Situated on a private island, the Four Seasons Hotel transforms the skyline of Manama, Bahrain’s capital city.
The 48-story structure offers 273 guest rooms and a penthouse-level “Skypod” restaurant, which has unparalleled views of the Arabian Gulf. The hotel also houses a high-tech business center and versatile meeting and events facilities, including a multi-use ballroom and banquet hall.
Designed to be as iconic as it is luxurious, the tower rises 201 meters above a reclaimed island at the center of Bahrain Bay, an expansive mixed-use development planned by SOM.
Bookending the structure are concrete monoliths that support a stack of glass-walled floors. Hotel rooms occupy the lower portion of the building, while a spa is located near its summit. The tower visually anchors this emerging waterfront district.
