Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa – The Perfect Beach Picnic

Events & Experiences, Hotel, Travel and Food

Took advantage of the warm and sunny weather this weekend, and opted for a picturesque and secluded picnic at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa sea & spa. Here’s the details as promised, everything you need to know about our delightfully simple, pre-arranged picnic.

Amazed at the beauty of this place

You can enjoy a grand ‪Saturday lunch‬ outing between 12:30-4 PM on the lush lawns with your loved ones until Ramadan.

The Location

The hotel is far from the main city but it is all worth it! Located on the immaculate beaches of Zallaq overlooking the Arabian Gulf on the west coast of Bahrain, this 5-star luxury hotel in Bahrain boasts the only Thalassa Sea and Spa in the GCC countries.

After getting recommended by a friend about the Pique-nique, I decided to celebrate my husband’s birthday under the blue skies of Sofitel Bahrain. As Ramadan was starting soon, I was waitlisted at first, but someone canceled on at the last minute and I got lucky.

This is my happy place. The most beautiful picnic spot

The Set Up

Opt for a patch of lush green grass next to the pool area, or on the sandy shores of the private beach. The choice is yours!

After selecting the ideal spot, all that’s left for you to do is slowly make your way to the picnic site of your choice, admiring the tranquil beauty of the estate on your way. The staff at Saraya Restaurant in Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa sea & spa will pre-pack your picnic basket, set up your blanket and lay everything out in anticipation of your arrival.

 The Basket

The picnic basket arranged by Saraya Restaurant features a variety of mouth-watering delicacies. Our basket included regular favourites – sandwiches, starters, fresh fruits, water, dessert, sweets, and much more. We carried a bottle of wine for the celebration. I also got a double chocolate cake from Macaron Pastries, located on the lobby level of the hotel. 

Price of Picnic for 2: BD20

Cost for picnic hamper is 10BD per head with children 6-12 half price , and below 6 free (INCLUDING) beach access!

About the Hotel

At Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa, Arabian interior design and a luxurious color palette combine with elegant dark hardwoods, creating an inviting contemporary oasis.

The hotel is reminiscent of a precious shell beside the cerulean ocean, curving gently around the white sand bay. You can trace the footsteps of renowned French jeweller Jacques Cartier, who came to this enchanting island in search of the finest pearls.

Glide across the polished marble floors of the lobby and feel your eyes being drawn to the alluring potted palms and exquisite Dilmun artworks. Enjoy a taste of their dual heritage with a complimentary Arabic coffee or a French macaron from our patisserie.

Award-winning La Mer presents exceptional seafood in a sumptuous French style. Choose from the day’s catch and watch the talented chefs meticulously prepare your meal, before you step onto the jetty to dine amidst breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.

Special shout-out to @anismouldi, Anais and Mohamed, the extra effort you put in was really appreciated.

Holi in Bahrain – Dipped in hues of Love and Color

Events & Experiences, Lifestyle, Travel and Food

Nobody apprehends the importance of celebrating festivals than the Indians settled abroad away from their country and cultural roots. I had it marked on my calendar since the beginning of February.

Celebrating Holi, (the Hindu festival of mischief, love, affection, and color) was on my list of goals for the blog alongside shifting apartment and raising a 14-month-old. We got to welcome spring (and diversity) with warm-loving arms, during this Holi in Bahrain on March 2nd 2018.

A day full of fun for all, was organised extremely well at Novotel Bahrain Al Dana Resort. Wolfpackeventsbh, IGMH – Indian Gulf Media House, KTK Events, Desi Nights Bahrain and Bollywood Glitz have done an excellent job of organising a wonderful, successful event this season. The vibrant lineup included live dhols to rain dance, best of mind-boggling DJs from all genres, 6 hours of non-stop music, unlimited organic colours, kids play area, live food counter,  and more. Food Attractions included: Indian BBQ, Pani Poori, Shawarma, Momos, Chaat, Cupcakes & many more.

A big crowd of citizens and residents of the Kingdom came together to celebrate one of India’s iconic festivals. Everyone seemed to love the spirit of fun and enjoyment and dived into the barrel of colors to play Holi.

Guests were given organic colored powder to toss around the beach to celebrate the season in style with food, cocktails and beats at this party.
