Five-star resort for Al Sahel development

June 2018

Al Sahel Resort Company is set to develop a new five-star property on the southwest coast of Bahrain, said a top official at the Gateway Gulf, a major investment event held in the capital Manama last month.

Announcing the property launch, chairman Khalid Al Rumaihi said the resort is the first phase of the Al Sahel development, which will be completed within two years.

This destination boasts 1.25 km of pristine coastline and will be nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while being within easy reach of all of Bahrain’s major tourism destinations and transport links. Furthermore, its out-of-city location makes it the kingdom’s first ‘retreat’ style venue.

“The unique location, as well as the 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,” he added.

The five-star resort offering a high level of seclusion will feature both room and villa-based accommodation, and a comprehensive range of entertainment and leisure components for the whole family including restaurants, water features and sports, cinema, teen smart room, kids club, meeting and conference services, sports and spa facilities.

The wider destination will complement the resort and include leisure, retail and entertainment options to provide a complete offering away from the city centre, said the top official.

Jumeirah Group, the global hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, has already signed a hotel management agreement to operate a luxury Jumeirah hotel and spa within the first phase of the development.
