The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, has introduced the Luxury Spa Escape package for residents of the Eastern Province (Dammam, Alkhobar and Dhahran).
A getaway package crafted for ladies that combines the glamour of being chauffeured in the Rolls-Royce Ghost II to and from the Ritz-Carlton Spa, a wellness and relaxation indulging experience.
In alignment with the promise of the Ritz-Carlton brand, the Luxury Spa Escape package has been purposely developed to fulfill the unexpressed wishes and needs of the guests by offering an innovative leisure trip to Bahrain that live up to particular lifestyle preferences.
This extraordinary spa experience begins with the highly skilled therapists of the Ritz-Carlton Spa, in a private sanctuary where guests are fully immersed in the total tranquility of 105 minutes of massage and facial treatments, using international skincare products for luxurious treatments that revitalize the spirit and refresh the soul.
The escape continues with a healthy lunch in the Hotel’s La Med restaurant for wide-ranging buffet highlighting Arabian and Mediterranean cuisine. The restaurant features a terrace offering views of the swimming pool and gardens inviting to a relaxing al fresco dining. After the culinary journey, the ladies will have access to all the resort facilities, including the indoor and outdoor pool, gym and the magical 600 meters of secluded white sandy beach perfect for a walk with a sunset view.

Top CEO Conference & Awards wraps up in Bahrain

The Top CEO Conference & Awards 2019, organized by TRENDS magazine — Mediaquest and international business school INSEAD, has concluded at the Al-Areen Palace and Spa in Bahrain. The event, held on Thursday, included seven key panel discussions under the theme “Growth in a Volatile Future” as well as the Top CEO Awards 2019 ceremony, which recognized the region’s most successful and trendsetting CEOs from more than 700 companies listed on GCC stock exchanges.

Top business leaders and more than 30 speakers from across the GCC shed light on the Middle East’s dynamic but volatile region and the burning issues facing the corporate world today. This year’s theme focused on a score of relevant issues, such as oil price fluctuations, tech disruptions, armed and political schisms that pose new risks, and opportunities. Speakers such as renowned economist Professor Nouriel Roubini provided growth solutions and road maps for businesses in the GCC region.

Alexandre Hawari, CEO of Mediaquest, said: “In its fifth edition, the Top CEO Conference & Awards fully encapsulated the theme of ‘Growth in a Volatile Future’ by acknowledging and exploring the growth transformation that the region is undergoing through digitalization and the fourth industrial revolution amid geopolitical tensions, looming trade wars and a rapidly evolving business environment. Building on the huge success of the previous years, the Top CEO Awards 2019 recognized CEOs and companies who have raised the bar by navigating challenges, implementing new strategies, and have demonstrated unquestionable growth, profitability and excellence in corporate governance.”

The conference kicked off with an opening keynote from Jassim Al-Seddiqi, CEO of the Abu Dhabi Financial Group and chairman of GFH Financial Group, who delved into the potential of transforming the region into a fintech hub and the importance of jumping on the digital bandwagon. 

The prime panel discussion on the “Future of Growth Amid Volatility” brought together five CEOs who explored methods to create future-proof strategies that can not only tackle challenges but also boost growth in a tough geopolitical and economic climate. 

Hisham Al-Rayes, CEO and board member of the GFH Financial Group, said: “Investing in the future in areas such as fintech, education and technology, the foundations for strong, enduring knowledge-based economies, is a priority for the group and the governments of the region in which we invest.”

“The Blockchain Opportunity” and “The Human Factor and Tech Innovation” panels brought together industry experts from Facebook, the Bahrain FinTech Bay and King Abdul Aziz University. 

“The Future of Women’s Business Leadership” panel discussed positive strides taken by GCC governments and businesses in leveling the playing field for women professionals.
