Anantara to open in Bahrain in 2018
Minor Hotel Group (MHG) is to develop the Anantara Durrat Al Bahrain Resort in partnership with Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, the investment arm of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The resort will be in Durrat Al Bahrain, the Kingdom’s second largest island development, which has been created across a cluster of 15 islands.
The hotel will be the first hospitality component in Durrat Al Bahrain, and will be an integrated destination project for leisure, business, and MICE guests.
The 21-square-kilometre master development is located on the south east coast of Bahrain and will include 2,000 beachfront villas, 3,600 executive apartments and offices, parks and entertainment precincts, retail malls and restaurants, along with a 400-berth marina.
Slated to open in 2018, Anantara Durrat Al Bahrain Resort will offer a total of 220 keys, including Lagoon View and Lagoon Access rooms, Beach Pool Villas and Overwater Pool Villas.
Having added its first property in Qatar at the beginning of the year, MHG now has a total of 10 hotels and resorts in operation across multiple brands in the Middle East, in addition to a growing pipeline.
Two Anantara resorts are in the final stages of development in Oman and three Anantara resorts were announced earlier this year to open in the region in 2017/18 in the UAE, Tunisia and Morocco.
Overall, Anantara currently has a portfolio of 34 hotels and resorts in operation in 10 countries across Asia, the Indian Ocean, Africa and the Middle East, along with a pipeline of more than 10 properties in multiple countries.
