Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai

Dubai, Dubai Desert

Good for Couples

Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa certainly offers something different. Situated in the Dubai Desert Conversation Reserve, it is made up of luxury tents, designed to reflect a traditional Bedouin camp. The resort has unobstructed views of the nearby Hajar Mountains as well as the pristine desert, but is just a short drive from bustling Dubai. It is a peaceful setting, with everything you would expect from a luxury resort such as fine dining and a spa. Choose to dine under the stars on the dunes for a truly memorable experience and make sure you try traditional desert activities for a real taste of Arabia.

Sovereign does not accept children at this hotel, however it is not an adult only property.
