StayWell to open first Park Regis Hotel in Bahrain

Australia-based StayWell Hospitality Group is set to open the kingdom’s first Park Regis Hotel in Juffair district in partnership with Bahrain group VKL Group during the third quarter of 2017.

With 164 guest rooms, six food and beverage outlets including a 1000 capacity ballroom, swimming pool and gym, this upscale hotel is the perfect introduction to the Bahrain market for the Park Regis brand and its parent company StayWell Hospitality Group, said the company in a statement.

Based in Sydney, StayWell Hospitality Group, operates two high profile hotel brands – Park Regis and Leisure Inn. 

Together with strategic partners, the group has a combined network of 71 properties worldwide across 14 countries with a managed turnover close to A$300 million ($278 million). 

StayWell Hospitality Group CEO Simon Wan said the recent signing of the marketing license agreement with VKL Group, a major player in Bahrain's hospitality sector, will enable the group to open additional properties across Bahrain in the coming 12 months.

VKL Group operates several hotels in the kingdom managing with more than 1,300 rooms and is now working on another three hotels with over 600 rooms which will be open shortly. 

"Following the signature of a 550 keys Park Regis Resort in the UAE the day before, 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," remarked Wan.

"We are hoping that this magnificent property is the stepping stone for a further presence in Bahrain," he added.

VKL Group chairman Varghese Kurian said that formalising the partnership with StayWell Hospitality Group and opening the Park Regis Juffair in the last quarter of 2017 is the start of significant expansion in the Middle East. 

“We look forward to a long and successful partnership with StayWell Hospitality Group and are confident that we can move quickly with future properties under the StayWell Brands; Park Regis and Leisure Inn,” stated Kurian. 

On opening, the Park Regis Lotus hotel, which is located in the nation’s capital of Manama, will have easy access to Bahrain's largest mosque, the Al Fateh Mosque and the Bahrain causeway, which connects the Island country to Saudi Arabia.-TradeArabia News Service
