The first newly-upgraded suites at Emirates` luxury Al Maha Desert Resort reopen for business this week. The 15 new-look suites now feature larger individual private pools, following a major upgrade to get them into peak condition ready to greet guests arriving for the festive holiday.

Al Maha`s wildlife reserve has also been expanded from 27 to 225 square kilometres, 4.7 per cent of Dubai`s land area, and now set aside as a protected area by the Government of Dubai. Resort staff will continue to manage the enlarged `Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve`.

Emirates Group Chairman, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, said: Al Maha embodies our commitment to conservation. It is making great strides in protecting the unspoiled natural desert which remains Dubai`s top visitor attraction.

As the year draws to a close, and with ever-growing numbers of visitors eager to enjoy Dubai`s balmy winter days and superb tourist facilities, final preparations are underway to enable the resort to offer more people the best in luxury travel.

The ambitious project will add 10 new suites, spa, gym, state-of-the-art conference, meeting and communications centres and extra dining facilities. Personal pools outside every suite are being expanded to 7.5 metres by 5.5 metres. The remaining 15 suites are expected to be upgraded next year.

0Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline, said: Al Maha`s ever-growing popularity, and fast-rising visitor numbers, prompted us to carry out this expansion to keep the resort at the forefront of luxury travel.

In a further move to support eco-tourism in Dubai, Emirates, has allocated 10 million AED as Al Maha`s contribution to protecting the emirate`s last remaining pristine desert and indigenous wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
