Description

Set around a secluded oasis within the 225km² Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Al Maha offers the ultimate desert sanctuary - and a privileged glimpse into the heritage and romance of Arabia - away from the bright lights of the city. Resembling an ancient Bedouin encampment, this secluded, internationally award-winning resort offers a unique and completely personal experience of the region's history and hospitality. With an animal-focused take on a desert, luxury oasis, this safari-like experience means you can be sipping on champagne from your private, infinity-edge swimming pool, while, just feet away, rare, indigenous wildlife will be ambling along their way.

Graceful interiors are scattered with regional antiques and artefacts, while thoughtful extras - such as binoculars and an easel - are on-hand, should you feel inspired. Relax in your private temperature-controlled infinity-edge swimming pool, gaze across silent dunes to the distant Hajar Mountains or head out to meet the unusual locals (including rare Arabian Oryx and shy gazelles), with an array of equally unusual desert activities.

Here, you have a front-row seat to Dubai’s magical dune landscape, a part of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.

Leisure:+
Health & Fitness

The Timeless Spa is discreetly concealed amidst the dunes and integrated around the main swimming pool. Here you'll find a sauna, Jacuzzi, ice-pool and steam room. There are two single massage rooms, two double massage rooms for couples, and hydrotherapy and Rasul therapy rooms.

In order to conserve the desert's most precious resource, and in-keeping with Al Maha's environmental focus, all the water is fully recycled via a unique irrigation system.

In Addition

The resort is run in the manner of a safari lodge, with morning and evening excursions, riding, sunset camel treks ending in sundowners on the dunes, archery, nature walks, wildlife-drives and dusk safaris, arriving in good time to watch the sun set while devouring strawberries and Champagne. A guided sunrise walk through the desert comes highly recommended as it provides the perfect opportunity to admire birds and animals, such as Oryx and Gazelles, in their natural setting, whilst the early morning falconry displays are well worth the early start.
