Traditional arts meet modern architecture in this striking Manama getaway
A totem of contemporary Islamic architecture, The Merchant House is a sophisticated, ultra-modern getaway in Manama's famous Bab al Bahrain area. With dramatic archways at every turn, you're immediately greeted with a sense of airy grandeur. Boasting urban chic suites, this is your slice of solitude amongst the vibrant, bustling streets of downtown Manama.
The elevated spaces are where this hotel really shines. The rooftop pool and gym allow for leisurely workouts, with the bar and main restaurant also situated on the roof. Enjoy browsing the carefully curated library that overlooks the lobby, or curl up on a cosy sofa in your spacious suite. And, just like the colourful markets nearby, the hotel interior is ablaze with local treasures. With local art featuring on the walls and textiles, you're given a stylish introduction to the creative talent in the area. All this before you even step outside into Manama's markets.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
