The ultimate desert staycation

Mar 17, 2022

A memorable weekend awaits at Dubai’s uniquely brilliant Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa

The Rooms & Suites

Serenity abounds at enchanting Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, its Bedouin-style suites dotted about the rolling dunes of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR). Authentic interior decorations include regional antiques and local artefacts, but your suite’s exterior is the real draw – dips in your private pool are typically accompanied by the sight of passing Arabian Oryx.

The Food

Dining here is arranged around those heart-tugging views of the wildlife-filled desert landscape. Enjoy fine-dining fare on the veranda of signature restaurant Al Diwaan; a private in-suite dining set up beside your pool; or, most memorable of all, an exclusive Dune Dining experience, for which your lone table amidst the desert sands is illuminated by the striking starscape above.

The Activities

The surrounding desert is both your playground – camel treks, horse riding, archery, falconry, and dune driving are all options – and stimulus for learning more about the Reserve and wider Bedouin culture. Here, the resort’s expert field guides will take you on educational dune and wildlife drives – stopping for a glass of bubbly to drink in the views at sunset.
