One of Dubai’s most famous resorts, Al Maha has underwent a significant refurbishment that is aimed at “uplifting and refurbishing the luxurious timeless desert resort”.
A spokesperson said that Al Maha’s senior management worked closely with Emirates Airline’s Facilities Design team to ensure enhancements which reflect their vision, so that guests can continue to experience the resort’s unique Arabian charm.
“Prior to refurbishment, we received unanimous feedback from our guests – to change nothing as Al Maha is truly remarkable and in essence, timeless. That is why this restoration has been designed to retain what is special and unique about the resort, such as the ambiance, the charm and the heritage of an era gone by. Most of the changes have been made meticulously behind the scenes within the resort, resulting in a completely refreshed look and feel,” said Patrick Antaki, complex general manager.
Arne Silvis, general manager, said: “We take pride in constantly evolving to keep in step with the needs and expectations of our guests, while preserving our very essence. This exciting refurbishment project is the first of its kind since the resort’s inception 18 years ago.
“We are delighted to unveil a fresh and extraordinary guest experience, honouring the fabled sanctuary and Bedouin soul.”
Within suite interiors, the bathrooms have received new anti-slip floor tiling, sleek fittings and vanity counters, while swimming pools have an all-new wooden pool deck.
Exterior setting upgrades focused on the landscape and poolside areas. The new design also includes subtle improvements such as upgrading the air-conditioning units, improved internal and external wall lighting, additional USB ports and power sockets, easier accessibility to master light switches, bedside telephones and bed-side reading lights, along with improved dedicated ladies’ vanity counters.
