Manama, November 25, 2007
Banyan Tree Desert Spa and Resort, Al Areen, has been named in the Top 10 Desert Resort Worldwide annual list by the Italian high-profile Resorts Web Magazine.
The property was selected based on evaluations of the top 100 resorts. The factors and criteria used to compile the list include natural setting, design, service, cuisine, space, silence, view and villa furnishing, said an official spokesman.
Particular attention is placed on health: hypo-caloric foods on the menu, spaces for sports activities and the spa.
In addition, Resorts Web Magazine ranked Banyan Tree Desert Spa and Resort, Al Areen 31st in the World’s Top 100 Resorts 2007 list. There are only seven resorts in the Middle East region included in the list and Banyan Tree Al Areen is the only listed resort in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Resorts are chosen world-wide for their pleasant setting, originality of the architecture, attentive and discreet service, health and well-being facilities. This recognition confirms the position of Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts as the leading luxury operator as all Banyan Tree resorts have been named in the World’s Top 100 list.
Banyan Tree Al Areen opened its doors in April 2007 boasting the only-all-villa, private swimming pool and jet-pool resort in the Middle East, the world’s most extensive and luxurious spa and hydrothermal garden, three international restaurants, a complete body wellness centre and the award-winning Banyan Tree Gallery.
In August 2007 the resort’s Royal Pool Villas have been awarded the prestigious “World’s 101 Most Exquisite Hotel Suites & Villas” by the famous luxury travel and lifestyle magazine, Elite Traveler (US). – TradeArabia News Service
