Love and romance fill the air as Cupid comes to town at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, inviting couples, families and spa-goers on a romantic journey of culinary and spa experiences.
From overnight packages, to a limited-edition ‘Romeo & Juliet’ cake, private island dining experience, five-course menu at Cantina Kahlo, a chocolate heaven spa experience and more, it’s everything over-the-top and indulgent this month.
On February 14, a true night of romance beckons as the award-winning restaurants dim the lights for a romantic setting for two. Greeted with a rose and a warm smile, guests can choose from a five-course menu by chef Cesar De Leon Torres at Cantina Kahlo, with beverage pairings. Relish a signature Mexican affair of braised lamb, shrimp ceviche, butternut squash soup and main course of braised veal served with red mole sauce, ending with a blushing finale of strawberry and vanilla mousse postre. It is priced at BD35++ per person, from 7pm to midnight.
For candlelit dinners overlooking the sea, La Plage sets the scene for romantic dining at Seabreeze Veranda (BD190) and Private Island (BD300), where five courses excite the palate, with starters of pan-seared scallops and mains of prime tenderloin and Omani lobster ravioli, from 7pm-11.30pm. Cabana seating is also available for BD100.
Primavera and Plums also arouse the senses with four courses of savoury dishes and signature service for a perfect night of tasteful indulgence. Dinners are priced at BD38++ per person at Primavera and BD45++ per person at Plums, from 7pm-11pm. For afternoon tea lovers, Lobby Lounge celebrates love with a special ‘You Are My Cup of Tea’ menu including a mini Valentine’s cake for two. It is priced at BD21++ per person, from 3pm-7pm.
Exclusive this Valentine’s Day, guests can enchant their special loved one with a limited-edition ‘Romeo & Juliet’ Valentine’s cake, available on pre-order from February 1-7 at the Ritz Gourmet Lounge. Sealed with a kiss, the red glazed, diamond-cut, heart-shaped cake comes in its own perfectly crafted luxury box and features four heavenly layers – starting with a rich chocolate sponge cake base, followed by a crispy layer of praline and pâte feuilletée, a liquid layer of raspberry and ginger purée and French premium Valrhona dark chocolate mousse. Priced at BD50, 14 boxes of this indulgent cake will also be available on Valentine’s Day (February 14) on a first come, first served basis, including a personalised note to your Juliet or Romeo.

It is valid from February 1-28, priced at BD75.
