Bahrain is to get its first Park Regis Hotel in a partnership between StayWell Hospitality and Indian-owned giant VKL Group.
The Juffair property will open in the last quarter of 2017 offering 164 guest rooms, six food and beverage outlets, including a 1,000 capacity ballroom, swimming pool and gym. The upscale hotel will be launched with a marketing licence agreement with VKL Group.
Simon Wan, CEO, StayWell Hospitality Group said Manama-based VKL Group is a key regional player which owns and operates a portfolio of hotels with more than 1,300 rooms and another 600 rooms shortly. This will enable StayWell Hospitality Group to open additional properties across Bahrain in the coming 12 months.
“We are hoping that this magnificent property is the stepping stone for further presence in Bahrain. I am confident further projects between both groups will be a reality soon under the vision and leadership of VKL Namal Group chairman Dr Varghese Kurian,” says Mr Wan.
“We are hoping for a long and successful partnership with StayWell Hospitality Group and we hope we can move quickly with future properties under the StayWell Brands Park Regis and Leisure Inn,” says Dr Kurian.
