Choosing your wedding venue will be one of the first and most important decisions you’ll make as a newly engaged couple, complicated by the seemingly endless options to choose from.  Well you’re in luck as today we’ve found you an absolute gem which is as unique as it is captivating!!  The award winning Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is only 45 minutes from Dubai but it’s like transporting yourself to a completely different world.  This luxurious desert oasis has jaw dropping scenery and serene natural beauty. Let’s find out more……

Set amongst Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, with uninterrupted views that go on for miles, is the truly magnificent Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa.  The resort, designed like an authentic Bedouin village, is nestled low into the dunes with plenty of traditional features.  Its 42 opulent and luxurious tented suites are perfect for family and friends planning to stay on after the wedding.  All rooms are lavishly decorated with an authentic elegance.  On top of that they all have their own private pool – what’s not to love!!

There are plenty of magical locations for your ceremony and reception within the resort, but what could be more captivating than saying “I do” with mother nature as your backdrop.  The unspoilt desert is beautifully tranquil and a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai.  After sunset an endless night sky, peppered with stars, creates a truly intimate and romantic setting.

Their private event site is situated away from the hotel and can hold up to 300 guests.  It’s ideal for a relaxed and informal wedding and the views at sunset are out of this world.  Why not add a unique element (which will totally WOW your guests) and arrive at the ceremony by camel!

The dining site is close by and is exclusive for you and your guests.  It can be set up in true Bedouin style with low seating and tents or if you’d prefer in banquet style.  Their Executive Chef can create you a bespoke menu of the finest foods to suit your tastes but we totally recommend the traditional barbeque – it’s exquisite food with Bedouin soul!  If you’re after a smaller but no less romantic event the Presidential Suite offers an enchanting setting.  No matter where your opt to wed you’ll receive exceptional service.

From everywhere in the resort you’ll be surrounded by indigenous wildlife from gazelles, Arabian oryx to camels which will add a really unusual element to your wedding photos!  For any guest spending a few days at this desert retreat there’s plenty to do both in the resort and out from fine dining at the Al Diwaan restaurant, pampering in the Timeless Spa to exploring the local area with qualified guides.

One of the hottest wedding trends for 2020 is having a wedding that is environmentally friendly and more consciously sustainable.   This can be achieved by going plastic free, having recycled paper invitations to selecting a venue which matches your ethos.  The Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is renowned for being eco-friendly and embracing sustainability with its solar panels, water recycling and charging stations for electric vehicles.  So not only will your venue be one of the most romantic locations in the UAE but will also meet your ethical goals!
