Who needs a resort map to hand when you can float around your setting on a private Abra boat tour, gently following the ebb and flow of the on-site canal.
It’s a great way to start your stay and there are plenty of options for what to do next. Will it be one of the five pools, the spa and beauty treatments or perhaps something a little more energetic such as tennis, squash or a trip to the fitness centre.
Or maybe you fancy a couple of hours out the sun, there is a luxurious 36-seat cinema here showing family favourites and the latest blockbusters.
For younger guests, there is a separate pool and professionally run kids club, while parents might enjoy massages or a nightcap with views to the Arabian Gulf.
And, in this tranquil retreat on the south-west coast of Bahrain, there is one other must-see item. The white sands and near transparent waters just a few metres away. Enjoy water sports, or simply soak up the sun listening to the gentle lapping of the waves.
