Bab Al Shams Dinner Show

Luxurious rest in the desert

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is a 5 * hotel located in the heart of the Arabian desert near Dubai. This is a real oasis for relaxation in the middle of the desert. The hotel is famous for its excellent service, well-developed infrastructure and different entertainments: the pool and sauna, camel and jeep riding. Perhaps, the main highlight of the hotel is a luxurious restaurant with a unique atmosphere of Arabic flavor - Al Hadheera, better known as Bab Al Shams. While having dinner at the Bab Al Shams restaurant – ‘The Gate of the Sun’, you will feel like sheikhs and princesses.



The open-air restaurant looks like an eastern town with different thematic zones. The interior is made in the traditional Arabian style. During the trip to Bab Al Shams you will learn about the cultural heritage and customs of the Arab people. You will see how Arabic dishes are prepared and taste them, such as young lamb on the spit or sea crabs.


The tour includes a gorgeous buffet dinner with a large variety of ethnic dishes. You can enjoy the taste of delicious Arabic dishes, most of which will be cooked before your eyes on an open fire or in special ovens. You will taste amazing Arabian bread and the freshest seafood - sea crabs, king prawns, squid and different fish. Chefs are real wizards who will demonstrate their culinary skills.


In addition to dinner, the guests will see an interesting show. To the sounds of live Arabic music visitors will see the spectacular Egyptian dance "Tanura". It is performed only by men. It might seem that the dance does not require any special preparation and skills, but this is not true. Not everyone can spin in a heavy suit weighing up to 10 kg, consisting of several layers of skirts, without stopping for 15 minutes. This takes years of training. Therefore, boys have been dancing since childhood. Those who wish can try themselves as a dancer. Ayala Arabic dance is also performed only by men. This is an ancient Bedouin dance which has been passed down from generation to generation.

Then we will see the Lebanese belly dance and a small performance with a caravan of camels. Exciting dances, colorful dresses, delicious food - a unique combination of emotions which will turn dinner into an unforgettable event.

The price includes: transfer from the hotel in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, buffet, show. The price of dinner does not include alcoholic drinks, fresh juices, tea and coffee. You can order drinks for an additional charge.

I think it is unreal to taste all dishes in Bab Al Shams at one visit, there are many many different dishes and food. The staff and food are amazing. From the moment you arrive the staff make sure your visit feels special. The food is fresh and there are several live cooking stations. The menu is local and tastes wonderful. The entertainment is also too class. This place is a must visit for tourists and residents alike.

Dear Roby, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. It should be useful for another travelers too.
