At only sixteen kilometers from the airport in Dubai, Al Bait Sharjah hotel tells us to dream again about this emirate …
When you think of the United Arab Emirates, you probably think of Dubai with its high skyscrapers, artificial palm-shaped islands and mega shopping malls with central air conditioning. Nevertheless, Sharjah, the northern neighbor of Dubai, only sixteen kilometers away, is not well known. This emirate is quite conservative and dormant in relation to others, more precisely, it has been so far.
With the opening of Al Bait Shajah, the first luxury resort of the emirate, Shirah now offers a wonderful alternative to the splendor and glamor of Dubai.
This hotel is located near the water canal, where most of the buildings are from the nineteenth century. A few steps from the entrance to the hotel, there is an old-fashioned Suk, where the Bedouins used to gather, and now materials and tailors, modern boutiques and perfumery are sold.
Al Bait hotel provides the feeling of a enclosed enclave, with plenty of narrow passages that are illuminated by lanterns during the evening, connecting the hidden courtyards with hamam and spa, two restaurants and cafes, as well as a library, museum and ice cream shop. The fifty-three rooms and suites of this hotel include several accommodation units built on the foundations of houses that once belonged to the most prestigious families of this emirate. Decorated in traditional style, with Arabic-style sofas, hand-carved pieces of wooden furniture and decorative details of brass, here the rooms give a romantic and hospitable style.
Dubai’s attractions will be within easy reach of you if you stay at this hotel, thanks to the Mercedes-Benz fleet with private drivers. Sharjah was once proclaimed the capital of the Arab world, and can offer you plenty of activities to enjoy.
So, if you want to replace all the noise and anger of Dubai, visit the romantic Sharjah Al Bait.
