    Al Maha Desert Resort, DubaiAround 65km southeast of Dubai lies the luxurious and romantic desert oasis of Al Maha, a collection of 42 private villas nestled among orange-hued sand dunes and lush date palms. The unique resort sits on the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, the UAE’s largest natural heritage park, which makes up 5% of the country. Each Bedouin-inspired villa comes with its own private deck and infinity pool, and if you get up to watch the sunrise (it is worth the early start) you may find yourself sharing the water with sprightly gazelles who wander past for a drink.

    The emphasis is on outdoor activities, such as kayaking through mangroves, learning to scuba dive in the Arabian Gulf and mountain biking the rough terrain. Guests can also take wildlife tours to see native oryx and gazelles as well as imported cheetahs and giraffes. And after all that exertion, hit the rather wonderful spa for Bedouin-inspired treatments such as the signature “Sands of Time” treatment, which uses a unique sand compress.
