In the heart of the desert, amidst gentle dunes, lies the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort. The "Gateway to the Sun", as the Arabic name translates, is an exclusive luxury resort in the style of a traditional desert fort. Here, discerning travelers can enjoy Arabian-inspired luxury at its best, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A shuttle service operates between the resort, Wild Wadi Water Park and Souk Madinat.

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort is a desert resort built in traditional Arabian style with the luxury of a royal residence. A mighty mud wall surrounds the resort, which is modeled after a Bedouin fort and protects the lush green gardens inside from the hot desert wind.

Scattered in a paradisiacal palm grove are the 16 two-story buildings that house the rooms and suites of the luxury resort.

Culinary delights are offered in four restaurants and four bars. The Al Hadheerah restaurant, for example, is modeled on an Arabian market. Under the open sky, several open kitchens are grouped like market stalls around a central square with comfortable seating and an open fireplace. Enjoy traditional Arabic cuisine with a modern touch here. There is also an Indian restaurant, an international restaurant, and an Italian restaurant.

On the Al Sarab Rooftop Lounge you can enjoy drinks, snacks, or the mild aroma of a Shisha water pipe, while your view sweeps over the vastness and openness of the desert. In addition, three elegant bars await you, one of which is also accessible from the water as a pool bar.

The rooms of the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort are furnished in the traditional Arabian style and offer modern comfort, which leaves nothing to be desired.

Superior rooms - approx. 37 m², the rooms in Arabian style are located on the upper floor of the double-story bungalows. From the balconies of the rooms you have a view of the desert or the garden, depending on the location. Amenities include bath/shower/WC, hairdryer, bathrobe, slippers, TV, radio, telephone, internet, iron, air conditioning, minibar, coffee/tea maker and safe.

Deluxe Room - about 47 m², these rooms are located on the ground level and offer a combined bedroom/living room with a cozy sitting area. In addition, each room has a private terrace, depending on the location, with a view of the desert, the garden or the pool. The furnishings are the same as the Superior rooms.

The Satori Spa at the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort is an elegant oasis of relaxation where you can experience Balinese wellness at the highest level. After a day in the desert sun, indulge in nourishing skin treatments, relaxing massages, and harmonizing beauty rituals.

These are offered in a total of four treatment rooms. In addition, a steam bath, sauna, wellness showers, one indoor and one outdoor relaxation room, as well as an open-air yoga studio are available to you here.

The luxury resort offers jeep tours through the desert, as well as rides by camel and on horseback. Exercise concentration and strength in archery. Be instructed in the art of falconry. Sunrise yoga classes and personal training keep you fit.
