Unwind at the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa in Dubai
Meaning gateway to the sun, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is located in the desert outside of the city. The low-rise hotel is only two stories high and resembles a fortress with imposing walls and large doors. The property's 113 rooms and suites have desert or garden views and chic Arabian décor.
The Bab Al Shams offers a plethora of luxury activities and amenities, including the Satori Spa, sunset yoga, camel riding, and falconry. The primary draw here is the secluded location, which has earned the hotel a following among harried locals.
Room to Book:
If you are booking a junior suite, request one with uninterrupted desert views to ensure the best vistas.
Insider Tip: Make time to relax in one of the hotel's infinity pools and take in the surrounding views.
