A business traveller’s haven: The Merchant House, Bahrain

MANAMA, September 15, 2019

September signals the start of a new business season, meaning a return to daily routines and busy travel schedules.

The Merchant House, Bahrain’s first boutique hotel to be awarded a five-star rating, is enticing travellers to try something new on their next visit to Bahrain by offering a unique, personalised stay in the heart of Manama’s old town.

Situated next to Bab-el Bahrain Souk in the heart of Manama, less than 20 minutes from Bahrain International Airport, this luxury boutique hotel is the perfect base for business and leisure.

The hotel made its debut in February this year and has already scooped two coveted awards including the Boutique Hotel of the Year at the Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2019 by Hotel & Catering News Middle East, and the Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year at the LTG Africa and Middle East Awards.

The 46 all-suite hotel means guests can retire to their rooms to make use of the open-plan kitchenettes, dining and sitting areas providing plenty of space to set up your workstation and work in peace. For those who prefer a more social way of working, guests are encouraged to take advantage of the tranquil and intimately designed Library, stocked with more than 1,000 books - the perfect place to work, read or simply reflect.

Home to over 200 pieces of original artwork from both international and local artists, the ambience throughout The Merchant House is one of peaceful creativity and inspiration. Lone travellers are sure to be comfortable in the hotel’s cosy atmosphere, with travellers enjoying the in-house facilities at PureGray Spa to relax and unwind. The spa provides a range of bespoke holistic treatments for those looking to switch off after a long day of meetings.

The hotel’s glistening rooftop provides the perfect spot for a casual meeting or to unwind with a refreshing dip in the pool or a sumptuous meal at Indigo, the rooftop poolside restaurant. Helmed by Executive Chef Robert Shipman, the menu has been inspired by the chef’s travels across the globe and influenced by Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes.

The Merchant House has a uniquely charming and stylish way of creating the perfect atmosphere for both business and leisure. - TradeArabia News Service
