This property is so wonderful! Location is amazing and it has a very comfortable chill vibe, yet very sophisticated. There is a lot of activities available to do as well. The restaurants are all good, offering a good variety.

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa, Endurance City
my opinion
The rooftop bar is the best part of this resort. The Arabic singer in the evening was excellent and added immensely to the ambience. The Indian restaurant was top rated for good reason, excellent food and service. However, the spa was very small and my treatment was adequate at best; there was no relaxation room. I felt hurried. The show at the buffet was cheezy. Also, I can't understand why Arabic themed resorts play techno music in their restaurants/bars which I don't find relaxing, and I specifically go to these type of resorts to relax or I would go to an English pub or American bar restaurant if I wanted such action. Finding a resort which plays no music in the morning during breakfast and offers only a peaceful ambience is a challenge now a days. The resort was ok (too fort like for my taste), but lacked that certain polish that would make it very special. My room had no view and the balcony was blocked by a big wall. Privacy can be accomplished without blocking all views.
