Al Maha, the original UAE desert retreat, is still the most seductive and romantic. Offering sophisticated simplicity in the wonderful silence and peace in the dunes.

Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa is an secluded haven set within a 225 square kilometre desert conservation reserve. Just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport, this tranquil green and verdant oasis is surrounded by some of the region’s most spectacular landscapes; rich with protected wildlife and filled with experience of traditional Bedouin pastimes.

Al Maha means Arabian oryx and truly encapsulates the spirit of the resort as guests can watch herds of these majestic creatures at close proximity as they drink from the nearby watering holes. Like a desert camp designed for discerning Arab sheikhs, the resort offers a majestic experience; be it the luxurious suites, the peace and tranquility, the fine dining or the opportunity to mingle with the desert’s most beautiful animals.

The 42 tented suites are positioned to ensure privacy but also to provide panoramic views of the desert landscape. The interiors are finished with locally handcrafted bespoke furniture, Arabian antiques and artefacts to create a luxurious take on the Bedouin lifestyle. Here you will discover the magical silence of the desert.
