The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain is putting the ‘fun’ in fondue with its range of meaty and cheesy dishes that oozes winter vibes and aims to keep diners feeling cosy throughout the cooler season, writes Mai Al Khatib-Camille.

The five-star hotel’s pop-up concept, the Winter Chalet, situated on the resort’s white sandy beach, offers families and friends a ‘magical experience’ complete with crackling fire, decadent smells of roasted chestnuts, mouth-watering Raclette and schnitzel as well as other dishes.

The Winter Chalet is the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain’s take on an Alpine cottage in the middle of the city. Jeremy Canivet, director of sales and marketing, said: “Guests can enjoy a warm and cosy atmosphere while enjoying a sumptuous selection of food and beverage offerings, including specialty dishes like cheese Raclette, roasted vacherin Mont D’Or, and fondue bourguignonne.

“As the premier provider of unique dining experiences on the island, we believe that the Winter Chalet pop-up restaurant is an excellent addition to our gastronomic line up during the holiday season.”

A launch event was held last week with senior hotel executives welcoming members of the media to the cottage-like restaurant to sample the fondue fare.

The Winter Chalet is open until mid-February, from 3pm to 9pm Sunday to Wednesday, with a capacity of 30 persons at a time.

Blankets will also be provided to keep people warm and advance reservations are required.
