Architecture of Bab Al Shams resort

Nestled within the glistening golden dunes of the desert on the outskirts of Dubai, the iconic Bab Al Shams Desert Resort opens under the Rare Finds vertical of Kerzner International, welcoming guests from February 2023.

The resort, a cathartic narration of the Middle Eastern culture radiant with life, adventure, and joyful human connection, is the original immersive desert experience in Dubai. Arabic for “Gateway to the Sun,”

Bab Al Shams’ architecture and interior design were inspired by the earthly tones of the desert throughout the day, illuminated by the sun and the moon.

The resort blends seamlessly in the surroundings with 115 lavish rooms and suites housed in 16 two-storey buildings. A modern oasis, the resort is reimagined as a relaxing haven with a subtly Moorish accent.

Presenting guests with one-of-a-kind vibrant experiences, including theatrical dining, holistic wellness treatments and therapies, and nomadic desert adventures, combined with an exceptional hospitality experience, the highly anticipated Bab Al Shams Desert Resort enters a new era.

“The reimagined Bab Al Shams is a legacy project that we are proud and passionate to present,” says Gilles Soheir, General Manager of Bab Al Shams. “The team and I are thrilled to bring forward the essence and stories of this sanctuary to bring an authentic Bedouin experience alight.”

Captivating destination experiences and vibrant entertainment are at the beating heart of the reborn resort, spreading intangible energy to every stay and imprinting everlasting memories. Narrating the long-held secrets and stories of its people and the Arabian spirit of adventure, Bab Al Shams has carefully curated signature experiences and activities catering to every guest’s preference and needs. Through the resort’s range of thrilling and exciting activities, guests will uncover the fascinating Arabian history hidden underneath the glittering dunes of the Emirati desert.
