With 1,840 sq m of state-of-the-art meeting space, a rooftop ballroom on the 50th floor with breathtaking views of the sea and the city, the new hotel is also an ideal destination for weddings and meetings in Manama.

This one-of-a-kind location in Manama is undoubtedly the perfect spot to introduce our iconic brand to Bahrain, and we are delighted to have joined forces with such an innovative partner, Ahmed Mahmood Al Qaed, for this exclusive launch in the region. Adding Wyndham Grand to our growing portfolio of hotels in Bahrain demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that however visitors choose to travel, when they visit Bahrain there will be one of our hotel brands that meets their needs.”
