Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai

Just a forty five minute drive from the bustling metropolis of Dubai, guests will find a secluded desert paradise in the Al Maha Resort & Spa. With sand dunes rolling out for miles in every direction, each one of the complex’s forty two private suites promises unforgettable views, where you might be lucky enough to spot free-roaming wildlife from the comfort of your room.

Each of meticulously decorated suites comes with its own private infinity pool, sun deck and, not forgetting the essentials, a carafe of sherry to relax with at the end of a busy day. The hotel’s Al Diwaan Restaurant provides exquisite meals throughout the day – from a breakfast buffet to a three course lunch in the afternoon, and then a five course dinner each evening. Meanwhile, in the Hajar Terrace Bar guests can enjoy a light breakfast or indulge in high tea to fill the gap between lunch and dinner.

The Timeless Spa is at the core of the resort’s ethos of relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests can enjoy time in the state of the art gym, large swimming pool, jacuzzi or book in for a tailored massage treatment. The resort also boasts a number of activities for guests to enjoy, ranging from early morning falconry to nature walks and dune drives.
