Al Hadheerah

Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa - Al Qudra Road - Dubai - United Arab Emirates

For all its ultramodernity, Dubai still offers some traditional experiences—or at least, something that replicates a traditional experience. Outside town where the desert begins, Al Hadheerah is more dinner theater than fine dining. Guests sit under the stars in an open-air space enclosed by low walls that resemble a desert fort, with Oriental carpets laid on the sand. Flames leap from fire pits. A huge variety of Arabic cuisine is served buffet-style, while singers and dancers perform on a stage. The evening’s entertainment also includes a camel caravan, horse show and falconry demonstration.
