Jumeirah Group’s first hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain will open on Wednesday 28 February 2018. Jumeirah Royal Saray offers a new wave of understated luxury on a private beach in the northern coastal Seef district. Architecturally inspired by traditional Bahraini summerhouses, the hotel will blend history and modern culture with a chic dining, spa and pool scene.
The new hotel will feature 174 rooms, unique summerhouses and royal residences, poolside cabanas and an upscale casual and trendy restaurant with a gin bar.
PLAY Restaurant & Lounge, a Dubai concept by acclaimed chef Reif Othman, recently voted as the ‘Restaurant Of The Year’ by Timeout Restaurant Awards for Play Dubai, is set to open on 28 February, is also an exciting addition to the hotel.
Indoor and outdoor meeting spaces will be able to accommodate more than 400 people and Talise, Jumeirah’s own brand, will eventually offer a wide range of signature treatments from a destination Spa, sitting in its own wing.
Commenting on the opening of Jumeirah Royal Saray, Nordine El Yafi, said, “Jumeirah Royal Saray is an important opening for us as it’s our first in Bahrain and first in 2018. The hotel will become a key reason for international visitors to discover Bahrain, an ideal destination for a weekend escape for visitors from across the GCC, and a gastronomic hotspot in the city. We are confident that this landmark, the understated luxury hotel will have great appeal to the growing number of tourists visiting Bahrain every year and become a particular favourite of Bahrain residents.”
Located 15 minutes away from the airport, it is a great escape for both regional and international visitors. The hotel is set in an ideal location in the prestigious district of Seef, with its stunning coastline, luxury living and high-end shopping malls. It is also just a short drive to tourist landmarks including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Qal’at Al Bahrain – Ancient Harbour and Capital of Dilmun as well as Bahrain’s art, food and nightlife district and Muharraq Island.
