    True Hospitality Amazing Experience

    We loved our stay at Bab Al Shams. The staff was so kind and helpful. They anticipated our every need and they addressed us by name. I was most impressed. The food was delicious. The breakfast buffet gave us a chance to try Emirati dishes and we all loved the smoothies. The Indian restaurant was our favorite! The extra activities let us experience the desert. We did the desert drive, camel riding and falconry. The guides made the experiences even more memorable. he rooftop bar, the shisha, the service, the man playing out in the sunset, the food, the dining area under the stars - Everything gave an amazing feeling. It is almost an hour drive from Dubai and it's quite expensive, but it's absolutely worth going there.

    Special Place

    A very special place and an experience that we will never forget. Service with a smile, great food pool,spa and amenities to make you feel relaxed and at peace in the desert. The staff were amazing and catered for ever little detail on our stay. Highly recommended and if you want to experience something different when in Dubai, then this ticks all the boxes. A big thanks to all the staff for looking after us, The best team! Amazing resort with arabic architecture and traditional atmosphere. Well located with a short trip from Dubai, this is the ideal place for a weekend. The facilities are well maintained and clean, the staff is helpful and kind, the rooms was huge and the toilet simply excellent. The breakfast has a good variety and the quality is very good. The only weak, are the prices the beverage are overpriced even for UAE reality and the dinner selection on the Iftar was disappointed for the price paid. Anyway, this is a good place to have a first contact with the desert.

    Fabulous Resort

    This is a wonderful place to spend! Everything about the resort is beautiful, the staff, the amenities, the food the pool. If you need a gluten free diet the care that all the resort staff go to is amazing. The food that I have eaten has been superb. The pool is gorgeous. I cannot recommend this resort too highly, it is well worth the drive which is only maybe 50 minutes from central central Dubai. Overall good place to stay for families and friends, who want to stay closer to Dubai. Ideally a 30-45 min drive from the airport. Suggestion to the Hotel, please also increase the Menu list for vegetarians also in terms some vegetarian barbecue items, Indian Vegetables Main course which will go well with the Indian market.
