If you want to recharge your battery and be far from the madding crowd this is the place. No children under 12 yrs old, seriously private chalets, your own plunge pool and the biggest most comfortable bed Ive ever slept in, not to mention the bath comfortable for 2 😊 2-3 nights stay recommended (1 is not enough). Last time...

We stayed last weekend to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary. We had a magical weekend, we had dinner for two in the desert, we went on a camel ride, enjoyed sun-set drinks on the sand dunes and relaxed in complete peace and tranquilty around our private pool. The staff were simply brilliant and could not have been more welcoming. Special...

We stayed at the Al Maha for one night after having stayed at the Burj Al Arab and The Palace in Dubai, and this was by far my favorite of the three. The villas are secluded and private; you won't see anybody on either side or out front. Waking up and looking out into the desert is a surreal and...

We had a beautiful and a bit secluded villa with a fantastic look into the desert. The service was perfect and a nice activity program was offered (p.e. sunset camel ride, horse riding for experienced people, wild life drive). There are some minor critics which won't impact my 5 Star Rating: Wild Life Drive: We didn't see a lot of...

We spend a few days and enjoyed New Year's Eve and we were highly surprised with the team and the resort. It is an oasis only 45 minutes from Dubai. Very convenient to make a break of a few days. And very recomendable to make a stop in long trips from and to Asia. Nature, relax & service. High level...

About 45-50 min from Dubai. Set in 250sq km. Quite and romantic get away for couples. One restaurant on site. Good food but that's not why you would go there in the first place. Private pool. Great service. Attentive. Friendly. They try to accommodate and make your stay very pleasant. Plenty of activities to do onsite for the adventurous or...

The place is absolutely magical, the suite beautiful, the view on an oasis extraordinary and the service is very good. The gym is lousy. The food choice and quality is bad and it is a shame. You d want to have at least a 1 star chef in such a place. But the worst has been our dinner in the...

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...
