Bab Al Shams: Satori Spa
Dubai’s not short on little havens of comfort and relaxation. But if you want to truly want to say goodbye to a week’s worth of stress — and enjoy some downtime with your partner — head to Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa.
Meaning “gateway to the sun”, Bab Al Shams is surrounded by rolling dunes and a natural desert landscape to offer something unique and special. This is a luxury resort that’s far from over the top. Instead, it’s understated and authentic to give you an amazing experience that’s true to the culture and heritage of the UAE. This characteristic extends not only to the hotel itself, but also to its award-winning Satori Spa.
It’s tough to not feel peaceful walking into Satori Spa; it’s a short meander from the main resort entrance. Bab Al Shams’ quiet old-school buildings; clean walkways, with the calming sound of water trickling down stones; and the one-off guest in a bathrobe with eyes-half closed, headed to the pool or lounge areas, scream luxury. They also lull you into a stupor of comfort. The gusts of lavender that exit the spa’s doors cocoon you as soon as you enter — the treatment begins before you’ve even seen the massage table. Focusing on exceptional treatments rather than fancy frills, this is the place for a romantic getaway to reconnect with yourself. Over indulgence simplified!
