Citytrip: Bab Al Shams Desert Resort

‘This resort - its name translates as 'Gateway to the sun' is built as a traditional Arab fort in the desert. This hotel is an excellent match for those who wish to focus on peace and relaxation, spiced with some action.

The elegantly furnished rooms in Arabic style (37 m²) feature satellite tv, minibar, hairdryer, safe and bathroom with rain shower. The rooms offer views of the desert or the hotel courtyard. The open-air restaurant Al Hadheerah Desert serves authentic Arabian cuisine. The other 3 restaurants serve traditional as well as international dishes.

Why not discover the surrounding desert on horseback, camel back rides or during a pre-bookable jeep safari? Show off your skills during a game of archery, falconry or croquet, gaze at the awe-inspiring firmament of stars or participate in the evening entertainment. You may opt to let yourself be pampered in the spa or during a wonderfully relaxing massage... while your children safely enjoy Aladdin's Kids Club.
