About
Dine under the stars in true Arabian style on this desert dinner experience from Dubai. Leave Dubai in an air-conditioned minivan and head for the luxurious Al Sahra Desert Resort, nestled in the desert dunes. Be seated in the torch-lit outdoor and tented dining area and experience a magical evening of food, drink and Arabic entertainment. Savor a lavish buffet including sizzling kebabs from the barbecue and delicious ‘shawarma’ (spit-roast meat wraps); and watch spellbinding displays from fire dancers, musicians, belly dancers and ‘tannura’ dancers — whirling dervishes — under the night sky.

What to expect
  • Depart your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned minivan and drive toward your venue for your dinner-and-show experience, the Al Sahra Desert Resort. On the fringes of Dubai, this eco-tourism resort takes the form of a recreated Arabian fortress and amphitheater nestled in a desert oasis setting of palm-sprinkled dunes. At the heart of the resort is a delightful outdoor camp, complete with a Bedouin-style tent and cushions and tables set outdoors, all illuminated by lanterns and flame-lit torches. On arrival, enjoy a camel ride around the facilities and an Arabic coffee. Then, head to the fort and savor the magical atmosphere as you stroll to the impressive dining area. Here, enjoy a welcome drink and take your seat for the scrumptious dinner buffet and Emirati entertainment. Help yourself to the generous buffet dinner. Expect to enjoy dishes of tasty mezze, grilled fish, sizzling kebabs and more, all washed down with included sodas and mineral water. Additional drinks are available at your own expense. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. As you eat and drink, enjoy a spellbinding dinner show. Watch a breathtaking fire dance display and traditional Emirati hair dance — with women swishing their long hair — set against a soundtrack of rhythmic live music and drumming. Then, be entertained by a glittering belly dancing performance and tannura show, with whirling dervishes spinning hypnotically to music. When the show draws to a close, return to Dubai and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

We were the first to be picked up around 3pm, did two other hotel pick ups and then made the hour drive to the desert to meet the other cars. Desert safari is always done in a convoy of more than 10 cars. We then drove into the protected area of desert used for the safari. We had around 20-25 minutes of dune bashing and then headed to the camp. There is a great buffet dinner with options for vegetarians as well. There are two performances and then you leave by around 8:30pm.

We did the 45 min camel ride to the falconry show and then a 2 min car drive to the bedwin tent. This is as authentic as it gets and our 7 year old loved it. The food was great too. It was an hours drive from our hotel (Atlantis) we were picked up at 3pm got back to the hotel about 10pm

Did loads of online research and wanted to do trip but unsure about some websites with hundreds & hundreds of people. Waited until arrived at Sofitel the Palm and sought advice from resident Alpha Rep in lobby. Specifically asked how many other people would be travelling and told 10 cars of 6, no more. On that basis booked and paid £60 a head.
When got to desert we waited for other cars to join us, waiting 30 minutes plus. Not happy when 23 other cars arrived. Apparently we were fortunate as Alpha often have 40-50 cars in convoy, beware.
For those that don't know the convoy then snakes it's way through the desert. It was good fun for the most part but with so many cars in front you really only see a rear bumper and brake lights. We had middle row and really felt for two in the rear/ boot seats, exceptionally bumpy. Our driver was great, very safe and sensible, he was definitely one of the pluses.
The camp was ok, sort of what you expect. Three camels do a 1 minute ride for the multitude of guests. Food edible but not good, didn't have high expectations for this part of the trip so it was fine.
Six hour trip breaks down to 1 hour 15 minutes to travel to desert, 30 minutes waiting for others to arrive, hour riding over dunes with 3 stops and two hours in camp before return trip.
We enjoyed experience despite numbers of people but could've paid a lot less for the same and would have if we hadn't been misled.
