When are you thinking of going?

I have just booked 3 nights at the beginning of August.Look at my post to see what other people have said,most say 1 night is not enough,and if you can stretch to 2 some offers out there for 3rd night free. Great deal.

Is it worth it for one night, probably not as all you would have time for is the welcome drink, experience your wonderful "chalet" have a superb evening meal, some very early morning activities, breakfast and depart.

You would be unable to enjoy the peace and quiet of the place the sheer enjoyment of the surroundings and the just complete magic.

It is very expensive but it is all inclusive except for the drinks.

We have stayed on a 3 for 2 deal in May and were given the bad news that we had been upgraded to the Presidential Room.

IMHO beats the Burj and goes down in my memory as one of the best places I have ever been to.(maybe the upgrade helped)

If your budget doesn't stretch to 2 nights you might want to consider Banyan Tree Al Wadi which is also amazing. It's in Ras Al Khaimah which is approx 1 hour drive from Dubai. There is also an offer on Living Social

We`re also interested in staying at Al Maha Desert Resort as part of our trip (in combination with Jumeirah Beach Hotel) but it´s really terribly expensive, so we`re also struggling with the question: to book or not to book!?

Does anyone know if Al Maha does have any last-minute-deals? Are there any special offers/cheaper rates available at certain times of the year and where do you get/book those special offers in that case? Also, how do you arrange transfers to get there and how much does this cost?
