Romantic ideas for dining, relaxing and exploring Dubai 

Romantic desert breaks, waterside dinners, spa sessions and more

When it comes to destinations geared towards couples, very few can match Dubai. Here are five of the most romantic ways to spend a Dubai stopover:

1. Anantara Spa, Anantara Dubai the Palm Resort & Spa

The Asian heritage of the Anantara means that a trip to the resort’s spa fuses the classic Thai influences of peace and serenity with the glitz and glamour that comes naturally to any facility located on the iconic Palm Jumeirah.

With 17 treatment rooms and a brand-new hammam facility ready to open in September, the spa isn’t short of treatment options. However, the perfect place for couples has to be one of the two couples' suites, which offer a sanctuary for peace and relaxation.


2. Pierchic, Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah

Perched on the end of its own private pier jutting out into the Arabian Gulf, Pierchic is quite simply the most romantic restaurant in Dubai.

While the restaurant’s excellent seafood offerings are undoubtedly superb, the real reason people come to this restaurant is the stunning location, with amazing views of Madinat Jumeirah and sounds of the sea lapping up against the shore. In terms of romance, this place is, quite frankly, near impossible to beat.


3. Balloon Adventures Emirates

The desert is a majestic place – especially at dawn when the sun is just peeping out over the horizon, illuminating the sweeping dunes, which go on and on as far as the eye can see. And what better way to witness the beauty of the desert than in a hot air balloon?

Balloon Adventures Emirates is an established company that has been offering desert balloon rides for the past decade. They even offer special private flying packages for couples who want a truly personal experience.


4. Bateaux Dubai

An elegant four-course meal with drinks served onboard a stunning glass-enclosed vessel floating along the beautiful Dubai Creek as the bright lights of the Dubai skyline twinkle in the distance. Sound romantic?

Well, this is exactly the scene diners at Bateaux Dubai an exclusive floating restaurant, can enjoy. And at just AED 495 per person for a gourmet meal, drinks and river tour all rolled into one, it’s an absolute steal.


5. Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa

Nestled in the dunes of the Dubai desert yet still only a 45-minute drive from Dubai International airport, Bab Al Shams is a truly unique resort that makes the most of its desert surroundings to provide a truly stunning natural setting.

Bab Al Shams boasts all of the mod-cons and more, with a luxurious spa featuring swimming pool, sauna and couples' treatment rooms manned by skilled therapists, ensuring any stay there puts rest and relaxation at the utmost importance.
