On the fringes of Dubai’s bustling and tireless metropolis resides a peaceful desert where time stands still. There is no better way to enjoy this serene landscape than in traditional Bedouin style at Al Maha, a well-established desert resort perched atop the rolling dunes. Its intimate tented suites offer the perfect place to connect with your surroundings, with pristine canvas ceilings all that separate you from the starry skies and sleeping sands. Cream interiors and linens are accented by the rich browns of Arabian wooden furnishings and frames, while French doors with large, open windows allow the desert sun to illuminate your room. Through them, an expansive terrace, either nestled cosily between verdant palms and shrubs or overlooking the undulating landscape, is home to your private swimming pool, the ideal place to absorb the spectacular views – a true luxury in this sun-drenched landscape.
Away from your suite, the Al Diwaan restaurant and Hajar Terrace Bar both offer sweeping vistas of the Arabian landscape, meaning you’ll never be torn from the desert's allure. Enjoy international cuisine and sip rejuvenating cocktails as the sun sets over the slopes and the vivid orange skies match that of the ochre sands. Should further relaxation be required, unwind with a Middle Eastern aromatherapy session, feel revitalised after a soothing massage or indulge in traditional Ayurvedic treatment at the spa.
In addition to simply absorbing your immediate surroundings, opportunities abound to venture out onto the golden drifts to get even closer to this unique place. Relaxing twilight walks and camel treks offer additional glimpses of the desert’s natural beauty, whilst a thrilling falconry show displays some of the region’s most agile inhabitants. For nature lovers, enjoy a 4x4 wildlife drive and admire the gentle herds of Arabian Oryx, with their pristine white coats and striking antenna-like horns.
