As Hilton Bahrain prepares to open its doors in Juffair in August. FACT has done some snooping and come up with 10 things you need to know about the island’s newest five-star venue.

  1. The accommodation is far from typical with 348 studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments each featuring a kitchen or kitchenette, spacious living room and a breathtakingly beautiful view of the sea from the balcony. So, guests get the luxury and privacy of a private apartment but with the facilities and convenience of a full-service hotel. From bespoke meeting rooms to the outdoor pool, gym, Wellness Centre and six distinct restaurants and lounges, Hilton Bahrain has everything you’ll need for both business and leisure under one roof.
  2. Three of those amazing venues will be available right away on opening day. Head to Lamar Café & Lounge for delectable pastries and cakes along with gourmet coffee and signature beverages. Or make a stop at Origin Kitchen and Culture. This gorgeous venue has a high ceiling designed to look like a starry sky. And, if that wasn’t enough reason to visit, there’s a huge open kitchen to whet your appetite as you watch the chefs at work. With an extensive international menu and grape list, you’re guaranteed palate pleasers at breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the evening, take a trip to Cocoluna, the uber-chic hubbly bubbly lounge where you’ll find gorgeous views, chilled music and genius mixology… what more could you want?
  3. Furry friends are welcome! This one is a big plus point for us here at FACT. We’re delighted to tell you that Hilton Bahrain welcomes the WHOLE family – yes, even your pets. From exclusive VIP pet membership to special amenities, treats and their own in-room dining menu—talk about pawfect!
  1. The interiors are gorgeous. Let’s face it, when you book into a hotel, you want to feel a bit spoiled and the décor and design at Hilton Bahrain go a long way to achieving that. The interior design took inspiration from the beautiful history of Bahrain with elements of black gold, aquamarine for its surrounding seas and the exotic shades of pearls. Local touches are in sharp contrast to a modern edge that gives an overall classy feel that tells you you’re visiting somewhere special.
  2. Another one that definitely gets FACT’s vote – they take sustainability seriously. Hilton Bahrain is a big supporter of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose, the company’s environmental, social and governance strategy to drive responsible travel and tourism. The hotel is committed to 0% single-use plastic, there are sustainable amenities, renewable energy and even some of the team members’ uniforms and footwear are made of recycled materials! Now that’s what we call sustainable!
  3. The views, oh the views. Did we mention that the hotel is 45-storeys high? That guarantees you fabulous views of the surrounding sea whether you’re in your room, the restaurant or even in the meeting rooms.
  4. Location, location, location. Hilton Bahrain is found in the heart of the country’s entertainment district, Juffair. Surrounded by restaurants, malls and other must-see places, whether you’re staying for a few days or planning to make this your home, you’re sure to have easy access to all your necessities any time of the day.
  5. Stay and earn. We love that you can earn redeemable points for every stay! Talk about a win-win situation. Hilton Bahrain is part of the world-famous loyalty programme, Hilton Honors. This means that while you’re enjoying your experiences at the hotel, you’re also racking up points for your next Hilton vacation. What’s not to like?
  6. Digital check-in. Keep losing your keycard? Well, if that’s you, there’s no need to worry. Hilton Bahrain offers digital check-in technology that allows you to use your own mobile to access your room. Smart, eh? They believe staycations are too short to be searching for keys and we couldn’t agree more.
  7. The warm hospitality of Hilton Bahrain’s team. With all the perks many hotels offer, at the end of the day what sets a hotel apart is the quality of service and hospitality they provide. Hilton Bahrain promises a genuine welcome to each and every guest with team members’ warm smiles and tailored experiences. Intrigued?
