Journey Highlights

This journey combines the city attractions and glamour of Dubai, with tranquil desert landscapes and the luxurious Omani resort of Six Senses Zighy Bay, located on Oman's Musandam Peninsula. Guests can experience luxury five star resorts, dine within signature restaurants and admire state-of-the-art architecture within Dubai city, before heading to Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, within the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, for a more traditional stay in an authentically-inspired Bedouin encampment. Relax in your private temperature-controlled infinity-edge swimming pool and gaze across the silent dunes and distant Hajar Mountains, admiring the passing Arabian Oryx and gazelles. Guests will also have the opportunity to take part in an array of desert pursuits - from falconry and camel treks, to desert safaris. Following on from these delights of the desert, guests will journey to the cooler mountains of Oman and stay at the spectacular mountain retreat of Six Senses Zighy Bay, with its striking views across the Bay of Oman. With an indulgent spa, gourmet dining and incredible beach, guests are sure to experience the charm of Arabia in Six Senses style, and are bound to leave the peninsula feeling relaxed and inspired.

Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach

+

With its majestic desert kingdoms, dramatic mountain ranges and sweeping fertile plains, the Arabian Gulf offers an exotic mix of enticing destinations, including cosmopolitan Dubai. This ever-innovative land is where the ancient and modern meet between the golden sands of the desert and the warm blue-waters of the Gulf, with glorious sunshine, glittering souks, soaring skyscrapers and, of course, a choice of world-class hotels. Championship golf courses, camel and horseracing, international rugby, sand-skiing or more traditional pursuits, such as falconry, are all here, as are sumptuous spas, designer boutiques and umpteen bars and restaurants. The more adventurous can join a 4WD desert safari and even learn how to skydive. And the prominence of the English language makes every UK visitor feel at home, while Dubai's vibrant atmosphere and constant sunshine ensure it really does take pride of place in the warm heart of Arabia.

Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai

Staying at

Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa

+

Established in 2003, by Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve was the first National Park in the UAE. Inspired by the National Parks of South Africa, this former camel farm is the biggest area of land to ever be dedicated to a single project by the Dubai Government. Representing 5% of Dubai's land, and fully fenced, the 225-square-kilometre nature reserve is a protected haven, set up to conserve the indigenous wildlife species, grasses and shrubs - with the Arabian Oryx being a true conservation success story. Just an hour's drive inland from the city, this vast reserve provides the ultimate desert sanctuary for the San Gazelle, Ethiopian Hedgehog and rare Gordon's Wildcat, whilst providing a dune-filled landscape for guests to admire, relax and explore. Desert pursuits include watching birds of prey, taking part in desert safaris and archery. The shifting dunes, birdsong and peaceful tranquillity of this desert reserve, make it a wonderful contrast to the vibrant city life and an integral part of any journey to Dubai.

Highlights

The Desert Conservation Reserve is a vast wilderness, resembling an ancient Bedouin encampment, providing conservation, tranquillity and engaging desert pursuits.

Staying at

Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa

+

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.


  • Type:Boutique Hotel
  • Summary:A desert resort offering an insight into Arabian heritage
  • Feature:Enjoy fine dining from the comfort of your private deck
  • Rooms:42 Suites (all with private pools)
