InterContinental Regency Bahrain celebrates Ramadan by offering truly authentic experiences throughout the holy month. This year the Al Thurayya Ramadan Tent is set to exceed everyone’s expectations with a fresh new design and refurbishment that has taken place. The ambience will never be like before with the newly refurbished tent comprising traditional majlis sections and low-seating areas combined with traditional Egyptian folk dances, including the colorful El-Tanoura Dance.
