United Tower Real Estate has signed a management agreement with Hilton Worldwide to open a DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel at the Dilmunia Island project, currently under development off the coast of Bahrain.
When it opens in 2019, the completed DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Bahrain Dilmunia Island will have 237 serviced apartments.
Hilton now has three properties in its Bahraini development pipeline, and more than 70 percent of the company's Middle East pipeline is currently under construction, indicating strong growth for the region, Carlos Khneisser, VP of development for Middle East & North Africa at Hilton, said in a statement.
The company has more than 67 properties currently under development in the Middle East, which will more than double the existing portfolio size over the next few years. The DoubleTree portfolio includes more than 460 hotels worldwide.
