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.

The romance of the desert is calling you. The nomadic Bedouin lifestyle. The rolling sea of dunes. The magnificent emptiness. The wildlife of a desert conservation reserve.

The falcon stoops out of the dazzling Arabian sky and speeds towards your outstretched arm, deadly intent in its eyes. Suddenly you appreciate the thrill and the fascination that hunting with birds holds for the Bedouins. And this is just one of the experiences that help reveal the ways of the legendary desert people and the call of their seemingly empty environment. At Al Maha Resort there are many more; the vastness of the unfailingly blue sky above an ocean of golden sand. Dunes that roll like mountainous seas across a deserted landscape. The wildlife you find on safari. The Dubai-style extravagance of your super-luxurious suite. The irresistible combination of Eastern and Western cuisines. Dining amongst the dunes…

Reasons aplenty for choosing Al Maha for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Dubai.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
