The Kingdom of Bahrain will soon welcome international hotel brand Park Regis with the opening of the island nation’s first Park Regis Hotel in the Juffair district of Manama in the third quarter of 2017.

The 164-key hotel will have six food and beverage outlets including a 1000 capacity ballroom, swimming pool and gym.

StayWell Hospitality Group CEO Simon Wan said that the recent signing of the marketing license agreement with Manama-based VKL Group, who operate a portfolio of hotels with more than 1,300 rooms and another 600 rooms shortly, will enable StayWell Hospitality Group to open additional properties across Bahrain in the coming 12 months.

“Following the signature of a 550-keys, Park Regis Resort in the UAE the day before, I am encouraged by the future expansion plans into the region and confident that this partnership with VKL Group reflects our commitment to grow our presence in the Middle East Region. We are hoping that this property is the stepping stone for a further presence in Bahrain.” said Wan. 

VKL Group, Chairman Dr Varghese Kurian said that formalising the partnership with StayWell Hospitality Group and opening the Park Regis Lotus in the last quarter of 2017 is the start of significant expansion in the Middle East.

“We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with StayWell Hospitality Group and are confident that we can move quickly with future properties under the StayWell Brands; Park Regis and Leisure Inn,” Kurian said.

When opened, the Park Regis Lotus hotel, which is located in the nation’s capital of Manama, will have easy access to Bahrain's largest mosque, the Al Fateh Mosque and the Bahrain causeway, which connects the Island country to Saudi Arabia.
