We talk to GM Vijayan Sadanandan about The Arch’s futuristic architecture along with his ideals in managing hospitality.
With stylish exteriors and matching modern interiors, The Arch Hotel is an iconic hotel extending the best of hospitality to all patrons from all over the world. Having recently opened last July, it is already setting standards in Juffair’s hospitality scene.
Located only 15 minutes away from the Bahrain International Airport, The Arch Hotel is ideal for long-term stays, business trips, and holidays. With tasteful design and topnotch facilities, the 117 room and suites prove to be a haven of relaxation for different kinds of travellers. General Manager Vijayan Sadanandan shares that the new hotel has eclectic amenities that set them apart from the rest.
GM Vijayan, who has almost two decades of experience under his name, expresses his belief in the importance of team work for success. According to him, each of The Arch Hotel’s team member has been hand-picked to ensure the best possible service given to the guests. Although he’s very hands-on when it comes to floor operations, he also leaves room for his team to spark innovation and creativity – ideas that when implemented, boost morale for the crew and enhance experience for the guests.
The remarkable hotel boasts amenities to satisfy the leisure of its guests including noteworthy outlets like Sol Café, Tex Mex Lounge, E11even Club, Posh Lounge and Fizz. Its gym and health club is fully-equipped with an outdoor swimming pool and sauna. Rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul with Asian aromatherapy and similar treatments is available at their boutique spa, Aura. The hotel’s Cristal Hall, an elegant banquet space able to accommodate conferences, events, or personal celebrations for up to 120 people, will soon be open to reservations.
Vijayan has always admired the architecture of The Arch Hotel. Its beauty always warrants a second look from passersby and its tenants alike. “The hotel does a wonderful job attracting customers with its structure, the staff and I guarantee the luxury of their stay.”
