You’re a Star!

Everyone wants to know what you’re up to, where you’re going, what you’re eating, who you’re seeing. Who’s to tell you aren’t a celebrity?

With the inescapable social media scene today, your life is everybody’s business. People are fascinated by how much you weigh, who you meet, what you wear and just generally like to stay aware of what you do. So why not make the most of it? Give the society reason to envy you. Woman this Month calls out your inner diva.

We spend much of our lives wanting to be someone else. It’s why we sift through glossies, it’s why we catch up on gossip, it’s why we do almost anything we do in our spare time. We look at someone and we think: I want her hair, I want her shoes and I want her car. You basically want her life, not realising you are already that person and most probably better.

We often forget to give ourselves credit for what we’re great at. We assume luxury is something set aside for another day, another life. Well, you’re wrong. Every now and then even you deserve to be treated like an A-lister and if someone isn’t spoiling you, feel free to pamper yourself.

Eat
Let’s face it; even the air of Bahrain is fattening. So numb those calorie counting genes in your system at least occasionally. Learn to enjoy the most luxurious thing under the sun — food!

Fortunately, the Kingdom is replete with fine dining outlets. You could either hit the 338 dining district in Adliya for a great meal surrounded by works of art and a dose of culture. Zoe, Café Italia, Lanterns, Meisei, Block 338 and Camelot are worth a visit.

Seef has a vast selection as well with stand-alone venues like Bushido, Trader Vic’s and Nino. Considered the ultimate destination for the cream of the crop, Moda Mall houses three noteworthy restaurants: Maki, Abd el Wahab and Bice.

Of course, we can’t forget the array of exquisite dining outlets nestled within the five-star hotels, especially the many speciality restaurants at The Gulf Hotel Bahrain, Sheraton Bahrain Hotel, Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre, Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa and InterContinental Regency. Those who have resided in the country for a while are full of praise for the brunches at The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence & Spa, Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain, Golden Tulip, Crowne Plaza and The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel & Spa.

Newer entrants into the fine dining scenario are the restaurants at The Domain Bahrain and Ramee Grand Hotel & Spa.

Live
To live the high life, you should do just that — live in it! Pack your bags and set out for a weekend of absolute luxury. You don’t even have to leave the city! It’s amazing what three carefree days can do for you. Believe it or not, ‘alone time’ is just as good a therapy. Staying away from all the hustle and bustle of work and family can actually cut out those noises in your head.

If spending time alone isn’t your cup of tea, make it a timeout with the girls! Yes, we approve of Sex and the City getaways. Remember the butlers and the views? You could have that right here in Bahrain!

Take a dip in a temperature-controlled pool with a view of the city’s skyline or revel in the blue waters of the endless sea. You could also just relax with a book in the bath and go on a full-on pamper spree with room service. There’s nothing wrong with living in a bath robe and slippers!

Take advantage of the wonderful dining options and spas within the hotels. Many of the five-star venues have separate chalets and villas if you’re looking for a more private setting.

Al Bander Hotel & Resort in Sitra, The Dragon Hotel & Resort in Amwaj and Novotel Al Dana Resort in Muharraq are three unique alternatives to the more traditional concept of hotels. They offer an exciting range of water sports and other activities. Remember, these venues provide tours as well for those of you who’d like to see Bahrain from a tourist’s perspective.

Relax
Nothing says complete relaxation like a day at the spa. Quit looking at the right side of the menu and focus on the needs of your body. If it’s a complete overhaul that you need, go for it! There’s no set rule that you are only allowed a spa ritual if you’re about to get married.

Every woman deserves to be spoilt (at least once in a while, if not always). Go ahead and get a full package that includes a body scrub, bath, massage, facial, mani-pedi and hair treatments. Top spas offer free consultations to help choose products and treatments that better suit your skin, hair and body type.

A name that remains on top of every girl’s mind, for good reason, is Dessange. It truly is the complete package with separate areas focussing on each beauty department. They’ve got experts at hand, each specialised in their particular field of work. The fitness programmes available here are quite popular with locals and expats alike.

A hidden jewel is La Fontaine Spa, which is dedicated to natural therapies, like ayurvedic massages and treatments. It is hard to believe that this unique setting is in the middle of the city. Offering a range of beauty products from Greece and a selection of rooms, they invite you to be one with nature.

The thalassotherapy complex at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa offers an array of seawater-based treatments, including hydrotherapy. They boast a number of individual rooms as well, which will be allotted to you based on the package of your choice. The two pools in close vicinity allow for a quick dip before or after your treatment.

Pure Spa at Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre helps you drift away into a world of tranquillity, while they gently ease away the stress of modern living. We can’t ignore its proximity to the biggest mall in the Kingdom.

The exclusive wellness concept at The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel & Spa promises you’ll feel rejuvenated head-to-toe after every visit.

Shop
Who couldn’t do with a wardrobe makeover? How often do you see a celebrity in the same outfit (leaving behind Mrs Beckham’s obsession for her thin black leather belt)? Of course, we’re not asking you to strut your way into bankruptcy.

We might not be able to have a closet bigger than our bedroom, but after following our fashion pages you should know that all you need to give new life to old outfits is a statement piece. Do your research, see what wardrobe essentials you’re missing and go hunting for the perfect item. Shop responsibly; even the big shots are doing it.

You need to find your personal style and stick to it. If you’re out to imitate, you’re out to buy the whole mall!

Find all the high-end brands at Moda Mall in the Diplomatic Area at the ground floor of Bahrain’s World Trade Centre. Al A’ali Shopping Complex has a fair share of top designers as well.

Bahrain City Centre and Seef Mall have been the favourite malls of the Kingdom’s shoppers since its opening. Home to a wide range of retail outlets, these shopping complexes have all that you need under a single roof, especially in respect to gadgets. Staying updated with the newest gizmos available is made easier with these malls. If you’re going all out with your spending spree, get a new ride from the all-new Maserati showroom in Moda Mall.

Speaking of which, you could visit the showrooms along the Sitra highway for your new car. You’ve got the likes of Euromotors, Bin Hindi Motors, Y K Almoayyed, Almoayyed, Haddad Motors and more welcoming you to rev up your engines.
