The Merchant House, part of the Campbell Gray Hotels group, and a luxurious all-suite boutique hotel in Manama, Bahrain, said it has started taking bookings even as it gears up for the property’s official opening next month.

The Merchant House is the latest addition to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) portfolio. A first of its kind in Bahrain, The Merchant House, is Campbell Gray Hotels’ debut property in the GCC, following on from the success of Le Gray in Beirut.

Located in the heart of the city alongside the vibrant Bab Al Bahrain Souk overlooking the city’s financial district, the hotel development is playing a significant role in the regeneration of the area and its immediate surrounds.

The luxurious, all-suite boutique property is set to become the hottest address in town. The Merchant House features 46 suites, each with an open plan kitchen and dining area, as well as open plan sitting rooms. Designed for both business and leisure, The Merchant House is one of the most interesting new additions to the charming city of Manama, said the statement from Campbell.

Its pivotal position alongside Customs House, which serves as the impressive entrance to Bab Al Bahrain – ‘Gateway to Bahrain’ – means that guests at The Merchant House will find themselves fully immersed into local Bahraini life as they are afforded the opportunity to enjoy a true taste of its culture and traditions.

The location places guests just steps away from the atmospheric Manama Souk, a maze of market shops selling everything from spices to souvenirs and home decorations.

At The Merchant House, the emphasis is on personalised service and individual preferences. Guests can be amongst the first to enjoy the authentic service of this unique hotel and take advantage of its introductory offer of BD99 ($261) for the first night and the second night complimentary. Reservations are now being accepted for arrivals from January 14.

The Merchant House joins Campbell Gray Hotels’ impressive line-up of luxury properties in Malta, Beirut, Liberia, and most recently, The Isle of Islay, Scotland.
