We had our wedding reception at Bab Al Shams and we instantly felt at home. We didn't have to put effort at all as it was very well organized & the staff took care of everything we needed from A-Z, always on standby with a smile. The food was great special thanks to Chef Clive, shoutout to Princess and Ednalyn from Events team for being so patient with all the last minute changes, and for giving us the loveliest honeymoon room, Jason from the Pool bar who made sure we had the coldest beers, and everyone from The Bab Al Shams team who took care of all the little details. Check-in to check-out was a breeze!

We are truly satisfied, happy, and super thankful. Plus, each corner of this lovely desert resort getaway is just stunning. It's plain but elegant, cozy yet spacious, perfect for couples, families, or with a group of fun friends. We hope to come back soon!!

The hotel is so desert style not modern style at all, my kids loved the gazelles around the place. We had dinner in Al-Hadeera restaurant, the food was amazing amazing especially the grilled shrimps and the lamb. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. For the dessert you won’t find any cakes or cream caramel because it’s Arabic style so only Arabic sweets. I enjoyed the food a lot.

We appreciated our 2 night stay in Bab Al Sham which is not far away from Dubai City (45Min). The location does not offer too much but a very big and nice pool area in front of the desert. However its not a desert as people might expect with big dunes. Btw on the right handside of the panorama view you will spot the chain of street light. A bit disappointing was the 4 wheel drive session which we think is too expensive for the price you pay (around 1000 Dirham). We got 10% discount as we were carrying our baby with us and we just wanted so the dunes not to have some action. A silly guy followed us with his own car thinking he could manage driving through the desert by himself... not. He got stuck behind of us and we lost at least 15 min of our time until our driver was forced too help him out of this mess. Apart from this our driver Ali was a very experienced guide knowing a lot about the environment and local culture. I like his statement that everything in Dubai is artificial except of the sand. Best feedback we can leave to the kitchen which is just fantastic good (Indian Restaurant, Roof Top Restaurant and the main obe for breakfast). The main Restaurant offers a big selection of food, menues, ingredients you may choose from. The room was big enough, confortable and clean. We love the style how this resort was built (traditional sandstone like building)

I booked for 4 nights, an amazing and unforgettable experience ! Rooms were fantastic, authentic, extremely clean and comfortable. Pool facilities are clean and very nice. The pool service ( the people ) are just fantastic, they have really the right mindset and are very aware that people are their to enjoy. I can only express my gratitude and admiration for so much dedication! The hotel management can be proud with such employees.

Breakfast and buffet diners are great, an unbelievable variety of dishes and drinks. Prices are reasonable and fair. Again, the people are fantastic, superb service and customer oriented.

The Lounge bar offers a great variety of drinks, again perfect service, great atmosphere, fantastic music.

Our next holiday break will be without any doubt again in this resort! This is the perfect combination of luxury, comfort, service and dedication the quality of this resort is driven by the excellent staff and this makes it unique!!!
