Hotel's Favourite
I have been to quite a few brunches in Bahrain but the one at the Merchant House stands out for all the right reasons - from when you arrive (valet parking option), the welcome at reception, the amazing art throughout the hotel , the welcome cocktail reception at the rooftop bar ( innovative cocktails by a guy called Earth), appero on the rooftop terrrasse by the pool , then a 7 course (I think) brunch with a fantastic mix of flavours and wines that worked with the menu . The service and welcome from the GM (Justin ) right through to the doorman was exemplary. The food, ambiance, the staff... I can’t fine even one minor issue which meant my friends and I had one of the most memorable afternoons in a place yet to be discovered. I was tempted to keep it a secret , but hey go and enjoy sometime . We will be back. thank you .

I had a lovely breakfast at Indigo terrace. The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. Jishnu was really sweet and helpful. He even offered to take pictures for me to post on social media when I struggled to get a good shot! I had avocado toast with grilled hallumi cheese. The chill jam was really good
