Stunning modern design meets timeless hospitality at this luxury hotel, an iconic destination in Manama. IHG commissioned dwp to complete extensive renovations and upgrades spanning the guest rooms and public areas, including the lobby, reception, lobby lounge, Italian restaurant and all-day dining facility.
The challenge facing dwp was how to respond to the considerable constraints presented by the existing structure: an elegant design, at once modern and respectful of the geographical and cultural location, as well as the history of the hotel. Relishing the challenge, dwp seized the opportunity to establish new standards of sophistication in the Gulf, befitting such an exclusive hotel. The resulting design is fluid and adaptable, while maintaining an overall unique look for Bahrain. Much of the furniture and lighting was custom-designed, and the finest materials were sourced from around the globe, for timeless elegance. Set to be an iconic hotel for the Intercontinental Group in the region, it will set the benchmark for other hotels in Bahrain, having fully met client expectations, opening on time and within budget.
