In a 2015 report, we reported that Sheraton Bahrain would be undergoing a renovation soon. The then hotel manager Thomas Flindt said: “There are infrastructure challenges as it is a 33-year-old hotel. Renovation will take place over the next couple of years but whether we are going to do it as a whole where we close down completely or in phases is still yet to be seen.”

According to reports, the renovation is estimated to be around US$40 million.

Sheraton Bahrain features 256 rooms and suites, with the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Beds and workspaces.
