Al Maha Desert Resort

The Al Maha Desert Resort, a Luxury Collection Resort, is located deep within the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. This desert resort and spa offer amazing desert views of the dunes and the verdant palm oasis.

Al Maha Resort showcases the Bedouin heritage in its architecture with a feel of a traditional village mixed with modern luxury and a deep appreciation of the desert. This love for the area is demonstrated by how much effort is put into the desert's conservation.

The reserve features many animals native to the region, like the Arabian Oryx and gazelles. View these animals from your suite private pool or sundeck found at all villas. Every private room feels like you're in your desert oasis, surrounded by the wild desert.

Exceptional Service

Enjoy two complimentary desert activities daily, such as a camel trek through the beautiful desert. In addition, a private desert event suite is available if you're looking to hold an event for up to 300 guests. It can host weddings, group functions, or any special celebration you want to enjoy with beautiful desert views.

Celebrate any special family event at this luxury collection desert resort for an unforgettable occasion. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, making any occasion or stay as stress-free as possible.

Al Maha, a luxury resort, is truly dedicated to sustainability. The resort now offers to charge for electric vehicles. This allows guests to contribute to sustainability efforts and renewable energy usage at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. The resort also has solar panels and recycles water to ensure they are as environmentally friendly as possible.

This is important when your resort is in the center of a reserve. You can feel good about staying at Al Maha if you care about the environment. In addition, the resort is only 1 hour from Dubai city center.

Rooms and Suites

The rooms offered at this collection desert resort spa are genuinely private. Each one looks like a traditional Bedouin tent with a private plunge pool for cooling off and a deck to enjoy the beautiful views and wildlife. In addition, each room offers binoculars and art supplies like oil pastels, so if you feel inspired, you can sketch the scenery beside your temperature-controlled private pool.

While you may worry about amenities, inside each tent is a luxurious interior. Each features large beds, Arabian antiques, and plenty of seating. Each room also includes a marble bathroom with rainfall showers, soaking tubs, and Bulgari amenities.

If you need more space for a family, larger suites are available. For example, you can select a two-bedroom Royal Suite. This resort's presidential suite is called the Emirates Suite and features 3 bedrooms, servant's quarters, and a kitchen in a truly massive space.

The enormous suite is supposed to sleep 6 people easily, so larger families and groups can be comfortable. Children over 10 are also welcome in any room. No matter what room you end up in, you will feel genuinely private, with your only visitors being the occasional housekeeping staff or the local wildlife visiting.

Any animal lover will love the gazelle and oryx that will walk right up to your suite or even inside if you forget to shut the doors.

Fine Dining Restaurants

The resort features one on-site restaurant with a small terrace bar open in the afternoon. The main restaurant, Al Diwaan Restaurant, offers meals all day, including a breakfast buffet and multi-course meals for lunch and dinner. The fare is a mix of traditional Arabic dishes mixed with Western influences.

The price of meals here is included in your room, so be sure to enjoy this luxurious taste of the region. The cuisine has many options for dietary preferences, including vegetarian, gluten, and dairy-free, with notations on the menu to pick your food hassle-free.

Since the resort is in the U.A.E, the menu also notes what contains alcohol, so those who don't drink for religious reasons can avoid it easily. The staff is also accommodating to ensure you have a dining experience that is up to your standards. While many all-inclusive resorts have a negative reputation for food, Al Maha has fantastic food you will surely enjoy.

If you'd prefer an afternoon treat, the Hajar Terrace Bar is open from 3 pm to 5 pm and offers treats like pastries, scones, macarons, and coffee. Room service is also available if you want to relax in your private oasis.

The food caters to many dietary preferences and allergies. Remember, all the food is complimentary here, and you only pay for any alcoholic drinks you enjoy besides the complimentary mulled wine found in your room.

Desert Expeditions

As the resort offers two complimentary desert experiences per day, you should be sure to take advantage. While you can see many animals from your room, you have many activities available, including tours of the desert with a knowledgeable field guide.

Most activities are scheduled for 5:30 am or sunset, including falconry, nature walks, sand dunes drives, the camel trek at sunset, and archery, among others. You can also opt for paid activities like horse rides or dune breaking.

Each of these activities is designed to showcase the beauty and wild nature of the desert. No matter which experience you pick for your stay, you will have a new appreciation for this area of the world.

Be sure to book your experiences early in the day or at check-in, so you know what to expect during your stay. Since most activities start so early, you want to be sure you're awake and ready to go before the sun rises.

Spa Experience

The Timeless Spa located next to the reception is a truly luxurious experience. You can experience a massage, a sauna, or other traditional spa experiences here. According to opinions expressed by other guests, be sure to book early since spots fill up quickly, according to opinions expressed by other guests. A small gym with pools is also available to enjoy if you are tired of your private pool at your suite. Al Maha Desert Resort is awaiting you!
