Experience a new kind of “chill” in the middle of the desert

Experience a new kind of “chill” in the middle of the desert

I had anticipated that flying in and out from one state to another to discuss existing and future projects with five different clients from five different states in the US – with no time for leisure, whatsoever – would be very much exhausting. And knowing myself, I knew that for me to be able to smoothly implement the new projects and updates for my company back in Manila, I will need to revitalize my energy first and get my act together. And so, even before my brain screams, “I need a Breaaaaak!!!,” I willfully rewarded myself with a well-deserved vacation… hehehe… 😊

To my friends, they know me as a beach-loving person; or maybe, someone who would rather prefer a tranquil nature trip for a typical getaway – exactly just as how I usually do most of my travels. But, quite unusually, my busy feet pointed me to a different direction – somewhere I have never ventured into traveling before; somewhere that no one, not even myself, would even think of going to – quote unquote – “CHILL”. Somewhat quite ironic, after ten strenuous days of non-stop work, I found myself on board the Emirates, flying my way to… guess where?? The hot and arid deserts of Dubai!

Yup!!! You read it right. I actually decided to cool off in the desert! Quite weird?? Actually… Not really… Keep reading…

Tourists, especially first-timers, who get to travel to this part of the Middle East, would normally go to the city center where the renowned Burj Khalifa is. But, who wouldn’t, right? However, since I always have that “Classic Kris” penchant of doing my adventures quite distinctively, I was fortunate to have been led to a luxurious hotel in the middle of the desert, located just an hour away from the city – BAB AL SHAMS DESERT RESORT AND SPA.

My transport to the hotel was a breath of fresh air for me despite the intense heat. This is not a paid advertisement; but, traveling via Business Class with Emirates Airlines instantly gave me the perk of free hotel transfers, which normally costs around 400 Dirhams two-way. And take note, not only was it just an ordinary free ride, I was lavishly brought to the hotel in style by no less than a BMW limousine! What else can I say? I was just at the start of my trip and I feel as though I’m already blessed by Allah!

Hotel and Accommodation

Upon arrival at the hotel, any visitor, just as I did, would get to experience the true richness of the Arab culture straightaway – from the grand and elegant Arabian architecture of Bab Al Shams, to the warm and hospitable reception of the hotel staff, who, by the way, all wear the traditional and iconic Emirati clothes. They gladly served me with refreshments as soon as I stepped into the lobby, while they neatly arranged my luggage in preparation for my check-in.

Believe it or not, it took me just around three minutes to get my keys; after which, I was courteously escorted to my room located at the hotel’s ground floor. The room location was certainly a great convenience for me, since I will no longer have to go up and down the stairs just to get around the hotel.

And if that wasn’t enough, my room was jaw-droppingly amazing! It has a super king-size bed and comfy pillows to match perfect enough for someone needy of relaxation as I am. The room also has a sofa-bed, a mini-bar, free daily coffee and fruits, and a stone bath tub that simply spells “luxury”. I even remember staying there for an hour after a very tiring photoshoot, just to bathe and relax over wine.

But, the most picturesque part of all would have to be the balcony! There, I can watch the majestic Arabian sunrise across the vast desert right at the comfort of my own room. This was a totally new experience for me since I’m generally more of a beach type of guy. But, trust me. Sunrises over dunes and seas of sands are an entirely different kind of wonderful that everyone must see!

Food and Activities

Bab Al Shams offers a wide range of activities for visitors and tourists alike. As for me, I was given one free activity per day as a staying guest; which included the “Falcon Encounter” and a “Walking Tour into the Desert”. The hotel also takes pride of their two large pools – a family pool and an infinity pool – where guests can simply take a dip to beat the Arabian heat. But, of all the activities and amenities in the menu, the one that I really enjoyed most was my stint on “Archery”. All my adventures in Dubai were captured with great precision and detail. Thanks to my friend – Abu Dhabi-based professional photographer, Jorell Ariolla.

