A Delightful Iftar and an Enjoyable Ghabga at InterContinental Regency Bahrain

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.
