Staycation: Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa

The legendary oasis hidden within the desert dunes


The Rooms

The four types of suites at this iconic desert retreat have long been championed as the most desirable of dwellings, with their private pools set aside the sand dunes and beneath the nightly show of stars. Their recent renovation has further enhanced the attraction to guests keen to experience the ultimate in sophistication and personalised service. Able to accommodate six, the Presidential Suite is the pinnacle

The Food

With tables set on an al fresco terrace to embrace the still of the magical desert landscape, the resort’s signature fine dining restaurant, Al Diwaan, marries a stunning setting — at both sunrise and sunset — to fabulous food. The meticulously planned menu here hits a series of high notes, with dishes crafted from the finest ingredients and plated to artistic perfection.

The Activities

To enable you to make the most of your spectacular surrounds, the resort’s lengthy list of memorable activities is yours to tick off. Spend your mornings absorbed in the art of falconry, on a desert drive or nature walk, or galloping across the dunes on a guided horse ride. And afternoons atop a camel or in the comfort of a luxury 4×4 for a wildlife safari. Then it’s time to have any lingering stresses soothed in the sublime spa.
