Your warm welcome starts right at the resort lobby, with the Ya Hala bar living up to its name to welcome you with the perfect mix of comfort, charm and hospitality. Ideal for meet and greets, socialising, morning coffee and light bites.

Ya Hala is your oasis of sports at the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa. A magical desert setting is your backdrop as you settle in with ice cold brews to watch every moment of the big game. Each hoot, holler, score and try is documented larger than life as Arabian hospitality combines with a traditional sports bar vibe.

Following the global impact of COVID-19, and precautionary measures taken by the UAE Government against the spread of the virus, Meydan Hotels and Hospitality has made the responsible decision to temporarily close Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa. With people encouraged to stay home and practice social distancing, our main priority is to safeguard the well-being of our community therefore the property will remain closed from 26 March until 15 April 2020. All facilities, including the swimming pool, gym, spa and restaurants will be closed.
