While it’s easy to choose the most obvious honeymoon spots, there are a few places that are chosen by the ones with a distinctive taste. Dubai is one destination that needs a special taste to be chosen. You have to love the luxury, the chivalry, the larger than life hospitality, and should be ready to fall in love with a new definition of romance; only then will you be able to have a love affair with Dubai for life.

There are many romantic places to visit in Dubai and some of them are actually too good to be true. Here’s an exclusive list of romantic places in Dubai to give your honeymoon the required amount of spice and sweetness to savor a lifetime.

Take a relaxing sea cruise together

The best way to enjoy quality time together and the experience the magic of the Arabian sea is to book a luxury cruise and sail for some special ‘we’ time. Enjoy the sea with your legs up while holding a glass of champagne. The entire experience can lift up your spirits and can kick start your adventure with the city of Dubai.

A romantic Dhow Cruise dinner in Dubai is the perfect way of admiring the city’s glittering skyline at night. Enjoy the special time together with a sumptuous array of international buffet dinner, drinks, dance, and entertainment. The two-hour cruise takes you through the beautiful Dubai creek and allows you to surrender yourself to the surreal experience of togetherness.

Spend a night camping in desert

Desert Safari

They say that no trip to Dubai is complete without experiencing the Dubai desert safari, but we say if you are a honeymoon couple, just the safari experience isn’t enough. Enjoy the serenity of the desert and spend a romantic night under the blanket of the starlit sky. You can book the overnight desert camp with Rayna tours and enjoy barbecue dinner and various entertainment activities in the Bedouin-style desert camp along with an overnight dream come true experience.

Hot air balloon rides with champagne

Take your soulmate out for an adventure morning ride on a hot air balloon. And while she is smitten with the tranquility of the surroundings up in the sky, surprise her with the breakfast and champagne, in the clouds, literally. We promise this breakfast would be an experience she’ll remember forever.

Skydive together over Palm Islands

If adventure is what you both crave for, there can be no better alternative to seeing the Dubai skyline than trying the skydiving adventure over the Palm islands. Don’t worry if you are not a certified diver, all you need here is your guts, the rest can be handled by the world renowned dive instructors.

Dine at the Pierchic, in the middle of the ocean

Dubai has some of the world’s best dine- in places you can ever imagine. From the top tower of the Burj Khalifa to the world’s most luxurious dinner at the Burj Al Arab, there’s no end to romantic dining. However, Pierchic maintains its legacy of being one of the most romantic places to eat in Dubai with a view of the ocean on all its sides. Offering a chance to eat at the stilts of the open water, the beautiful wooden interior of the restaurant and the exceptionally great menu makes it a must visit the place during your honeymoon. Don’t forget to book your table in advance to avoid last minute disappointments.

Go shopping together at the world’s biggest malls

When in Dubai, enjoyment can never be complete without shopping. Now take your soulmate in arms and go shopping at the world’s biggest, most luxurious and unbelievable shopping malls. Whether it is the Dubai Mall, the Mall of Emirates or the Ibn Battuta mall, be rest assured of being spoilt for choice. While the Dubai Mall offers you over 1200 shops and 120 restaurants, the Mall of Emirates offers you Ski Dubai- the world’s first ever indoor ski park where you can play with real penguins and enjoy the best of snow in the desert city. No matter what you choose for as your excursion, the malls of Dubai will certainly leave you wanting for more.

Enjoy a swim together at the picturesque Jumeirah Beach

There’s nothing more soothing than relaxing at the beach. The serene sound of the calm ocean waves and the majestic backdrop of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, the Jumeirah beach can be your ticket to a comforting day out, devoid of the hustle- bustle of the city. The entire stretch is full of great eateries, shopping outlets and a lot more to spend the better part of the day enjoying when you are not splashing water in the sea together.

You have to be in adoration with the vibrancy of Dubai to fall in love with its beat and wonders. The entire emirate is a world in itself and can be a dream come true place for the honeymooners. You have to visit Dubai to experience its charm and magnetism that brings millions of tourists to the city every year for different reasons. Some come here for shopping, some for a family retreat, some for adventure trails and some for the honeymoon. The reasons may vary but the charisma of Dubai is still the biggest pull for travelers from all parts of the globe.

    Camping in the desert sounds amazing – as long as it doesn’t get too cold?

      I wouldn’t be able to sleep much at night in the desert if it gets cold, but it does sound like a fun activity to do.

    All of these look sooooo exciting and like they would be the sweetest vacay with someone you love. I think out of all of them, the Dhow Cruise looks the BEST. OMG it looks like you could just stay there forever. Now I need to go to Dubai. Wait, I need to find a husband to go with me first. Let me get on that 😛

      Dubai is such a wonderful place to visit with so many things to see. I can’t wait to go at the end of October and ride a camel through the desert.

    I’ve never thought of Dubai as a honeymoon destination but looking at your post, it makes sense. It looks like an awesome destination for romance, luxury as well as adventure. Beautiful photos!

      It’s probably not your typical destination spot. Most couples probably prefer going to a beach location. In Dubai you get to enjoy not only the beach, but all the other things that are worth seeing.

    Skydive is always one of my most top option to do while traveling in Dubai especially with my hubby. Eric and I were in Dubai in December 2018. All the things that you shared are phenomenal. Loved it and bookmarked your blog for further reading.
