Exciting, colorful and focused on giving you the best possible visitor experience – Dubai has to be one of the most romantic cities in the world for couples. When you think of romantic city breaks you usually think of Paris, Venice, or Rome, but Dubai has plenty to offer to star-crossed lovers too, from fun activities to romantic dinners in unparalleled surroundings. Here are five top activities for couples visiting Dubai this year.
1. Enjoying the sunset on the Arabian Gulf
Long, romantic walks on the beach – that has to be right at the top of the list for any romantically-inclined couple. Fortunately, Dubai has miles of pristine sandy beaches where a cooling breeze from the Arabian Gulf takes the edge off the temperature. In the evening you’ll have the twinkling backdrop of the magnificent Dubai skyline, while a sky full of stars stretches above your head, as the azure waters of the Gulf lap against the sand. Could anything be more romantic than that?
2. Up, up and away in a hot air balloon
See Dubai from a very different angle in a hot air balloon ride. You and your partner can soar above the hustle and bustle of the city and out into the surrounding desert, watching the sun rise and the desert animals roam below you.
3. Exploring the charm of the dunes
If you don’t have a head for heights, why not stay on more ‘stable’ ground with a horse ride through the desert? Guided tours take you out of the city and into the dunes of the desert for an authentic Arabian experience.
4. Let all your cares melt away on a couples spa day
Dubai is well known for its abundance of spas, and while many are attached to specific hotels, they are usually open to the general public as well as guests. From sauna and treatments through to relaxing massage and Turkish baths, Dubai spas have something for everyone.
5. A romantic meal for two
Let’s finish off with that absolute favourite for romantic couples – an intimate candlelit dinner. Dubai enjoy an absolutely big number of great restaurants, offering intimate ambiance and delicious food. Just head out to one of Dubai’s hubs, and you’ll be offered a wide choice for all tastes and budgets. If you’re looking for a specially romantic setting, head to Souq Al Bahar at Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, or Dubai Creek – and enjoy the choice of waterfront locations offering beautiful views and a diverse range of tasty international cuisines.
If you’re looking for accommodation, Premier Inn hotels offers you plenty of options in Dubai where you can enjoy the ideal stay with your partner. Whether you and your significant other love outdoor adventures or prefer to be pampered in stunning surroundings, Dubai has plenty to offer couples looking for a romantic break in one of the world’s most luxurious locations.
