The award-winning 5-star luxurious Bab Al Shams Desert Resort is designed to resemble a fortified rural Arab village amidst the Dubai desert landscape.

Enjoy peaceful seclusion and efficiency altogether as we are located only 45 minutes from Dubai’s city centre, and in close proximity to off-site attractions like the Al Qudra man-made lakes and scenic cycling and camping spots. Being within the Al Marmoom Reserve, it’s also not uncommon to catch the abundance of native fauna wandering in the sand. Step into this reinvigorated oasis within the dunes, punctuated with redefining experiences for bold and freewheeling souls.

Our resort is opening in early 2023.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.
