Fabulous stay yet again at The Al Maha Desert Resort located in a conservation resort. They really make you feel special, welcome and part of the Al Maha Family. The Suites are fabulous, spacious and if you think the private swimming pool in each suite is the reason to come and stay... think again as the food can be compared... More

I treated myself to three days at Al Maha on the way to UK to break the flight. I had no interest in Dubai city or its numerous attractions but the desert and its vast expanses of clear sky definitely spoke to me. And I'd had a tough couple of years so I deserved the spoil. And boy did I... More

Excellent service from the moment you step in the resort up till you leave. Gorgeous surroundings and lavish suites with own private pool which is shielded from the rest of the suites. Food was delicious, and we tried both the restaurant and in-room dining. Should you decide to dine in the privacy of your own suite, the table is set... More

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

'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.

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.
