Al Maha Desert

Al Maha Resort is nestled in a verdant palm oasis, deep within Dubai’s magical dune and desert landscape in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and plays a vital role in its conservation. 
Al Maha showcases the heritage and architecture of the Bedouins and also offers a sense of desert adventure. The Arabian Oryx & the Gazelles are the star attractions in the reserve. The indigenous Arabian wildlife can also be viewed from the temperature-controlled infinity pool or sundeck seating area of all Villas. Enjoy two different complimentary desert activities every day as part of the stay.


The Al Maha is approx. 45 minutes by four wheel drive from Dubai Airport in a secluded location in a 225 sq km conservation reserve framed by the Hajar mountains.

Bedouin Suite
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).
