The Kingdom of Bahrain boasts a rich multicultural tapestry, scoring first place in the Arab world on the World Happiness Index 2022, first globally in the Expat Essential Index (measures the ease of setting up daily lifestyle services when settling abroad), and in the Low Language Barriers. Additionally, the cost of living is quite reasonable for students.
Bahrain is actively pursuing economic diversification as part of its Economic Vision 2030. For centuries, various
activities have been undertaken to harness Bahrain’s economic, resource, and tourism potential. The Kingdom’s
infrastructure in general and capabilities of tourism in Bahrain are constantly improving, contributing to the
country’s tourism growth. These efforts align with the nationalisation of resources and roles within the sector,
commonly referred to as “Bahrainization.” This initiative aims to increase the number of Bahraini nationals
employed in the hospitality industry, given its significance as a front-facing sector that interacts directly with
guests and visitors. Finally, Vatel’s involvement stems from its global reputation for excellence and quality.
