Make the most of the summer deals at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa
Known for its sandy good looks and Bedouin feel, Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is where you go when you need to reconnect with nature, and yourself. With only 42 secluded suites, a staycation in this famed desert retreat is always an exclusive experience. Each suite is completed with a temperature-controlled private pool, meaning tranquillity is in abundance.
Though this desert-scaped resort is highly popular during cooler months, for those looking for a romantic or spa-focused staycation, it also makes a strong case for summer breaks among the dunes.
Spa indulgence staycation
Combining holistic treatments with an immersion in nature, this stay promises that you’ll leave feeling renewed. The one-night package is priced at Dhs4,650 and includes a spa treatment, along with breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort’s signature restaurant, Al Diwaan. For your treatment, a selected massage treatment to relax your exterior and nurture your soul will be provided. All Timeless Spa treatments are expertly given by a team of international spa therapists and suit a variety of relaxation needs – from healing deep tissue to relaxing full-body massages.
Desert romance staycation
Inviting you and your loved one to sequester away in a secluded suite for two nights, this package is for those who want to experience romance in the ultimate luxury setting. For Dhs9,700 you’ll be greeted with a sparkling drink before being shown to your suite amongst the dunes. Guests will venture out into the desert for an activity of their choice, and then take part in a camel ride to a sundowner spot for the golden hour. An epicurean dining experience is also part of your itinerary, as the couple is served dinner on their private pool terrace, under the starlit sky. Your remaining meals can be enjoyed at Al Diwaan overlooking Arabian desert dunes, or from the comfort of your suite. The next day is dedicated to tranquility as you and your significant other are booked for a 60-minute spa treatment at Timeless Spa.
