Found in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, set against the backdrop of a beautiful desert landscape, the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is a luxurious and exclusive oasis, providing truly excellent service. Less than an hour's drive from Dubai, it is a world away from the fast pace and bright lights of the city. At Al Maha, guests can relax and take in their unique surroundings from the temperature controlled infinity pool or the comfort of their accommodation. The reserve on which the hotel is set is home to a variety of wildlife, including gazelles and the Arabian Oryx.
The suites at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa are all spacious, boasting natural stone exteriors and showcasing the heritage of Arabia. Bedouin Suites are the lead category and feature charming dark wood furnishings, woven fabrics, their own infinity pool and sun deck, as well as en-suite bathrooms with walk-in shower and an over-sized bathtub. Guests are also afforded excellent views of the rolling dunes and can enjoy casual game viewing from the comfort of their suite. Binoculars are considerately provided too.
