Beautiful and unforgettable experience

The pool, the lounging area, the bed
I stayed at Bab Al Shams alone, which was a great experience to relax away from the city and life's concerns. If you are taking a taxi, I learnt from the staff that the best places to take a taxi to and from is from Internet City Station or Mall of the Emerates. The resort has wonderful places to relax: the gigantic pool, the lounging areas, the beautifully decorated rooms and large bath, or on top of the building to watch sunset on the desert sand.

Amazing stay at Bab al Shams Resort

Amazing staff with exceptional hospitality and manners. The view was sensational and breath taking. Horse and camel riding.
Best stay ever. So relaxing and the views of the desert and wildlife in their habitat was amazing. Hour long horse and camel rides in the open desert after sunrise and at sunset was the most breathtaking experience to have. Best pasta I have eaten and their lemon and mint juice is amazing. The staff at Bab al Shams had the best hospitality and manners and truly went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasurable and comfortable as possible. Was so sad to leave.

Extraordinary Desert Experience

1. the ambience and decor are excellent with every little detail that sounds. 2. Free Falcon Experience everyday. 3. Dinner, atmosphere, show and sheesha at Al Hadheerah were fantastic!
We were travel by car in this trip. It was about 1 Hour 15 Mins driving to Bab Al Sham from The Plam. We arrive there at night with limited street light, it just like a cool night safari. Anyway, it definitely worth the long travel from down town in order to enjoy the unique experience and quality standard offered by Bab Al Sham. Highly recommend to everybody who really like the Arabian design and living style.

A must stay for anyone visiting Dubai

Luxury, Pool, Staff
Unbelievable. Ever seen Aladdin? This place is like the palace in Agrabah!! Like something out of a dream. The room was so incredible. Stone carved bathroom and bath with a giant bed. There were even stuffed dates and fresh fruit. We went for our honeymoon and they went over the top with candles and rose petals in the bath. They even gave us a congratulations on the wedding card. I nearly cried. we felt so special. The pool was so relaxing. Get Anthony by the pool to make you a cocktail (or 10). We highly recommend the 1 hour sunset camel ride. The memories we made in this beautiful resort will last a lifetime. Thanks to everyone there for making our stay so perfect!!
