Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa
Thirty miles south of Dubai and framed by the Hajar Mountains, the Al Maha is the first eco-tourism resort in Dubai, and it offers a perfect combination of privacy, tranquility, and luxury. Built in the style of a traditional Bedouin encampment but
with a luxury hotel ratio of three staff to each guest, the Arabian hospitality is unrivalled and the service impeccable. Suites have sturdy tented ceilings, hand-woven carpets, and Arabian antiques as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that allow guests to absorb the desert beauty. Stone bathrooms have enormous tubs and “his and hers” vanity areas leading to a private chilled plunge pool and wooden veranda. Guests are also encouraged to visit the Jamilah Spa, which features single and double treatment rooms linked by a public area to an ‘infinity edge’ relaxation pool. The cuisine is a blend of Arabic and Mediterranean influences and the dining area is located on an open-air sundeck amid the red sand dunes and under the vast desert sky.
