The new 350 room hotel is a five star property and will be located in Bahrain’s capital Manama in the upscale residential area of Juffair. Juffair is regarded as one of the most popular and prestigious areas of the city and the Doubletree Suites by Hilton hotel will be surrounded by stylish cafes, shops and restaurants.
Rudi Jagersbacher, President, Hilton Worldwide, Middle East & Africa said: “I am delighted we will make our Bahrain debut in Manama’s desirable district of Juffair. We have the right partner, the right location and the right property to add value and presence to the Manama landscape and to the character of the city.”
Doubletree Suites will form part of an upscale, mixed-use development with offerings ranging from studio apartments to premium three bedroom accommodations. The hotel, which is expected to appeal to the long stay corporate and leisure guest, offers a host of welcoming amenities including three restaurants, of which two will be specialty restaurants, a lobby lounge, meeting rooms, an outdoor pool and ‘his and hers’ health clubs.
Salim Ahmed Al Mannai, Chairman of Mannai Properties said: “The Kingdom of Bahrain has so much to offer the leisure and business guest and I am very pleased the new five star property will bear the name of one of the Middle East’s longest serving and best recognized hotel brand. Hilton Worldwide has a wealth of hospitality experience and together, we will create an outstanding property with world class facilities and services.”
Anil Nair, CEO of Mannai Properties added: “Once completed, this striking, iconic hotel will showcase the very best in hospitality and offer a unique proposition for guests and visitors to Bahrain.”
