Bab Al Shams features 4 restaurants serving traditional and international cuisine. The open-air Al Hadheerah Desert Restaurant offers diners an Arabian experience.

The Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is located about 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport and Dubai city centre.

Guest reviews

  • · I enjoyed the whole visit. The experience was calm and restful, just what was needed.

    Disliked · The archery was poor, we expected to be able to shoot arrows but there were not enough arrows to go round everyone and so I had to sit out two of the shoots. The equipment was poorly maintained and many of the arrows had missing fletches. This took away from an otherwise excellent break.

    Overall a great place for a family break.
  • · A vey calming place with exceptionally polite staff and food was excellent at the two restaurants Masala and Al Safa .Will highly recommend it for a short break.

    Disliked · some more evening entertainment

    a very relaxing stay and the property is well maintained.
  • Liked · Exceptional Customer service, even from the very beginning with Subin at check in, to Jamshaid by the pool and Tishan at the rooftop lounge we were absolutely spoilt.. Would highly recommend the hotel. The facilities and room were brilliant. We will absolutely be returning!
