Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve

Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa

Al Maha is renowned for surpassing guests’ expectations. Its 42 opulent Suites nestle against the majestic desert dune landscape and guests enjoy matchless hospitality and close up encounters with the wildlife of Arabia. This combination of exclusive privacy and the romance of the desert environment combine to make Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa an unforgettable luxury destination.

Al Maha Resort leads the way in supporting the region’s conservation efforts.  The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve around Al Maha is a protected haven for the many species of mammal and birds of Arabia. The Resort has also contributed to large scale habitat rehabilitation programs, including the propagation of over 6,000 indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses, and the re-introduction to the region of the free-roaming herds of endangered oryx and other desert wildlife.

The preservation of the natural desert habitat is integral to Al Maha’s appeal and success as one of the leading Spa Resorts in Dubai, Arabia and the world.  Al Maha’s efforts have been internationally acknowledged with The World Legacy Award from National Geographic and the Arab Cities Award for Architecture and for Best Environmental Design, among many others.

From the very beginning, Al Maha has been instrumental in creating the conservation reserve within which it is set.  By staying with us, you will be actively supporting our dubai desert conservation programmes, as a portion of our turnover is used directly by conservation projects.

One of the reasons the resort and the reserve area was originally chosen was due to its ability to protect one the largest, and last remaining underground water reservoirs. Three bore-wells on the reserve provide all the resort water from these ancient aquifers. Free and rid of the heavy demands of spray irrigation and industry these precious aquifers are now sustainably utilized, monitored continuously, and showing no reduction in quality and level from the day Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa began in 1999.

So the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR) was formed with Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa as its centrepiece.  Sponsored by Emirates Airline and managed by a dedicated team of Conservation Officers on behalf of the Government of Dubai, the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve is United Arab Emirates’ first National Park.  The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve team care for and nurture nearly 5% of Dubai's total land area, whilst conserving the remaining wildlife in Dubai, which is one of the world’s fastest-developing urban regions.

Recommendations From our Field guides

Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is a luxurious Bedouin encampment in the desert, 45 minutes from Dubai. Built to be a conservation-led resort and situated on a total of 225 square kilometres pristine desert landscape, Al Maha is home to 42 private guest suites. Diverse wildlife and desert activities including camel trekking and desert safaris ensure exceptional experiences for every guest whilst the Timeless Spa serves the guest with a truly rejuvenating and relaxing experience.
Camel trekking is an unique experience that provides guests with an authentic approach to the Bedouin life in the desert. It is a fun and relaxing way to travel through the desert, and admire the serenity of the dunes as it waves itself into the horizon. Finally, the guests will arrive at the camel trekking location, which has a picturesque view of the resort, to watch as the sun disappears behind the horizon and illuminates the sky with a golden glow, while they have a refreshing sparkling beverage to end off a beautiful day.

The guests are taken outside of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve for an active 45 minutes of dune bashing.  After driving for around 20 minutes, the cars will stop and the guests have an amazing view of the desert and the Hajar Mountains.

Falconry is a fantastic way to start the morning. The guests are politely welcomed with an introduction to a variety of species.  Each falcon has its own story. While you watch the falcon fly in the soft morning light, you are taken 2000 years back to when falconry first began. It is an extremely educational activity.
