If your soul is searching for serenity and your sweetheart is after some quality time together, then a stay at Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa could be the perfect mini break for you.

There’s something utterly romantic about the wide open spaces and soothing silences of the desert. Designed to resemble a Bedouin encampment, this heritage and conservation hideaway takes glamping to new heights.

Boasting two royal suites, two Emirates suites, one presidential suite and 37 Bedouin suites – one of which will be yours for a couple of nights – all of these can be found sprawled out across a 225-square-kilometer landscape with an ocean of golden sands before you. Your private pool will overlook the dunes and you’ll also be able to appreciate glimpses of green oasis, lush palms and the most surreal sunsets. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the Arabian oryx and desert gazelle.


If you’re one for getting out and about, we suggest a guided nature walk or a spot of archery, falconry, camel trekking and horse riding. Push all thoughts of dieting to the back of your mind and choose to dine under the stars or in the privacy of your room. As you build memories that will last forever, end your evenings with a cocktail in hand while you do some romantic stargazing from the terrace.

For an unforgettably romantic splurge and to wash away any remnants of wedding preparation stress, visit the resort‘s Timeless Spa and slip into pampering timelessness under expert hands.

The Prize: 2-night stay for 2 adults in a Bedouin Suite with your own private pool inclusive of breakfast.  Dinner for two on one of the nights.
