One&Only Seef Bahrain is currently on track for a 2017 opening, a senior official has revealed, despite reports of a delay late last year.
Initially marked for a 2016 opening, general manager Jerome Colson confirmed that progress on the project from a construction standpoint is “moving along” with fit out being completed and OS&E on the way, he said during an interview with Hotelier Middle East.
Colson said: “We have something quite unique in Bahrain – a private lagoon the size of which is the equivalent of three soccer fields and around the lagoon, we have 10 mansions which are ideal for families.
“Each mansion has eight bedrooms, including an executive suite with a private pool so it’s the perfect accommodation for large families but also for the Middle East market.”
The hotel includes 175 rooms, suites and villas as well as over 72 acres of property. It will also house the Kingdom's first branch of London-born modern Chinese restaurant concept Hakkasan, as well as a Givenchy Spa.
"One&Only Seef will also help to position Bahrain internationally as a travel destination; Bahrain has been in need of an ultra-luxury resort," Colson added.
