, complete with Espresso machine, lovely big fluffy pillows - a real treat for a special occasion. Staff are very friendly and helpful - a perfect place to recharge the batteries. Looking forward to the next visit.
You won't want to come home
We stayed in one of the Villas at the Ritz having just stayed a week at the Burj al Arab in Dubai. We were a little nervous thinking that nothing could top that but how wrong could we have been. The Villas at the Ritz are without doubt the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Oodles and oodles of space, fantastic service, gourmet restaurants, idylic weather. I really can't fault the place from being driven round in a golf buggy if you don't want to walk, to the beautiful spa and even having your breakfst delivered to your Villa every morning and layed out on the exquisite marble dining table. The only thing that made me unhappy after our 10 day stay was having to go home. If you get a chance to go to Bahrain there really isn't any where better to stay.
I needed to take my family on a last minute trip to the sun and got this trip by chance - booked on the Friday to leave on the Sunday - completely last minute. About the same price as the Carribbean, but I was hoping for an improvement in quality over the usual Barbados fare, and we were not disappointed.
Just a lovely stay - from being collected at the airport till we left felt like VIP clients. Staff so friendly and amazing lagoon area - resturants are divine. Would go back any day !
Spent a week at the Ritz Carlton over New Year. Great location on the beach with private lagoon. Outside pool too cold to use but beautiful to sit around.Spa and hammam very relaxing very nice indoor pool.
Restaurants in the hotel were first class but oh sooo expensive.Beds were comfortable we all commented on this.
Seef shopping mall close to the hotel one of the best in the middle east.
Hotel staff excellent but concierge service unbeatable.
I spent all of my time in Manama within the Ritz Carlton Spa, and absolutely adored it. Their facilities are luxurious and discreet, clean and professional. I had the best facial of my life there.
I was lucky enough to stay for 6 days in this hotel and I enjoyed every last minute. It was truly relaxing from the impeccable service to the excellent facilities to the air of calm and tranquility. I have never slept in such a comfortable bed and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I stayed on the club level and our room (the whole hotel has just reopened after being refurbished) was state of the art with a beautiful bathroom which we came back one day to find a bubble bath run, scented oil burning and orchid flowers floating in the water and around the bath. It has several restaurants of different cuisines and you could never want for anything with the facilities on offer and the private beach in a cove is quiet and pretty. I had a massage at the luxurious spa, highly recommended. Its worth staying at club level because breakfast, tasty finger food and all drinks are available throughout the day included in the price. I can't wait to go back!
What a Hotel!
A great break from the business rush of the Gulf area. Only stayed one night, but, hotel staff----from the gate guard at the entrance to the property (the hotel is well protected) to the front desk personnel, and everyone else, customer service was immpeccable. A bit pricy, but, worth it. Truly relaxing. Very busy area of town (2 malls within walking distance----do not waste money on a cab). Stroll around the huge property---lots to see. Visit the $5,000/night waterfront cottages (all were empty when I visited), so, I took a look around. The hotel itself is NOT centrally located----so, if you are looking to "walk" to the souqs, pick another hotel.
The Ritz-Carlton in Bahrain delivers in every aspect of its service. From airport pick-up through to in room service, everything is done with the usual Ritz-Carlton silver service standard.
We always stay at the Meridien (now Ritz Carlton) when in Bahrain. The check-in has been a trial on a few occasions with a wait of anywhere from 20mins to and hour and a half. But in recent weeks this has improved significantly and I now can't fault this hotel. The rooms are spacious with wonderful bathrooms, luxurious beds and anything you need is just a phonecall away. The Nirvana indian restaurant is a must, followed by a few drinks in the Plantation Bar. I love this hotel!
