This is certainly a unique place. You wont find anything else like it in the SPG portfolio. This is kind of an African Safari without the animals, which of course is a big miss, but you go here for the natural privacy -- and if peace and quiet is what you're seeking than this is the place. Prepare for a...

This is excellence. When something, that was not forecast, is so good that you only realize it when you arrive at the departure terminal and hit reality with a bump. The good food, raw beauty , and the great service were so seamless that I cannot fault it. This hotel/game lodge/spa is the best advertisement for the Emirate of Dubai...

If you need a place to get away to from the high rises of Dubai and get that longed for isolation then this is the place for you. The staff are on hand for everything you need but if you want to be left alone then they work away in the background. The suites are well thought through. Highly recommended...

Wow! A healing place. A place where you are treated as honoured guests on a magnificent estate focused on providing a great experience and on pampering you. There is quality, tasty food included and available most of the day, from 7am till late, either in the main restaurant for 3 meals daily or in the bar off the reception area...

Such a wonderful place, everything was perfect: the suite and the food and the activities! The Bedouin suite is fantastic: the plunge pool and the bed that is enormous and the bathroom as well. The food is really fine dining with lots of choices going from breakfast to lunch to tea break to the wonderful dinners. The activities are good...

We are a couple who have travelled worldwide quite extensively - in our opinion the Al Maha is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We particularly enjoy open space, wildlife and good food.

My family and I went to Dubai over Chinese New Year break. We have booked the Waldorf for our trip, but as none of us have been to the Middle East before, to get the most out of it, we decided to spend part of the trip in the desert. The room rate was full board and in fact, except...
