22 hotels will open in Bahrain by 2023.

Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) said 22 hotels would open in the kingdom between now and 2023, with BTEA chief executive officer, Sheikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa, stating that the growing number of tourists to Bahrain would drive this growth. 

Al Khalifa, citing BTEA figures, said preliminary data for Q1 2019 showed that the number of inbound tourists to the kingdom posted a 3.1% annual hike to reach 3.2 million during the period. 

Other data showed that five-star hotel occupancy figures jumped 53% compared to 2018's growth of 50%, while corresponding figures for four-star properties increased from a growth rate of 42% to 46% in Q1 2019.

Al Khalifa said Bahrain's hotel construction pipeline was designed to align with these increasing numbers, according to Construction Week's sister title Hotelier Middle East.
