Does the Skyteam lounge have showers and a quiet/dark area with flat beds/loungers to grab a nap?

One important point about DXB :
Security won't allow you airside before 8 hours from your scheduled departure. They do enforce the rule that is part of the scan control routine.

So even if you could access the lounge, you won't be able to reach it before 6PM at best.

Only one way to circumvent this : get an within-airport hotel booking but since it's not located in concourse D, I don't think that is a workable option.
