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 Ride

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.

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 – a truly 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.

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.

  1. You had me at the first 3 ! How I would wish for a great movie – dinner date or a hot air balloon ride or that ice sculpture lounge ! Do they have a dress code for the last one ? I would love to visit some day soon

  2. Years ago, I didn’t really care about Dubai, mainly because I didn’t know much about it. Until blogging happened and many of my friends, suddenly visiting or moving in there, and flooding their social media accounts with photos of Dubai. I then realized that it’s popular for a reason, it’s modern, it’s posh, and now with this post, I found out it’s romantic too. What appealed to me the most is the overnight in the desert safari. I have several friends who tried it and they were all gushing about the experience, so yeah I wanna do that too. Hopefully, with a partner. 😉

  3. Interesting list. I never associated Dubai with so much romance.. ha ha. But the notion is changing. Hot air balloon, couple spa and the BBQ do sound very interesting.

  4. I have so many relatives in Dubai, and everyone has been urging me to visit them. This post has got me thinking that I should do it soon! I would love to go and experience the Arabian Night Desert Safari, and also mesmerize the beauty of their beach, overlooking the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. ❤️

  5. I know that there’s more to do and experience in Dubai, but this post is something a visitor would never miss of when visiting Dubai. I love to traipse my feet on the beach while listening to the waves kissing the coast. The Hot Air Ballon and Cruise dinner is somehow amazing and interesting. I never had tried having dinner while cruising, it must really fulfilling. I hope I can visit Dubai soon. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  6. I love these romantic ideas so much! We plan to visit Dubai this year, haven’t been yet! Now I know how to surprise my husband! Your post gave me some serious wanderlust for the weekend! Pinned and hope you don’t mind me sharing it on Twitter!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
