People booking flights to Dubai may want to stay at the Al Maha Desert Resort, which has been described as the emirate’s “largest treasure trove”.
People who visit the resort will be greeted by “a unique collection of over 2,000 authentic Arabic treasures”.
Al Maha Desert Resort is celebrating its tenth anniversary and is located in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR).
Eco Luxury, a company offering environmentally-friendly breaks, praised the destination, commenting that it has “been instrumental in creating the conservation reserve within which it is set”.
The DDCR was developed to protect Dubai’s last unspoiled desert, as well as safeguarding traditional Arabian ways of life.
A rehabilitation programme to reintroduce plants and animals to the area was started in 1999 by the Al Maha resort and efforts continue to protect the local ecosystem.