Altogether, most of the outdoor activities offered by the hotel would require physical discipline, strong stamina and endurance. As a fervent advocate of healthy lifestyle and fitness, I can say that I really enjoyed all the activities, including the Walking Tour where I crossed the desert under the scorching heat of the sun… And this is the part where I thanked the inventors of sunblocks, haha…Finding food in the middle of the desert, especially that I arrived at Bab Al Shams on a Ramadan Season, never became a problem for me. The hotel has several restaurants that serve almost every type of food that a visitor’s tummy could want; except, of course, for pork, which, I don’t eat – apart from it being a no-no for most Muslim countries.

And if you’ll ask for my recommendations, I would highly suggest that you try my favorite restaurant in Bab Al Shams – AL SARAB ROOFTOP LOUNGE. There, they serve seafood; and despite it being in a highly-Muslim country, they can serve alcoholic drinks and wine anytime, anywhere. All these you can enjoy while marveling at the magnificent sunset view.

Dubai presented me with a totally unique experience that I will definitely cherish…

I stayed in Dubai for 4-days and 3-nights; and given the chance, I will surely go back. Why won’t I? The hotel, which is literally an oasis in the middle of the desert, has everything that any tourist could ask for. Not only do they serve good food, they also have excellent service, great ambiance, the price of their food and accommodation are pretty reasonable; and to top it all, they have Filipinos working for them as staff, which made my stay even more relaxing and closer to home.

My “chill” and relaxing trip in “hot” Dubai did serve its purpose well. The experience really brought me back to myself and got me feeling tuned-up and rejuvenated enough to face the happy challenges that await me in Manila.

Now, tell me… With all these, would you dare say that staying in the desert cannot be SO COOL?

Having the time to do leisure and to blog as well, you are such an inspiration to us millenials who works from Monday to Friday and tries to have a social life after all the hardwork. Keep going on what you do. Inspire more people!!

    For someone who haven’t been to another country, I have a list of contrues I want to visit in the near future. To be honest, Dubai, UAE is not a part of that list because I hate the heat (except heat when you’re in the beach). I’m pretty amazed with your experience and now I am listing it down in my to-go list.

    BTW, congratulations on the blog, vlog, work, etc.! You are living the life I wanted -doing my work while doing the things I want in life. Hope to meet you soon (Maybe you should pick me to make that happen? Just kidding. Lol) More power, Kris!!

    So many good things have been said about Dubai but reading your share of experience gives it a little more push to my imagination of the city. It makes me want to experience Dubai first-hand! Good content. Amazing photos.

  22. June 20, 2018 / 11:14 am

    This website is one of the best travel blogs I’ve read in both domestic and international category, this sums up all the experience in one blog post, the distinct emotion of the blogger himself, the surrealism of the destination and finally the composition of the catchphrases and language is comprehensive in a way you won’t have to read another blog about the place after you checked this one out already. Superb work KRIS ❤️

    Wow. Before, akala ko sa mga beach lang pwedeng magcool down or mag chill chill pero after reading this — your blog or the whole article, nag-iba yung point of view ko pagdating sa pagchichill kapag gustong magrelaxed. Akala ko noon maganda lang pumunta sa disyerto ay kapag hindi masyadong mainit para mas maenjoy pero, ano nga bang purpose ng sunblock diba? Hahaha😆. At based on your satisfying photos, na napakagaganda, mukha talagang naenjoy mo po sya at maeenjoy rin sya ng kahit na sinong makakaexperience ng naexperience nyo sa Dubai. Itong blog mo po about dubai, nakakatuwa sya kasi yung way nyo ng parang pagnanarrate, parang ang taong magbabasa nito ay mafi-feel din na nasa Dubai sya (like me. Naiimagine ko sarili ko dun habang binabasa to) and shinare nyo din kung gaanong kasarap pa lalo ang naexperience nyo dahil may mga kababayan tayong nagtatrabaho dun na mas mafifeel ng mga Pilipino (o kahit na sino man) ng pagiging at home sa Dubai na iyong pinuntahan😊 napaka-inspiring and to be honest, first time ko po makabasa ng blog nyo at hindi nakakapagsisi na binasa ko to😊 more powers and more travels for you kuya! God Bless po😄

