Minor Hotel Group to develop new resort in Bahrain
The hospitality company currently holds a portfolio of 134 hotels and resorts across 22 countries in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, South America and Africa. MHG is planning the new resort in Bahrain in partnership with Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, the investment arm of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The resort will be the first hospitality component in Durrat Al Bahrain, the Kingdom’s second largest island development. The development has been built up across a cluster of 15 islands. The hotel is planned as an integrated destination project for leisure and business guests visiting the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The 21-square-kilometer master development is located on the southeast coast of Bahrain and will include two thousand beachfront villas, 3,600 executive apartments and offices, parks and entertainment districts. Residents and visitors will have access to newly built retail malls and restaurants, along with a 400-berth marina.
Anantara Durrat Al Bahrain Resort is set to open in 2018 with a total of 220 keys, including Lagoon View and Lagoon Access rooms, Beach Pool Villas and Overwater Pool Villas. Additional facilities will include a selection of restaurants, meeting rooms, a state-of-the-art ballroom, a gym, a children's club, a teen center and a spa.
William E. Heinecke, CEO of Minor International, said the company is pleased to announce the new Anantara resort in Bahrain.
“It’s an exciting time for Minor Hotel Group as we continue to expand our footprint within the Middle East and wider MEA region, especially with our core luxury Anantara brand which, in addition to operating ten properties in MEA, now has a further six properties in the pipeline in five countries in the region,” Heinecke said.
