Resembling a fort and blending into the desertscape, Bab Al Shams is a tonic for escapists seeking to indulge their Arabian Nights fantasies. Its labyrinthine layout reflects both Arabic and Moorish influences; the 115 rooms are gorgeous, spacious and evocatively earthy, with pillars, lanterns, paintings of desert landscapes and prettily patterned Bedouin-style pillows.
While this is the perfect place to curl up with a book or meditate in the dunes, those who enjoy a more active holiday will also find plenty to do. A wonderful infinity pool beckons, as do the luscious Satori Spa and eight restaurants. Children between five and 12 years old can make new friends in Aladdin's Kids Club. Off-site activities pay homage to Emirati heritage with desert tours, falconry, archery, and horse and camel rides. Bab Al Shams is about 45 minutes south of Dubai off Hwy E611, near Endurance Village.
Set among the dunes around Dubai, this 5-star luxury resort features an infinity pool overlooking the desert. The Satori spa offers a wide range of treatments, including rejuvenating massages. The Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is built in the style of a traditional Arabic fort. Courtyards with fountains, lush gardens and stone alleyways pave the way for elegantly appointed guest rooms, designed in a rustic Arabic style. Guests can explore the surrounding desert by jeep, horse or camel. Other on-site activities offered are archery, falconry and croquet. Young guests can enjoy the facilities of Sinbad's Kids Club or the shaded children's pool. Bab Al Shams features 4 restaurants serving traditional and international cuisine. The famous open-air Al Hadheerah Desert Restaurant offers diners a unique Arabian experience. The Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is located about 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport and Dubai city centre.
