Al Maha

With a fiery-red backdrop of rippled sand dunes that clash against the opal-blue sky, Al Maha resort is an exotic oasis set within the 16-square-mile Conservation Wildlife Reserve of Dubai. Named after the majestic horned Arabian Oryx, the destination rids itself of usual desolate-and-stark desert connotations and is inhabited by unique ecosystems, where both endangered and indigenous animals roam freely and undisturbed. A rich diversity of elusive animal species can be spotted from the resort, giving the feeling of living on safari and escaping to the animal kingdom. Guests can watch the living desert from their magnificent Bedouin suites, where luxury comfort and spectacular Arabian decor provide an indulgent atmosphere. They are a combination of two worlds - one of transcendent, elegant living, reflecting the cosmopolitan vibe of Dubai and one of simpler, Bedouin values from which Arabian traditions stem from. An airy and polished theme runs throughout the resort and to a host of exceptional restaurants. Organic dishes are meticulously prepared by culinary masters and served on outdoor terraces or on top of a pristine sand dune. Balmy days can be enjoyed poolside while drinking in the mesmerising scenery or exploring the mysterious desert where lost tales and secrets remain buried within the layers of time . 

Why We Love This Hotel

Location: Set on a sandy canopy amongst a shady palm oasis in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, the Al Maha resort is the epitome of Bedouin luxury.

Service: Guests will be welcomed with warm Arabian hospitality upon arrival to Al Maha and will receive a personalized and attentive service throughout their stay, right up until the moment they leave.

History: According to legend, Al Maha was a wondrous oasis lost in the desert. A curious wanderer stumbled upon a protruding twig after following his falcon and returned the next day to unearth the spring hidden here and brought life back to the barren desert.
