Great service. Attentive. Friendly. They try to accommodate and make your stay very pleasant. Plenty of activities to do onsite for the adventurous or...

My wife and I were lucky enough to be taken by my daughter and son in law for a belated mother's/father's day present. She had arranged a day package involving massage, full lunch in the restaurant and an afternoon enjoying the resort facilities. Absolutely everything was top notch - it's difficult to know where to begin. From entering the reserve...

We spent 2 days at Al Maha and loved every minute. The chef spoiled us 3 times a day with just the best food, all inclusive. Haute Cuisine Dinner on the terrace overlooking the dessert. ( wine comes at an extra charge, these are the UAE after all). The staff is very friendly and creates a personal, family style atmosphere....
