Luxury Tents & Tree Houses

by Sarah Tuff

Al Maha Desert Resort, Dubai
At some point during your hour-long, desert-aroma massage at Al Maha Desert Resort, deep in the sandy interior of the Arabian Peninsula, you may hear the clop of a camel, the cry of a falconer, or the thwack of an arrow hitting its target. It's that quiet here in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a 56,000-acre park designed to protect the Arabian oryx and gazelles—and the privacy of Al Maha's guests. If you've just spent three days soaking up the excess of Dubai itself, this is the perfect back-to-basics antidote. The 37 Bedouin suites are modeled after a tribal encampment but with solid walls that look like canvas; they have splendid bathrooms most of us would kill to have in our own homes. Each also opens to a private plunge pool. And did we mention the three-to-one staff-to-guest ratio? See, "back-to-basics" in Dubai only goes so far.
Doubles from $1,700
