Bahrain is one of the richest countries in the world, so it’s unsurprising that the setting for the first Formula One race in the Middle East is filled with luxury hotels, private beaches and marinas. This archipelago of 84 islands may seem out of reach for the traveller on a budget, but that isn’t the case. Find hotel deals in Bahrain with our handy guide – all of these are bookable directly with Culture Trip.
