Bahrain Santa – Three wise men saved fans

The Ritz Carlton in Bahrain has a distinctive taste, style and aroma

BAHRAIN SANTA: “Halleluiah”, the original chronicles tell of three wise men coming from the east bearing gifts! At the Ritz Carlton I met Vicky, Louise and Kate coming from Saudi Arabia bearing thoughtful gifts. The three belles toil in Aramco Oil Company all week long, but save Bahrain for La Joie de Vivre!

Ritz Carlton. We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen so we go the Sacred Credo of the Ritz Carlton commitment.

I was lucky to visit and inspect some of the Ivy League hospitality lodges around The globe. Mandarin in Kula Lumpur, the New York Waldorf Astoria and Beverly Hills Wilshire classic in Los Angeles. Movie fans regard the Wilshire Hotel as the shrine where Julia Roberts made her bones in the Pretty Woman. The Ritz Carlton in Bahrain has a distinctive taste, style and aroma.

Interesting story

I tour the property looking for fancy shots to match the Christmas spirit and aura. Gregory Laguesse, escorted me on a fantasy spin of the iconic Ritz and told me an interesting story.

An Arab Summit was scheduled to be held in Bahrain. To host kings, presidents and leaders, 23 Caribbean style bungalows were built overlooking the idyllic Manama bay. Those fabulous lodges complement the hotel capacity of 245 luxury guest rooms. The waiting list to join the state of the art health club, recreational facilities and spa is exhausting.

The Ritz is a magnet for extravagant weddings, pricey concerts and think-tank intelligentsia. The Plums eatery offers the most exclusive cuisine in the Island. I was introduced to the juicy wagyu beef exclusively imported all the way from Japan. The French Chef create sensational dishes once he gets the perfect white truffles. Truffle served with medium well wagyu seared in teriyaki sauce. He received his culinary schooling in gourmet restaurants like the Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athenee in Paris. Now he enjoys living in Bahrain since he reunited with his dog named “Bocuse”!

30 nationalities

I was invited to enjoy the Christmas jingles performed by the Ritz staff choir at the festive lobby. Crowds gathered to participate in the fun created by staff members who belong to 30 nationalities and the Bahrain Santa. In the cool breeze of the afternoon you can take a boat tour to the Bahrain Fort and museum. Visiting Bahrain Financial Harbor it will take you 10 minutes to reach a monetary lodge that houses assets of $200 billion dollars.

The King. Bahrain celebrates its National Day on 16th December. In the evening the city buildings, trees and landmarks are glittering with rainbow colors. Sparkling fireworks in the dark skies attract families, expats and visitors as well. In 2014 King Hamad Bin Essa Al-Khalifa inaugurated the Parliament, which support Bahrain quest for growth.

The Gulf States rely significantly on oil the revenues of the black gold threatened by world Conflicts. It is speculated that growth will be slow. But outbound travel will follow pattern if Bahrain Santa and wise men did not apply his magic to save lovers & seasonal fans as well!
