If the word “Dubai” refers you to a scene full of amazing buildings with iconic designs and nabobes shopping malls, know that you only have to walk a few kilometers towards the desert to find a strong and well preserved culture. Traveling is this – to get in touch with different cultures, to know other ways of life, to see the sun set in other horizons.
For the privilege of getting in touch with the traditions of the Arab world, with the Bedouin life, surrounded by great comfort, in a true oasis, I recommend the Al Maha Desert Resort. A sensational place with 42 huge suites totally decorated according to local tradition, a one hour drive from Dubai.
Do you know who spent the honeymoon at this resort? Our dear Preta Gil. Is not it a luxury? It is that the hotel has been quoted in several lists as being one of the best and most unusual in the world. Each of the accommodation has a deque with private pool, totally indevasable. Or rather, “almost” because sometimes or another appears a curious antelope or some “Bambi” native of the region to snoop. And let’s agree that you are most welcome to brighten desert life. They are too beautiful!
Sabe quem passou a lua de mel nesse resort? Nossa querida Preta Gil. Não é um luxo? É que o hotel já foi citado em várias listas como sendo dos melhores e mais inusitados do mundo. Cada uma das acomodações tem um deque com piscina privativa, totalmente indevassável. Ou melhor, “quase” pois vez ou outra aparece um antílope curioso ou algum “Bambi” nativo da região para bisbilhotar. E vamos combinar que são muito bem-vindos para alegrar a vida no deserto. Eles são lindos demais!
The resort offers horseback riding, camel ride on the dunes to watch the sunset, falconry demonstration with wonderful eagles, spa and other activities. But if relaxing is your number one goal, know that the tents are super luxurious, each with a super inviting pool, the room is equipped with a mini bar full of delicious little things. All you need is good company!
And after two or three days immersed in the calm of the desert, take advatange to enjoy a few days in bustling Dubai that is full of great surprises. I must confess that I am a fan of the United Arab Emirates. Are you?
I take this opportunity to wish a happy birthday to our diva Camila! Millions of happiness Camila in this new cycle that begins. You are pure light and deserve all the best of this life.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tip and wish you all a great week.
