view web site ›'s insider take:

Located on a desert nature reserve a 45-minute drive from Dubai, Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa offers a respite from the city's urban grind and ubiquitous cranes and construction. The 43 air-conditioned tented suites, tastefully decorated with Omani antiques, have private plunge pools and views of dunes: Golf carts provide transportation to the spa, central pool, and dining area when it's too hot to walk. Guest can go on game-viewing drives to see Arabian oryx, gazelles, and dab lizards, and connect with their inner Bedouin during sunset camel rides and falconry lessons. The resort can also arrange day trips into the city as well as 4x4 excursions into the Hajar Mountains. The best part is rereading Wilfred Thesiger's Arabian Sands in your refrigerated Bedouin paradise, waiting for the oryx to pass by to graze on Al Maha's lawn and sip from the private pools.
