Dubai has desert as one of its main attractions with several daily safaris and other attractions connected to its beautiful desert. Still, surprisingly the metropolis is still weak in offering many luxury desert resorts. However, the good side of this is that it might motivate you to visit the neighbouring Ras Al Khaimah or Abu Dhabi for seeing some other greater desert resorts in and around Dubai.
Here, we will introduce you to three of the well-known top quality Dubai Desert resorts:
Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa
The Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa is simply beautiful, looks breathtaking. Having been built in ancient Bedouin style, this is one of the best great desert resorts and a perfect hideaway from the traffic and noise of the city. Still it does not lie too far from it, enabling visitors to visit the downtown, if needed every day. The Spa has great treatment offers and the interiors and services of Al Maha are superb. The rooms are furnished with original and local (!) manmade wooden furniture. Of course, the Hotel has all the luxury you would expect. Its site and beautiful swimming pool gives wonderful chance for taking dozens of photographs of the Dubai Desert. The Al Maha lay in the heart of the Dubai Desert Reserve, a protected area.
Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa
This elegant resort is one of the few most beautiful desert resorts of the United Arab Emirates, with all the luxury you might expect from Dubai. The Bab Al Shams Desert Resort has 115 rooms and it is located just about 45 minutes far from the International Airport of Dubai. The interiors of the hotel mirror the ancient Arabic-Bedouin culture and the Spa has excellent treatments. This complex has altogether sixteen buildings, all double-floored offering different type of rooms and suites for its visitors, such as the One-bedroom suites, the Junior Suites and the deluxe suites. Most rooms have their own balcony or terrace as well. The desert resort is best to visit in the early spring when the weather is not that hot as in the summertime.
Al Sahra is one of the new desert resorts of Dubai, which would have been part of the huge Dubailand project, but now, it is operating as an alone standing project. The Al Sahra desert resort is highly visited, because of its closeness to Dubai city where you still feel the greatness and relaxing atmosphere of the Dubai Desert. The Al Sahra also has a great amphitheatre. Al Sahra for this reason hosts several events, from marriages to corporate events.
These are the top and in fact the total desert resorts which are located in or close to Dubai. If you feel the need to get further, visit other desert resorts of the United Arab Emirates, such as the Banyan Tree Desert Resort in Ras Al Khaimah, which is still not far from Dubai.
