Everyone knows that Dubai is filled to the brim with plenty of things to do. You’ve got glitzy skyscrapers and glamorous mall, you’ve got orange-colored deserts that are hotbeds for adventure and of course – there is the exoticness of the Arabian souks and the Emirati culture.
Dubai’s landscapes make it the perfect place to indulge in all types of couple activities. You’ve got everything – from beaches, to deserts to mountains. Whether you want to pop the big question, dreamily watch the sunset with your significant other, or simply go out for a romantic dinner – you’ve got it all in Dubai.
Imagine the scene….The glow of fire, the sheer silence of a vast desert, gorgeous landscapes sprawling for miles, and a nice hot Arabian meal…That’s what you’ll experience if you go on a desert safari with a dinner option. The hypnotic moves of a belly dancer juxtaposed with the sweet taste of mint tea, and a sunset to beat all sunsets – having dinner in the desert is one of the top couple activities you can have in Dubai.
Burj Al Arab:
Al Muntaha Lunch Contemporary French CuisineVery little thing beat the glimmering façade of Burj Al Arab acting as a backdrop to your dinner with your loved one. My two favorites include Pierchic and Rivington Grill. They both have great views of Burj Al Arab and Rivington Grill specifically has beautiful views of the Madinat Souk. If you wish to wow your loved one with a private dinner on the beach then Al Qasr Beach Dinner is highly recommended.
Luxury Canal Dhow Cruise
Al Muntaha Restaurant is nothing short of opulent. You’ll see it the minute you get in. Right inside of the Burj Al Arab, the restaurant emanates a luxurious vibe and is the perfect place to have a romantic dinner. You’ll be dining at an elevated restaurant with panoramic vistas of the water stretching for miles. The food is a seamless blend between European and Arabian food – so you’ll be enjoying the best of both worlds.
There are plenty of ways you can enjoy the skyline of new Dubai – walking around it, jogging, going for a romantic dinner, driving around, even taking a helicopter ride over it. But one of the most serene ways you can experience the skyline of the city is by floating quietly amidst its shining colors and history. By going on a dinner cruise, you’ll be able to admire the skyline and have a delicious dinner at the same time.
Make sure you don’t miss out on the Arabian coffee (kahwa) and feast on the best appetizers together.The glass-encased dhow cruise perfectly incorporates tradition with modernity and you’ll get to see Dubai’s top attractions. This is all thanks to the new artificial water canal that was built that allows both tourists and locals to do this.
If you want more of a luxurious experience, I recommend trying the 4-course luxury dinner cruise. You’ll get to enjoy panoramic views of the canal, but you’ll also get a fresh meal, fresh drinks, and a chocolate fondant.
With this tour, you can meet a personal photographer who will take a private photo shoot for you – whether you want something contemporary, candid, or just for fun. What people usually do is pose in front of your favorite locations or go to the top attractions, or just go to your own couples’ spots and take pictures.You know what’s better than having a romantic dinner or doing some couple activities together? Getting a photo-shoot together to have those memories last forever, of course.
Burj Khalifa 124 & Lunch or Dinner at Rooftop, The Burj Club
Most people don’t like waking up at the crack of dawn. And for good reason. However, if waking up at the crack of dawn means that you will be met with the golden hues of the desert, the sprawling panorama of the views under you, the slight breeze on your faces and the freedom of being on being in a hot air balloon, then that’s definitely worth it. Get on this hot air balloon ride and experience the other side of Dubai by soaring freely on top of the desert.
Take a day trip to Hatta
The experience there starts right from the elevator. You’ll travel up one of the world’s fastest elevators, and then you’ll be right inside of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. The place boasts an unparalleled romantic atmosphere, with a 3-course lunch, a view that overlooks the Dubai Fountain and of course – the rooftop restaurant’s vibe.
By going on a trip to Hatta, you will be driving down the longest tunnel of Kalba, enjoy the magnificent sand dunes of Emirates, and learn about the country’s exciting past.A lot of couples are currently more interested in having adventures together rather than just a candlelit dinner. Luckily for you, if you’ve got an adventurous edge to you, you can go on a private full day trip to Hatta and Kalba. The trip will take you through the real Emirates – with its full heritage, its sand dunes, and its mountainous region.
You can tell from its name that this is a spot that couples prefer. Al Qudra is an oasis of serenity away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. There are plenty of couple activities that you can enjoy in the place – from having a ride around the lakes, to enjoy a nice picnic.
