Best Western debuts in Bahrain
Manama, November 8, 2012
Best Western International, a global hotel chain, has launched its first hotel in Bahrain – Best Western Plus The Olive.
The opening of the upscale unit is the latest in a series of ‘firsts’ for Best Western in the Middle East region in 2012.
Following the company’s debut in Saudi Arabia and the launch of its first Best Western Plus hotel in the region at the start of the year, Best Western has since opened its first ever properties in Kuwait, Muscat and Riyadh.
The Best Western Plus The Olive offers 250 comfortable guest rooms all equipped with flat-screen televisions, minibars and high quality mattresses, pillows and cotton linen. As with all Best Western Plus hotels, complimentary Internet access is available in all rooms and public areas.
Other facilities include Best Western’s signature Bhuvana Spa, which offers a range of massages and therapies, business center, plus a gym and an outdoor swimming pool.
In terms of dining, the hotel’s Vesuvio restaurant offers Italian cuisine, while Mantraa serves up modern Indian dishes plus daily breakfast. Best Western Plus The Olive also offers 24-hour room service.
“The launch of our Best Western Plus brand in Bahrain marks another exciting stage in our Middle East expansion strategy,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s vice president International Operations – Asia & the Middle East.
“The Gulf region is one of the hottest hotel markets in the world today and Bahrain is a key part of this. I am confident that guests will enjoy the upscale splendors offered by this impressive new hotel.”
Best Western currently operates five hotels in the Middle East region, but this is expected to expand to 23 by 2015, incorporating all three Best Western brands – midscale Best Western, upscale Best Western Plus and luxury Best Western Premier, a company statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
