Travelling to Dubai

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, are you looking for romantic things to do in Dubai? Whether you are the romantic type or not, these activities are a great way for couples to bond and experience something new together. They say that experiences are better than any material gifts; unforgettable shared memories are the best type of love stories. Whether it’s to celebrate a special occasion like Valentine’s Day or just as a fun date during your holiday, these romantic adventures promise cherished memories in Dubai.

Dinner under the stars at a desert oasis

Get whisked out to the desert in a Range Rover to experience the most luxurious Desert Safari in Dubai. From the 6-course dinner to the private cabanas at a magical oasis, the Platinum Desert Safari is a 5-star experience of the desert. The adventure starts with a wildlife drive in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in luxury Range Rovers. During the drive, take in the stunning views of the Dubai desert and it’s animals like the Arabian oryx. Afterwards enjoy a spectacular sunset falcon show on plush leather sofas in the middle of a Royal desert retreat before mounting a camel for a quick ride to the desert oasis.

Arrive to a gently lit desert oasis surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees. The professional Chef prepares a 6-course meal with many dishes to choose from including seafood, meat and vegetarian options. The culinary journey is broken up with an amazing Flaming Sands of Arabia fire show, henna painting and shisha. This experience takes dining under the stars in the desert to a whole new level.

Romantic Hot Air Balloon flight during sunrise

It doesn’t get much more romantic than floating above the clouds during sunrise. The views of the Dubai desert from 4,000ft are truly breath-taking! Balloon Adventures Dubai is the only hot air balloon company that flies with falcons. This world-first phenomenon combines hot air ballooning and falconry in a truly unique manner. Every hot air balloon flight includes a falcon show from the sky; the falcons have been professionally trained to fly and swoop around the balloon baskets. In my opinion, there is no better way to experience falconry in Dubai and this experience allows you to tick a few things off your bucket list. Breakfast is served after the balloon flight in an authentic heritage camp in the desert. The best part is that you get to travel there in open-top vintage Land Rovers. The breakfast is an impressive buffet of eggs Benedict, eggs Shakshuka, salmon, caviar and other delights you wouldn’t expect to see served in the middle of the desert. This is the ultimate romantic adventure for those couples looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
