Timeless Spa at the Al Maha, A Marriott Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai

It was our time to relax at the Al Maha Luxury Desert Resort and Spa. Nestled among the sands and palm groves outside of Dubai you will find this serene and majestic place.

Entrance to Timeless Spa and Main Pool

The spa has an exotic feel and we experienced exceptional customer service, not only at the spa but throughout our stay.

First, we were greeted at the spa entrance by a gazelle, one of the natives often seen prancing throughout the resort and around the Bedouin suites.

Once inside, hallways will lead to the gym, outdoor main pool, lounge area, massage rooms, or the plunge pool.

The indoor waiting area is a quiet place with a water trickling fountain and where hot tea with dates are served.  

The massage rooms are tranquil and face the outside main pool. Our massage therapist gave us some time to change our clothes and to make ourselves comfortable.

The warm oil massage was a calming and the aromatherapy (straight from Paris) relaxed all of the senses.

To the rear of the spa is the outdoor main pool.  There are several sitting areas, lounges and umbrellas for relaxation. It was an inviting and peaceful ambiance that allowed us to enjoy the pool and bask in the glorious desert sun.

The view beyond the pool is of the Dubai Conservation Reserve, where you might catch a glimpse of a camel trek going by.
