Neha Singh has been kind enough to provide this information via this guest post. Even you’re not getting married, by the end of this post you’ll want to head to Dubai for a romantic getaway.
Honeymoon is a time for intimacy, tenderness and love. If you are looking for an exotic place to spend your honeymoon, Dubai is the perfect destination for you. Located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is an iconic city that flaunts perfect winter conditions, serene beaches, world-class accommodations, gigantic shopping malls and much more. The list doesn’t end here; there are many “couple” activities which can be enjoyed in Dubai. Here is a list of places to visit in Dubai for honeymoon.
1. An evening at Burj Khalifa
The 2,722 feet high Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure of Dubai. It has 163 floors in total. This stupendous skyscraper has two observational decks, one on 124th floor and another on 148th floor. There is nothing more romantic than the mesmerizing view of sparkling Dubai and its unmatched beauty from these decks at night. But there is more! Back on ground, Burj Khalifa draws attention with the Dubai Fountain, which is also the tallest fountain in the world. This wonderful fountain is surrounded by beautifully embellished gardens.
No doubt, Burj Khalifa offers a perfect romantic evening.
2. Spend a day on the Palm Islands
At the coast of Dubai, are the islands Palm Jumeirah and Palm Jebel Ali. These islands are called Palm Islands because they are shaped in the form of palm trees. Though only Palm Jumeirah is allowed for public access, this man-made island has tourist attractions galore reserved for you. These attractions include Aquaventure Dubai, Atlantis Hotel, The Lost Chambers Aquarium and Dolphins Bay.
Surprise your partner at these islands or simply take a stroll on the sun kissed sand and turquoise sea water to enjoy your beach time.
3. Skiing at Ski Dubai
The largest snow park is nowhere else but in tropical Dubai. Lying on 3000 square meters of snow, Ski Dubai will definitely blow your mind. What’s more? Here’s a list of amazing things it has in store for you:
1. 85 meter high indoor mountain with 5 slopes of varying steepness and difficulty
2. 400 meter long run, the world’s first indoor black diamond run
3. A quad lift and a tow lift carrying skiers and snowboarders up the mountain
4. Various other features (boxes, rails, kickers) which are changed on a regular basis
Adjoining the slopes is a 3,000 square meter Snow Park play area comprising sled and toboggan runs, an icy body slide, climbing towers, giant snowballs and an ice cave. Ski Dubai also has a number of cute little penguins who are let out of their enclosures several times a day for public interaction. The experience is incomplete without snowfall and so, there is regular snowfall at Ski Dubai.
Truly, this enthralling snowy experience with your partner is a must.
4. Talise Ottoman Spa for couples
Yes, a romantic couples spa is available in Dubai. The Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel houses its multiple award winning Talise Ottoman Spa. The Romance 1001 Roses package is a dream come true for any couple.
