Al Maha, now a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa is described as the perfect getaway from the buzz of Dubai, just 65 kilometres away, but feeling like centuries away!Al Maha features 42 exclusive suites each with its own pool and deck, overlooking the endless sand dunes and lazing wilderness of Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
Now managed by Starwood on behalf of the Emirates Group, Al Maha is located inside 225 square kilometers of what they describe as alluring desert landscape and also described as offering matchless hospitality, privacy and absolute comfort adding to the romance of the desert.
The resort offers a series of activities to ensure the Al Maha desert experience provides lasting memories for years to come, with guests able to select up to two different complimentary activities per night’s stay as part of their package, which are designed to provide the greatest first-hand experiences of this sensory landscape.
Activities on offer include archery, falconry, desert safaris, horse riding, wildlife drives, nature walks, camel trekking and a number of exciting off-site activities.
All activities at the resort take place under the direction and supervision of an Al Maha Field Guide, who is an experienced and dedicated conservationist and has extensive knowledge of the environment, flora and fauna of the region.
Embracing the culinary cultures of the East and West, dining at Al Maha is truly an international experience, exciting to the palate, yet remaining relatively simple, honest and ‘homemade’, using the finest ingredients sourced from around the world, guests are offered dining experiences at the signature Al Diwaan restaurant, dune dining, deck dining or in-suite dining.
