Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 25 April 2014

Swiss-Belhotel is expanding its portfolio in the Middle East with the Swiss-Belhotel Seef in Bahrain, which will open in June, and a further two hotels to open this year in Oman and Saudi Arabia.

The company expects to have six hotels operating in the Middle East by 2015.

The 4-star 149-room Swiss-Belhotel Seef is located in Seef, a new business district on the island. The hotel will feature a rooftop bar and restaurant, lobby caf (Cafeccino), an all-day dining restaurant (Swiss-Caf ) on the 10th floor with a terrace, outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and meeting facilities.

Swiss-Belhotel International Chairman and President Mr. Gavin M. Faull said: "We are excited to be expanding in the Middle East and Bahrain is a very important market which we are delighted to be entering. I am confident our blend of efficient service, professionalism, spacious rooms - much larger than you would normally find in a hotel in this category - and high value rates will be popular amongst business travelers in the region."

The Hong Kong-based firm is in the midst of a period of expansion that will see 20 hotels open this year.

The hotel company will extend its range of two to five-star brands in the Middle East, where Swiss-Belhotel Seef will be joined this year by Swiss-Belinn Ghubrah Muscat in Oman. The hotels will join the existing Swiss-Belhotel Plaza in Kuwait and Qatar's Swiss-Belhotel Doha. In 2015, Swiss-Belhotel Erbil in Iraq and Swiss-Belhotel Riyadh in Saudi Arabia will open.
