Marriott International, Inc (NYSE:MAR) announced today that the Marriott Executive Apartments Manama, Bahrain ( will welcome its first guests on 28th November 2008. The apartments will be the first Marriott branded property to operate in Bahrain and is designed for extended-stay business travelers and long family holidays.

Strategically located in Al Fateh/Juffair, near to the diplomatic area, the city’s financial district, Bahrain International Airport and Bahrain International Investment Park, the luxury serviced apartment hotel offers 188 elegantly appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments overlooking the Kingdom skyline and Arabian Gulf.

General Manager Hossein Garan said the Marriott Executive Apartments Manama, Bahrain offers a high-end quality residence, a comfortable environment for both executives and families. “It is a truly home away from home, an ideal combination of home style living with the luxury services of a 5 star Marriott Hotel,” he said. “Bahrain is booming, with multi-billion dollar investments and mega projects in all sectors, particularly oil, technology and property. And we know that those investments will generate a specific market -- people who will relocate to Bahrain and spend considerable time here.”
