Thailand-based, global hospitality company Dusit International has signed a hotel management agreement with Dar Al-Huda Hotel Apartments to operate Dusit Resort and Spa Lagoona Beach, an upper upscale beachfront hotel, resort and serviced residence, in Al Budaiya on the northwest coast of Bahrain Island.
Comprising 174 spacious, well-appointed seafront apartments, each with sea views, the family-friendly resort is situated approximately 20 minutes’ drive from Bahrain International Airport, and a five-minute drive from the King Fahd Causeway, which links Bahrain with Saudi Arabia. Bahrain’s major business sectors, cultural and historical attractions, and leisure activities, are all a short drive away.
Alongside a health and fitness centre with gender segregated spas and swimming pools, resort amenities include water sports, zip-lines, private islands, meeting facilities, a kids’ club, an all-day-dining restaurant, Da Rosa Lebanese restaurant, and a vibrant seafront restaurant serving Italian cuisine. A luxury villa complex with water park is also being planned.
Dusit Resort and Spa Lagoona Beach will be the second Dusit-branded property in Bahrain. It follows last year’s signing of dusitD2 City Centre Bahrain, which is slated to open by the end of the year.
In the MENA region, Dusit currently operates six hotels, representing a total of 1,786 keys. Alongside the two properties in Bahrain, nine more projects are in the pipeline and expected to open over the next two years across Ethiopia, Kenya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, and the UAE, bringing Dusit’s total number of keys in the Middle East and Africa region to 2,511.
