Do you like to keep fit while “on the road” and choosing accommodation depending on the hotel fitness, or spa facilities ?
Have you been also wondering, why hotel booking sites and hotel pages contains so little or non-existent informations and photos from their fitness facilities?
Yes, you are not alone! I am not an olympic athlete by any means, but enjoy de-stressing cardio session or few lifts after long day at work or just little “top up” during beach vacation.
That’s why I have decided to review gyms in every hotel I am staying in and help you find and recommend ( or not ) a gym while travelling.
Bahrain is a small welcoming country in the Persian Gulf. If you find yourself travelling here for business, Formula 1 race, or to discover the ancient Dilmun civilisation history, you will need hotel and a GYM!
The City Centre Mall complex with adjacent Le Meridien and the Westin hotels offers a great accommodation, comfort and shared spa & fitness facilities.
Smallish gym which has most of the basic equipment to keep up with your routine. I was missing bench press, but otherwise you can improvise.
Gym is never busy, it is very clean, well maintained and the temperature is just right. Towels and water is available. Both hotels are sharing spa/gym facilities and are complimentary for guests.
Access is granted with your room card and gym is open 24hrs. Heavenly Spa closes at 9pm.
7/10 Equipment :
Modern Technogym machines and equipment. Free weights up to 26kg.
I really enjoyed the multifunctional chin/dip machine and vibrating plate.
Some extra hardware for push ups and aerobic step. All the usual cardio machine, but only one bench.
9/10 Facilities :
- Outdoor lap pool + bar
- Relax zone
- Hair salon
8/10 Verdict :
Excellent choice of hotels and facilities for business trip, or a weekend city break. Pool, spa and gym offers hours of fun and relaxation in modern, clean and well maintain environment.
