Oh this beautiful desert I live in. Can you imagine what it’s like to be able to drive out to places like this within an hour from your home …
Even though I have lived in the UAE for over 5 years now, I still enjoy my weekend desert trips and getaways just as much as I did in the early days. There is so much to see around the UAE, and the desert carries a certain serenity one doesn’t find anywhere else.
This morning we drove out to Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, just 45 minutes out of Dubai, built in an old Arabic fort, and surrounded by sand dunes. When you walk through the resorts garden and walkways, past the beautiful pool and restaurants, you end up straight in the desert. We skipped breakfast this time and enjoyed some well deserved peace and quiet after weeks of hard work and city vibes.
Drive out to Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa in 45 minutes on a Friday morning for breakfast or enjoy the sunset from the rooftop lounge overlooking the breathtaking desert.
For this trip right before Christmas (yes the weather is great in December) I was wearing a super cute blue linen jumpsuit, white espadrilles, hand woven straw beach bag and two different necklaces. This was such an enjoyable day!
