Hotels in United Arab Emirates

Meaning gateway to the sun, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa is located in the desert outside of the city. The low-rise hotel is only two stories high and resembles a fortress with imposing walls and large doors.

Meaning “harbor of peace,” Mina A’Salam is reminiscent of Old Arabia, with its waterfront location and historically inspired wind towers.

A bit of traditional amidst the glitz and glamour of Dubai, the Mediterranean-themed Ritz-Carlton has 138 guest rooms and suites overlooking the Arabian Gulf in the Dubai Marina district.

The luxury Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is designed in the style of a Bedouin encampment. Each of the hotel’s 42 spacious suites resemble tents, and they look out over the desert near the Hajar Mountains, about 45 minutes outside of Dubai.
