Dusit signs first Bahrain hotel with dusitD2 in Manama
The 195-unit property in Bahrain's capital is scheduled to open in 2018
Dusit International has signed a hotel management agreement with Al Manzil Hospitality Group to operate the dusitD2 Seef Bahrain, scheduled to open in Manama in 2018.
Dusit International’s strategy is to have half of its operations outside of Thailand by 2022, and the new hotel will be the company’s first hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The opening will help to position Dusit for further expansion within the GCC region, where it already operates five hotels, with another five confirmed in the pipeline.
The dusitD2 Seef Bahrain is located near Bahrain International Airport and other major flagship developments concentrated along the King Faisal and Sheikh bin Salman Highways, which connect the Saudi Causeway with Central Manama.
The contemporary upscale hotel will comprise 195 units with sea views. Amenities will include meeting facilities, a kids’ club, a health and fitness centre with spa and rooftop pool, and restaurants.
"We are delighted to add Bahrain to our list of international destinations, further strengthening Dusit’s presence within the GCC region," said Dusit International group chief executive officer Suphajee Suthumpun in a statement.
Dusit International currently operates 29 properties around the globe with another 51 projects in the pipeline. Alongside dusitD2, other brands in the company’s international portfolio include Dusit Thani, Dusit Devarana, and DusitPrincess.
