We just spent a lovely weekend at the Bab al Shams resort in Dubai. This five star resort offers a desert adventure, with all the creature comforts you’d expect from a top notch resort. The ambiance is an Arab fort style, with gorgeous carpets and arabesque trimmings.
We had a wonderful camel ride into the desert, and visited the camel farm and saw the baby camels, as well the beautiful Arabian horse stables. There were lots of activities at the resort to keep us busy, aside from the gorgeous pools. There was archery, a falcon show and free camel rides, volleyball, and a nice fitness center and health spa.
The best part of the stay was the evening meal and show at Al Hadeera restaurant. An elaborate and scrumptious buffet was highlighted with a fun show, starting with singers, dancers, and then a full light show with Arabian knights on horseback in a duel and a full camel caravan. All topped off with a belly dancer to wind up the evening's entertainment.
