Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa

Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is set in 225 square kilometres of pristine desert landscape just 45 minutes from the cosmopolitan city of Dubai, the thriving centre of commerce and leisure in the Gulf. It represents nearly five per cent of Dubai's land area and is the largest piece of land ever dedicated to a single project in Dubai. An oasis of luxury and enchantment, Al Maha lies within an award-winning conservation area where desert wildlife abounds. It's also the only resort within the area where visitors can experience the true beauty and majesty of the desert and observe the indigenous wildlife.

The finest international chefs ensure guests enjoy the very highest culinary standards, wherever they choose to dine - from the relaxed informality of Al Diwaan restaurant and its alfresco veranda, to the intimacy of a romantic meal on the private deck of a guest suite.

With a variety of options from the Middle East and Mediterranean, and with special theme menus featuring Indian, Sri Lankan and Japanese dishes, Al Maha's cuisine is exotic and enticing.

Offering spectacular views of the desert, Al Maha's bar deck is a wonderful place for sundowners. Inside, the bar is richly decorated with beautiful artwork and antiques.

Elegant furnishings, original artworks and sepia photographs of Al Maha's library create the perfect ambience for reading or a quiet game of chess. A selection of videos is also available.

Traditionally a gathering place for informal conversation or business discussions, the majlis is an integral part of local culture - a comfortable venue for social interaction and unhurried negotiations. Decorated with fine antiques, Al Maha's Majlis is no exception to the time-honoured tradition.

Surrounded by indigenous flora and cascading water features, and offering panoramic views of the desert and the distant Hajar Mountains, Al Maha's Jamilah Spa & Leisure Centre boasts state-of-the-art 'LifeFitness' equipment, a sauna, steam room, interior jacuzzi and ice-cold plunge pool.

Complete body massage treatments are available in a choice of single or double massage rooms that connect with hydrotherapy and Rasool therapy rooms. Relaxation can also be found outside, in pool which overlooks the infinite desert horizon.

You are entitled to two complimentary on-site activities during their stay at Al Maha. Traditional desert pursuits, such as falconry, camel treks, horse riding and archery, recall a former way of life. For sheer excitement, an outing in a rugged four-wheel drive vehicle cannot be beaten. In contrast, guided nature walks offer a quieter and more informative way to experience the desert.
