A luxury desert resort like no other, Al Maha is a truly unique experience. Slip away from bustle of Dubai to enjoy a magical escape to the sanctuary of a remote desert world - pampered by a degree of luxury and comfort worthy of a sheikh! Here is an exclusive, eco-friendly desert resort amid whose serene and timeless surroundings you can experience at first hand the authentic culture and heritage of Arabia - and which probably has no equal in the world for its very special escapist formula. Built in the exotic style of a Bedouin encampment, the 225 square-kilometre resort lies close to the Hajar Mountains within rolling dunes and desert savannah - designed as a protected reserve for the region’s flora and fauna, which includes desert gazelle, the Arabian oryx, Arabian fox, camels and falcon.

The Bedouin Suites are lavishly decorated with authentic and rare handcrafted Arabian furnishings, antiques and artefacts. There are thoughtful touches such as binoculars, an easel with art materials and a writing desk, should your creative instincts be inspired by the landscape and the wildlife you spot.
Bedouin jars for water and dates can be found at most doorways and in the beds that line the tiny road between the suites; chests sit at the end of every bed and ornate Omani doors in heavy wood are framed in glass tables.
Each private deck with sun loungers provides a secluded area for relaxing quietly or as an intimate setting for a personalised dining experience (simply select from the in-Suite menu and staff will appear to prepare your table for breakfast, lunch or dinner). The private infinity pool spills out into a never ending vista of dramatic desert views.

The Royal Suite combines some of the richest living experiences with an authentic ambience that is inspired by the many Arabian artefacts and antiques.
A spacious lounge and two luxurious bedrooms, each with a custom-made super king-size bed and handcrafted furnishings, offer a relaxing experience in total comfort. The wide terrace with sun loungers, private deck dining area and sizeable pool present expansive views onto the open desert. Indigenous wildlife, such as gazelle or Arabian oryx, will frequently be seen grazing near the Suites.
Together with exemplary facilities, attentive service and delightfully quiet surroundings, the Royal Suites offer an exclusive experience and a place of restful solace.
Air Conditioning
Private Pool
The Emirates Suite is set in a secluded spot away from the main part of the Resort, offering luxurious comfort and privacy in equal measures.
Emirates Suites each have two large bedrooms, with custom-made super king-size beds and handcrafted furnishings. A spacious lounge incorporates a dining area and outside there is a courtyard and deck around the pool for alfresco dining and relaxation.
Residential quarters for your private staff and a kitchen of generous proportions allow a degree of autonomy away from the main Resort. The Emirates Suites provide a stylish haven to relax in the company of friends and family or for luxurious entertaining.

The art of falconry dates back to the 13th Century BC. In the desert regions of Arabia, falconry served as a means of supplementing the Bedu's diet. Today the art of falconry has become more sophisticated with the use of four-wheel drive vehicles and tracking equipment but this traditional sport still forms a vital link between the Arab and the desert. Falconry displays take place during the cooler parts of the day due to the sensitivity of these animals. Different species of falcons are "flown to the lure" in a display which demonstrates both the falcon and the falconers abilities. The falcons may be handled by guests, under the supervision of one of the field guides, during and after the display.

Arabian horses have been part of the Arabs history for as long back as one can imagine. These horses have been used for transport when crossing deserts and even when fighting wars. Today the Arabian horse has found its way around the globe; fetching high prices as quality stock are bred for different forms of racing. Guided horse rides are generally conducted in the morning or afternoons when it is coolest. Al Maha has a selection of Arab and Thoroughbred horses, which unfortunately are recommended to experienced riders only and maximum weight limit is 85kg.

For the energetic, please feel free to request a guided walk through parts of the reserve. One can have the opportunity here of experiencing the desert environment in its entirety. Binoculars will prove useful for the purpose of bird and animal viewing and are available in the suites.

Not for the feint hearted. Enjoy an adrenaline rush as your field guide takes you on an exhilarating 4x4 drive in the big sand dunes outside the resort.
