Leaders in operating luxury accommodation, including Bahrain’s pre-eminent five-star hotel, The Gulf Hotel will make its debut at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai May 4, 2010 where they can be found at their corporate stand number HC1200.

With its flagship Gulf Hotel and Gulf Convention Centre in Bahrain’s capital Manama, the group’s developing range of interests takes another step forward in September with the launch of another innovative hotel development, the opening of the much-anticipated K Hotel.

Founded in 1967 as the Bahrain Hotels Company, todays Gulf Hotels Group continues the original vision of providing an unrivalled standard of hospitality on the island.

Quoted on the Bahrain Stock Exchange, the group diversified its business with the launch in 2000 of the Gulf Hotels Group to undertake the management of hotels and catering operations on behalf of investors. Further innovation came in 2006 when the Gulf Hotels Group opened its first luxury services apartments, the Gulf Executive Residence in Bahrain.

The Gulf Hotel and Gulf Convention Centre

This landmark property is Bahrain’s original and leading five-star luxury property, conveniently located just minutes from the trendy Adliya area of Manama and close to the Grand Mosque.

Perfectly suited for both business and leisure travellers, its 357 stylishly-designed rooms offer panoramic views of the city. Food lovers will not be disappointed, with 15 restaurants, ranging from Italian fine dining, traditional Persian and Lebanese, authentic Japanese and Chinese cuisine to the highly-popular Mexican option.

Refurbished in 2007, the property is home to the Kingdom of Bahrain’s largest conference and convention facilities within a hotel, offering outstanding venues for all sizes of events, from small business meetings to major symposiums. The Gulf Convention Centre provides 4,780 square meters of event space, fully equipped with the latest audiovisual equipment, telephone points, high-speed Internet access and three purpose-built translation booths for simultaneous translation in two languages – Arabic and English.

The Gulf Convention Centre’s crowning glory is its magnificent Al Dana Hall which makes the perfect venue for international seminars, exhibitions, gala dinners, banquets, weddings and award ceremonies stretching over 1,604 square metres, that can accommodate up to 2,500 guests for cocktail receptions and 1,260 for an elegant banquet.

An additional Exhibition Hall can hold 75 booths and boasts direct drive-in access a built-in stage, catwalk facilities, power supply units and light rigs, as well as the option to divide the hall into separate conference areas that can cater for smaller meetings.

The K Hotel

Latest addition to the Gulf Hotels Group portfolio will be The K Hotel, a distinctive four-star deluxe property, scheduled to open on September 1.

Located in Juffair, just 15 minutes from the airport and close to the diplomatic area, this 237-room property is also targeting business and leisure travellers.

The accommodation will comprise 156 spacious and luxuriously-appointed rooms, together with 78 suites. In addition, there will be a two-bedroom Princess Suite with its own private rooftop swimming pool, a further two-bedroomed Prince Suite and the hotel’s crowning glory, a two-level penthouse King Suite, offering four bedrooms and private rooftop pool.

In Gulf Hotels Group tradition, The K Hotel will set new trends for gastronomy. An all-day-dining restaurant will feature a steak-house style menu in the evening, while an Asian-style restaurant will specialise in noodles and dim sum, plus the bistro-style The Terrace.

Meeting rooms will accommodate between 10 and 160 delegates and facilities are completed with an outstanding health club and two swimming pools – one for adults and another for children.