    It truly was a well-deserved vacation! From boarding Emirates (which operates the largest fleets) going to Dubai (known for home of luxury) and now imagining myself riding in a BMW limousine, wow!!! Wish I had the “classic kris” disposition 😁 Apart from it, I enjoyed viewing your photos uploaded on IG (incldung the ig stories) Oh ghad, it was all perfectly captured especially when you do your topless photos (your body is just amazingly good!) It makes me want to workout harder and save much money just to see the beauty of Dubai! Soon 🙏🏻

    Thanks for always sharing your travel experience specially your Dubai trip. Been here in Dubai for seven years but i haven’t experience visiting Bal Al Shams resort which is one of the most luxurious resort here. The fact that you mention that Dubai is one of your dream destination means a lot to us working here in UAE. You showed that there could be comfort and beauty in the middle of the desert, the incredibly caring crew, the delicious food, the history that your followers learned from the stunning beauty of Dubai. Swimming in the most gorgeous swimming pools etc. Your itinerary suited your personality perfectly.

I can’t find your Falcon Encounter in your IG, maybe you can share us your experience also. 😊 We hope, your readers, that you continue sharing your travel as well as your everyday life.

    wow. nice blog Kris! this is great. the moment i read, na 5 states ang pinuntahan mo prior going to Dubai, was very exhausting. you really need a break. SUPER AGREE ako dun hehe. “Definitely DUBAI” Ika nga sa slogan nila. great choice!!! i have friends working in Dubai, they said there’s a lot of tourist destination need to consider sa Dubai. na doon mo lang talaga ma e-experience. I know super nag enjoy ka. Dubai never fail you. expect the unexpected ika nga. hehe. staying in the desert? awesome kayal! imagine may pool in the middle of the desert haha. sa Dubai, you will experience new things, new adventure, though kahit saang lugar ka naman mapunta, you will experience new things. but sa Dubai? the food, the places you’ve been to, was sooo cool! one of my bucket list din tong Dubai. soon kapag kaya ko ng mag apply ng tourist visa haha. keep it up sir kris!

    This gave me all the more reason to save up and go to Dubai. Dubai is well known as one of the most sought after luxurious place in the world but with what you shared with us, you gave me more reasons to save up and pack my own bag too soon, hopefully! This also reminds me of the Sex and the City 2 movie where in the cast went to Dubai and while reading your post, I kinda pictured out your hotel stay just like theirs. I’m glad that you’re happy with your journey and thank you so much for sharing with us your awesome experience! ☺️

    Maybe one of my greatest weakness in life is to be envious to people who are able to live and experience life as its best.

    And i do #lodi envy you for your travels, to see the world at its finest and enjoy the company of diverse people with their cultures. Also, you being able to share back to your followers, friends, fans and ‘haters’ (as well) is nevertheless a great gift or blessing.

    To see and read about the wonders of every country, the goodness of life, the freedom to live a day or two without any troubles nor thinking of work deadlines, bills to pay and love sickness (#hugotpamore) – is but a wondrous thing to read about.

    For others like me, to fulfill and put a check on one of those infinite bucket lists you want to do in life is nethertheless one scroll or click away as we read them through words and pictures humble people like you share in your blogs. Ironic as it may sound but as you scrible those experiences, we readers are able to take a digital glimpse and glance of the world. Thank you #lodi.

    On the other hand, through you and other bloggers out there, you have inspired me to make a realization to make my dream escapades a realization in the soonest future #grammarcheck #lol. That i made a bond to me self, that soon, very soon (lol) i would be able to experience my four extreme weather/seasons – the dry arid desert, the cold snowy Himalayas, the summer blue waters of Maldives and the loving season of cherry blossoms.

