This must be at least our tenth stay at Al Maha and we will be back again. The service you receive at this resort and spa cannot in our opinion be bettered. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is ever too much trouble. The Al Diwaan restaurant is something special and again the service and quality of food is fantastic. Executive...

I'm currently staying at the Al Maha Desert with my girlfriend, and I'm so happy that I just had to share this brief review with you. The place is paradise, a desert oasis that has succeeded all my expectations. It would be fair to say I'm a bit of holiday/hotel snob. I always look for the best resorts and locations,...
