A highlight of our month's visit to Dubai family...we relished the desert 'fortress' ambiance and the varied, multiple cooking stations...serving ample portions of freshly-grilled fish, kabobs, chicken, steak, etc., and salads galore for dedicated vegans. The entertainment of live Arab music, Turkish-style twirling dancers, and a curvaceous belly dancer, also featured a moving tableau camel 'caravan', Bedouin horsemen, and a... More

We were taken by friends and had the most fantastic evening. We arrived early and strolled through the gorgeous Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa (which is now on my bucket list as a place to stay) Its a welcome relief from the glitz of inner city Dubai. Its a short stroll through the desert to the restaurant which... More

It was a long late afternoon drive to the hotel. It was however a pleasant drive as the weather was cool. Quite a walk from the parking area to the restaurant as well. I have been here on 2 other occasions around 5 years ago and do not recall having to walk so far. At the restaurant, they seem to... More

As I entered to a warm welcome in the fantastic al fresco restaurant, it was surprising to see that most of the tables were taken. Tourists revel at the fine food that is available in the buffet. The experience was special with the chef and the staff explain about each dish. The entertainment show including darwish dance, belly dance, camel... More

I don't know where to start. I have been to Al Hadheerah years ago when it was still managed by Jumeirah and i was impressed at the time. Tonight i can only say unfortunately what a disappointment on all levels. The only thing positive was the weather, the rest is another story : poor food variety, undercooked grills ( chicken...

Once you enter, you will feel the soul of the dessert. All of the staff from the reception (Jacky), our table attendant (Yasser) and all of them were extraordinary. They gave us a warm welcome with all smiles. It made us feel special. The buffet was delicious combined with prestigious presentation. The kids enjoyed the place since they provide a... More

We did Dubai and the desert safari 6 years ago. This time I wanted something a little different as the family didn't feel like suffering another bout of motion sickness in a 4wd. After some research I found this place which gave you, somewhat, the desert experience, without having to waste half a day and vomiting in the back of... More

Description
Experience 1001 Arabian Nights... A magical Arabian celebration awaits you as the sun sets on Al Hadheerah, amidst the enchanting desert dunes of Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa. Immerse yourself in Arabian culture within the walls of a traditional fort where you will witness a dazzling falconry display, camel caravan, horse show as well as Tanoura dancer. Be entertained throughout the evening as mesmerising dancers weave their magic beneath the stars to the sounds of a live band. There is also no mistaking the mouth-watering aroma of Arabic cuisine as it drifts from the live cooking stations, wood-fired ovens and spit roasts. Al Hadheerah is so much more than a restaurant, it is an incredible event that you have to witness.
