Bab Al Shams, Dubai
Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is a group of Jumeirah International. It is located close by the Endurance Village, only 50 km drive away from Burj Al Arab, or 45 minute drive from Dubai International Airport.
Going to Bab Al Shams, seems like to have suddenly come to life in the middle of the dessert. The surrounding area is dessert without showing any sign there is a beautiful architectural place built to cater people who would love to escape from bustling city. Yes, I know, from the price is above average. But the quality of the place itself, service and after feeling when you leave the place is worth the money. And they usually give very good bargain in summer time.
Bab Al Shams is a Hotel and Resort right in the middle of the desert. We went there as part of a successful world record attempt organized by Mercedes Benz in Dubai. It was a 45-minute drive from Madinat Jumeirah to Bab Al Shams.
Over there they have a really nice restaurant, a horse racing track and a lot of different activities that you can spend your day on.
Overall a really nice place to spend a day off.
I love playing chess, but I've never tried lifesize chess! If you've never played, you might want to learn! Visit the Bab Al Shams resort (see my tip), and play a game!
