The Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa is a once in a lifetime experience. If you have the means, please book at least a one night stay there, in the middle of a conservation area, full of oryx, gazelles and falcons. Each suite is a spacious villa, with its own pool, a large bathroom and windows facing the desert. I was there during winter and the pool’s water was warm. A dip after dinner, with an incredible starry sky was just incredible.

Everything during the stay is included, apart from drinks and spa treatments. In my first night I chose the Sri Lankan dinner (you have to book in advance) and it was delicious. For the tours, a group of very well prepared and friendly South African guides accompany the guests. The whole staff is very friendly and professional, the food is excellent. The overall experience is a must.
