Campbell Gray Hotels is set to open The Merchant House in Manama, Bahrain in September 2018. Revealed in 2016 by Hotelier Middle East, the hotel will be located next to the Bab el-Bahrain Souk. The Merchant House will be an all-suite boutique hotel with 47 suites in total, each featuring an open plan kitchen and dining area, as well as open plan sitting rooms which have been designed for both business and leisure.
As with all Campbell Gray Hotels, artwork will be a prominent feature of the interior design and Gordon Campbell Gray (the founder of Campbell Gray Hotels) has, over the past year, been putting together an art collection comprising Bahraini artists as well as upcoming young talent from both Bahrain and the region.
The design has been created specifically for The Merchant House and will include vibrant colours, details of graffiti and concrete alongside white linen sofas in the lobby, and a colourful and carefully curated library.
The rooftop is where guests can find the main restaurant and the bar with options to eat indoors or outdoors. There is also a rooftop pool and a gym, as well as a small boardroom for meetings and private events.
Campbell Gray said in a statement: "We are so looking forward to bringing our special brand of hospitality to Bahrain this year with the opening of The Merchant House in Manama. We are confident that with its central location, beautiful facilities and comfortable all-suite accommodation it will be rather special, and we are eager to welcome our first guests through the door."
