Just a 70 km drive from Dubai is a hidden jewel and a must experience place called Bab Al Shams Resort - Al Hadheera restaurant, from the food to the ambience it’s simply luxury that’s worth every penny, authentic Arabic food & ambience.
since we visited during iftaar (breaking of fast during Ramadan) there was a huge Arabic buffet. The restaurant itself is packed with activities like camel rides / horse show / pony rides / heritage museum / tanoora dancer / horse show and this is all for free!!! if a restaurant alone can brighten your whole evening...i can only imagine what the resort can do!
However, the paying activities include:
Shisha priced at 75dhs
Mehendi - 85dhs (starting depending on design)
Sand art - 50dhs+
A small garment store
TIP - Make sure to fill up on fule before you start your journey there, as there are no gas stations on the way.
