The storied location of the ancient Dilmun empire and home to the epicentre of the Gulf's pearling past, Bahrain has a history to reflect on with pride. Bahrain has a long and rich history that dates back to at least 5,000 years ago, at which time the region served as a trading centre between Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley. Boasting its own Formula 1 Grand Prix, a growing art and foodie scene heavily cross-pollinated by Manama's huge expat population, and a wealth of activities enjoyed on the azure waters surrounding this collection of islands, Bahrain will appeal to travellers who seek an unpretentious, yet confident country bearing all the hallmarks of a modern, wealthy Gulf nation. This multilayered and multicultural destination is capital of pearl diving and known as land of two seas. Sofitel Bahrain has the advantage of being surrounded by Bahrain's national landmarks such as Bahrain International Circuit, Gravity Indoor Skydiving, Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve and the Lost Paradise of Dilmun Water Park.
By taxi 38km from Bahrain International Airport, it takes approximately 35 minutes to reach the hotel by taxi from the airport.
