Top Residential Towers in Amwaj Islands, Bahrain

The first and largest man-made island coalition in Bahrain


If you follow the shifts and changes that are taking in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region countries, then you probably have noticed a rising trend in real estate development; that is, many of the region’s kingdoms have been actively and extensively implementing land reclamation schemes and develop man-made islands that would accommodate their growing population and economic ambitions.

The Kingdom of Bahrain has been one of the first kingdoms in the Arabian Peninsula to resort to that solution, specially considering the fact that it is the region’s smallest state in terms of area; and Amwaj Islands come as the first completed project of that type in Bahrain.




Amwaj is a group of six man-made islands that are located in the north eastern corner of the Kingdom of Bahrain close to Muharraq island and 10 kilometers away from the coast of Manama, Bahrain’s capital city. With an area that sprawls over more than 4.3 square kilometers, Amwaj Islands is, by far, the largest project of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

With many high-end fancy amenities, splendid views of the gulf waters, and variant residential options that cater to all tastes, the islands are known for being one of the top luxurious spots in the island kingdom. As a matter of fact, it, along with Seef district, has the highest property prices and rental rates across all of Bahrain’s areas. But then again, expensive as it might be, renting or buying a home in Amwaj Islands does certainly pay off in terms of the unique and elegant lifestyle it provides.

Here, we take a closer look at three of the best residential towers in Amwaj Islands:
