Even if you can’t travel abroad this summer, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on taking a proper holiday.
There are dozens of amazing hotels in Bahrain, whether you’re looking for a private pool or a gorgeous beach getaway.
And luckily for you, plenty of them offer up discounted rates over the summer during the low tourism season.
Here, we’ve rounded up ten top staycation deals for you to try in Bahrain this year.
The beach at the ART Rotana in Amwaj Islands is one of our favourites in Bahrain, and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it if you book a staycation this summer. You can book a three-night stay in a classic room for BHD89, or six nights for BHD139. And if you’re after a shorter trip, rates for a classic room with breakfast start at BHD55.

The best part about staying in a hotel is waking up to a hearty breakfast before exploring. And for maximum convenience, you can enjoy dinner during your staycation at the Crowne Plaza Bahrain this summer for just BHD1 extra. Bargain.
