Rated 5 out of 5 by Bannism4 Al Maha Exceeded All Expectations
Having read glowing reviews of Al Maha we came with very high expectations - we were not disappointed. From the warm and friendly welcoming on our arrival to the exceptionally well managed departure, staying at Al Maha was a delight. We have never encountered such friendly and knowledgeable staff - from the housekeeping team through to senior management - we were always greeted by name (even from staff we had not met!) and nothing was too much trouble. This is by far one of, if not the best hotel experience both my wife and I have had and are already planning a visit for next year. Special thanks to our guide, Gerard. His knowledge was exemplary and we now have a much better understanding of the desert animals, reptiles, birds, flora and fauna. Our one to one time with him in the desert made our stay even more memorable.

We LOVED al Maha.. the biggest surprise was that the desert is alive with life. But the best surprise was that the food was out of this world. The chef/food manager does a superb job. Truly world class dining..
truly a great experience and one we will recommend to everyone!

This resort could not get any better. We absolutely loved every minute of our stay. Hated to leave and want to return for longer next time.
The staff were supremely good and attentive to every need. Every aspect of this place was of the highest quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 Can understand why guests come back here
Great location -- a gigantic room with a private pool in the middle of the dessert
Excellent service -- everyone made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived
Plus great field trips to choose from with informative guides!

We stayed as a couple one month ago. As a professional from the hotel industry I enjoyed the stay and noticed as well certain details. lThe resort is beautiful, the suites are amazing, top class amenities, the private pool is definetely a gem! The Spa was very nice, the therapist was professional and very kind (hot stone massage for lady, I forgot her name unfortunately).
We ordered room service and the quality of the food was 5 *, only to mention that the server forgot the bread and some other items so he had to come back.
For breakfast, drinks order took quite long time (+ 15 minutes) considering we were almost the last table. And then the first evening for the turn down service, they came to the suite just 5 minutes before we were picked up for our Spa Treatments, which I found not very organized. With limited quantity of suites, they could have checked activities before going, in order to give a more personalized service.
Overall, the place is fantastic, ideal to relax and disconnect from crazy Dubai. Looking foward to come back!
