Novotel Bahrain Al Dana Resort, a luxury 4-star beachside hotel in Manama, announced it has started accepting payments in crypto after signing a payment services deal with Eazy Financial Services (EazyPay) of Bahrain.

The inking ceremony was attended by Amid Yazji, the hotel’s General Manager, and EazyPay CEO and Founder Nayef Tawfiq Al-Alawi, according to Zawya website.

According to the agreement, EazyPay will provide Novotel Bahrain Al Dana Resort with electronic payment services that include the acceptance of crypto as a method of payment to streamline its business operations and offer a better experience for customers.

Visitors of the hotel can pay for their residence period via the Binance App, regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain, making Novotel Bahrain Al Dana Resort the first Hotel in Bahrain and the Arab region to accept premium payments as crypto assets payments in a regulated, secure and fast way.

In this regard, the hotel’s general manager said: “Keeping up with the development of technologies, and our constant desire to provide our valued guests with the highest levels of service, we are thrilled to announce that we are the first hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region to use the latest digital payment technologies in partnership with Eazy Financial Services “EazyPay”.”

Moreover, Stc Bahrain, in December, announced that it would accept payments in crypto, marking the first telecom operator in the Kingdom to take such a step.

Licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain, Eazy Financial Services teamed up with Binance in September to make crypto payments acceptable in the Kingdom using Binance Pay at over 5,000 POS terminals and online payment gateways across the Kingdom.
