Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa

One hotel in Dubai offers the chance to experience two worlds: the fascinating, endless desert, and the regal opulence of modern Arabia.

There are astonishing vistas of rolling sands. There are palm trees. There is swimming. But the Al Maha resort in Dubai does not offer beach holidays. A different experience awaits.

Al Maha Resort and Spa in Dubai invites guests to explore the ancient culture and traditions of desert peoples; and discover a nomadic way of life amidst shifting sands. Falconry, camel trekking, horse riding, dune drives in go-anywhere 4x4s and walking through the carefully-conserved, natural desert – they’re all part of this Dubai hotel’s raison d’être.

But after exploring the 25 sq Km desert reserve, an oasis beckons.

And what an oasis it proves to be. One of the most sumptuous hotels in Dubai, Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa is where eco-tourism meets unabashed, five star luxury. Expect Bedouin Suites with sun decks and private swimming pools. Plus tented ceilings, traditional fabrics and rugs, hand-crafted furniture and stone bathrooms – alongside ultramodern refinements. Choose a Royal, Emirates or Presidential Suite and opulence is taken to a new level.

A level that is echoed in the spa - with its single and double treatment rooms, hydrotherapy and infinity-edge pool – and Al Maha’s restaurant, serving gourmet Mediterranean and Arabic specialities.

The Al Maha Resort in Dubai offers two differing worlds – both infinitely appealing.
