Banyan Tree Terminates Bahrain Resort With Immediate Effect


Now this came as a shocker, I wasn’t expecting the Banyan Tree Bahrain to be shutdown. From this letter it looks like that they really are serious about terminating the contract. I’m not sure what was breached in the contract or what violations led to this but I’m curious about it. This is very sad since we stayed in this hotel twice for GulfRun 4 and GulfRun 5, perfectly close to the track and very good service in that environment. Now looks like Banyan Tree is taking legal action against Al Areen for their breach of contract and actions, click the image above for the full letter that was sent out.

Thanks F for the email

Bahrain – Eats

After spending a week in Bahrain we had a chance to try a few different places and I’m surprised how much the food tastes good in Bahrain. I love the Adliyah area, so many restaurants to choose from, easy to walk around, they even made it nicer for walking and they opened up an Art Gallery. We had an area like that previously but it has long been destroyed by the First Ring Road project, but thats something else. Sometimes you feel like something good and some times you want fast food, so we had to try Dairy Queen and Jasmys, but DQ is better especially the ice cream. Out of the nice restaurants these are the ones we tried and were very good

Restaurants of Choice:

  • Memories of China – Probably the best Chinese restaurant in the Middle East
  • Cafe Italia – Really good Italian food and I love the interior of the restaurant even though they are a bit slow
  • Meat Company – Can’t go wrong with a good steak
