Romantic Dubai

Dubai has numerous breathtaking destinations and romantic activities for you to enjoy together.

A romantic getaway can refresh your relationship infusing it with excitement and surprise. Whether you are lovebirds who have recently got married or celebrating your golden wedding anniversary. Here is a guide to the ultimate romantic getaway in Dubai:

Romantic Stay Experience
Enjoy some quality time together in a lush palm oasis deep within Dubai’s magical desert landscape. Situated 65 km from the bustling city of Dubai and perched along the alluring golden landscape of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR), Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is the last word in romantic luxury. With its dreamy environs, lavish amenities and impeccable Arabian hospitality, this conservation- led oasis makes for a perfect romantic destination.

Away from the desert, you can also explore the ocean by staying at Atlantis The Palm Dubai. Providing a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the renowned Poseidon and Neptune Underwater Suites at Atlantis boast spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows that peer straight into the hotel’s Ambassador Lagoon Aquarium. Guests can watch the underwater world play out from the three-story suite’s bed, bath or lounge area, and marvel at 14 different species of shark, majestic stingrays and over 65,000 marine creatures.

Romantic Activities
Treat your loved one to a day of pampering at Guerlain Spa at One&Only the Palm and experience spa rituals that have been exclusively designed for the destination. Treatments include the exceptional Orchidée Impériale Prestige Facial, a combination of firming massage, stemming from the aesthetic know- how of Guerlain, and the efficiency of the iconic Orchidée Impériale creams. Eager to relieve stress and boost your energy? The Invigorating Break treatment is perfect for men on-the-move and includes a body massage, a complete facial exfoliation and an eye contour treatment that reduces visible fatigue and restores and replenishes the skin’s tone and elasticity.

For a truly breath-taking experience, a trip to Dubai’s desert is not to be missed. Watch the sun rise over the dunes and city skyline as you take to the skies in a hot air balloon. Exhilarating yet tranquil and undeniably romantic, you’ll fly alongside peregrine falcons as you soar above the desert with uninterrupted, 360-degree views over the rippling sand.

Romantic Dinner
Experience gourmet cuisine, astonishing views across the Arabian gulf and an ‘over-the-water’ dining experience at Pierchic. With the delicious Mediterranean Seafood menu, extensive caviar collection and soups that inspired by the world’s oceans, Pierchic is the place to come for a truly excellent meal, warm service and scenic views. A perfect way to complete you and your partner’s journey.

If you are looking for a place that offers unrivalled views of The Dubai Fountain and the iconic Burj Khalifa, you and your partner could make a stop at Karma Kafé by Buddha-Bar sets the scene for a truly magical dining experience. Set inside Souk Al Bahar, the restaurant serves a fusion of Pan-Asian and international flavours, set against a background soundtrack of oriental and eclectic beats.

With all this and more, Dubai truly is the perfect place for a romantic couple’s getaway.
