We’ve put together some of the best ways to celebrate - check out our list below:
1. Soar through the sky then sip sundowners on the sand dunes
Make it a desert romance with this intimate experience. It’s surprising how quickly you can forget you’re in Dubai once you head out to the desert. The award winning Al Maha resort is located within the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, and is a sanctuary of luxury. There’s a fantastic day package that includes a thrilling seaplane tour of Dubai. After soaring through the skies and taking in Dubai’s dramatic skyline you’ll be picked up by private car for Al Maha. On arrival you’ll be treated to a guided 4WD desert drive, exquisite lunch and finish up with sundowners in the desert. You also have full access to the resort’s facilities including pool and spa for the duration of your stay, we think this is one of the romantic things to do in Dubai.
2. Retreat for a luxury staycation
There’s nothing more relaxing than a luxury staycation at a gorgeous resort. You’ll want a place that has at least a five star rating, a pool to relax next to, a spa to unwind in and a decent restaurant and bar to satisfy your taste buds. Enjoy a lazy buffet breakfast, make use of the resort facilities, play a game of tennis, go for a SUP, or simply indulge in an afternoon snooze. If you can’t leave the kids behind, any resort worth their salt will have a kids club or baby-sitting service for exactly this occasion. Make it special and get in touch with guest services to arrange a chilled bottle and chocolates to add the finishing touch.
3. Sail away on a sunset cruise
Dubai has a great network of waterways and canals, as well as kilometres of pristine coastline. Cruise Dubai Marina, sail along the Jumeirah Coast or head into the Dubai Water Canal for a close up view of Downtown. A private yacht charter ensures a bespoke experience, arrange for some canapes and bubbles then sit back, relax and sail away into the sunset. Every charter comes with a full crew, and if you’re looking for romantic things to do in Dubai you can’t beat an afternoon out on the water with your loved one.
