Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa
Area: Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai
Al Maha is just a short 65 km drive from Dubai and is located within the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve where Arabian Oryx and desert gazelles wander freely.
Resembling a Bedouin encampment, this secluded hideaway resort offers matchless hospitality, privacy and absolute comfort. The exceptional accommodation facilities feature 37 Bedouin suites, two Royal suites, two Emirates suites and one Presidential suite, each with its own pool and private deck overlooking the infinite lines of sand dunes and lush palms. Included in the price at Al Maha are two on-site activities per night stay, ranging from archery to a falconry display, camel trekking, horse riding and guided nature walks and wildlife safaris.
But what really distinguishes Al Maha is its notable dedication to conservation. Windows are designed not to conduct heat, all water is recycled and private vehicles are strictly prohibited to ensure the reserve and its wildlife are left undisturbed.
