Starwood Hotels & Resorts is set to open two new hotels in Bahrain in July, in partnership with the Majid Al Futtaim property group. 

The 200-room Westin Bahrain City Centre and the 260-rooom Le Méridien Bahrain City Centre will both be directly connected to the Bahrain City Centre shopping mall. 

Michael Wale, president of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East, said: “We have a long presence in the country, dating back to 1981, and look forward to expanding our footprint here with the launch of these two distinct lifestyle brands.”

Amenities and services at the Westin Bahrain City Centre will include a Heavenly Spa by Westin, a Westin Workout gym, a pool and the option to order from the SuperfoodsRX menu; centred on foods rich in antioxidants and other essential nutrients. 

Le Méridien Bahrain City Centre, where accommodation options will comprise 18 executive suites and one presidential suite, will also offer 565sq m of meeting and events space. The hotel will feature three dining venues, including the Latitude coffee bar and lounge and an all-day dining restaurant.  

Starwood currently operates close to 50 hotels, under nine different brands, across the Middle East. The Majid Al Futtaim group, whose holdings include hotels, supermarkets and shopping centres, currently has 11 hotels in operation across the region.
