A key press conference on April 23 2017 at the Capital Club Bahrain witnessed the announcement of Bahrain’s first ever unique family-centric mall concept, Mall of Dilmunia. The press conference was led by three key speakers – Shaikh Khalid Bin Mohamed Al-Khalifa, Chairman Dilmunia Mall Development Company B.S.C.(c); Mr. Mohammed Khalil Al Sayed, CEO Ithmaar Development Company; Shaikh Mohammed Bin Duaij Al-Khalifa, CEO Dilmunia Mall Development Company B.S.C.(c).

The Mall of Dilmunia is a unique mall concept located in the heart of Dilmunia Island, within the Muharraq Governorate.

The total built up area (with a spacious underground Car Park) is 125,000 and a Gross Leasable Area is 47,300 sqm and has received interest from retailers and renowned F&B outlets across the MENA region.

It is a balanced representation of modernistic and futuristic architecture, and promotes an exciting family oriented ambience within it. The mall promises to include a variety of retailers that are yet to enter the Bahraini market and to develop a quality entertainment, leisure and retail destination, which adds value to the mall’s tenants and guests. The vision for this development is to promote a comprehensive family destination that caters to all age groups and genders. It allows children and young adults to engage in fun and educational entertainment facilities and activities with rooftop cafes, delicious food and beverage outlets and two atriums to engage with for events. The mall overlooks a beautiful canal view and a lush green landscape that is also complimented by greenery within the mall. One of the main family entertainment features include a spectacular 16m high cylindrical aquarium with aquatic life that will mesmerize visitors from each level of the mall and a state-of- the-art large indoor Ice Rink built on the first floor, and three more concepts yet to be revealed.

The main contractor for the project is Cyprus Cybarco Tabet JV W.L.L. and the international architectural design is by DP Architects. The contractors have begun mobilizing resources on site. The target opening date is October 2019. While the target dates to hand over the units to the retailers is scheduled 6 months prior to the opening date.

“Under the vision of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier; the Kingdom of Bahrain is historically and culturally rooted in family values and therefore is to be developed as an island for family tourism this year forward. Mall of Dilmunia has been conceptualized with this vision in mind, to bring families together and allow them to bond through a comprehensive solution thus making it a family destination.’ Said Shaikh Khalid Bin Mohamed Al-Khalifa, Chairman Mall of Dilmunia.

Mall of Dilmunia will be redefining the shopping experience in Bahrain by adding urbanity to the retail experience through the development of a Boulevard. It provides visitors with the illusion that they are outdoors within a vibrant European cityscape. The open-air sky terrace allows visitors to take in the breathtaking view of the island of Muharraq and indulge in the finest eateries. The terrace is to also include a beautiful mosque, which further emotes a balanced representation of Islamic family values, culture and lifestyle.
