The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain is set to unveil over US$1.5 million in property enhancements, including a revitalised marina and dock area and a new outdoor heated pool experience this January 2018.

Since the opening in 2003, the luxury resort has been committed to the upgrading of its 20-acre resort facilities year after year, with the addition of new fine dining outlets including Cantina Kahlo in October 2016 and a major redevelopment of the Royal Beach Club marina facilities in 2017.

As the only marina in the North and West coast of the island kingdom, the new marina enhancement, designed in partnership with United Marine Trading Co. (UMT), features a European design with the latest in nautical technologies, fueling facilities and life safety features. Sitting on its own private curved basin, the facility also adds ten new mooring spaces for boats, with over half the area now reserved for larger luxury boats above 13 to 27 metres in size, along with an upgraded electrical capacity and high-quality pontoons to support the overall structure.

“Our new marina facilities are a testament to our commitment to quality. However, the larger vision is how we can always improve the overall resort experience for guests and valued Royal Beach Club members who have been a part of the resort’s journey for over 20 years", said The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain director of engineering Costas Christou. “This is what makes our brand stand out from the rest and what signifies our direction as we look to the future together with our ownership International Hotels Establishment.”

Advanced life safety features include additional safety ladders, two fire hose reel cabinets and caddy units, high-pressure fire hydrants and lockable aluminum gates on each gangway. Arriving at the dock area, guests will experience a wide and extended pathway to the marina, along with smooth access bridges during low tides off the Arabian Gulf.

“Working on the Royal Beach Club marina project was an enriching experience for United Marine Trading Co. (UMT). And like with past large and mid-size marina projects across the GCC we’ve executed, this project also presented its challenges.  However, we saw this as an opportunity to truly push the boundaries and deploy creative efforts to re-design the berth spaces to add more mooring facility for the addition of larger yachts", said UMT general manager Bassam Hajj. 

Heading to the resort’s wet areas, guest will be able to experience heated temperatures as the resort swimming pools' heating systems have been updated.
