Location of Seef

Seef (Arabic: السيف‎) is a suburban neighborhood in Manama, the capital city of Bahrain. The word 'seef' means coast or shore in the Gulf Arabic lexicon, similar to 'sahel'.

Seef is a result of active land reclamation work starting in the 1980s, which has dramatically changed the Bahrain coastline. Surrounded on three sides by the sea, Seef is a new zone of reclaimed land containing luxury apartments,[1] hotels[2] and shopping malls.[3]

Rents in Seef are reportedly the highest in the entire country.[citation needed] Seef is fast developing into a business centre with many local and multinational companies building their offices in the area. Seef is the location of the Almoayyed Tower, which was the tallest building in the country. However it has been overtaken by many other structures since 2005 such as the Bahrain Financial Harbour.
