We have just returned from the most relaxing and unadulterated luxury break we have had in years. This was our second visit to Al-Maha. The first was over 7 years ago when we stayed for 3 nights and we promised ourselves to come back but did not realise it would take so long. This time we went for 6 nights... More

My wife and I visited Al Maha for a short 3D/2N break to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The resort is less than a 1 hour drive from the city of Dubai, however, when we were there it felt like we were in another country altogether. Each room is a private suite with its own... More

Everything was perfect. You have to experience it to understand it. Quiet, secluded, unpretentious, laid back. The animals of the reserve are magnificent and our terrace had animal visitors throughout the day and night. All you had to do was sit comfortably and be awed as they passed by graciously allowing you to have a glimpse into their lives.

We have just returned from our second trip to Al Maha, this time we took our 3 daughters aged 16 19 and 21 and stayed in the 2 bedroom Royal Suite. We were impressed from the start with Ankoush greeting us on arrival and remembering that we visited last year, even though it was only for 2 nights. The attention... More

You must put this on your bucket list. It's beautiful, quiet, has wonderful views and the food is absolutely delicious. Just divine and very romantic. The wildlife was awesome and the camel sunset safari was great fun.
