About Us

Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa lies nestled within a green and verdant oasis amongst some of Arabia's most impressive dune and desert landscapes. Resembling a luxurious Bedouin encampment, the resort is just 45 minutes away from Dubai. This secluded hideaway resort offers personal and seductive experiences with great hospitality, privacy, and absolute comfort. Al Maha’s 42 Bedouin-inspired luxurious suites offer tranquility while adopting the vision of responsible tourism.

SUITES

All villas have spacious bathroom facilities, and are equipped with an air conditioning, satellite TV, safe-box, internet connection, mini bar, tea & coffee making facilities, wooden deck with deckchairs and sweeping tent roof.

Four categories of suites ranges from 75 square meters, one-bedroom Bedouin suite to 530 square meters, three-bedroom Presidential suite offering guests wide variety to choose from. All suites are lavishly decorated with authentic and rare handcrafted Arabian furnishings, antiques and artifacts and provide supreme comfort with custom-made super king-size bed and/or twin beds. The finest of all suites at Al Maha, the three large bedrooms Presidential suite Majlis lounge, spacious lounge with own extensive kitchen, dining facilities and have residential quarters for guests' private staff.

All suites are finished with private temperature-controlled swimming pool that provides endless view of the Arabian Desert from their private pool deck.

DINING

Indulge from the comfort of your pool deck or dine at ‘Al Diwaan’ alfresco on the veranda with spectacular views of the conservation reserve and devour in international and indigenous delicacies. Just a level above Al Diwaan Restaurant is the Hajar Terrace Bar with loungers and cocktail tables, ideal place for high tea.

SPA

Surrounded by indigenous flora and cascading water features, Timeless Spa treatments are available in a choice of single or double massage rooms. Relaxation can also be found outside, in our main pool which overlooks the infinite desert horizon.

Timeless Spa also features gymnasium, a sauna, steam room, interior jacuzzi and ice-cold plunge pool.

ACTIVITIES

Two complimentary on-site activities per night's stay for guests on full-board package

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.

FACILITIES

Traditionally a gathering place for discussions, the majlis is an integral part of local culture - Al Maha's Majlis is no exception to the time-honored tradition.

Our state-of-the-art business facility offers Bluetooth capability, Internet access and private switchboard.

Best of the Best

Your thoroughly indulgent suite at Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa includes all meals and two activities per night’s stay (choose from a camel ride with sundowners, archery, nature walks, and more). Beneath its stretched canvas roof, each suite boasts handcrafted furnishings and traditional Arabian artifacts, as well as a private swimming pool and wooden deck. A truly everlasting oasis, the Timeless Spa offers rejuvenating treatments and massages using international brands; these services are also available on your private pool deck. You’ll dine sumptuously at Al Diwaan restaurant.

Advisor Tip

After your spa treatment, take a dip in the infinity-edge pool overlooking the desert or the large, glass-enclosed whirlpool, both great places to glimpse local wildlife.

Health & Safety

The luxury desert resort has ambassadors who are trained to provide first aid medical assistance in cases of emergencies. A fully-equipped first aid room is located in the main reception area. Guests may contact our Guest Services Agent should they require any service. The Resort uses the services of Rashid Hospital in case of emergencies. While all assistance will be provided to transfer guests to the hospital, any related medical expenses must be settled by guests. Transfers by car or helicopter are estimated to take one hour.

On the back of current pandemic, signage throughout our resort ensures guests and associates adhere to social distancing in all public areas. Temperature checks at each entrance, sanitizing stations are available across the resort, all high traffic areas and surfaces are cleaned and disinfected at increased frequency. In our restaurants, we offer digital menus and reduced seating capacities in compliance with local and state mandates.

Sustainability

Apart from preserving flora and fauna within the vicinity, Al Maha Desert Resort ensures that they go up and beyond from standard regulations and takes proactive measures toward sustainable environment. The resort is also home to the luxurious Timeless Spa that features a large, temperature-controlled infinity pool. To maintain 43 swimming pools at an ambient temperature of 26-28° Celsius, the in-house engineering team installed solar power heaters, thereby reducing its energy consumption significantly. Up to 370,000 kilowatt of energy is been saved every month, compared to previous system. With a focus to make the luxury desert get-away more environmentally-friendly, the engineering team created a special recycling water system for irrigation purposes, and drastically reduced the use of freshwater throughout the property’s gardens and grounds. The system was installed at the inaugural stage and saves up to 7,500 cubic meter of fresh water. The team is also credited with setting up a special system to convert used kitchen oil into bio-diesel, which is then collected by recycling centres.
