Al Maha desert resort is, as all the other reviewers already pointed out, a very unique and almost certainly unforgetable experience of relaxed luxury in a stunning (though hot!) natural environment. Al Maha means watching gazelles and the like walk past from within the outdoor pool, riding a well-mannered camel to the perfect sunset spot overlooking the dunes, a la carte lunch of only the finest seafood and regional cuisine, together with the perfect wine to match - all served with five star hospitality, professionalism and friendliness. Very secluded and situated within protected conservation land, Al Maha is a (re)treat worth saving for.
While not directly involved in the conservation efforts surrounding the property (overseen by Dubai's ruler), Al Maha staff do go the extra mile in making the resort as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible for five star cost and logis in the middle of the Dubai desert. Perhaps, investment in solar power for electricity would be worth a consideration, once the right technology becomes available.
