A luxurious and spectacular place to stay amidst the sand dunes of the Arabian Desert, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is also less than an hour from the centre of Dubai and the airport, so transfer times are not too long and you can do some sightseeing and shopping in the city if you can drag yourself away.

That won't be easy - superb leisure facilities here include four pools (one an infinity pool and one a kids' pool), a kids' club for ages 5-12 and a splendid spa. There are also plenty of activities for all the family to take part in, including archery, camel rides, desert safaris and even croquet. The eight restaurants include a stunning open-air Arabic desert restaurant with live entertainment and a souk. Rooms are stylish with an Arabian feel.
