The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, has transformed its stunning Masaya Pavilion into the World Pavilion, a soccer sanctuary with perfect soundand vision to welcome fans wanting to watch the action in a lap of luxury.
Football aficionados are flocking to the venue as the groupstages are completed and excitement gathers for the business end of the FIFAWorld Cup Finals 2018.
Hector Vargas, outlets manager, has been delighted with the response to the changes made to the stunning octagon-shaped structure, which despite its grandeur has captured a homely vibe with comfy sofas adorning thevenue.
“What we thought of as a team at the Ritz-Carlton was thatwe had a beautiful structure that we could utilise to create a luxurious World Cup experience for fans and judging from the reaction we’ve received so far we’ve managed to pull it off.
“It’s a unique venue and you cannot compare it to anywhere-else in Bahrain. It’s a very homely environment in a luxurious setting.”
Guests are welcomed by the flags of the competing nations,cut out footballers and they’ve even laid out a green carpet of artificial turfto ensure fans step into the Batelco-supported football world in style.
No expense has been spared on the technology used to deliversharp images on 10 large screens and an additional two ‘mega screens’ with superb sound quality to match. Add all that to the famed Ritz-Carlton service and you’re on to a winner, said Hector, who has more reasons to smile than most, coming from Mexico.
Mexico have probably been one of the surprise packages ofthis year’s tournament winning both their opening games beating current WorldCup champions Germany and they took a big step towards the last 16 with an impressive win over South Korea.
They play Sweden later today and could next face Serbia, Switzerland or Brazil, with the prospect of a tie against Belgium or England in the quarter-finals.
“It’s been a tournament full of surprises and many of thebig shots have not been performing as well as expected. I can see Mexico reaching the quarter-finals at least,” Hector predicted.
However, he believes that Belgium and Portugal will make it all the way to the final on July 15 and promises the Ritz-Carlton team is all set to welcome up to 250 football fans every step of the way who will also bein good cheer thanks to a special menu produced by beverage partner, BMMI.
Last night was packed for the Saudi Arabia v Egypt clashwith fans enjoying the action and munching on the World Pavilion snacks which included a range of choices from Chips & Salsa at BD2++ to Burgers atBD5++.
