Dubai’s desert setting and dazzling sights offer a magical setting for romance. Enjoy torchlit dinners in the dunes, gaze at the illuminated skyscrapers on a dinner cruise, or make a grand romantic gesture by chartering a private yacht to sail along the coast. Here are some ideas for a romantic stay in Dubai.
Tour the City by Private Car
Make your sightseeing special on a private city tour via car or limousine and be whisked around sights such as the Burj Al-Arab and Dubai Marina in a cocoon of comfort and privacy by a personal chauffeur-guide. Up the luxury on a tour that includes a flexible itinerary and admission to the Burj Khalifa’s observatories to enjoy the views—most romantic at sunset.
Take a Dinner Cruise
Join an evening cruise to dine against a backdrop of Dubai’s city lights. Add a dash of old Arabia by choosing a trip along Dubai Creek aboard a wooden dhow, or go for the wow-factor on a cruise around Dubai Marina featuring dazzling skyscraper views.
Splash Out on a Yacht Trip
A private yacht cruise along Dubai’s coast is one of the most decadent ways to see its 21st-century cityscape. Charter a skippered motor yacht, bring your own drinks, and whisper sweet nothings as the sights go by.
Book a Couples’ Spa Experience
Enjoy a spa experience for two at one of Dubai’s lavish spa retreats. Relax in a steam room, whirlpool, and hammam in a private couple’s suite and enjoy a massage, scrub, and other therapeutic treatments alongside your beloved.
Fly Above the City
Dubai’s skyscrapers and palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah island look incredible from above. Take a private helicopter flight to see the sights from the air, perhaps choosing a tour that includes luxury return hotel transfers in a Hummer limousine.
Enjoy Dinner at the Atlantis
The Atlantis hotel is one of Dubai’s most glamorous dining spots. Prebook a table at one of its eateries—choices include the seafood restaurant framed by the giant, fish-filled tanks of its aquarium—for a dinner to remember.
Dine in the Desert
Dubai’s desert has a timeless beauty, especially at sundown. Head into the dunes by 4WD on a private experience that starts with a dune bash and finishes with dinner for two in flickering torchlight—perfect for a proposal or celebration.
