Styled as a luxurious Bedouin encampment, the Al Maha Desert Resort fuses the spirit of a wild and exotic desert safari lodge with the elegance of a 5-star luxury hotel. Set amidst the remote, sweeping sand-dunes of the Dubai Desert Reserve, the Al Maha resort’s lavish, tent-style villas lends a sense of Arabian romance with plush linens, hand-crafted furnishings, antiques, silken pillows, palatial bathrooms and private plunge pools. Airy, full-length windows offer picturesque views of the surrounding sand dunes and desert wilderness. Modern conveniences such as LCD TV’s, DVD players, and complimentary high-speed internet, however, will ensure that you can enjoy the natural environment without sacrificing on modern comforts. Located 40 minutes from Downtown Dubai, the Al Maha is the only resort located in the Dubai Desert Reserve, ensuring the ultimate in privacy. Each guest is assigned a personal guide to assist in organising wilderness explorations on foot, horseback, four-wheel drive or camelback. Experience the thrill of 4x4 jeep trip over the spectacular dunes, or the romance of a sunset camel ride. At the end of an adventurous day, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment or enjoy an exquisite meal at Al Diwaan restaurant, headed by French chef David Miras. Private dining on the sand dunes, private balconies, and in-room dining are also available upon request.
