THE Crowne Plaza Bahrain, located in the Diplomatic area of Manama, is within easy access of Bahrain International Airport.
Incorporating the Bahrain Conference Centre, the hotel is able to offer a comprehensive range of guest services and meeting facilities. The Conference Centre is the country’s largest, purpose-built conference centre offering superb facilities and catering in style for any size of meeting, from a small gathering of 10 delegates to conferences of 1,700. The mezzanine floor consists of three large boardrooms with an additional 4 meeting rooms offering capacities up to 60 delegates.
“The combination of the Crowne Plaza and the Bahrain Conference Centreoffer both a ‘first choice’ location and venue for all organisations operating within the Gulf region or wider Middle East markets to plan and deliver meetings and conferences,” says George Koumendakos, general manger of the hotel. “We have earned an unrivalled reputation for standards of service and professionalism in the planning and delivery of all our events. Our clients range from multi-national organisations, international event planners, overseas governments, trade associations, educational establishments and societies.
“The international business traveller and conference delegate is an important customer to us. Our new marketing strategy draws attention to their specific needs and levels of customer service expectation. Our printed literature, supported by our Global Sales team and regional direct mail programmes, combine together to provide the business executive with up-to-date information on the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Bahrain Conference Centre.”
The guest bedrooms, Club Floor rooms and spacious suites all reveal a modern setting, combining good taste with comfort, all with in-room safes, tea/coffee making facilities and satellite television channels. The newly-designed main entrance to the hotel opens into a spacious hotel lobby and the relaxing Cappuccino Cafe, where fragrant coffee and refreshing beverages are served throughout the day.
For the business traveller, the hotel offers a fully-equipped Business Centre with all the necessary amenities such as internet access, a private boardroom and video conferencing. Waves Seafood Restaurant offers the freshest and finest seafood in Bahrain. Set in an elegant atmosphere you can order from the menu or enjoy shopping from the fresh fish display.
La Mosaique, the hotel’s Mediterranean-style restaurant, offers uninterrupted views across the hotel garden and pool area to the Island of Muharraq. Each evening throughout the week a delicious choice of themed buffets are available to suite every taste pallete and love of international cuisine – Italian, Asian, Mexican as well as specialty seafood evenings.
Harvesters Pub provides the guests with its own very special atmosphere providing a combination of a lively pub style, with the comfort and relaxation of a cocktail bar. Food is served throughout the day with a wide choice of appetising snacks that can be ordered from the menu board.
For those of our guests who are more energetic and sports enthusiasts, Tracks Sport Bar is the perfect choice. Located next to Nautilus Fitness Centre with a well-equipped ladies and gentleman’s gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and massage facilities, Tracks, provides “big screen” entertainment of all the major international sporting events and tournaments. With juke box music, pool tables, bar and a healthy snack menu, Tracks is just the place to relax and meet up with friends when visiting Bahrain. If you are in a mood to relax the open-air pool, with kiddies a play area and padding pool is available.
With so much on offer, it is hardly surprising that Crowne Plaza Bahrain more than lives up to its claim of being “the place to meet”.
