An even better experience this return visit. Thanks so much.

There are always places that one visit is never enough and you always yearn for a return if your are visiting the country again. Well Al Maha is one such place..I love the peace and serenity of the property. Seeing wildlife roam free, prancing from point to point is pure joy. After watching the wildlife, i had breakfast at the restaurant and it never disappoints. I was pleasantly surprised when one of the staff, Saroj remembered me and said Hi sir, i remember you. Welcome back. His attention to patrons, cheerful disposition is such a delight. It made the visit more memorable. Excellent service and wonderful peaceful scenery. Thanks Al Maha and Saroj for the wonderful experience. Hope to visit again in the future.

What an awesome place

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My wife and I live in Dubai so this was a weekend getaway for us and what a weekend it was.... The resort is just perfect…the setting, the staff, the food, the suite, the décor, the activities (including the fab staff/setting on that as well), the ease of getting around the complex, the wildlife, the spa (including an excellent massage), everything screams luxury even down to the bar cocktails which even in the best of places can be a minor downfall…..all of this made the weekend one to remember. Even the summer heat in this place is enjoyable, having a private pool certainly helps that. We'll for sure be back soon.
