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.


Located in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is a short drive from Dubai but is a whole world away from the city. As the only Desert Resort & Spa in the Reserve, Al Maha blends perfectly with the rolling sand dunes and its environment is perfect for couples choosing to get away for the weekend. 


Suites at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa are absolutely stunning, and take our word for it. All Suites offer a spacious luxurious setting overlooking the dunes of the Arabian Dessert, private pool & deck for your own use. You may also sight herds of the Arabian Oryx or Gazelles grazing on the bushes from your bed.


Most activities at Al Maha take place in the cooler parts of the day (morning/afternoon). Guests are accompanied by an experienced field guide at all times, who ensures not only the guests’ enjoyment and satisfaction, but also their safety. Morning activities include dune drives and horse riding in the desert whereas afternoon activities include wildlife safari tours, camel trekking and archery.
