The honeymoon suites:
As one of the world’s most exhilarating, luxurious and remarkable destinations, Dubai has many memorable options for honeymooners looking to unwind, indulge, and enjoy newly-wedded bliss. From palatial spa suites to high-end desert safaris, these resorts and activities are prime for an unforgettable honeymoon in Dubai.
Grand Imperial Suite at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
Spread over 310 square metres, the suite at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray feels palatial in every sense – from the spectacular marble spa bathroom to the regally-styled master bedroom. A walk-in closet, private sauna, amenities by Asprey London and private butler service add to the experience. Incredible sea views can be enjoyed from the grand terrace, which spans the entire length of the suite.
Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa
The Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa’s Bedouin-themed suites meld seamlessly into the Arabian desert without compromising the luxury quotient. Each room comes with handcrafted furnishings, its own private dining deck and pool for some relaxed desert-gazing. The on-site gourmet restaurant and spa are ready and waiting, adding some extra indulgence to your stay.
Presidential Duplex Suite at The Meydan Hotel
To stay at The Meydan’s Presidential Suite is to stay in style. Stretched across two floors and with floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area, the suite has direct views over Meydan Racecourse – the venue for the world’s richest horse race, the Dubai World Cup. Complimentary limousine transfers and a private butler are all part of the package.
Royal Suite at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach
The Royal Suite at the Four Seasons commands immediate attention with its vast, intricately embellished double doors that set the luxurious scene from the outset. Inside, the suite spans 600 square metres, including a marble lobby. There’s also a live-station kitchen, private spa, media centre, multiple walk-in closets and a total of four bathrooms.
Imperial Suite at The Palace Downtown Dubai
It’s as if you’ve got the royal box at the best theatre in town when you stand on the private terrace and watch the spectacular Dubai Fountain show and the unique vision of the Burj Khalifa. This double-storey suite at The Palace Downtown Dubai will transport you to the pages of 1001 Arabian Nights with its rich colours and regional textures. Complete with a Jacuzzi and not one, but two terraces – you’ll never want to leave.
Top Experiences For Two
A private yacht charter
Whisk your loved one away on board a luxury yacht and enjoy the spellbinding views of Dubai’s skyline from the waters of the warm Arabian Gulf. Xclusive Yachts offers anything from a 48-foot yacht complete with two crew members to an 86-foot yacht with inbuilt barbecue and surround-sound music system. The latter holds 40 people – so there’s more than enough room for just the two of you – or invite selected guests aboard, too.
The couple’s spa experience
Milk and honey baths, roses, candles, soft music and ambient lighting – there’s nothing more romantic than a honeymoon spa experience. The Romance 1001 Roses package at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray’s Talise Ottoman Spa promises true bliss for couples as they step into a private treatment room complete with Jacuzzi and sauna facilities.
Taking to the skies
Of course, there are those couples who prefer activities that are a little more thrill-seeking – and even gravity-defying. Hurl yourselves from a plane soaring at 13,000 feet above the Palm Jumeirah with Skydive Dubai taking in the incredible views over the coastline as you come back down to earth. Prefer staying airborne? Then take in a bird’s-eye view of Dubai from a luxury seaplane. From the moment you step on board Seawings’ air-conditioned, nine-passenger Cessna 208 Caravan Seaplane you’ll feel like a VIP.
Restaurants For Date Night
Cross the pier at Al Qasr to walk into a postcard-like setting where delights come in quick succession. Uninterrupted views of the Burj Al Arab and the Arabian Sea, stunning Arabian-inspired decor and soulful music – there’s a reason this restaurant makes it to every bucket list. When it comes to the food, dishes such as Scottish salmon, Atlantic halibut and Kristal caviar add to the complete dining experience.
Walk through golden archways for an underwater-like dining experience that will stimulate more than just your taste buds. Al Mahara in Burj Al Arab, with its floor-to-ceiling aquarium, sets the stage for an enchanting evening in the company of groupers, stingrays and sharks. The menu includes the freshest catch, from refreshing lobster consommé to delicate Tsarskaya oysters. It’s more than everything you need in a celebration for two.
