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.
