Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa has two new family-friendly brunches that are perfect for a weekend of fun for the whole gang.
Friday Garden Brunch
Set in the lush green gardens of all-day dining restaurant Al Forsan, live cooking stations offer up a Middle Eastern spread that sits happily alongside the usual international favourites. The kids’ corner features some 20 different desserts from around the world, but the restaurant does boast an impressive healthy dish selection to counterbalance all the greed. A bit. When it comes to activities for the little brunchers, camel and pony riding, plus a petting zoo really steal the show. Magicians and jugglers also keep the smalls entertained while mums and dads relax and enjoy the live music.
Free (kids under six and nannies), Dhs183 (kids between six and 12), Dhs365 (soft drinks), Dhs575 (house beverages). Fri 1pm-4pm.
Saturday Al Forsan 360°Nature Brunch
Grab your picnic hamper, find yourself a space on the lawn and lay down your blanket to claim your spot as DJ Angela takes to the decks to create a casual, laid-back Saturday afternoon vibe. Kids can run free on the grass or head to the incredible play area where camels and ponies are waiting to give them a ride around the grounds. A bouncy castle and plenty of fun games also keep little people entertained and out of trouble.
Free (kids under six), Dhs113 (kids between six and 12), Dhs225 (soft drinks). Sat 1pm-4pm.
That's the weekend sorted then.
