Bahrain’s GFH rebrands flagship project to ‘Harbor Heights’

GFH Properties, the real estate arm of GFH Financial Group, has announced the rebranding of one of its flagship projects — the Villamar development — to “Harbor Heights.” The change comes amid the continued upgrading and strong advancement of the project whose progress has been recognized at the recent holding of the Ministerial Committee for the Development and Infrastructure Projects by Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al-Khalifa, deputy prime minister of Bahrain, who applauded GFH for its commitment to finishing the project and achieving the further transfer of units to owners. 

The “Harbor Heights” name has been selected to better capture the landmark development’s prime harbor location and in line with the significant enhancements that continue to be made to the project, bringing its value proposition and market positioning to new “heights.” 

With the upgrades made to the development, “Harbor Heights” is set to emerge as one of Bahrain’s most advanced, luxury mixed-use residential, retail, hospitality and leisure complexes. The property is spread across 35,900 square meters, featuring a built-up area of more than 250,000 square meters. 

Harbor Heights includes five main elements namely: The Three Twisting Towers, Lifestyle Apartments, Terraced Villas, Terraced Podium and Sky Villas. Featuring advanced engineering and architectural designs, the project consists of one- to five-bedroom apartments. Some of the key facilities include a super penthouse, health club and spa, swimming pools, manicured gardens and several recreational amenities. 

Shaikh Hamed Al-Khalifa, CEO of GFH Properties, said: “We’re extremely pleased to announce another major milestone for this iconic project and the unveiling of a new brand ‘Harbor Heights’ that better encapsulates the essence of this project and the world-class lifestyle destination that we are establishing. Already designed to the most exacting standards, we continue to make strong enhancements to the project ensuring the delivery of Bahrain’s most luxurious, dynamic and sought-after residences and retail and hospitality complex.

“With over 150 residential units handed over in the completed Tower B, we continue to show our commitment to delivering value to buyers, investors and our partners. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the government of Bahrain and in particular Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al-Khalifa and the Ministerial Committee for the Development and Infrastructure Projects for their tremendous support for the project and their efforts to help us bring to life another major center for business, leisure and tourism in the Kingdom.” 

Show apartments, which have been upgraded and furnished,, are ready to view with a limited number of units still available to purchase with GFH’s 5-year payment plan.

LuLu stores in Saudi Arabia launch Indian food festival

  • The week-long event, in celebration of India’s Independence Day, features about 2,000 products

LuLu Hypermarkets is celebrating India’s Independence Day, which falls on Aug. 15, with an Indian-themed food festival across its stores in Saudi Arabia.

The week-long promotion, which continues until Aug. 18, features about 2,000 Indian products, including organic groceries, fresh foods, ethnic delicacies and desserts.

“We are trying to showcase the versatility and diversity of Indian food products handpicked by our well-spread supply chain in India and across the world,” said Shehim Mohammed, director of LuLu Hypermarkets Saudi Arabia.

The proximity of India to the Kingdom means that more fresh products arrive regularly, he added, most of which are flown in to maintain their freshness “as we move closer to a farm-to-fork concept in (the Kingdom), featuring both locally and internationally sourced ranges.”

As Saudi Arabia gears up for the start of the new school term, LuLu has also launched its back-to-school promotions.
