A Very Family Friendly Brunch At Bab Al Shams

With visitor season upon us it can sometimes be hard to find those authentic places that newbies to Dubai want to see while trying to keep the kids entertained at the same time. Luckily, Bab Al Shams does it all! Here’s why you should book in for a family brunch pronto.

The occasion:

Family friendly brunch. Now the weather is perfect, it’s time to make the most of it with outdoor brunches and Bab Al Shams ticks all the boxes!


The Venue:

Take your visitors out into the desert and experience some of the best of Dubai! Located out towards Al Qudra, Bab al Shams is a hidden oasis. The hotel has a lovely boutique feel to it with rustic buildings and lots of greenery too – a real oasis.

The Friday Farmers brunch is part inside with a huge amount of choice, from salads, cold meets, cheese, to outside with BBQ cooking stations – roast meat, seafood, Indian food – there’s something for everyone, not to mention the kids food corner… just watch out for all the candy floss!

Once your little ones are ready to burn off all the sugar you’ll find camel and pony rides in the garden, crazy golf, an arts and crafts corner, a clown… they will be fully entertained while you sit back and soak in the warm winters sun and enjoy quality family time.

The vibe:

A wonderful family fun vibe! It’s relaxed and the staff are great with catering for anything you may need.


The Food:

With about 4 different rooms/areas for food there is something for everyone. You can have freshly prepared meat and fish from the BBQ and there is a great selection of chocolate puddings – the first thing I always check!

Room for improvement:

We only wish it was on the entertainer!


What we loved:

If you’re looking to impress your visitors then Bab al Shams will not disappoint. A truly authentic setting in the Dubai desert and the opportunity to have some quality family time!
