Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa

Discover Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa

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. 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. Dining is a lavish affair with an award-winning chef creating eastern and western flavors and memories to savor. In addition to taking meals within the resort's restaurant, there is also deck and in-suite dining as well as unique 'dune dining'. You can enjoy a variety of treatments at the Timeless Spa, with a team of specially trained therapists on hand. As part of a stay at the Al Maha Desert Resort, you can enjoy up to 2 complimentary activities each day, such as falconry, archery, wildlife drives, camel treks or nature walks. Horse riding and dune driving are available for a small supplement.
