What to see

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa
Al Qudra Road, Opposite Endurance City

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is one of Dubai’s best kept secrets. Just 30 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city in the surroundings of the Al Qudra desert, the five-star desert resort is quite mystical and will leave you spellbound for its eternal beauty.

Once the unravelling desert roads lead you to the huge entrance of this earth shaded resort, you are greeted with a low-rise, Arabian-style fort set in the desert oasis, made up of villas inspired by Middle Eastern architecture which have been accommodated with all the modern facilities.

The hotel has over 100 rooms, and it seems that all the rooms have been designed keeping royalty as a prime focus. Designed with heavy wooden furniture and deep red drapes, the rooms look nothing less than a royal’s room. If you care a lot about the bath areas, then the bathrooms designs inspired by Moroccan architecture are sure to impress you.

Feeling hungry in the middle of the desert? The resort has eight restaurants offering traditional Arabic, Indian, Italian and international cuisines and amazing views. Go to Al Hadheerah for fine dining Arabian food, Al Forsan for international cuisines and some amazing views of the greens overlooking the dessert, Masala for authentic Indian curries, Le Dune for Italian pizzas, Al Sarab Rooftop Lounge for the most authentic, endless Arabic atmosphere and stunning desert views, Al Shuruq Rooftop Terrace for light bites, the pool bar for exotic beverages and Ya Hala - Lobby Lounge for morning coffees and social meets & greets.

Resort life by default calls for a spa session and the resort’s The Satori Spa, with treatment rooms, yoga areas, sauna, steam room and a maze of separate swimming areas will send you to your mystical world.

To keep the adrenaline rush active, the resort offers activities such as Land Rover desert safari, bike riding, bumpy camel ride, horse riding, archery, falconry and the list goes on.  Book your visit here for a classy taste of Arabic culture, hospitality, live food stations and of course a memorising desert play! Call 04-8096100.
