Officials told Hotelier Middle East that the renovation will start on October 1, 2019. The entire property including guest rooms, conferences, meetings spaces, recreation facilities and public areas will be renovated.“The renovation is a key milestone for this iconic hotel in Bahrain and reiterates our commitment towards creating an elevated brand experience for our guests. The project is expected to be completed by 2021 and will require the full closure of the hotel,” a spokesperson for the hotel told Hotelier Middle East.
In a 2015 report, we reported that Sheraton Bahrain would be undergoing a renovation soon. The then hotel manager Thomas Flindt said: “There are infrastructure challenges as it is a 33-year-old hotel. Renovation will take place over the next couple of years but whether we are going to do it as a whole where we close down completely or in phases is still yet to be seen.”
According to reports, the renovation is estimated to be around US$40 million.
Sheraton Bahrain features 256 rooms and suites, with the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Beds and workspaces.
