Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is one of the luxury hotels in the desert. Therefore, this resort is an independent travel destination where you can enjoy various services provided for guests. Previously we talked about all kinds of infinity pools, but here in Bab Al Shams, the infinity pool overlooks the desert and creates a sense of paradox!
Bab Al Shams Spa:
Other than the infinity pool, another thing this resort is proud of is Satori Spa with a range of treatments and rejuvenating massages. Satori Spa is an award-winning spa that provides services in which you can engage all your senses, relax, and unwind in a private treatment room. These rooms feature an astonishing view of the desert.
There are two packages: Satori for Him, including back exfoliation and a mud mask, a muscle release massage, a face and neck treatment using freshening plant extracts and essential oils; and Satori for Her, including their famous Balinese massage to warm muscles and relax the mind, a facial treatment, treatment for dehydrated skin, etc.
As enticing as it sounds, staying in a desert hotel is not about spa and relaxation services. Instead, you are staying there to experience and benefit from all the activities related to the desert. And this resort tries its best to give you the experience you want. Apart from all the views, landscapes, and tranquility in the desert environment, their special programs multiply all these feelings. One of these activities is outdoor cabana treatments, in which you get a delicate treatment service in the heart of the desert under a fantastic cabana.
Bab Al Shams Desert Activities:
The next popular desert activity is surfing it: you can choose to head out into the heart of the desert by Camel Riding, Horse Riding, and Fat Bike Riding. Don’t forget about 4×4 activities with special desert off-road vehicles. Also, you can engage in a Nature Walk in which they introduce you to “the hidden wonders of the Arabian Desert.”
The other range of special activities in the desert include: Desert Tennis in a beautiful surroundings and Al Forsan; Archery in a beautifully designed court to explore an ancient sport; and Falconry, which is an age-old desert tradition.
Bab Al Shams Kids Club:
Although the top reason people travel to this destination is the desert activities, they have paid particular attention to their dining options. Four luxury restaurants with local and international cuisine, and open-air Al Hadheerah Desert Restaurant with an Arabian experience, are the main options for dining. A shaded children’s pool and Sindbad Kids Club are distinct spaces for your kids.
Being in the desert provides a perfect location for Bab Al Shams to provide exquisite wedding and meeting packages. Each of these packages has its pros and cons. But overall, they provide a one-of-a-kind experience for you and your guests.
The prices for their basic Superior King Room start from US$450/night, and for the more luxurious Deluxe Suite starts from US$850/night with a private balcony and Majilis seating area.
