An hour inland from Dubai, this modernist resort lies in the heart of the Mlihea region, which was nominated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Bronze Age tombs, pre-Islamic forts and other archeological sites shed light on civilizations that resided here more than 130,000 years ago. It’s truly an escape from the glitz of the city, but for all that it doesn’t skimp on luxury and comfort: Each of the five accommodations—fashioned from an old clinic and grocery store—have access to a saltwater pool, restaurant and outdoor spa, all bathed in the sand tones of the surrounding desert. As they take in vistas stretching to the horizon, guests find seclusion amid history.
