Wedding Anniversary in Bahrain: Part1

I've been to Bahrain thousands times , JJ did 2 , but this is our first time together , as I posted before , since I get married , my anniversary usually occurred on Ramathan , so we never planned a celebration , as a rule we delayed  the event after Ramthan and celebrated few months later .

This year, We decided to change our regular routine, so I suggested to JJ to spend a weekend in Bahrain . It was a perfect choice. El7mdelah

من عمر و انا اسافر البحرين و ج بعد ، بس هالسفرة اول سفرة لنا للبحرين مع بعض ، من تزوجت و كل سنة يصادف عيد زواجي في رمضان عشان جذي ما كانت تسمح الأجواء انه نسافر او نحتفل فيه بره الكويت ، دايما كنت اأجل و نحتفل فيه لو بعد شهور ، السنة كان الوضع مناسب و قلت حق ج شرايك نروح البحرين بالويكيند . و الصراحة كان اقتراح موفق :)

My mother is half Bahraini , so when I visited Bahrain before,  I stayed in my aunt's house , and the purpose of my visits always to attend a wedding or a social event . So for this trip, I had no idea where to stay, or what are the best hotels .

After doing some searches and asking friends, we decided on The Ritz Carlton Hotel.

كنت كل ما اروح البحرين اقعد فبيت خالتي ، انا امي نصها بحريني من صوب الام ، عشان جذي عندنا اهل هناك و كل روحاتي البحرين عشان اروح عرس او احضر مواجيبعشان جذي كنت وايد متوهقة و ما ادري وين راح اسكن ، و انا ابي كل شي يصير مضبوط عشان لا يعصب علي ج

سألت و قعدت ادور اونلاين  و اخر شي القرار كان فندق ريتز كارلتون

The hotel was not that far from the airport, the resort  was enormous, the security at the main gate made me feel comfortable   , I was kind of anxious regarding the latest incidents that happened in Bahrain, so staying in a hotel with high security level made me relived   .

الفندق ما كان بعيد وايد عن المطار ، طبعا البحرين كتوتة نتفه ، بس المكان كان واااايد كبير ، منتجع اكثر من ما اهوا فندق ، كان في تفتيش عند البوابة الرئيسية و هالشي ريحني شوي لأن شوي كنت احاتي بخصوص الأوضاع

The Hotel Lobby

I couldn’t take more pictures in the lobby because I have been told that it is not allowed

The room, was comfortable and cozy, with a great view ,  the service was excellent   , a luxurious five stars service.

The Nespresso Machine these images are special and only for expatandthecity i know how much she loves Nespresso ;)

I made my booking from booking.com, so I mentioned that we are celebrating our wedding anniversary, I didn't inform  the reception whenwe  get there or ask them for any arraignments. To my surprise, we received a lovely greeting card from the hotel management, and a hand written card from the Guest  Recognition Manger Mr. Pradeesh Kumar .

I was so excited, I know it is a simple card but that kind of gestures showed me how is it  important to the hotel management to take care of their guests and reach complete guest satisfaction . I called Mr. Paradeesh and thank him for the greeting cards .

moreover he recommended to us to dine in one of the hotel`s restaurant which I am going to talk about in my Part 2 post.
