So they Say…Old Is Gold

The Gulf Hotel has always been known locally for its quality of service as well as the diversity of its products; after all we were the first five star hotel on the Pearl Island.

The original Gulf Hotel was built right on the beach, just a stone's throw away from the waters of the Arabian Gulf and it featured 150 rooms. However, after numerous reclamation projects around the area, the Gulf Hotel Bahrain now rests in the heart of Manama.

Nevertheless as the surroundings of the hotel started to develop, so did we; the 44 year old Gulf Hotel now features 357 Hotel Rooms & Suites which makes us the largest hotel when it comes to room capacity on the island, together with 97 residential apartments that come in a variation of 1, 2 & 3 bed configurations. All of this guarantees that we meet the needs & expectations of both our existing and potential customer base.
