Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa

Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa

Just a 50-minute journey from the vibrant city of Dubai, the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is set among dramatic rolling dunes and the verdant palms of a lush oasis. This striking desert sanctuary will take your breath away with the splendour of the Bedouin vistas, deep blue skies and an abundance of Arabian wildlife.

Arabian nights

The guest accommodation has been thoughtfully and beautifully designed to reflect the Bedouin heart and soul of Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa. Handcrafted Arabian furnishings and antique furniture create an opulent yet soothing ambiance, where your personal space becomes an idyllic retreat. Private infinity pools and sundecks are the perfect place to admire the spectacular desert views, while the attentive staff are always on hand to fulfil your every desire.

Desert days

The Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa offers guests the opportunity to try some unique and exciting activities. Get up close to magnificent birds of prey with a master falconer, or take a ride on a horse or camel over the dunes and marvel at the jaw-dropping scenery. A desert nature walk will introduce you to the local wildlife, including herds of gazelles and Arabian oryx. For a kick of adrenalin, a dune drive in a 4x4 will get your pulse racing, or travel in style on a wildlife safari.

When the sun goes down

Watching a glorious desert sunset from the Hajar Terrace Bar, while taking high tea or sipping a refreshing cocktail, can only be matched by a delicious fine dining experience in the Al Diwaan restaurant. If you’re after a romantic experience, intimate Dune Dining can be arranged, where couples can sit on beautiful Persian carpets lit only by flame torches as your personal waiter serves up some of the chef’s best dishes.

Once you stay at the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa, you’ll never want to leave.
