Hilton Worldwide, one of the largest hotel operators in the world, has announced its first hotel in Bahrain.

The five-star DoubleTree Suites by Hilton will open in the upscale residential area of Juffair, in the capital Manama, in late 2015, and will be managed by Tashyeed Properties Company.

Juffair is one of the most stylish areas of the city, and the 350-room hotel will be surrounded by cafes, shops and restaurants.

The hotel will form part of a modern, mixed-use development with a range of accommodation from studio apartments to premium three-bedroom suites.

It is expected to appeal to the long-stay corporate and leisure guest, with amenities including three restaurants, of which two will be speciality, a lobby lounge, two meeting rooms, an outdoor pool and ‘his and hers’ health clubs. 

Hilton Worldwide is planning 13 DoubleTree by Hilton hotels across the Middle East over the next three years to add to its existing portfolio of 340 hotels under that brand around the world.

“I am delighted we will make our Bahrain debut in Manama’s desirable district of Juffair,” Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa president Rudi Jagersbacher said.

“We have the right partner, the right location and the right property to add value and presence to the Manama landscape and to the character of the city.”

CEO of Mannai Holding and Tashyeed Properties Company, Anil Nair, said: “Once completed, this striking, iconic hotel will showcase the very best in hospitality and offer a unique proposition for guests and visitors to Bahrain.”

Bahrain, an archipelago of 33 islands in the Gulf, has outlined significant investment support for tourism with major infrastructure planned, including an integrated rapid road transit scheme linking it with neighbours Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The planned Qatar-Bahrain Causeway is set to become the world's longest marine causeway.

Expansion work is also due to complete on Bahrain’s International Airport by 2015.
