In the midst of the Arabian dunes in Dubai lies a five-star luxury resort called the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa. Bab Al Shams' literal translation, "Getaway to the Sun", is the perfect depiction of the ultimate indulgence in this resort whose interior is designed in a typical Arabic rural village in the middle of the Arabic dessert.

The main tower of the resort, where the reception area and the lobby are found, is designed in a sand-coloured style that compliments the breath-taking desert landscape surrounding the resort. Inside the Bab Al Shams, guests will be walked through the heritage and culture of the United Arab Emirates with the resort's traditional Arabic setting - from the interior, to the walls, staircases and other resort amenities.

According to the National Geographic Traveller, guests will also have a relaxing and magnificent view of the Arabian dessert with the private balconies and terraces in most of the rooms and suites of the resort that are flared with a rustic Arabian theme and textures.

The 115 rooms in Bab Al Shams, which are styled with iron fixtures and stone floors, welcome the guests with complimentary slippers and bathrobes, together with other easeful luxuries such as coffee makers, sofa beds, wired Internet that is totally free of charge, a satellite television, and room service that is readily available 24/7.

The hotel also has three outdoor swimming pools that are designed with a fusion of the traditional Arabic and modern architecture and displays. The infinity pool, children's pool and relaxation pool are perfect for guests who come with their families, with their significant other, and even those who are just travelling solo. In addition, guests can also avail of a full-service spa, sauna, therapies and exfoliation treatments for a total relaxation experience.

According to the Meydan Hotels, Bab Al Shams, which is located near the Dubai International Endurance City, is an ideal place to stay when you are going on a vacation in Dubai because this haven is just 40 minutes away from the center of the city. But if you deem it to just stay and enjoy in Bab Al Sham, the resort can actually arrange several outdoor adventures including the tourist-favorite 4WD desert drives camel riding just for you.
