This deluxe property in Bahrain's diplomatic area mixes executive services with resort and spa facilities. The first hotel ones sees on crossing the causeway into Manama, the Radisson SAS Diplomat Hotel has a premium position with extensive views over the water. With a mainly Western clientele, both corporate and leisure, services at the hotel reflect Western interests and include a resort-style pool, a health spa including ladies-only areas, pubs and restaurants, a business center and a daily shuttle into the malls and the Souq. Accommodation is also top-rung -- rooms are spacious (apparently the largest in Bahrain) and have big picture windows that showcase the island's hazy blue horizon. Caf's, restaurants and shops are within walking distance and the Grand Mosque is only a couple of minutes away by car.
