Lalapaloza in Bahrain

Mother-daughter bonding with nibbles, karaoke and ice-cream mani-pedis

Lalapaloza in Bahrain

Walking into Lalapaloza is like walking straight back into your childhood. This dessert-themed spa, salon, retail shop and party room boasts hundreds of brightly coloured sweets and candy-inspired toys, alongside inviting smells of chocolate, strawberries and other tempting flavours.

It might sound like an indulgence, but actually the aim here is to promote a healthy body image for children by introducing them to make-up and beauty treatments early on. “This is not about children looking like grown-ups,” co-founder Nash Elkounfoudi explains. “We actually want to introduce a healthy way of dealing with make-up and also how to deal with your skin when you start reacting to hormones.”

While kids are invited to make-over dolls in the Lala Mini section, or enjoy spa treatments that use natural, hypo-allergenic sweet treats, mums can also get involved by booking the new package that allows them to enjoy a day with their daughter.

First on the agenda is an ice-cream flavoured mani-pedi, followed by a sweet hand and foot massage. Then decorate mini cupcakes together, while sampling some complimentary refreshments.

After the little one gets her glitter tattoo, and enjoys being dolled up in some organic make-up, head to the party room, where you can have a go on the karaoke machine.

To top it all off, the team will take photos so you can savour the day for years to come. It’s what (sweet) dreams are made of.
BD20 (BD10 per additional guest). Mon-Wed noon-4pm. Book three days in advance. Lalapaloza, second floor, Al A’ali Shopping Complex, Seef District (16 101 612).
