This is my first trip review, amazing property and wonderful food. We just came from the Maldives and didn't think anything can beat the service we had there but this hotel is fantastic. Rooms are clean, view is amazing and the food is so good! We were so full after every meal, everyone is nice and excellent service. Special shout out to Ariel, Liam,, Rafio , Catherine for everything!! We will be back!!!

Myself and my boyfriend had an amazing time during our stay at Al Maha. Upon arrival, you're kindly greeted by staff who explain all of the amenities and activities available on the property in great detail. The activities being included is a big plus! Very fun and unique experiences exclusive to the desert. Ask for Kevin as your guide for the activities, he was awesome! He was very personable and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the property and facts about the desert. We LOVED the 4x4 excursion in the sand dunes. Riding camels was also a highlight! The villas are extremely large and luxurious, animals come right up to your infinity edge pool, truly amazing experience! Every detail was meticulously and purposefully executed throughout the property. One word can summarize the experience, magical!

Writing a good review of this resort is like commenting on the size of Mt Everest, however in light of the current pandemic conditions I believe praise where it is due. My bullet points are - Location, Food, Service Quality, Nature. Of note from the Staff - Prakash (great leadership), Kiran (Always a welcome in the restaurant), Ariel, Yogi, Sinead, the Chefs - all contributed to a wonderful stay. The bed is like sleeping in a cloud, a perfect way to relax. The private pool is a fantastic asset, particularly when nature comes so close. Even getting up at 5 a.m. to watch the sunset and hear the sounds of nature was worth the effort. If you need to have a zen-like departure from the hustle of daily life I can think of no better place to visit. Having been to other hotels in the region and seen standards dip with the events of the last year I was concerned Al Maha would be similarly affected. No sign whatsoever of this, thankfully and the resort is as special as ever. A huge thank you to all the staff for making our visit special.

A weekend of peace and bliss awaits you in this truly exceptional spot. The staff could not have tried harder and the exquisite location and amazing wildlife, fantastic Suite facilities and the infinity pool with no neighbors added to the ambiance of a romantic and relaxing time for my wife and I for my special birthday. Thanks to all of the staff and for Marriott in making it all possible.
