Where to stay in Saar

Aside from some apartment rentals in Saar, the residential area has little by way of traditional accommodations. The most popular option with international tourists remains staying in Manama and traveling to areas such as Saar on a day trip (about a 30-minute drive away). The capital offers the largest and most varied selection of accommodations, with plush landmark hotels in the northwest beach area, and plenty more basic hotels and guesthouses available farther to the east, close to the city center.
