Gallivanting to Dubai for some romantic time with your love? Well, taking pictures in front of Eiffel Tower in Paris or riding on a gondola in Venice- we have seen a lot of these. But have you thought of popping the question on the world’s tallest building or celebrating the honeymoon in a private desert safari?
Dubai is a great destination with skyscrapers, beaches, sand, and cruise. Either you want a lazy lunch at a world-class restaurant or go out of the box and learn horse riding with your partner, this place serves you the widest variation of love.
Here are the top 10 things to do in Dubai with your better half to rekindle the sparkle-
1. Plan for the Desert Safari in Dubai
Perfect for anniversary getaways, desert safari in Dubai is about spending time in style. Whether you both are early risers, who could pick the road trip to the desert and celebrate love with adventure, or are looking for an overnight stay in the sand with deluxe camping, the desert safaris have got you covered. In the morning, you can go for dune bashing, or riding a camel, or competing with each other on the bike. The evening desert safari is a blend of adventure and culture, where at the latter half you would be sitting in Majilis-styled setting accompanied by the most royal and courteous service. The belly dancing, henna designing, unlimited shisha, and the 6-course meal are complementary to the exciting evening. Choose the private package which gives you your personal space and comfort. Cosy and cuddled in the couches and camps, watch the sky twinkling with stars.
2. Fly to the sky in the Hot Air Balloon
The filmiest activity that couples do in Dubai is to take part in the hot air balloon rides. The balloon rises over the endless stretch of sand, the blue seas, and the bustling crowd and looks straight out from a fairytale. Revel in the breathtaking panoramic views from the 4,000 feet. Catch the rare sight of the breaking of dawn, the sun rays falling on the oasis, sand turning to fiery red, and the glittering Dubai skyline. This air balloon ride could be well-planned and well-fitted in the desert safari itinerary.
3. Feel the love in the air of Dubai Miracle Garden
Flowers bridge the path of two lovers. And what can be better to fall head over heels for someone in a place that has got over 45 million flowers? Renowned for the largest collection of natural and fresh flowers in the world, the Dubai Miracle Garden is indeed a symbolic love destination. With its artistic designs and structure from the heart-shaped passageways (where you can take crazy pre-wedding shoots, only with permission) to the Butterfly Garden, it is blooming with romance everywhere.
4. Set a picnic at the Hatta Mountains
Are you the couple who wants a real escape from the urban areas? Head towards the Hatta mountains where you can enjoy a long break with your lover. Spend the day trekking the mountains, relaxing under nature, travelling through the historical Hatta heritage village, having a picnic in the park, lounging beside natural pools, savouring the delectable local cuisine, and enjoying the breathtaking views.
5. Ride a horse at Al Dhabi Stables
Learning to ride an Arabian horse together is great fun, especially in the Arabian playground. Located in the traditional Emirati farming area, the Al Dhabi Stables have the most friendly horses ready to give you a ride of the lifetime. Gear up with boots, hats, chaps, and necessary equipment and the team will train you well. You can discover a set of other animals like cattle, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and rabbits. In this relaxed atmosphere interact with herds, camp under the moonlight, watch the beautiful sunset, and spend quality time with beau.
6. Dine at At.Mosphere
If sophistication and luxury is your definition of love, do not look anywhere else than the exquisite dining at the highest located restaurant in the world, At.Mosphere. Perched on the 122nd floor of the iconic Burj Khalifa, the restaurant boasts an intricate design and interior that will leave you awestruck. The menu is splendid and wide-enough to choose from, the service is unparalleled and the views from the floor to ceiling glass is the real treasure. The Eauzone, Pai Thai, Fish Beach Taverna are few other romantic dining areas.
7. Rejuvenate the body in a Spa
The fashion of going on a spa date is extremely popular nowadays. Following the trail, get yourself a massage in one of the luxurious spas of the Jumeirah. The Palm Jumeirah is the gorgeous man-made island that is dotted with tremendous attractions. Its spas are equipped with massage rooms, snow rooms, saunas, and thalassotherapy pools. One can dive into the utmost calmness and divinity as the masseur eases your nerves and senses. Few hotels for the finest spas are Burj Al Arab, Atlantis the Palm, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, and the Ritz- Carlton. The honeymoon couples receive extra offers and goodies.
8. Book a Dhow Cruise
There is no dearth of top-notch yachts in Dubai, but nothing beats the classic dinner at those old wooden boats revamped to an elegant floating restaurant. Hire a dhow cruise and get yourself a table in the glass-shielded lower deck or the top open-air deck. The Creek dhow cruise offers a splendid view of the vintage buildings, galleries, hotels, small houses with wind towers, national banks, lively markets, cranky streets and other preserved heritage around, while the Marina dhow cruise passes by the most exotic architecture, residential areas, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis the Palm, The Pointe and the Mall of the Emirates. The arrangement is nothing less than the international cruise, like the lavish spread of buffet, live dance shows, and customised services.
9. Lounge on the Kite Beach
Overlooking the magnificent Burj Al Arab, the white sand beach gives us the major adventure goals besides basking in the sun. Favourite amongst the divers and surfers, the beach is all bout watersports and good vibes. It is free, fun-induced and fancy. So, play volleyball, laze in the lounges, go underwater, test your surfing skills and do all kinds of beach activities and more. The 14 km jogging track is ideal for a long chirpy walk.
10. Go shopping in the Best Mall in the world
Now since you have cruised amidst the blowing wind, dine under the stars and unwind at a spa, why not refresh and recharge yourself with shopping. Shop your favourite brands from Louis Vuitton to Gucci and Prada at Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates. These malls have hundreds of stores specialising in coveted brands, numerous entertainment zones and eating outlets. Later, indulge in delicious meals seating on the very comfortable couches with blankets as you watch the blockbuster movies.
