Bahrain Harbour embraces the return of the Kempinski Hotel and Residences

Kempinski Hotels is returning to the Kingdom of Bahrain with a landmark hotel and residences in a striking new development in Bahrain Harbour. Europe’s oldest luxury hotel company has inked a deal with Infracorp, which currently has more than US $3 billion in assets under management. 

Kempinski Hotel and Residences Bahrain Harbour, will occupy one of three signature towers that are part of the mixed-use Bahrain Harbour development. The property will boast 74 guestrooms situated on the upper floors and an additional 186 Kempinski branded residences spread across the rest of the building, which is expected to open its doors by the end of 2025.

“This landmark development re-establishes our foothold in Bahrain and our long-standing commitment to the Middle East,” says Bernold Schroeder, Chief Executive Officer Kempinski Group and Chairman of the Management Board of Kempinski AG. “At Kempinski Bahrain Harbour, guests will discover a warm European welcome in a setting that reflects the riches of the Arabian Gulf; a modern and sophisticated environment set around a wonderful marina at the heart of Bahrain’s financial district. We are thrilled to be partnering with Infracorp on this prestigious project.”

Elegant and luxuriously appointed rooms and suites at Kempinski Bahrain Harbour Hotel and The Residences at Kempinski Bahrain Harbour, will be one of the highest towers in the Kingdom, offering elevated views across the marina and Manama skyline from floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies. The guestrooms and branded residences will feature contemporary style interiors with soft colours, marble features and wooden textures, with accented feature walls and brass fixtures.

  1. When you analyse this as an investment it’s a reassuring vote of confidence in Bahrain’s future as a business hub.

  2. Nice positioning so that the Kempinski guests get to use the leisure facilities around the other two towers as well. Sometimes when you’re on business and staying in a hotel it can all become too much of a claustrophobic bubble.

  3. A friend of mine runs a training business and she often uses Bahrain as a venue for events and conventions etc. So I can see where Kempinski’s coming from.

  4. It will be interesting to see the plans for the interior when they are finalised. Another post with some images would be appreciated.
