Reviewed 7 June 2017

We spent three wonderful nights here but could have easily stayed longer. The fact that some of the other guests we spoke to had stayed on multiple occasions is a testimony to this hotel's service.
Right from our arrival, after a 45 minute journey from Dubai airport, to our sad farewell we could not have been looked after any better. Every member of staff is a credit to this hotel.
Our 'tent' was a truly luxurious place. Spacious, private, enjoying great views of a waterhole and comfortable. It was a wrench to leave. The private pool was a very welcome retreat from the sun and the outside patio was great for in-room dining.
There were numerous activities included in the room rate, with only horse-riding and dune bashing being extras. We enjoyed the sundowner drinks and the evening camel rides. As we were there to relax we did not partake in any early morning activities.
Aside from the exceptional service and wonderful location it was the exquisite food which we were most impressed with. Every meal was delightful. The menu was varied and the food delicious and beautifully presented. Kudos to the head chef and his team.
Five stars is definitely not enough.
Looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: All the rooms would be excellent. Some are more private and some have slightly better views.

Just 45 mins away from the city lies this beautiful resort. A perfect get away from the noise and routine. The peace one experiences here is just something else. Superb private individual suites with private pool overlooking the desert. Delicious breakfast, very pleasant and friendly staff and some activities in case one wants to get activated. Have to mention Kevin our host for the camel ride activity. A simple ride that was made so much fun with his talks. Our chauffeur was also excellent and an extremely warm and friendly personality. A must go place if one wants to unwind and enjoy some luxurious peace.

This was perfect in every way and was the highlight of our trip to Dubai. The food and service was the best we had while there (with the filet steak far outranking that at the Argentinean restaurant we ate at in Dubai) . Amazing attention to detail: peace and quiet, luxury combined with simple rustic charm was a perfect combination. I am gluten-free and most GF bread is appalling and turns into a mushy sweet mess in the mouth here they managed to produce the most fantastic dark seeded bread with texture and taste. As I had been working flat out since Christmas I needed the 'Big Chill' - Al Maya recharged my batteries and restored my sanity and the spa signature treatment massage completed my recovery. Already planning our return trip to Dubai and another stay at Al Maha

Leave your personal hustles and bustles behind and escape to this desert oasis.
The level of service and attention given to each and every guest is exemplary.
Apart from the tranquil calm, surrounded only my native flora and fauna, the restaurant and food were a surprising highlight. An extensive menu prepared and presented to the highest of standards.
Reward yourself!

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 we didnt leave our chalet and all the fab meals were delivered to our door at no extra cost.

And did I mention the tuna carpaccio...
