Where to stay in Zallaq

Accommodations in Zallaq remain limited, especially if you wish to stay in the town itself. Zallaq's resort hotel is spacious and luxurious, but if you are on a budget you may want to stay elsewhere. Luckily, Bahrain is not that large and you should be able to find plenty of accommodation choices in nearby Manama, only 20 km (12mi) away.
