Jumeirah Gulf of Bahrain Resort & Spa will be located on the island’s west coast and offer 196 rooms and suites, as well as the 11-bedroom Gulf Summer House, which sits directly on the beach.
The design of the property is inspired by the ripples, waves and flowing waters of the Arabian Gulf, with rich blue tones and mother of pearl accents referencing Bahrain’s reputation as “the island of pearls”.
