Lucky enough to have visited Al Maha 3 times, wonderfully peaceful resort for complete rest and relaxation. Excellent facilities, stunning location, worth getting up at 5.20 am to watch the sunrise from your private pool, really special. Our thanks to Youseff for making our return visit extra special. The staff are well trained and very knowledgeable from the pool guy to the outstanding field guides. Service and food excellent, on deck dining highly recommended especially for breakfast.

Al Maha - meeting the Desert Fox
Reviewed 1 week ago

Simply the best resort we have visited! Excellent guest services, food quality was superb and the activities were well planned and orchestrated. After a long flight from the States, Alvin (our host) offered us complete use of one of the suites while ours was being readied (we arrived well before check-in, close to 10:00 AM) which was very hospitable and quite unexpected. We liked that suite so much we asked for the beds to be pushed together which staff did promptly and made it into one large king with proper bedding. Our guide Amy was very helpful and knowledgeable and all the other guides were well trained in their craft and personable. We enjoyed the falconry and the camel ride was quite enjoyable. Amy took us on the desert drive which was entertaining. The pool is really not a "plunge pool" but much larger, more like a "garden pool". The room was very exquisite and comfortable. Service in the restaurant was impeccable with staff being attentive but not intrusive and gracious without being solicitous. Just a great few days staying at the resort. We even had two desert foxes visit us at our suite at dusk and one took a little chew on my wife's sandal. They were shy and cautious but curious! Not many places we would go back to since the list is long and life is short, but we will be back to Al Maha

What a wonderful way to spend a stopover in Dubai. Room with own pool was wonderful, service was always exceptional and overall a very restful experience. In the middle if a wildlife reserve, we had full board (no nearby cafes) and chose two activities, sunset camel ride and early morning falconing. A great break to the restful day. We will go back.

Recently spent two nights at this wonderful slice of paradise! The rooms are superb and the location is breathtaking. But what makes it stand out is the service which was truly exceptional - friendly, smiley staff who could not do enough to help make everything as good as you would expect from what is a pricey establishment. Be warned though - the food is so good that if you stay too long you will definitely need some larger clothes!! The chef, Piotr, is clearly very proud (and with good reason) of his job. We were treated to a special menu on our second night and the courses just kept coming - each better than the last! A very special getaway where two days can leave you as refreshed as a week away!

Without a doubt the best holiday we’ve ever had

From the moment we arrived at Al Maha for our honeymoon, the staff could not have done more for us.

Our client liaison explained how it all worked and then showed us to our fantastic Bedouin Suite. We were in suite 19 which is apparently a requested suite for return visitors and we could immediately see why. Overlooking a large watering hole, you could spend all day watching the African Oryx and Gazelles from the deck or the private pool.With an enormous and comfortable bed and a huge bathroom the room was really luxurious.

Although this suite is a bit of a trek from reception and the restaurant, one quick call to reception and a golf buggy would arrive to pick us up and ferry us down for meals.

The food in the restaurant was incredible, a wide variety to cater for all and beautifully prepared and served. The meat that we tried was all unbelievably tender. With such a large menu we were concerned at first that perhaps variety would win over quality but that absolutely wasn’t the case. The hotel are also more than happy to bring meals to you, served on your deck. On our final evening we went for a picnic in the dunes which was spectacular - a really special way to end the holiday.

We were also entitled to a choice of free activities every day. We watched the falconry display and despite it hurting a bit to be up at 5am it was good fun. The sunset camel ride was also good.

All in all a wonderful holiday, with really thoughtful and amenable staff and beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be back.
