Spa & Leisure

The Satori Spa meanwhile is home to a range of facilities, including two treatment rooms, an outdoor relaxation area, an indoor relaxation area, a fragranced steam room, a sauna, outdoor yoga area and a tented massage area.

Hotel & Accommodation

Nestled into the dunes in the desert surrounding Dubai, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is surrounded by the most captivating of natural landscapes. The name means ‘gateway to the sun’ and certainly there couldn’t be a more apt description for this hotel, surrounded by the culture and heritage of a mesmerising Arabic world. Superior Rooms fuse heritage style and traditional comfort with modern facilities, wifi, tea and coffee facilities, a mini bar and luxury bathroom amenities all available as standard.

There are eight bars and restaurants at this resort, providing the most incredible array of options for meals including traditional Arabic, Indian, Italian and international cuisine. Choose from Al Hadheerah’s fairytale ambience for Middle Eastern food, Masala for decadent vegetarian Indian options, the pizzeria, the rooftop lounge, or even the pool bar for cocktails with a view of the desert.
