Reef Island, Manama

4.0
Reef Island represents a mixture of a cosmopolitan city and a tropical getaway. The island is in the heart of the city, and represents a place of luxury and relaxation for both its residents and visitors. Shop in the boutiques, rest in the spa or theater, and have a drink or a meal in one of the cafes and restaurants. The island also sports a hotel resort, a yacht club, and a marina. Consider visiting during the weekdays, as it can get crowded on weekends. Reef Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Manama Edition.

    A very nice, quiet and secure residential area. It has a few restaurants by the marina and a convenience store where you can just call for small grocery needs. The area is very clean with a running path. Very family friendly.

Where to stay in Manama

Manama waterfront areas boast many hotel chains playing a game of one-upmanship to see who can get higher and more luxurious than the rest. The Modern and Post-Modern skyscrapers contain luxury hotels with onsite malls, swimming pools, spas, and fine-dining restaurants. Look farther inland for simpler hotels, as well as rental apartments, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in the residential, older districts.
