United Tower, Bahrain

From series “Twisted Spiral Buildings and Towers That Are Real”
In the city of Manama there is a unique 50-story United Tower, which looks like a huge drill. The skyscraper project is a result of the cooperation of large architectural companies Ahmed Al Qaed Construction and Cooperation Investment House. Many travellers know the skyscraper due to the Wyndham Hotel Group Hotel located in its walls.

The tower has been built on a specially created artificial island, which is located in one of the bays of Bahrain. About 2.5 billion US dollars were spent on the project. According to one version, the skyscraper that mimics a huge drill cutting into the ground, is designed to remind locals and travellers about one of the main values ​​of Bahrain - oil fields.

Besides the luxury hotel, which occupies 14 floors of the skyscraper, within the walls of the building there are offices of various companies. For travellers, one of the best ways to assess the features of a skyscraper from the inside will be accommodation in one of the elegant rooms of the Wyndham Hotel Group. All its rooms are equipped with panoramic windows, with a chic city view. On the last floors of the hotel there are attractive restaurants and bars, which will also be a great place to relax and admire the surrounding landscapes. To the beginning - Turning Torso
