3 Tips for a Romantic Stay in Dubai

3 Tips for a Romantic Stay in Dubai

Lucky you! You and your partner are jetting off to Dubai to spend a few days basking in each other’s presence. If you are looking to have the most beautiful time imaginable, read on for three tips for a romantic stay in Dubai.

1. Spend your evenings in luxury.

Praised for their hospitality, hotels and resorts in Dubai are undoubtedly some of the world’s best. At these luxury hotels and resorts, you and your partner can spend your time unwinding, reinvigorating yourselves, and enjoying each other’s company.

You can find luxury hotels by the beach, downtown, or in the Creekside (the old district of Dubai), which provides you with an abundance of prospects for spots that are right for what you and your partner are looking to experience.

However,  to guarantee that you have enough cash to indulge in all the other aspects of your trip (food, tours, souvenirs), then make sure to book accommodation at one of the best hotel deals in Dubai.

2. Include some cultural stops in your itinerary.

While it may seem appealing to spend your entire vacation in the hotel room, the fact of the matter is that you came to Dubai to get a taste of Dubai (otherwise, you could have opted for a staycation!). To ensure that you make it out of your room, make sure to incorporate some cultural stops in your itinerary.

While in Dubai, there are many “must-see” destinations, such as The Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain (perfect for a romantic stroll),  the Dubai Miracle Garden (the world’s biggest flower garden), and The Dubai Mall (the world’s biggest shopping mall).

Additionally, you and your partner may be interested in spending time exploring Dubai Creek (the most significant reminder of the city’s history), The Third Line (an art gallery that focuses on contemporary Middle Eastern Art), The Coffee Museum, Alserkal Avenue (the hipster area of Dubai), and Souk Madinat Jumeirah (a modern twist on the traditional Arabic market).

While you are taking in all the culture that Dubai has to offer, make sure you avoid any chance of “hanger” (when you get angry because you are hungry!). After all, no-one wants to be traveling with someone who is in a bad mood.

There are plenty of restaurants in Dubai, but one of the easiest ways to keep this hunger at bay is to research the best hotel restaurants in Dubai as you can be guaranteed to have a great meal in a central location.

3. However, also spend some time pampering yourselves.

Luckily, a significant part of Dubai’s culture revolves around pampering sessions, so a couple of treatments or workout classes should also be on your agenda.

If you are looking for a rejuvenating couples massage, then you want to head to Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah. Set in the most stunning location, this spa aims to cater to your individual needs, while also offering relaxation areas, an infrared sauna, steam rooms and plunge pools to ensure you never want to leave.

When in Dubai, you should opt to experience an Arabian bath, and Anantara Spa is where you can make that happen. Located within Anantara, the Palm Dubai Resort, Anantara Spa is distinguished for its remarkable marble Turkish hammam and highly professional team. The hammam is a custom that has developed over thousands of years, and you will understand why it is so popular when you are unwinding and purifying your body in a foam bath.

To keep your bodies moving, look to book a yoga class at 136.1 Yoga Studio. Here you can choose from yin, vinyasa, hatha, and various other styles of yoga. The studio faces the Dubai Marina and the enormous windows ensure that the room is always filled with light. Bliss!
