Escape to the desert in refined luxury at this oasis in the dunes

Situated amongst a timeless dune and desert landscape at the centre of the 225 square-kilometre Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, this secluded, award-winning resort is a verdant oasis resembling an ancient Bedouin encampment.

The luxury hideaway that is Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa offers a seductive 'at-one-with-nature' experience that simply can't be found elsewhere.

There are 42 ultra-private Suites waiting to welcome you, all with handcrafted furniture and authentic Arabian and Bedouin ornaments, and their own private pool from which to gaze at the desert wildlife. For absolute luxury try the spacious Royal Suites, boasting magnificent bathrooms and living rooms, where the floor-to-ceiling windows allow the dramatic views to flood in.

For total romantic seclusion, you can call upon the in-suite dining service. However, for a dining experience you'll never forget, head for the sophisticated style of the alfresco 'Al Diwaan' restaurant. Its breathtaking views of the endless landscape are something that has to be seen to be believed – there really is nothing else like it on Earth. Then go and top all that off with cocktails on the main veranda, wrapped in the dark silence of a brilliant night sky as animals congregate at the nearby floodlit waterhole.

Twin your stay here with a few days in the city to experience the best of both worlds; indigenous Arabian wildlife and desert activities at Al Maha, and beach life, shopping and sightseeing in the city.

Savour a truly indulgent dining experience at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa, with enticing menus, an award-winning Executive Chef, and fresh, organic ingredients.

The resort’s organic fine dining restaurant, Al Diwaan, has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the best dining establishments in Dubai. Sample a tempting array of indigenous and international specialities on the outdoor veranda with its phenomenal views, in the privacy of your luxury suite, or in the sophisticated restaurant itself.

Enjoy a delicious cocktail and some breathtaking vistas of the reserve in the Terrace Bar, or treat yourself to a magical fine dining experience under the starry Arabian sky one evening – you can look forward to a wonderful picnic on the dune, complete with Persian carpets and flame torches.

If the Dune Dining experience sounds appealing, then there are plenty of other opportunities to explore the desert at this luxury resort. Two desert-based activities per day are included in your stay, such as wildlife and desert safaris, horse and camel riding, nature walks with experienced field guides, falconry and archery.
