Progressive dining concept launched at ART Rotana's WU Restaurant & Lounge

Bringing a unique and innovative concept to Asian dining, ART Rotana, the luxury hotel located in the heart of Amwaj, launched its latest progressive dining venue. WU– translated as the number five in Mandarin, is a modern-chic restaurant and lounge boasting a contemporary approach to Asian cuisine.

Staying true to its name, WU offers a culinary journey through Asia with a selection of authentic dishes from China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Thailand on its menu. Set against stunning backdrops of beach and lush garden, WU restaurant and lounge brings a new twist to traditional fine-dining Asian cuisine, with a melting pot of Asian flavours freshly prepared and designed to be shared.

“ART Rotana continues to focus its efforts and resources in bringing new and exciting concepts to the market and further establishing Bahrain as a hub for culinary excellence,” commented Joe Batshoun, General Manager of ART Rotana Amwaj Islands. 

“Our unique differentiator is our innovative concept supported by our exceptional location and quality. Our aim is to bring our customers a memorable gastronomic experience prepared from fresh mouth-watering ingredients in a unique setting,” he added.

Distinctive in both flavour and setting, WU features an inspiring menu to suit every palette and is spread over three separate areas to accommodate all requirements – its indoor restaurant, a trendy lounge and an outdoor terrace overlooking the beach. WU is the latest addition to ART Rotana’s extensive selection of dining options and promises the ultimate evening escape with friends.

Conveniently located at five minutes’ drive from Bahrain International Airport and only 10 minutes from the city centre, ART Rotana caters to the growing needs of the global traveller and complements the vibrancy and sophistication of Bahrain’s tourism and hospitality sector.

The hotel features 311 striking sea-view rooms and suites with an inviting, minimalist décor that embraces warm, earthly colour combinations. Comfortable interiors, panoramic views and ample in-room services and amenities make this a haven for business travellers, residents, families and holiday makers.
