An austere fortress amid desert dunes - inside the thick tan walls and heavy doors of Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, you might just forget you're south of the hectic city of Dubai.

Enjoy rich local fare beneath billions of stars when you choose the Arabian Nights dinner.
Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is admittedly quite secluded, standing alone in the silent desert. In sharp contrast to most luxury resorts crowded near the coast and around Dubai, this resort offers tranquility and a uniquely self-sufficient vacation stay.

While many resorts around Dubai target visitors, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa frequently wins the favor of upscale locals who need to escape.

With five restaurants and bars, an extensive water sports center (with lap pool, fountain, rainforest area, waterfall, and even a man-made beach area), stables, and camel riding, it's likely time will fly past before you even think about leaving the property.

It's in your best interest to make time for the resort's desert explorations. Take a jeep, horse, or camel out onto the dunes, or watch the scheduled falconry shows, which are guaranteed to make you glance twice at any overhead birds once you get back home.

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is situated somewhat more inland than its beachfront competitors, about six miles from the coast of the Arabian Gulf. However, this hasn't stopped it from winning several awards for its amenities and onsite facilities. The international airport is approximately 45-minutes away by car.
