We were fortunate enough to stay at Al Maha earlier this month. What a wonderful, stimulating yet relaxing experience where the service was just superb. Staying at Al Maha is like going on a safari but the animals come to you, not vice-versa. You’ll find the Gazelle and stunning white Arabian Oryx right on the resort grounds, just feet from... More

The concept of a hotel in the desert is interesting but its execution is exquisite and cannot be beaten. The hotel rooms are beautiful with incredibly comfortable beds. The pool outside is needed with temperatures climbing. The food is wonderful and never ending and the prices of drinks and the spa surprising reasonable. What makes the place even better are... More

Our villa view was of the watering hole, which is amazing to watch the animals. The sunset camel rides is an absolute... More

Perfect place to spend a few days with someone special. Private pool, the possibility to eat beautifully prepared meals on the private deck. Intimate, romantic and will definitely return to escape the European winter again.
