From the best views, most romantic restaurants, and the most secluded private hideaways in and around Dubai, we’ve got you covered on the ultimate master list of the best romantic getaways for that extra-special someone.
At the One&Only you’ll feel like you’re the only two in the world. This incredible hidden gem gives you the most romantic sunset views at 101 Dining Lounge & Bar. We also recommend you check out their 3-star Michelin Chef, Yannick Alleno, and experience STAY’s candlelit Parisian romance in the heart of The Palm Jumeirah. It couldn’t get any more romantic than this.
Anantara will give you exquisite luxury accommodations you deserve along with a relaxed beachy vibe. Perfect for the most romantic honeymoon of a lifetime, Anantara gives you the best of on-site resort activities like peaceful sunset paddleboarding or a sweet couples massage. We especially loved the Japanese architectural inspiration in the resort buildings, giving your Arabian palace the added Asian fusion. Make sure to take advantage of the infinity pool and jacuzzi at this romantic hideaway.
This incredible retreat is one of the many Sofitel Hotels available in Dubai. Their Palm Luxury Apartments are located right next to the Resort & Spa. You’ll find yourself with access to all the benefits that Sofitel’s Resort & Spa can offer with a little added seclusion from the buzz of resort life. This is a great choice for a romantic hideaway right near the forefront of the infamous Palm Jumeirah’s crescent. We suggest checking out any of the dim candlelit dinners for that added romantic touch.
This exclusive hotel getaway is exactly what its name suggests — the absolute royal hideaway! Take your girl on the romance retreat of a lifetime at Dukes The Palm, where the city skyline looks so vibrant you could almost touch it. Chill out in the infinity pool, or cozy up to that someone special for a romantic dinner for two. Dukes Royal Hideaway Hotel at The Palm has all the opulence and romance you could need all in one convenient location.
Set amongst the tranquil gardens, waterways, and private pools of Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian vibes at Dar Al Masyaf will keep the romance alive. Situated comfortably between The Palm Jumeirah and Dubai city centre, you’ll have access to your own private beach with room to travel, relax, and bask in the romantic views.
This place is great if you want to find a romantic getaway in the heart of the bustling city of Dubai. Its unique Arabian architecture and truly grand palace building makes you feel like you could rule the kingdom. This place is the perfect venue for a romantic vacation, and maybe even the spot to pop that long-awaited question.
The FIVE Palm rests right at the entrance to the exclusive Palm Jumeirah and goes above and beyond with intricate and interesting architecture. It even has a portion of its exterior wrapped above one of its pools. If you’re looking for romance and fun all in one place, then FIVE has the best selection of restaurants and activities for young, vibrant, and in-love couples.
This bright vibrant retreat is just north of Dubai city so that you feel like you’re truly hidden away from it all. Right next to Dubai Creek, Al Bandar Rotana offers stunning views from the swimming pool and fine dining for two. Their pool lounge will keep you refreshed and hydrated while you soak up the sun.
Nikki Beach Resort & Spa is truly romantic with beautiful views and amazing brunch parties. If you’re too young to be hitting up the hotels that lay around all day, then check out Nikki Beach for a high-end mixture of romance, relaxation, fashion, and entertainment. There’s no better way to keep that spark alive.
Perched on top of the Dubai Creek Yacht and Golf Club, Park Hyatt Dubai is a common wedding destination. Relax in the Amara Spa, or lounge around the pool with the girl who deserves it all. With seaplane tours right next door, you’ll want to take the lifelong Mrs. on the ride of a lifetime. Rooms come with beautiful and romantic balconies for quiet breakfasts that overlook the marina and creek waters.
