Bedouin tents lavishly furnished with Persian carpets, antiques and objets d’art:

The resort’s 37 spacious (75 square metres) stand-alone Bedouin Suites have been conceived as Bedouin tents, but, amazingly, incorporate the creature comforts of a deluxe hotel, lavishly furnished with Persian carpets, antiques and objets d’art – complete with air-conditioning, bath and shower, mini-bar, satellite television, DVD-player, telephone and private terrace area with swimming pool surrounded by a wooden deck and with 180-degree desert views. Or choose one of the superb 175 square metre Two-Bedroom Royal Suites – or, most prestigious of all, the stunning 375 square metre Emirates Suite, with its own swimming pool.

On-site activities:

Guests are entitled to two complimentary on-site activities per day during their stay at Al Maha, weather permitting. Traditional desert pursuits, such as falconry, camel treks, horse-riding and archery, recall a former way of life. For sheer excitement, an outing in a rugged four-wheel drive vehicle cannot be beaten. In contrast, guided nature walks offer a quieter and more informative way to experience the desert.
