Welcome to the Al Maha neighborhood…
A five-star luxury desert resort situated in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, the Al Maha Desert Resort blends into its environment.
On offer to the day-tripper are a series of activities, inclusive of a gourmet lunch.
The wildlife drive is a gentle and informative visit to the desert animals’ natural homes – the red sand dunes and ghaf forests.
Mainly you will see the adorable Arabian Mountain Gazelle,
and the majestic Arabian Orynx, or “white orynx”, both are native to desert areas of the Arabian Peninsula.
By the way, in case you are wondering, yes all weekenduae photos are copyright. But if you ask I wouldn’t mind sharing my photos with you; however, please make sure you ask first. You can find my contact in the Home menu.
Horse riding can be your preferred means of transport, if you like.
And admiring the desert’s keenest hunter up close is a wonderful experience.
If you want to test your own falcon eye, an archery challenge may be for you.
While a camel trek through the desert to witness the sunset is a must in my view.
Here are the Al Maha Desert Resort’s camels, all dressed up and ready to ride.
In between the superb lunch and the activities you choose, lounging at the spa’s pool is a great way to chillax.
Not only a pool, but where else can you sunbathe and observe the tranquil wildlife at the same time?
Al Maha Desert Resort is a peaceful place, accepting only a limited number of adult guests per day – so that your experience is un-rushed and truly luxurious.
(no children are admitted)
The spa beckons.
And comfortable niches to relax and lounge with friends are throughout the resort.
In the company of a loved one, the Al Maha Desert Resort atmosphere brings complete peace.
