1 April 2006

The Al Areen Holding Company hosted 33 Bahrain University students from the Collage of Libral Arts’ Department of MassComm, Tourism and Fine Art, led by Professor Yahya Abdul Ghader, at its Headquarters and Client Relations Center today, located the near Bahrain International Circuit and the Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve.

During the visit, Al Areen marketing officials briefed the students about the various tourism elements at the Al Areen development, which include The Banyan Tree Desert Spa & Resort, “The Lost Paradise of Dilmun” Water Park, and the recently announced Al Waha Resort and Domina Hotel & Resort engulfing the water park. The development will feature additional projects that will be announced shortly, including residential, commercial, hospitality, recreational, and entertainment facilities.

The students visited key construction sites, where work is well underway, and where the character of the area inside and surrounding Al Areen increasingly reflects both a landmark site and a place of retreat and recreation, making it all the more attractive for investors and consumers alike.

The concept behind Al Areen envisions transforming a unique desert plot into a diversified blend of health, residential, hospitality and entertainment conveniences that will cater to the growing demand for exclusive and creative real estate projects in the local market, and meet the requirements of regional and international tourists alike. The development aims to deliver luxury facilities of the highest standards, exceptional deluxe villas and apartments, world-class entertainment facilities, and will serve as an ideal setting for pleasurable visits, cultural excursions as well as business trips.

In July 2004, the Al Areen Holding Company was established as a joint stock closed company owned by Gulf Finance House B.S.C., and strategic regional investors and partners. Numerous individuals are working together as a team to bring to reality the vision of Al Areen. Further to the countless contributions from private and institutional entities, the strong backing from the government of Bahrain has shaped Al Areen into a prestigious development of national impact. Besides boosting the inflow of international visitors into Bahrain, Al Areen will significantly stimulate foreign investments in the Kingdom’s tourism sector.
