MARASSI BEACH REVAMPED FOR ITS SECOND SEASON
- Beach operator appointed to manage an array of activities and services for the public including water activities
- Seafront promenade area to double in size
- Activities taking place at Marassi Beach to give visitors a taste of Marassi Al Bahrain’s vibrant lifestyle
Manama, 07 March 2017: Marassi Al Bahrain – a unique waterfront project situated in Diyar Al Muharraq – has announced the expansion of its seafront promenade with the appointment of Gulf Tandeel Bahrain as the managing partner for Marassi Beach. The outdoor lifestyle destination features two kilometres of white sandy beach, and is also host of Bahrain’s first food truck court, offering international and local flavours from independent businesses, plus a children’s play area and a joggers’ waterside walkway.
For its second season, the Marassi Beach seafront area has been revamped to offer new and fun activities for all ages, including beach volleyball, stand-up paddle-boarding, kayaking, sailing, yoga and fitness sessions, with instructors and lifeguards available at all times.
An additional area – which doubles the size of the current beachfront - will be home to brand new F&B outlets, housed in industrial-style containers, giving an urban atmosphere to the area.
Weekend events will also be regularly announced, including pop-up markets, outdoor cinema, children’s games and much more. The Little Island Market (LIM), a pop-up shop concept, is currently running until the end of January, supporting local and regional talent in a fun and festive setting.
All services and facilities will be of the highest standard and cleanliness, with daily entrance fees set at BD4 per adult and BD2 per child. Part of this cost is redeemable against sun loungers, umbrellas, towels, etc.
Daniel Hammond, General Manager of Eagle Hills Bahrain, said: “This announcement comes hand in hand with our expansion of Marassi Beach, to make it an island beach get-away destination with an urban feel, and of course a fully serviced beach area. After a tender process, we appointed Gulf Tandeel Bahrain as beach managing partners due to their long track record as facility and service managers all over the GCC region. Together we have created a place away from the hustle of daily life, where visitors can relax and have fun with something for every member of the family. Marassi Al Bahrain will promote a healthy and outdoor lifestyle with over 145,000m2 of outdoor space in the project when complete - and will truly offer one of the best lifestyles in the region.”
Mr. Mohamed Saadeh, General Manager of Gulf Tandeel, commented: “Gulf Tandeel Group handles large contracts in manpower and industrial cleaning, plus service and hospitality management across the Gulf region. Our client portfolio includes Hamad International Airport, Aspire Logistics, Qatar Development Bank and ASHGAL. We work as partners with our clients, and are proud to have taken the vision of Marassi Beach to fruition – it is rare to find a high end offering which is also urban and modern, however Marassi Al Bahrain truly embodies these qualities. We look forward to having the public visit the new expanded beach area and enjoying it in the great weather.”
