I was invited to try the female-only lounge but couldn’t (obviously) so a relative went instead and here’s what she had to say about the place: The Ladies’ Lounge, is located in the luxury hotel now called The Regency and is not as far as other ladies-only beaches, and is close to Al Bida’a.
The Lounge which comfortably accommodates thirty female guests provides an outdoor private pool with Jacuzzi and dipping pool by the sea. The place is beautifully landscaped with plenty of greenery, and all the sun loungers you can ask for.
Other than that, there is a private beach area at the end. The staff was very friendly, helpful and most attentive. Everything was comfortable and convenient with plenty of clean towels, and enough lockers provided in the spacious shower rooms.
The lounge also provides an elegantly furnished area for dining, or just to sit and enjoy a light snack or coffee. The menu offers a variety of hot and cold drinks and dishes which are created by the hotel’s international chefs. However the food quality and presentation could use some improvement.
You can enjoy the female lounge services by becoming a regular member, with 1300 kd for a 7 month subscription. The good news is that they also offer a one day entrance for 20kd where you can come and enjoy the place yourself before investing in a long period membership. Additionally, they are currently offer a %30 discount on the membership fees for a limited period of time. Not sure how long the offer is going for so those interested should go for it when they can.
I had a good time.
