Dusit International signs for new property in Bahrain

Dusit International has signed a hotel management agreement with Al Manzil Hospitality Group to operate the dusitD2 Seef Bahrain, a contemporary leisure and business hotel, scheduled to open in Manama, the country’s modern capital, next year.

In line with Dusit International’s strategy for sustainable and profitable growth, which includes balancing its portfolio to include half of its operations outside of Thailand by 2022, the new hotel will be the company’s first hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The opening will help to position Dusit for further expansion within the GCC region, where it already operates five hotels, with another five confirmed in the pipeline.

The dusitD2 Seef Bahrain is conveniently located near Bahrain International Airport and other major flagship developments concentrated along the King Faisal and Sheikh bin Salman Highways, which connect the Saudi Causeway with Central Manama.

Predominantly appealing to Saudi travellers, which constitute approximately 60 per cent of inbound visitors to Bahrain, the contemporary upscale hotel will comprise 195 spacious units with sea views.

Amenities will include meeting facilities, a kids’ club, an expansive health and fitness centre with spa and rooftop pool, and a multitude of restaurants.

Despite being a small country, Bahrain is renowned for its rich cultural and historical legacy, making it an excellent destination for adventurous travellers keen to explore its ancient burial mounds and other significant archaeological sites, such as the well-preserved ruins of residential houses, temples and cemeteries which date back to the third millennium BC.

“We are delighted to add Bahrain to our list of international destinations, further strengthening Dusit’s presence within the GCC region,” said Suphajee Suthumpun, group chief executive, Dusit International.

“By combining Dusit’s signature gracious hospitality with local hospitality customs and excellent entertainment facilities, dusitD2 Seef Bahrain will provide a truly distinctive experience for our guests.

“Working with Al Manzil Hospitality Group, we are confident the hotel will be a great success, and a new landmark in the region.”

Dusit International currently operates 29 properties in key destinations around the globe with another 51 projects in the pipeline.

Alongside dusitD2, other brands in the company’s international portfolio include Dusit Thani, Dusit Devarana, and DusitPrincess.
