The Partnership with Infracorp puts Kempinski at the heart of Manama’s burgeoning downtown district
Geneva, 10 December 2023 —Kempinski Hotels is returning to the Kingdom of Bahrain with a landmark hotel and residences in a striking new development in Bahrain Harbour. Europe’s oldest luxury hotel company has inked a deal with Infracorp, which currently has more than US $3 billion in assets under management.
Kempinski Hotel and Residences Manama, Bahrain, will occupy one of three signature towers that are part of the mixed-use Bahrain Harbour development. The property will boast 74 guestrooms situated on the upper floors and an additional 186 Kempinski branded residences spread across the rest of the building, which is expected to open its doors by the end of 2025.
“This landmark development re-establishes our a foothold in Bahrain and our long-standing commitment to the Middle East,” says Bernold Schroeder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kempinski Group. “At Kempinski Bahrain Harbour, guests will discover a warm European welcome in a setting that reflects the riches of the Arabian Gulf; a modern and sophisticated environment set around a wonderful marina at the heart of Bahrain’s financial district. We are thrilled to be partnering with Infracorp on this prestigious project.”
Elegant and luxuriously appointed rooms and suites at Kempinski Bahrain Harbour Hotel and The Residences at Kempinski Bahrain Harbour, will be the highest in the Kingdom, offering elevated views across the marina and Manama skyline from floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies. The guestrooms and branded residences will feature contemporary style interiors with soft colours, marble features and wooden textures, with accented feature walls and brass fixtures.
