Bahrain: Campbell Gray Hotels will open the 47-key Merchant House in Manama in September.
Situated next to the Bab el-Bahrain Souk, the hotel development coincides with the area being regenerated, re-establishing the prominence of the old Souk and original heart of Manama. The Merchant House will be an all-suite boutique hotel with 47 suites in total, each featuring an open plan kitchen and dining area, as well as open-plan sitting rooms.
Artwork will be a prominent feature of the interior design and Gordon Campbell Gray, founder of Campbell Gray Hotels, has, over the past year, been putting together a collection featuring established Bahraini artists as well as new and upcoming young talent from both Bahrain and the region.
The rooftop will host the main restaurant and the bar, along with a rooftop pool and a gym, as well as a small boardroom for meetings and private events.
“We are so looking forward to bringing our special brand of hospitality to Bahrain this year with the opening of The Merchant House in Manama. We are confident that with its central location, beautiful facilities and comfortable all-suite accommodation it will be rather special, and we are eager to welcome our first guests through the door,” said Campbell Gray.
