Wyndham Hotel Group Signs Management Agreement with Cooperation
Investment House SPC for the 260-room Wyndham Grand Manama

Currently Under Development in Bahrain with an Opening Planned by Q4 2013

MANAMA, BAHRAIN (October 16, 2012)
Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with over 7,170 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced plans for the first Wyndham Grand® property in Bahrain following the signing of an agreement with Cooperation Investment House SPC to manage its prestigious landmark building in Manama’s Bahrain Bay.

Upon opening, the hotel will join the Wyndham Grand® Collection, an ensemble of distinguished hotels within the upscale Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts brand.

Currently under development, the five-star Wyndham Grand Manama is expected to open by the end of next year with more than 260 spacious guest rooms ranging from 46 to 120 square metres (approximately 495 to 1,290 square feet). Covering 14 floors of a 50-storey mixed use development, it will also comprise 500 square metres (nearly 5,400 square feet) of meeting space and a 900-square-metre ballroom (equivalent to nearly 9,700 square feet) on the building’s top floor, offering stunning sea views. Complemented by indoor and outdoor infinity swimming pools and separate health clubs for men and women, the development will also include five food and beverage outlets catering to a variety of tastes.

“This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting development,” said Bani Haddad, regional vice president Middle East & Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group. “Each Wyndham Grand hotel takes in some of the flavour of its destination and this modern, cosmopolitan setting will be reflected in the hotel along with historical Bahraini influences. It is a fantastic setting and a great property for this distinguished collection.”

Bahrain Bay Development B.S.C. is a $2.5 billion waterfront district designed around vibrant neighborhoods of residential, commercial and retail spaces. Set in this unique new development, the Wyndham Grand Manama will face the World Trade Centre, just a short distance from Bahrain Financial Harbour, making it well placed to cater to business as well as leisure travellers.
