Hilton Bahrain welcomes its first Bahraini national to its management team

Hilton Bahrain, an upscale new hotel and residences, expected to open in 2022, welcomed its first Bahraini national to its management team.

Somaya Ali brings 10 years of her expertise in hospitality and will be heading the hotel’s government relations. With a diploma in Human Resources and a background in Dubai tourism, Somaya decided to move to the hospitality industry in Bahrain to make a difference in her own country. She is a passionate leader and dedicated to creating a great working environment for all talents.

Tamer Farouk, General Manager, Hilton Bahrain, said: “It’s an honour to welcome Somaya to our family. She is the first but definitely not the last. Our team is committed to support local talent as part of our strong commitment to diversity and our community. I believe Bahrainis have an important role to play in the hospitality sector of their country, and we are determined to open the door to these talented individuals and nurture them to grow with us.”

Commenting on her new role with Hilton Bahrain, Somaya said, “I’m ecstatic to be part of Hilton Bahrain and to lead all the activities relating to the government. I also feel very honoured, being a Bahraini myself, to lead this project of promoting job opportunities in hospitality to Bahrainis.”

Hilton Bahrain is partnering with the Ministry of Labour to organise recruitment activities scheduled early next year, which will open a wide array of opportunities across different functions of the property to Bahraini talent.

Somaya, together with the rest of the Hilton Bahrain team, will lead the opening of this 348-room hotel, featuring studios, one and two-bedroom apartments, 6 distinct restaurants and lounges, 9 meeting rooms, and a luxurious spa, marking their spot on the already booming hospitality industry in the country.
