A new One&Only resort is to be developed and operated by Kerzner International Holdings in Seef, Bahrain.

The resort is due to open from 2016 with 150 rooms and suites as well as villas, accommodation for large families and a spa.

The group’s ninth property property will be located on the northwest coast of Bahrain with a private beachfront.

Kerzner International chief executive Alan Leibman said: “More and more visitors are discovering Bahrain for both leisure and business and I am looking forward to introducing the resort to our loyal One&Only guests and new guests alike.

“The beachfront location is remarkable and I am very confident that the resort will define ultra-luxury in Bahrain.”
