H stands for Horizon

The impressive silhouette in the form of an H of the Four Seasons Hotel takes up a prime spot alongside the coastline of Bahrain Bay since 2014. The design by the renowned American architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, reaches up to the horizons at 201 meter, making it the tallest building in the country. Its 50 floors offer 200 luxury rooms and 30 suits, all with a panoramic, 360° view over the Bahrain Bay and the village of Manama. It also offers a spa, several swimming pools and a floating, Michelin-star restaurant.

H stands for harmony

The Four Seasons owes its look to a variety of elements, which were added by the architects, but the interiors are equally impressive. Six Construct pulled out all the stops in order to produce the necessary elements to guarantee the harmony between the whole of the building and its finishing. Almost 20,000m² of marble was imported from Italy, Germany and Greece in six months’ time.

H stands for historic

A realistic analysis of the costs, a constant search for the best techniques, an efficient planning and meticulous quality checks guaranteed a timely delivery of the hotel. Six Construct only needed 29 months to erect this five-star hotel complex, which created 700 jobs for locals. This unique hotel is an important step for Bahrein tourism.

Italian marble and ebony from Indonesia: every material used was chosen with care.
