Al Maha has been on my to hit list since living in the UAE, so I jumped at the chance of going. It absolutely met all of my expectations and is absolutely exceptional. From the moment you arrive to when you leave you are treated like a VIP. Sadly we only stayed for 1 night which was by no way... More

Love luxury ..........love it! STOP reading the reviews and just go there..........to hell with the cost, I guarantee you it is worth every single penny! (if you go at the start or end of the season you can find 3 for 2 offers on nights!) This wasn't just luxury - it was perfection. The best food I have encountered in... More

If you are a discerning traveler or simply seeking an unforgettable experience, Al Maha Desert Resort just outside of Dubai is a must see. Here, you can be as involved in the many activities available or be as disconnected in your own realm of relaxation and luxury as you wish. From the outdoor activities tailored to your needs by your... More

If Dubai is on your 'bucket list' then this is the only place to stay! Sheer luxury! 5 nights here is more relaxing than 10 nights anywhere else. We can't understand why this is now classed as Murqquab when it was always previously listed as being in Dubai. "Welcome home" were the first words we heard as we climbed out... More

We decided to visit here for five days before we went to our usual hotel in the centre of Dubai and having read the fantastic reviews our expectations were high - we were not disappointed! If you want someone to unwind from the stresses and strains of modern day life then this is the place to go. Our late evening... More

'So what do you want to do for your birthday this year?' I said to my husband some months back. I should have known what his answer would be.........go to the Al Maha. So we found ourselves on our 4th visit to this gem in the desert. Our previous visits here have been exceptional so our expectations were very high,... More

We were a little apprehensive about going to this hotel as we thought we would get bored and it would be too quiet. How wrong we were!!! Fantastic welcome through to a very sad goodbye. The food - you just couldn't ask for better especially as you can either eat in restaurant or have it set up by the side... More

If there was a guidebook on customer service, Al Maha should write it. They absolutely put other 5* hotels to shame. The resort is outstanding and the staff can't do enough for you, they are friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in you.

I think that this may become an essay. We spent 6 nights here with friends who had visited last year and raved about the place. They told us we would love it and they weren't wrong. From start to finish we thought the whole experience was wonderful, I nearly cried when we had to come home. We arrived very early... More

Al Maha desert resort is, as all the other reviewers already pointed out, a very unique and almost certainly unforgetable experience of relaxed luxury in a stunning (though hot!) natural environment. Al Maha means watching gazelles and the like walk past from within the outdoor pool, riding a well-mannered camel to the perfect sunset spot overlooking the dunes, a la... More
