Worth the effort to go and visit as it has history & good information even though it is in the middle of the oil fields!

Not worth the travel to reach the spot. Quite disappointing once you see the tree and wonder what the hype is all about.

This was a very fun afternoon drive on a Saturday. We enjoyed exploring a new part of Bahrain. The tree of life is a great place to meet and reflect. Not an all day trip, but a fun trip after breakfast and before lunch!

The tree is pretty much as described in other reviews, a large healthy tree in the middle of a large area that has little other vegetation (apart from scrub) around it. It is surrounded by a low concrete wall, and what looks like the start...More

For me it is a tree of endurance and hope. Thousands of admirers come to see this mysterious life in the desert. A symbol of life surviving the harsh weather. It holds a secret, a secret which is revealed only to those who are blessed...More

It was nice to see the Tree of Life, just for curiosity. It wasn't at all impressive, it's just an old tree that survived for over 400 years in the middle of the desert. The location is very remote, you will need your own transportation,...More

I love trees. Call me a tree hugger so visiting anything called the "Tree of Life" is right up my alley, especially a huge tree in the middle of no where. It's a fun afternoon or sunset activity but I would not make it a...More

Standing alone in the middle of desert for a period of over 400 yrs is a great phenomenon.It is a Prosopis cineraria tree on top of a sandy hill and no other “trees” could be viewed in the nearby visibility. The place has been recently...More

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.
