This beautiful resort is like nothing you have ever experienced in Dubai and is only a 30 minute drive from around the Sports City area

I love this resort as it is literally in the middle of no-where, surrounded by desert (NO high rise buildings) it really is the perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing retreat

The highlights:

Pools – with 3 main pool areas designed to look and feel like the roman baths, including rain showers, chair Jacuzzis and sun loungers available in the pool, you really are in heaven when it comes to cooling down from the hot Dubai sun. During the winter months this is also heated.


Pool Bar – Great selection of drinks, great service and it also has a section in the sun and a section that is in the shade! Perfect!

Food – Whether you want pool side food or a sit down meal in an al a carte menu you are spoilt for choice, and the price is not too steep either. There is also an inside buffet restaurant available if you want to relax and cool down while you eat.

Sunset – As each pool looks out into the desert and the incredible views, this is a perfect destination to watch the sun set and it can be incredibly romantic.

Camel Rides – As part of the resort they also offer you a FREE camel ride, ‘all part of the experience I say, even if camels are not one of my favorite animals!’ It’s a great INSTAGRAM picture

View & Surroundings – You are literally in the middle of the desert, you cannot see anything other than sand beyond the horizon. It is truly an amazing experience and should not be missed

As you can see I have many amazing highlights for this hotel and to be honest not many negatives at all:

Location & Taxi – One thing you should be aware of that they actually do not inform you when you arrive is that if you would like to arrange for a taxi to pick you up then you do need to inform the reception at least 1 hour prior so they can arrange this for you.

Overall I would highly recommend a visit to Bab Al Shams as you will not be disappointed 🙂
