Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The hotel is in the early stages of development in the Al Jazayer area, which is a mixed-use project comprising of a public beach, retail and restaurant outlets, hospitality components and entertainment facilities. South of the capital of Manama, within close proximity to Bahrain International Circuit and the Saudi Arabian Causeway, and just 35 minutes from the Bahrain International Airport, the hotel is expected to be a popular destination for leisure, business, and MICE guests visiting the region.

Fairmont Bahrain Resort will have 215 guestrooms and chalets, Fairmont Gold – the brand's 'hotel within a hotel' concept, and over 21,500 square feet of meeting and event space, including a state-of-the-art ballroom. Appealing to the local market, GCC travelers and international visitors, the resort's leisure offerings will range from an expansive beachfront area including a Fairmont spa and health club to a wide variety of restaurants and lounges with dining concepts.
