It has been confirmed that the first Park Regis Hotel is opening in Bahrain later this year.
The Park Regis Hotel is scheduled to open for business in the Juffair district of Manama in the third quarter of 2017.
Simon Wan, the CEO of StayWell Hospitality Group, the parent company of Park Regis, said that the recent signing of the marketing license agreement with Manama-based VKL Group, which owns and operates a portfolio of hotels with more than 1,300 rooms and another 600 rooms in the pipeline, will enable StayWell Hospitality Group to open additional properties across Bahrain in the coming 12 months.
“I am encouraged by the future expansion plans into the region and confident that this partnership with VKL Group reflects our commitment to grow our presence in the Middle East Region. We are hoping that this magnificent property is the stepping stone for a further presence in Bahrain.
“I am confident that forthcoming projects between both groups will be a reality soon under the vision and leadership of VKL Group chairman Dr. Varghese Kurian.”
With 164 guest rooms, six food and beverage outlets including a 1000 capacity ballroom, swimming pool and gym, Wan believes it is the perfect introduction to the Bahrain market for the Park Regis brand.
