Dubai’s Jumeirah to manage Bahrain hotel resort

The resort will be Jumeirah’s second hotel in Bahrain

Dubai hotel group Jumeirah is set to manage a five-star resort on Bahrain’s southwest coast after signing a deal with Al Sahel Resorts.

The hotel project is part of the first phase of the Al Sahel development along a 1.25km stretch of coastline.

Al Sahel said the resort would feature 207 hotel rooms and villas, restaurants, water features and sports, a cinema, teen and kid’s rooms, meeting and conference spaces and a gym and spa.

“The unique location, as well as high degree of privacy, enable us to serve regional audiences looking for exclusivity. Being the first of its kind in Bahrain, coupled with the high quality and variety of services and amenities on offer, it will allow us to capture the ‘longer-stay’ segment of visitors.” said Khalid Al Rumaihi, chairman of Al Sahel Resorts.

The wider Al Sahel development is set to include a mixture of leisure, retail, entertainment and dining options. The first phase is scheduled for completion within two years.

Dubai Holding-owned Jumeirah opened its first hotel in Bahrain in February.

More broadly, Bahrain is expecting 15 new four- and five-star hotels and resort opening over the next two years.

The total number of tourists visiting the kingdom increased 11.9 per cent last year to 12.7 million.

Jumeirah has 20 luxury hotels and 18 in the pipeline under its main brand and a further five in the pipeline for its newly-announced Zabeel House brand.
