The revamped lobby ... featuring a new blue and beige interior.

The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel Residence & Spa, Bahrain, one of the kingdom’s well recognised hotels, has recently completed an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation of the property.

The renovation, which included the modernisation of the lobby, reception area, rooms and hotel restaurants, took 12 months to complete and includes all 246 guest rooms and suites and the creation of a warm and inviting open floor reception area to welcome guests. The transformation incorporated a new blue and beige interior across the hotel with all guest rooms and suites being modernised with the addition of Apple TV, sensor lighting and bedside docking stations.