    Again thank you for sharing your wondrous experiences, thoughts, and dos and donts in travel. May you continue to inspire others like me to continuously enjoy life and bring inspirations to others. Goodlucka and God bless on your future travels and endeavors #lodi #fitspiration #livinglife #travelgoals #dubaiatisfinest #travelpamore #yolo #firsttimetomakeacomment #lol #nosebleed #needstopracticewriting #nagtagalognalangsanaako

    I could definitely perceive how excited and enjoyed you are having your quote unquote “Chill” in Dubai. I have never had a vacation abroad, but your blog will induce not only Filipinos, but also the other citizens to consider Dubai as one of their countries bucket list once they read this. Though, I find the trip so costly, but it’s worth a try.

    Keep up in uplifting people with your blog.

    I really haven’t thought that there is a luxury hotel in the middle of the desert in Dubai. I’m also more likely of a beach boy and mountain lover but given the chance to witness a beautiful sunrise and sunset in the desert’s horizons, why not. I’m a sucker for sunrise, especially sunsets. And all those activities in the desert, I also want to try ‘em. For adventures like this, you can surely count on me. Hoping and praying to visit Dubai in the future. And if I had the chance, I’d go and visit Bab Al Shams. Thank for this post KRIS! 😘😍💛🧡 -@ringohapiherb

    Dubai is one on my bucket list. I think everyone of us deserves a break from work, stress, family and have some time to relax and enjoy, I can see in the pics that you had a great time staying at a fancy hotel in the middle of the desert. The architectural design of the hotel is exquisite , you will really feel that you’re in the middle east. It’s really nice that the hotel has outdoor activities to keep the guest entertained but I think one of the highlight of dubai is to ride a camel in the desert which I think the hotel doesn’t offer. I heard that Star Gazing in desert is one of the things you should do in dubai cuz’ you will clearly see the heavenly bodies. It’s a good thing that the hotel has a variety of restaurants to choose after a tiring adventure in the desert. Overall the hotel really looks amazing it has a breathtaking view of the desert that will give you the feeling of freedom and solitude.

    I’m currently saving up for my ultimate bucket list which is the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴 in europe this will take time but I know in time I will be able to achieve it, like you always say #dreamsdocometrue . Been Following you on ig and silently reading your blogs for quite sometime now my favorite place you visited so far is Switzerland (Suisse) which you stay at Hotel Villa Honegg I wanna be the 25th Filipino who stay at that hotel. This coming june 30 is my birthday I wish I could travel with you. Until your next travel Sir kris. Looking forward for more shirtless photo Sir Kirs lol 😂 😝

    Hindi pa ako nakararating ng Dubai, UAE pero gusto kong mabisita ang bansang pinagtrabahuhan ng aking Amain para sa ikabubuhay naming kanyang pamilya rito sa Pilipinas. Alam kong hindi biro ang init sa disyerto ngunit subalit datapwat ay gusto ko itong maramdaman dahil sa pamamaraang ito ay para ko na ring naranasan ang hirap ng aking Amain sa kanyang pamamalagi rito. Sa aking pagbabasa sa karamihan ng komento sa blog na ito, itong aki’y di pangkaraniwan, sa kadahilanang ako’y gumamit ng Purong Tagalog dahil gusto ko ako’y maiba at mapansin at isa pa’y ako’y naglahad ng kakaibang dahilan kung bakit ko gustong mapadpad sa disyertong paraiso ng Dubai. Nawa’y ako’y magwagi. 🙂

  81. June 20, 2018 / 2:02 pm

    I’ve never been in United Arab Emirates or in Dubai (to be specific) in my entire years of existence. Scrolling through your blog post, it really brought me to feel how mesmerizing the glimpse of Dubai has. From the arrival, foods, accomodations and welcoming people it is totally awesome. From the very moment I’d read your funfacts about Dubai, I definitely wished I could visit there. How I wish I can be there and feel how incredible the experience might be. And I would be felt so auspicious if that turns into reality. But before going to Dubai, I want and I hope I would be the winner of your free travel with you contest. It would the most memorable experience I would ever had that I will surely revere for the rest of my life. 😊

