Bahrain Marina Development Company (BMDC) has appointed Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts as the hotel management company for the luxury hotel and waterfront villas located in Bahrain Marina.
Scheduled to open in 2022, Shangri-La Hotel, Bahrain will offer 250 guest rooms, 150 one- to three-bedroom suites, eight beach chalets and 21 waterfront villas.
It will offer extensive recreational and meeting facilities, including five restaurants, a rooftop lounge, private beach, two outdoor pools, health club and spa, Kid’s Club and 1,038-square metre ballroom.
“Bringing the iconic Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts brand to Bahrain in the landmark Bahrain Marina will strengthen the destination as well as further enhance brand recognition in the region,” Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited president and chief operating officer Oliver Bonke said.
Stretched along a pristine coastline in the heart of the city, the multi-use complex in Bahrain Marina will also feature residences, a yacht club, shopping district, family entertainment centre and waterfront dining, retail and recreational spaces.
Shangri-La currently operates six properties in the GCC, with hotels and resorts located in Qatar, Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
The group’s first hotel in Saudia Arabia, Shangri-La Hotel, Jeddah, will open next year.
