Your first impression of Bahrain will be that it’s different from neighbours Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Quieter and more rustic, the country is attracting a new generation of travellers who are looking towards its luxury hotels, happening restaurants and bars, and vibrant lifestyle. If you just got married and are looking for a destination to go honeymooning at, here are top 3 reasons, you should check out Bahrain.
Luxury Hotels That Are a Class Apart
ART Rotana, located on the man-made Amwaj Islands, gives the impression of a gallery with its artistic architecture, installations and artworks in the lobby, and in-house workshops. Lounge by the private beach, savour Italian dishes on the terrace of Rosso restaurant, have spa treatments together, and explore the islands that have water sports, outdoor activities, and a bird kingdom.

In the desert landscape of Bahrain, imagine sitting in a Japanese fine diner and enjoying delectable cuisine from the Far East or digging into some sumptuous French cuisine. Dine like a Samurai at Bushido, one of Bahrain’s favourite Japanese restaurants which is built around the Samurai theme with dim lights and vintage Japanese artefacts. Another great dining option is the complex of entertainment at Gallery 21, which has a bar, a French bistro, a café, and an art gallery.
The Bahrain International Circuit hosts the annual Bahrain Grand Prix, but it’s worth a visit even during the off-season. Take a tour of the circuit or have a high-speed chase with your partner on the tracks—it’s a great venue to propose too. You can also go on a safari in the Al Areen Green Wildlife Park and Reserve and meet the Arabian gazelle, oryx, leopard, and ostrich. For some fun, head to Gravity and float in the air.