    Dear kris,
    Some may see your post as austentcious, but what the hell, its your money. As your follower it is quite obvious that you always deviate from norms. Of course strippin your clothes is always a part of it. I would like to congratulate your numerous photographers for capturing your chiseled physique artistically. Now that you plan to visit coron, i would like to leave you with a challenge. How about going to beaches,/waterfalls in the country which you have not yet visited and not that famous. It is would still be as difficult but may not be as expensive. Your other followers may also find time to go there especially some if not many of us are as rich as you. Hitting three birds in one stone. 1.You get to travel and explore 2. You get to influence more people 3.You get to adverise and help other people.
    I hope you think of it.
    Lovelots,

Given the fact that its a progressive place, it still provides an earthly vibe to feel relax and bountiful activities to try to. This blog makes me want to graduate asap and experience dubai both for work and leisure. 👌👌

    Every country or place is a bucket list. We see every destination in different way but most importantly, we also feel it in the same way. We may can forget the exhaustion we felt while travelling but we can never deny the happiness we had during that moment. Wanting to travel to other countries to have fun is an understatement. It is a feeling that we can never express but it is the smile on the face that we pocess. And no matter how fun we experienced other cultures and countries, the best part is always going HOME.

  114. June 20, 2018 / 4:57 pm

    “Astonishing” one word to describe everything you have experienced in dubai. I’ve never been in that country (hahaha just had few wayback :)) you really get to discover a different side of dubai. It’ll be a great choice for anyone whose planning a trip (how I wish I could afford haha) but it was such a very helpful one. I will definitely tell my friend about this place because she is currently working in dubai and I’m sure she’ll be suprised too. Haaayyyy how I wish im a blogger narin( hehe ) Im following all of guys: YOU, DG, David, Vina, Kerwin, apart from being so amazing, you guys are very Inspiring. Thank you! It was such a nice blog. Hope you continue to inspire more readers and followers!

    It was a perfect reward after long days of work. The trip is a great combination of chill and adventure. The hotel reminds me of a GoT castle or that place where gladiators were being trained– it was sexy, so are you. I bet you had a great time and certainly, it’s a must-visit place amidst Dubai and its desert.

  121. June Angelo Mercado
    June 20, 2018 / 9:52 pm

    Oh this is something. I never knew your photos in IG actually have stories to tell about your Dubai experience. I didn’t expect for them to be connected into a story. Now, this made me want to go to desert even more. I have always fancied deserts coz I think they’re cool and amazing. And I was right! hahaha. I think that how you amazingly picture out the place and described the experience gave an effect to readers to imagine how cool it is to stay there, even without seeing the video. I had fun reading this. Thanks for sharing this Kris. I sure hope one day I can experience what you’ve experienced in Dubai.

    You’re really one of of the bloggers whom I admire the most. You’ve inspired me to travel more and see the wonders of the world, but for now, I still need to travel my country, Phillippines , before I can go out and explore the natures and the structures of the others. Youve made every destinations worth going through.

    Hoping to be part of your travel someday and learn from you on how to make colors of every captured moments youve taken. Because the sad thing is, I cant keep a good photo in every destinations I’ve gone to.

    Hope to see you in Coron! ❤️🤣

    I’ve been following you for over a year now, I think. And I always envy how you’re able to live your life the way you want it. I enjoy seeing your posts because it feels like it brings me to that place, too, without physically being there. Traveling is a therapy. It brings us into a different level of happiness (and sadness if you’re unlucky, like me hahaha). I’ve been in an 8-yr relationship which ended 3 yrs ago. My partner and I often travel, when we were still together, as long as time and money permit. Palawan isn’t my favorite place because it’s where it all ended. Blood, tears, and a broken heart are my memories of that place. I wanted to go back there to create happy memories and bury the old ones. My time there was the saddest and darkest days of my life and it’s something I never want to look back at. I know it’s a long shot for me to win this but who cares? I’ll still go back to that place someday and be a better me. Happier. 🙂

    Hi Kris!
    It’s so nice to see you enjoying Dubai. It brings back a lot of good and fun memories i had before when i was working there as a Sales Associate at Dubai Airport fir three years. Your description of Bab Al Shams interior was perfectly detailed,it feels like i am with you while you are writing this vlog.😊
    Arab culture is so rich that makes me think of coming back in the future,i just don’t like when it summer though it’s sooo freaking hot. I hope you can go back someday soon and try to visit some nice beaches they have like in Jumeirah. I’m pretty sure you will love it! And oh,also try to visit there when it’s not during Ramadan days so that you can explore more of their culture and tradition.
    I’m looking forward of seeing you going back to the city that has a special place in my heart. Good luck and more power!

