Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa, Dubai

Designed to echo the romance of a traditional Bedouin encampment, this idyllic and exclusive ‘oasis amidst the dunes’ is a favourite with honeymooners and romantic couples – and enjoys a high percentage of repeat guests too.
Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa
Your Bedouin Suite (one of 37) is a luxurious air-conditioned sanctuary with its own private swimming pool. Boasting 75 square metres of living space – the suites are generously proportioned – and each is sumptuously adorned with handcrafted furniture and locally-sourced Bedouin artefacts. There are also two Royal Suites, two Emirates Suites and a Presidential Suite.
With a ratio of three staff to every suite, an exceptionally high level of personalised service is integral to the experience. Meals are a gourmet affair – a unique fusion of Arabic, International and Mediterranean flavours. Romantic ‘Dune Dinners’, set in an authentically-styled Bedouin encampment deep in the Al Maha reserve, provide a truly memorable experience.
Located 45 minutes from Dubai city, Al Maha is an eco-tourism success story. The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in which it is situated, started out as a small area of protected desert open to guests – today, the reserve provides refuge for endangered species unique to the region. Arabian Oryx roam throughout the property and numerous exotic birds can also be seen.
Traditional desert pursuits including falconry, camel treks, archery, horse-riding and guided dune safaris are available – and after a day’s exploring, you can relax and unwind in the superb Timeless Spa. There is also a main swimming pool and even a gymnasium.
