We were there on a Saturday when there wasn't much traffic, so it wasn't a long drive from Manama. The location is well marked and there seems to be a steady trickle of tourists. The tree is remarkable; it's healthy and huge with long branches...More

Hard to believe that this tree has survived centuries without (?) water. The site is not very exciting and it is in the middle of nowhere but definitely worth a visit.

The Tree of Life is a place to visit if you are in Bahrain. Although lovely, it's not what I expected. I was expecting to ride through miles of desert and then behold a tree in the midst of no other signs of life. It's...More

The destination, the tree, was not special. But the way to get there was interesting : oil exploration in the desert.

I would say the Mercure or Swissotel or Grand Ellite . All are next to the Seef Mall, but their prices might vary. We have the real estate exhibition from next week so the prices might go up slightly.
