Al Sahel has announced the development of a new five-star resort on the southwest coast of Bahrain alongside pristine beaches and a range of entertainment, retail and conference facilities.

The resort is the first phase of the Al Sahel development, which is set to be completed within two years.

Khalid Al Rumaihi, chairman of Al Sahel Resorts said: "The unique location, as well as high degree of privacy, enable us to serve regional audiences looking for exclusivity.

"Being the first of its kind in Bahrain, coupled with the high quality and variety of services and amenities on offer, it will allow us to capture the ‘longer-stay’ segment of visitors."

The destination has 1.25 km of pristine coastline and will be set away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while being within easy reach of all of the Kingdom’s major tourist destinations and transport links.

It will feature both room and villa-based accommodation and a comprehensive range of entertainment and leisure options

These include restaurants, water features and sports, cinema, teen smart room, kids club, meeting and conference services, sports and spa facilities.
