Nuzul Al Salam will now be open to visitors from the region and beyond, reflecting authentic Bahraini architecture, allowing visitors to experience key aspects of traditional Arab design combined with modern architectural style.

The hotel is based on the Pearling Path in Muharraq, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that connects several key centres in the pearl industry.

Nuzul Al Salam’s architecture is inspired by the legend of Gilgamesh, where the story has been narrated through contemporary and modern wall hangings and decorative floors designed by Bahraini craftsmen.

The rooms in the property are inspired by the tale and the courtyard includes a garden filled with lemon and orange trees.
