We spent two nights here on a weekend but could easily have stayed longer . The rooms are lovely, beautiful, cosy and the service at this hotel is professional and friendly. You feel that you are always treated with generosity, unlike other luxury hotels where they charge you for every single small thing. I hope that Al Maha will continue... More

My wife and I spent three nights here a few months back and really enjoyed it. Room service is a must, in fact we went to the restaurant only once. The room service comes with white table cloth and feels like a five star restaurant on your private balcony. We did not have the butler dinner as the cost we... More

Our big mistake was having reservations for only two nights, and not three or four. What is there not to like? Impeccable luxury in a beguiling desert setting. Gazelles at your doorstep and grazing next to your breakfast or lunch table. The majestic Arabian oryx in the distance. Multiple escorted activities every day. Your own full size heated pool at...

A wonderful desert experience, with several gentle activities to be closer to desert life. But thankfully we were never far away from our suite with its private pool. The food was delicious, the service superb. Al maha is a wonderful place to relax in.

We stayed 4 nights - and had the most memorable experience. From start to finish, means from being greeted at the entrance, smooth and private check in, to the same way being farewelled, it's special. The accommodation is outstanding, with total privacy (Suite 40). The staff wherever you look at is simply wonderful. We booked the total package including three... More

We are at the Al Maha for a week and I wish we were staying for longer! I can only echo what previous reviewers have said... It's a fabulous place; the location, accommodation, staff and activities are all wonderful. GENERAL: the hotel is around 50 mins drive (85km) from Dubai airport. Very few children here; under 10's are not allowed... More

My wife and i visited Al Maha the week of 1 December for three days. We had outstanding accommodations, a luxurious pool villa with great privacy and super comfortable fittings.

Genuinely peaceful both in the room and around the resort, rooms are pretty much perfect (although not quite enough plug sockets!), private pool is great and the feeling of seclusion makes a pleasant change from being in Dubai. This is more of a hotel for a romantic retreat than a busy holiday however and the distance from the city could... More

This was one of the most romantic places I've ever been too. The villas are secluded and private...you have your own private pool the view is the beautiful desert with wild animals surrounding you....a huge jacuzzi in the room. Woke up at 5am to see ghazals walking to the front porch I fed them carrots and was an amazing experience...... More
