The 128-room property is expected to open January of 2020 and “will operate under a management agreement with developer, Bin Faqeeh Real Estate Investment Company S.P.C.”.


Located in the capital city of Manama, the property comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious suites, large workspaces, complimentary WiFi, a business and fitness centre.

Talking about the signing, Pascal Gauvin, managing director, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG said: “The tourism industry in Bahrain is gaining momentum with an increase in leisure and business travellers, especially from the GCC countries, that is resulting in a rising demand for long stay accommodation. Seef District is the commercial hub of Bahrain and boasts of some of the best shopping destinations in the city, which is why it makes perfect sense to develop the Kingdom of Bahrain’s first Staybridge Suites here.”
