Bahrain Mall  

The profile of Bahrain Mall is unmistakable, designed in the form of a traditional, Arabic fortress. The interior is equally dramatic – no matter which entrance you use, your first impression is a symphony of water and fire, with soothing waterfalls and constantly burning torches atop magnificent columns. A tented ceiling and palm trees, complete the symbolic oasis.

It’s a family mall, catering for all ages and requirements offering food, clothing, hobbies and entertainment. Geant, the French anchor store, is a huge hypermarket selling everything a household could ever need from DVD players to denims to dairy products with value for money as a key concept running throughout the store – and indeed the mall. There are over 100 retail outlets and 30 kiosks and stalls offering perfumes, gift items, sweets and food…not forgetting the 17-outlet food court which has a traditional Arabic style café.

The post office counter on the ground floor offers shoppers the convenience of mailing postcards and letters.

Keeping up with the trends and times ensures Bahrain Mall continues to offer their customers a fresh and delightful shopping experience.

Dana Mall

A stone’s throw away, Dana Mall has an elegant exterior made from Jordanian stone which blends in perfectly with the desert landscape. It opened its doors in 2002, and its interior is a combination of exquisite stained glass ceilings and high domes. The mall offers a diverse shopping experience with a variety of fashion and  retail outlets.

Lulu hypermarket is the anchor store offering family shopping. The mall has many service outlets including car hire, shoe repairs, key cutting, optical, photo developing studio, and hairdressing.

The main evening attraction is the 12-screen, state of the art, cinema complex, where you can take in a movie, after dining at the mall’s 20-outlet food court or one of its nine other casual dining outlets and coffee shops, many offering wi-fi connectivity.

Chakazoolu, the children’s playground, has something for all ages including a hot air balloon ride, a jungle train ride and, only for the fearless, the only indoor high-speed rollercoaster in the Gulf. In the Chakabarber, kids can have a haircut and, to top it all off, enjoy face painting followed by a photograph at the Chakazoolu store.

Extensions plans will add flavour to the already interesting mix of retail, food and entertainment outlets.
