Wyndham Hotel Group Announces First Wyndham Hotel in Bahrain
Wyndham Hotel Group, the worldâ€™s largest hotel company with over 7,170 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced plans for the first Wyndham GrandÂ® property in Bahrain following the signing of an agreement with Cooperation Investment House SPC to manage its prestigious landmark building in Manamaâ€™s Bahrain Bay.
Upon opening, the hotel will join the Wyndham GrandÂ® Collection, an ensemble of distinguished hotels within the upscale WyndhamÂ® Hotels and Resorts brand.
Currently under development, the five-star Wyndham Grand Manama is expected to open by the end of next year with more than 260 spacious guest rooms ranging from 46 to 120 square metres (approximately 495 to 1,290 square feet). Covering 14 floors of a 50-storey mixed use development, it will also comprise 500 square metres (nearly 5,400 square feet) of meeting space and a 900-square-metre ballroom (equivalent to nearly 9,700 square feet) on the buildingâ€™s top floor, offering stunning sea views. Complemented by indoor and outdoor infinity swimming pools and separate health clubs for men and women, the development will also include five food and beverage outlets catering to a variety of tastes.
"This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting development," said Bani Haddad, regional vice president Middle East & Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group. "Each Wyndham Grand hotel takes in some of the flavour of its destination and this modern, cosmopolitan setting will be reflected in the hotel along with historical Bahraini influences. It is a fantastic setting and a great property for this distinguished collection."
Bahrain Bay Development B.S.C. is a $2.5 billion waterfront district designed around vibrant neighbourhoods of residential, commercial and retail spaces. Set in this unique new development, the Wyndham Grand Manama will face the World Trade Centre, just a short distance from Bahrain Financial Harbour, making it well placed to cater to business as well as leisure travellers.
"We are delighted and honoured to work with Wyndham Hotel Group on the first Wyndham Grand hotel in Bahrain," said Ahmed AlQaed, managing director, Cooperation Investment House SPC. "By combining the WyndhamÂ® brand's authentic hospitality and high-quality service with modern corporate office spaces in one magnificent development at this prime location, we believe we are creating the best tourist and business destination this area will offer."
Chief executive officer of Bahrain Bay, said, "Bahrain Bay Development B.S.C. is proud to announce itself home to the Kingdom's only Wyndham, which will be a terrific addition to this prestigious location. I am confident it will add great value and offer a high standard of quality to guests."