    Travelling was never a thing of mine until recent times. I always tell myself that I hate packing and unpacking my things and that I am too lazy to those. Not until I fell inlove with the Beauty of Palawan which opened my mind to see how beautiful the world can be. I have made some trips this year with my friends at work and my high school friends and I would say that travelling to a place you’re not comfortable to is truly a remarkable experience regardless of how great or epic it may be. Just like your trip to Dubai – which you described as an unusual thing for you, may showcase a breath of fresh air that will leave a lasting memory And that is the true beauty of Earth.

    Happy travelling to you …… and me.. 😁😁😁✌✌✌🤜🤛

    Hi Kris,

    This is my fiŕst time visiting your site and I must say you are a good writer. While im reading your Dubai post, i can imagine the view, the feel and the look of Bab Al Sham Desert Resort and Spa. From the time that you arrived at the hotel, from your activities (and kahit yung sinabi mo about the pool, naiimagine ko yung tubig at yung tunog ng splash habang nag sswim) it felt like you took me to Dubai by just reading your own experience.

    Now I want to go to Dubai na haha and experience it for myself.

    Kudos to you!! More travels to you!!!

    Eli,

  146. June 21, 2018 / 8:59 am

    Great post, Kris! I never knew that there could be so much COOL things to do, food to eat, and places to visit in a desert. Will definitely work hard to be able to visit Dubai and the other amazing places you’ve been to.

    As a hardworking blogger like you, you definitely deserve this leisure trip. As an aspiring travel and food blogger like me, I am proud to say that you are truly my travel and fitness inspiration. I continue to learn about the places I have never been to as well as be able to visualize what it’s like to be in those places because of you. I am grateful for the experiences you share through your blog and the amazing photos you share through your IG account. I have been following you for some time now and I have always been astonished with the photos you share. Every photo is like a work of art and when you’re in it, it becomes a masterpiece. The places you visit are amazing but it’s you who make them breathtaking. 😊

    I hope you continue to inspire more people like me. You bring us happiness and motivation to work harder for our aspirations. God bless you and more power to you, Kris!

Soon kapag nakapagtrabaho na ako nakaipon at pamilya pupuntahan ko to. Swear!!! ❤❤❤ Thankyou for inspiring us! More power and Godbless!!! 😇❤

    Time management is everything, if we had that one limited opportunity in life to travel and feel that kind of experience in the middle of dessert then we’ll do it on purpose.

    Hi Kris,
    I love how you took risk and unexpectedly found the oasis that you need to recharge. I too take a break once in a while to manage work related stress but I usually prefer countries where the weather is cool. However, your Dubai adventure makes me wanna try this too. Not the usual “chill” but it seems equally awesome!

    Hope to read more of your adventures, take care!

    TBH, I just open your blog because of your Dubai experience!
    (Staying here for 4yrs already) 😁

    Happy to know that you’re satisfied with your “chill” here in the “hot” desert! 😉
    And that clip, awesome! Looking forward to read more of your blogs soon!
    More travels to come! And be safe as always!

    God Bless Sir Kris 😇

    Great to hear that you did the “cultural experience” of relaxation this time. I am used to seeing you relaxing at the beach and enjoying food and nature, but this time it’s about culture and immersion. Hope to see more of these in your future posts.

    it’s very nice that you featured Dubai on a different perspective. Dubai became synonymous to bustling city with towering skycrapers and busy streets. Who knew that a place like that where you can experience a more authentic arabian atmosphere.
