Anyone heading out on flights to Dubai for their holidays this year or next may wish to stay at an exclusive ecotourism resort on the edge of the Emirate city, it has been suggested.According to Matthew Lee of the Telegraph, Al Maha is an exclusive desert resort geared up for couples who want to participate in environmental causes, but don’t want to slum it on volunteer schemes where the accommodation is a mud hut.
Indeed, Al Maha is a five-star resort on the edge of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, which it helps to fund.
The money generated through tourism has helped to reintroduce the Arabian oryx, which was extinct in the wild until recently.
“One of Al Maha’s many charms is watching oryx and gazelles mosey up to the villas to laze by the pool,” Mr Lee attests.
Tourists can also go on nature walks and visit the on-site spa while staying at the desert retreat.
Anyone interested in booking flights to Dubai may be interested to know that Emirates Airlines offers services there.
