Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company (Edamah), the real estate arm of Mumtalakat Holding Company, announced partnering with Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group with over 400 hotels, to open a new Mantis property in Bahrain’s Hawar Island.
The Mantis Bahrain Hawar Island Hotel & Resort, set to open in 2024, will merge luxury with eco-tourism while redefining adventure.
The project is on Hawar Island, a 45-minute boat ride from the Bahrain mainland and enjoys recognition for its natural history.
Guests will have the chance to stay in overwater villas offering direct access to the sea while experiencing superior service, quality, and beautiful island nature.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Accor to open the first Mantis hotel in Bahrain on Hawar Island and welcoming visitors from across the region with the traditional warm hospitality that Bahrain is known for,” said Edamah CEO, Amin Alarrayed.
“We are noticing that travellers are now more than ever looking for authentic experiences when travelling while remaining conscious of the environment,” says Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey.
Once open, the hotel & resort will feature 72 keys, along with five dining concepts and extensive sports and leisure facilities, such as an Adventure Park, a tennis court, a bike track, and a waterpark.
Additionally, the property will have its helipad.
The property will feature two main concepts: the beach resort, which will encompass luxury accommodation units coupled with chill-out zones, bars and coffee stations, meditation spaces, and other social areas for adventure and sports enthusiasts. Guests can choose from a variety of recreational activities such as morning hikes, beach walks, outdoor beach yoga sessions, and water sports.
Accor currently operates eight properties (1,174 keys) in Bahrain, with another 3 (436 keys) in the pipeline.
