“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Majid Al Futtaim Properties as we debut our Westin and Le Méridien brands in Bahrain,” said Michael Wale, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. “We have a long presence in the country, dating back to 1981 when we opened the Sheraton Bahrain Hotel. We look forward to expanding our footprint here with the launch of these two distinct lifestyle brands later this year.”

George Kostas, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said: “We are very pleased with today’s announcement and welcome the addition of these two new brands into our portfolio. We believe they will add significant value to our offering in Bahrain and will further strengthen the position of our 11 hotels across the region.”
