Just returned after 3 days of relaxation in the desert here at bab al shams. If you want some 'downtime' away from the hassle of Dubai this is the place for you - the hotel is in the middle of no where - so the option of full board is probably worth the extra The staff are wonderful from when...

The massage was very relaxing and masseuse was quite skill full. My only complaint would be that the oils used were not very... More

It was nicely and exotically decorated and the bed was so huge that it was not necessary to get an extra bed for our kid. The bathroom was quite big with... More
