Eagle Hills Diyar, developer of urban waterfront project Marassi Al Bahrain, has signed an agreement with Emaar Entertainment to bring a family entertainment centre to its Marassi Galleria shopping and lifestyle destination in Bahrain.
The 13,200 sqm centre marks the first major leisure & entertainment (L&E) attraction by Emaar Entertainment in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and is set to become the largest entertainment element of any mall in the country.
Emaar Entertainment’s portfolio includes KidZania® Dubai, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, Dubai Ice Rink and Reel Cinemas in Dubai. More information on the exciting elements of the entertainment centre will be revealed with the official launch of Marassi Galleria.
Dr Maher Al Shaer, managing director of Eagle Hills Diyar, said: “This is unlike anything that can currently be found in Bahrain; and we are proud to have Emaar Entertainment give us a venue on par with the quality of the rest of the Marassi Al Bahrain destination.”
Maitha Al Dossari, CEO of Emaar Entertainment, said: “The agreement with Eagle Hills, which aims to bring world-class leisure attractions to Marassi Galleria, marks our first international expansion in the GCC, and underlines our competencies in creating premium entertainment destinations that add economic value.
“Marassi Al Bahrain is a world-class destination that redefines urban living and through our partnership, our goal is to offer visitors and residents exceptional lifestyle choices for all members of the family.”
Marassi Galleria will be linked to two luxury hotels and serviced residences projects by Emaar brands the Address Hotels + Resorts and Vida Hotels and Resorts.
Spanning 875,000 sqm, Marassi Al Bahrain is being constructed on the northern shores of the master planned ‘new city’ of Diyar Al Muharraq.
