Al Maha is 45 minutes away from Dubai. This distance makes it a serene and secluded location where you and your family can enjoy a variety of desert activities planned for you. This seclusion is evident when you arrive at their grand front gate, with a beautiful sandy road (about 8Km) to the main building.
This giant hotel site, which they are not wrong in calling “a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa,” means there exists active roaming wildlife around you. Every single room provides a beautiful desert view. These 42 private suites will make you experience all the tranquilized traditions of Arabian life.
