My husband and I stayed here as part of an anniversary trip. From my reading about this place, I had very high expectations and I was not disappointed. The resort is set in the middle of the Dubai Conservation Area and it is quite a drive once you make it to the gate of the preserve to the actual resort...

I visited the Al Maha for High Tea at the Hajar bar with my family and really enjoyed the experience. I combined the trip to the Al Maha with a stop at Jabal; Hafeet, which made it a rather long drive from Abu Dhabi, but I made it so that we had tea in the afternoon, before heading back to...

This is one of the most special and spectacular places I have ever been to. You need to register beforehand, even if you're just planning for a day at the pool. The atmosphere is very personal and individual. The entire service team pays attention to detail. We enjoyed the quietness of the desert and opportunity to lay back.

There are many aspects of this desert resort to praise. The location is peaceful and calm. It has the feel of a wildlife safari lodge but you can walk safely through the desert as there is nothing there that is going to eat you! Wildlife is ,however abundant and you will get many different forms of fauna and flaura to...

Loved the rooms with the plunge pools looking out into the desert. The activities were great with good guides. Camel riding unique with the sundowners halfway but wish the ride could be a little shorter or one way. Also enjoyed the falconry and dune rides. The food was very good and considering the food and activities are included the price...

En route to South Africa, via Dubai we decided to experience a stay in the desert, with Al Maha apparently the number one choice. Certainly this is a very different experience to Dubai city. The tranquility and beauty of the desert is a major draw for Al Maha. Equally we found the suites to be very spacious and comfortable and...
