While there’s plenty of great beaches in Bahrain - both public and private - sometimes you just want to be alone.
While you might have access to a pool in your apartment building, you can’t always guarantee there won’t be other people using it (unless you wake up at an outrageously early hour).
Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up the best hotels in Bahrain with private pools.
Read on for our picks.
Al Areen Palace and Spa
If you’re looking for over the top levels of luxury, you can’t go far wrong with Al Areen Palace and Spa. This hotel has 78 villas, each with their own private pool and open-air jet pool, meaning you won’t want to ever leave your room. If you do, Al Areen is also home to some great restaurants, including Asian spot Keizo.
Al Areen Palace and Spa, Al Areen (1784 5000).
Jumeirah Royal Saray
The Jumeirah Royal Saray is a great option for anyone bringing their family or friends along, as both the three and four-bedroom villas offer up private infinity pools. If you get sick of your own private pool (how could you?), the hotel also has a fantastic private beach for you to use.
Jumeirah Royal Saray, Seef (7770 7070).
The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain
This spot feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of central Manama, despite being located in Seef. The hotel’s private beach is gorgeous, and even has its own island, and there’s a huge pool for you to enjoy. If that wasn’t enough, the hotel’s villa has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and your own private pool.

Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa
The Sofitel Bahrain is well-loved for its huge beach and pool, but if you want to go all out, there are more than 25 suites offering up private pools too. And if that wasn’t enough, all of the private pools have a great sea view, too.
