Hotel offers golf deals

The Regency Inter-Continental ... fairway packages.

Bahrain's Regency Inter-Continental is offering guests the ultimate combination of business and pleasure with its new range of golf packages designed to suit both business golfers and golfers who mean business.

The five-star hotel has teamed up with Riffa Golf Club, Bahrain's world-class 18-hole championship course, to provide guests with a chance to combine a visit to Bahrain with two rounds of golf in two different packages to suit a variety of business and social schedules.

The Weekday Wander and The Weekend Wander can be applied to either a one or two-night stay and include transport to and from the golf course, two 18-hole rounds of golf, use of golf cart, bucket of range balls, a golf amenity gift, free use of The Regency's gym, free daily newspaper and airport shuttle service.

Located in the heart of Manama's business and banking district, the Regency Inter-Continental is just 10 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from Riffa Golf Club - a par 72 course which features five lakes, more than 70 sand bunkers and almost 1,000 trees.

"More and more people are doing business on the fairway," said marketing manager Cindy Stewart.

"Our packages give guests the chance to combine business in the boardroom with business on the course in an easy, cost-effective manner."

The Riffa Golf Club is an award-winning course managed by the world- renowned Gleneagles of Scotland. The club features the country's only golf academy, three full-time PGA professionals, hi-tech video swing analysis studios, and full course floodlights for those who prefer to play at night.

For the convenience of its guests, the Regency Inter-Continental offers a range of 24-hour services including a round-the-clock health club, business centre, room service and laundry valet service.
