Bahrain’s restored heritage house and hotel set to open
Renovation was a joint project between the UAE and Sheikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in Bahrain
Bahrain’s heritage hotel — Nuzul Al Salam — set in the Bahrain Pearling Path in the old town of Muharraq, will open next month.
Restoring what was previously known as the Fathallah House, Nuzul Al Salam opens following the completion of extensive restoration that was announced earlier this year, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported.
The renovation was a joint project between the UAE and Sheikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in Bahrain.
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.
