In the land of Arabs, love is always in the air. In most parts, lovers celebrate on Valentine’s day. But love blossoms all year round here in Dubai, where all the colors of love shine bright.
1. Film Screening at Claw BBQ
Claw BBQ does not only serve some of the most delicious food in Dubai, it also matches its menu with a great movie. Claw BBQ is situated at Claw, Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai. It is a lovely restaurant with beautiful ambiance and food. The menu changes alongside the highlighted movie of the night. This sets for a perfect romantic dinner setting for couples.
2. Hot Air Balloon Rie
If you’ve heard of “love is in the air,” here in Dubai they make it quite literal. The Hot Air Balloon Ride is one romantic thing that you can do. You’ll fly over the Salomon dunes, with its picturesque views of the Dubai Desert Safari and a great sunset to boost. If you do not want to wake up early, no need to worry! The desert looks equally stunning in the evening.
3. Chillout Lounge Dubai
The Chillout Lounge by the Sharaf Group is the first ice lounge in the Middle East. It has finally reopened with major and awesome changes. A restaurant made fully in ice – truly a unique experience in the middle of the desert. From ice sculptures, seats and tables, the interior will surely cool you down. That makes for another reason to huddle closer to your loved one.
4. Walk on the Beach
Wanna get out of the bustle of the city but don’t have much time? Head out to JBR Dubai Marina Beach. Walk along the beachside and enjoy the sea breeze for a relaxing activity. You can also enjoy the food stalls and shops around the Marina.
5. Dhow Cruise Dinner
Dubai is a shipping city where you will find more Abras than Dhows. Abras are small traditional boats used for fishing. Dhows are their bigger counterpart. And you can use them as your romantic set-up for a dinner in the middle of the sea. The hospitality and the food that they offer is none less than a 5-star hotel. The added advantage is that all this starts right from your hotel gate and roams around the sea, giving you a beautiful scenery while enjoying your dinner.
6. Overnight Desert Safari
Cap that wonderful day with an overnight desert safari in Dubai- the cherry on top of the cake. Ride out on a Land Rover to the desert wildlife for a different experience of Arabian Night Desert Safari. Bask in a truly unique Arab experience, while enjoying some local cuisine and some belly dancing performance.
7. Romantic Dinner In Bhuj Al Arab
Have a romantic dinner with the Dubai Skyline view from a private sitting area. An exquisite experience that you can customize- from personalized settings, messages to the food served. A nice candle arrangement of different shapes flowers on top of the table and some anniversary gifts waiting for you. There is a dedicated team of waiters and sommelier to look after you. These along with a delicious 6-course meal and a photographer. Surely, that cannot be matched anywhere.
8. Go On A Spa Date
Regenerate yourselves with a spa date. Enjoy different kinds of spa services available around the city. You can go for Indian, Thai, Chinese, Ayurvedic, or Acupressure- you have it in Dubai. Make it also a Couple Spa or Paired Spa to boost your love connection in your hectic life.
9. Tour the City in A Helicopter
Wanna get higher? Get the view of the city of Dubai from a helicopter! Flying above the skyscrapers of the city of Dubai and witnessing the major landscapes from the sky is an amazing experience. It lets you see all the major tourist destinations in Dubai in one scope! This makes it a small journey in itself.
10. Romantic Date on a Yacht
Wanna be fancier? Go for a yacht! Yacht services are offered by different firms both for groups and couples. A luxurious yacht for a couple can be a vivacious night to spend with your partner. As the sun sets the tropical sea turns blue to glittering dark blue accompanied by a slow breeze of the sea makes the environment even more romantic. Treated like a royalty, all this will make your romantic date the one to be remembered.

Booking a Flight. When finding cheap flights, we try a combination of search engines to ensure we’re not missing out on the best deals. We use SkyScanner, Expedia, Kiwi.com, Kayak, and Google Flights, then compare them to the prices shown on the airlines’ website.
Booking an Accommodation. We prefer staying in hotels. Booking.com is our favorite when it comes to finding the cheapest rate. Again, it won’t hurt to check the hotel’s main website. They usually offer discounts for booking directly with them. For last-minute booking, check out HotelTonight. There are also other types of accommodation like Airbnb, hostel (Hostelworld has the largest inventory), and Couchsurfing.
Sightseeing & Tours. We like DIY tours – it gives you freedom and flexibility. You can take advantage of the CityPass and Sightseeing Pass. But we have joined in several tours that maximized our time and made our trip easier. Feel free to check out Intrepid, and Trusted Tours & Attractions for discounted offers.
