About Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa
An exclusive low-rise resort in the desert surrounded by gently sloping dunes and natural desert landscape, Bab Al Shams offers guests a one of its kind traditional desert experience that is true to the culture and heritage of Dubai and the UAE.
With its literal translation from Arabic meaning ‘gateway to the sun’, Bab Al Shams is built in an Arabic fort setting in and around an oasis. Inside the walls, shaded courtyards, walkways and water features provide cool shelter and maintain the unique ambience and atmosphere.
Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the desert, adjacent to Dubai International Endurance City, yet is just a 40-minute drive from the city of Dubai and only 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport.
