History & Story
Where Middle Eastern culture meets a radiant love for life, Bab Al Shams is a go-to desert experience just 45 minutes from downtown Dubai, or 60 minutes from Dubai International Airport. Inspired by the limitless wonder of the landscape and the stories of its people, our one-of-a-kind-resort embraces elegant contemporary rooms and suites within distinctive modernist architecture. Gaze out over enigmatic desert panoramas or secluded courtyard gardens, with the option of a private terrace or balcony.
At Bab Al Shams, celebrate life with vibrant dining experiences and eclectic entertainment. Relax beside beautiful adult and family pools shaded by desert palms; surrender to mindful healing at the spa. From sunrise to sunset, fill your days with wondrous desert adventures – hot-air balloon rides, Arabian horse riding, camelback trekking, falconry, nomadic nature tours to Al Marmoom and more.
