Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) contemporary luxury hotel brand, today announced plans to bring the global brand to Manama, Bahrain following the signing of an agreement to open Conrad Residences Bahrain Financial Harbour in 2022 at the upcoming state of the art, mixed-use development, First Energy Bank Tower.
The highly anticipated property will be the first fully residential luxury development for the Conrad brand in the Middle East. Part of Bahrain Financial Harbour, a commercial waterfront development located on the northern shore of Manama, Conrad Residences Bahrain Financial Harbour will provide an exceptional location for people to enjoy spectacular coastal views of the Arabian Gulf while being conveniently located in the heart of the capital city’s up-and-coming business and residential district.
“We’re extremely delighted with this partnership with Hilton which will mark the debut of Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ first fully residential property in the Middle East. We believe that this will be a high value addition, not only for the upcoming FEB Tower at Bahrain Financial Harbour, but for the Kingdom of Bahrain,” said Mohamed Ghanem, CEO of First Energy Bank. “The introduction of the Conrad brand to Bahrain will provide further visibility of the hospitality sector in the Kingdom, enabling the property to offer a unique and premium product appealing to regional and international travelers, and will attract a new class of travelers to the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
“We are delighted to debut Conrad Hotels & Resorts in Bahrain with this outstanding new property,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton. “We see significant opportunity in branded luxury residences for our world class hospitality brands. Whether planning a long or short-term stay, guests can look forward to enjoying unparalleled service standards and state-of-the-art amenities at this exclusive Conrad property.”
