On yet another trip to Dubai, after spending one week in Dubai for a vacation; decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and experience something new and more authentic.
Booked two days before and availability was limited but we managed to get a bungalow for two nights.
A truly fantastic and different experience. From the decor and more downplayed decor that was in contrast to the flashiness and splendor of the city, to the fact that each bungalow is far away and has club cars to deliver you from the lobby to your personal suite with its own pool; which was temperature controlled, and we asked to turn it up as soon as we checking in- within a few hours it was perfect.
The view was breathtaking and the oryxes come right up to the bungalows however do not get too close which was an amazing experience.
the rooms were perfect and the service and staff outstanding. The extra activities to chose from spectacular.
Food was very well prepared and menu diverse.
All in all; a perfect two days and will definitely be visiting again.

Room Tip: front line bungalows have the best views of the desert

This must be one not if not the best desert villa luxury resorts in UAE. The villa's are very secluded yet not boxed in - with superb views of the desert and wildlife in the conservation area it's set in

Pure relaxation on the large deck area and private pool !

My only minor issue was being told at breakfast at 10.30 on the dot we had 5 minutes to get something from the buffet before it's cleared away. Seemed a little rushed for a luxury resort where being relaxed is top priority (even though we appreciate breakfast was to 10.30)

Overall fantastic - including Kevin our guide who was very good and very welcoming as well as all the staff. We had a lovely time and definitely recommend visiting.

We are leaving Dubai after 2.5 years, and will miss Al Maha. It is the perfect antidote to to the city.
Our most recent visit coincided with my wife's birthday, and we were made to feel very special from start to finish.
The staff are consistently excellent, and the food is perfect. It's a beautifully tranquil desert location, and the hotel oozes class. Not overblown and ostentatious, but tasteful and in keeping with the environment.

This is our fifth visit in as many years.

It's good to see that the hotel is finally getting the renovation it deserves. This should put the Al Maha back where it belongs, as the number one in it's field.
This is a very special resort with staff to match. The tranquillity and peacefulness is a major draw to help relax and recharge the batteries. Nothing is to much trouble and the food is the best!
If you are looking for a truly relaxing vacation with all the little extras to make your holiday that little bit more special, this is the place to be.
A big thanks to every one at the Al Maha, we should be returning again next year.

This is a beautiful hotel. We stayed here 6 years ago, but it was even better than we remembered. The villas are well thought out, with plenty of clever space for everything & many thoughtful touches. The public areas are decorated with taste & have many interesting artifacts to browse. There are quiet places for everyone to sit & admire the wildlife, which wanders around. Service is impeccable & done with charm, courtesy & with no fuss. Food - breakfasts, lunch, afternoon tea & 5 course supper is all beautifully presented & I was delighted with my vegetarian menu, which gave me plenty of choice.

The only negative comment is that the drinks are very expensive, even for Dubai standards, so an all-inclusive option would be good. Having said that, it does feel very mean to say this when so much is provided as complimentary - chocolates, dates, local drink & sweets, etc.

If you are planning to stay in Dubai & do desert activities as day trips, don't bother - stay here instead & do it much more authentically.

Room Tip: All the villas are lovely - we stayed in Villa 9, which has a view over the desert & plain &...
