Great hotel in a great location. Everything about the hotel is great. Food, staff, rooms and activities are excellent.
Winnie at check in was a huge help and set the tone for a great stay.
We cannot wait to return

Rated 4 out of 5 by donci Disappointment in value for money
the service did not live up to the luxury the property would require. We had to wait for the pick up at arrival, the pick up was late for the sunset tour, the TV was not working, the phone was not working and nobody greeted us with the usual SPG welcome and still did not receive the SPG bonus points after a month for the platinum membership. The property is exceptionally beautiful, so that is why it was exceptionally disappointing to witness the lack of premium service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heike65 Amazing and gorgeous relaxing desert resort!
The experiences in this beautifull resort were unforgettable and extraordinary overwhelming!
The silence, the accomodation, the gorgeous and delicious food, the view from the private bungalow, the wild life, the staff - all together made our stay extremely relaxing and outstanding!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OO32 Beautiful destination with little flaws
The overall experience was great. Beautiful room and bathroom, nice amenities, attentive and caring staff. The private pool wasn't clean though, so couldn't fully enjoy the room experience. Breakfast a la carte options are very variegated and nice, the staff at the restaurant very welcoming and responsive. Jennifer at the reception made our day with her positive attitude and natural behavior.

Yet another outstanding stay at Al Maha. This was our 3rd visit and every time we go back we love Al Maha more.
Outstanding service, as always. Food fantastic and the Spa was first class.
Can't wait to come back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IainM Excellent relaxing break
Our visit to Al-Maha was intended as a late 25th Wedding Anniversary getaway and did not disappoint. The location, attentiveness of staff and the quality of the food were the best that we have encountered in all our travels. Due to flight times, we arrived very early in the morning - around 5 hours before our earliest check-in time and were promptly met by one of the senior managers, offered breakfast, given a tour of the hotel and made to feel very welcome. We've already recommended the hotel to a number of friends and family and hope to return ourselves in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shiny653 Lap of luxury!
Stayed with my wife in a lodge overlooking the oasis as 25th anniversary celebration. Perhaps we were a bit mad staying in the desert in the middle of summer but all of the rooms were well air-conditioned and the availability of the private pool was an absolute godsend. This was all about luxury and that's what we got including not even having to walk from our accommodation to reception/restaurant/anywhere. This did mean that every now and again there was the faint hum of a passing electric buggy and, yes, there was a glimpse of an occasional aeroplane but - by and large - we felt completely removed from the rest of society especially when sitting on verandah or in the pool and assorted wildlife comes flying, walking or crawling by...it was bliss!
Food, drink, staff - all excellent. Room touches - binoculars, art material, decent coffee - all excellent.
Do the camel trek, do the dune ride and if you especially like a bit of solitude and musing consider the desert forest. Bring a decent camera/photographic device with a decent zoom.
