When you think of a honeymoon or a romantic vacation what do you generally picture? Virgin, pristine beaches or maybe snowcapped mountains with meadows underneath them? Why not do something different? How about you head to the shopping capital of the world – Dubai!
From the tallest buildings in the world to skydiving over the palm islands. From driving the fastest cars in the world to experiencing a world of shopping. Dubai, one of the fastest-growing cities, is now also a preferred honeymoon and romantic getaway for couples all over the world.
The cobblestoned streets, the fireworks on Burj Khalifa or the yacht trips to the ocean – all these are things make Dubai a perfect couple’s getaway. In this blog, we have highlighted the most romantic activities you can indulge in here.
Romance in the Desert
If you are fond of the luxury experience and want your own private space, deep in an oasis of the Dubai desert, head to Marriott Al Maha, a luxury villa hotel located deep in the desert far from the bustling Dubai City Centre. This private oasis, nestled among beautiful palm groves, mesmerizing dunes and emerald canopies, offers complete tranquillity and unforgettable views of the sweeping plains and Hajar mountain massif. Spend quality time with your loved one in a private pool, take camel back rides and enjoy their signature desert safari at night! Nothing beats watching the exotic sunset from the comfort of your pool or your private sit-outs with panoramic views of the desert glistening in the golden magical sunsets.
Dubai Mall – Shop till you drop
Nothing can pamper your better half better than shopping at Dubai and Dubai Mall is the perfect place to do so! If you want to spoil your partner with gifts and surprises, the mall has plenty to offer. It takes half a day to just explore the mall. The mall plays host to the best brands in jewellery and apparels. Brands like Chanel, Gucci, and Prada have huge stores here. If you want to do something more than just shopping, head to the Dubai Mall Aquarium that has a collection of Sand Tiger sharks, Rays, reptiles, birds and other amphibians.
Burj Khalifa – Enjoy Tea on Top of the World
Located next to the Dubai Mall is Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world and an awe-inspiring structure. Just standing below this mega building gives you goosebumps when you look up! Imagine having high tea on top! You can take your partner all the way to the 122nd floor to Atmosphere, Dubai’s most popular high tea venue. Towering above the Dubai Mall and nearby surroundings, you can see almost all of Dubai on a clear day. Indulge in an unforgettable high tea up in the clouds with a table for two right next to the edge of the building!
Dubai Mall – Watch a Fountain Show
Dubai Mall is a destination in itself and the fountain show is not to be missed out! Every half hour, there is a fountain show accompanied by music, laser show and local performances in front of the mall and just below the Burj Khalifa. The best way to watch the fountain is either from the high tea venue on the 122nd floor. If you want a more grounded view you can book a table at the II Restorante at Armani Hotel. The tables on the terrace offer an amazing view of the perfectly synchronized fountains that dazzle in the lasers. It is said that this is one of the best fountain shows outside of the one that takes place in Caesar’s Palace, USA.
If you still want to make the experience even more exclusive, hire an Abra (local boat). These traditional wooden boats cruise by the Dubai Mall and you can witness the magical fountain show from the comfort of your boat. The fountain shoots water to a height of about 900 feet, which is equivalent to 45 stories, 50 projectors brilliantly colour the fountain with astounding light effects.
Dinner in The Sky – Dine like a bird
If you or your partner have wanted to dine in the sky, then this is your chance. Dinner in the Sky is a concept that is fast catching up across the globe and can be experienced in Dubai as well. At a height of 50 meters above ground, you will be served some of the best food Dubai has to offer along with panoramic views of the Dubai Marina, Atlantis, Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa.
Cruise in style in a private limo
Looking to spend some quiet time with your partner while sight-seeing in Dubai? Book a private limo and enjoy private, luxurious time with your loved one as you cruise through the streets of Dubai. The limo tour will take you to all pre-decided spots in the city such as Lincoln, Chrysler, Hummer or Ford stretch limos. All limos come with plush leather interiors, drinks, and a chauffeur.
Dhow Dinner Cruise
Away from the busy streets of the city, you can enjoy some peaceful moments on a 2-hour dhow cruise along the Dubai Marina. The cruise operators pick you up from your hotel and take you to the Marina from where you embark on this romantic dinner. The trip aboard the wooden dhows offers fascinating views of the Dubai skyline, the marina and the dazzling reflections of the colourfully lit skyscrapers. You would also get to enjoy live performances onboard coupled with a scrumptious fare of international cuisines served in a romantic setting.
