A Luxury Collection, Desert Resort & Spa will undergo a comprehensive renovation and reconstruction programme scheduled for the summer.

Extensive renovation of the resort will begin in May with the uplifting and refurbishing of its 42 private suites. New fabrics and designs will be incorporated for the re-upholstering of furniture and drapes. Bathroom fittings and tiles as well as technical and lighting features will be upgraded, along with a completely refurbished pool deck area of each suite.

The restaurant, main building and spa will remain fully operational during the refurbishment, and the newly done up areas will be ready to receive guests by September 2017.

The work will be carried out in phases and most of the work will take place inside the suites. All desert activities will remain ongoing as per the original timings.

"Our focus has always been to heighten the guest experience in all areas of the resort. As we undergo the refurbishment, we are extremely mindful not to cause any inconvenience to our in-house guests. We’re confident that our guests will enjoy the updated look and feel of Al Maha when we’re ready in September," said Patrick Antaki, complex general manager, Le Meridien Al Aqah, Fujairah and Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, in a statement.
