Dubai is the perfect honeymoon destination for couples who love fast-paced cosmopolitan cities with oodles of glitz, glamour and excitement around every corner. Seeming to effortlessly fuse its native Arabian traditions with all of the luxurious accoutrements of the West, Dubai is also a cultural melting pot where you can rub shoulders with people from all over the globe, not to mention enjoy a diverse medley of cuisines. Then, of course, there is the barren beauty of the desert and the many unforgettable adventures you can experience during your time in the city, whether you are enjoying a day at the races, going on a desert safari or watching the exotic shimmies of a belly-dancer.
Honeymooners planning to stay in this dynamic city will have a number of luxury hotels and resorts to choose from, including the iconic Burj Al Arab which boasts not just 5 but 7 stars and is steeped in opulence and glamour. However if your budget won’t quite stretch to the Burj there are many other excellent hotels in the city, ranging from relatively cheap-and-cheerful to 5 stars, each one guaranteed to ensure you have a comfortable Arabian sojourn.
During your romantic Dubai honeymoon there are plenty of fun-filled activities to squeeze in to your itinerary, ranging from shopping at the record-breaking Dubai Mall to sailing along the Creek, soaring up to the observation deck at the Burj Khalifa or exploring the air-conditioned souk at the Madinat Jumeirah. Dune-bashing and hot air balloon flights add a healthy dose of adventure to your experience.
After sunset head to one of the city’s outstanding gourmet restaurants for a romantic dinner, then prepare to dance the night away at a sizzling Dubai club such as the Sky View Bar at the Burj Al Arab or 360° at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel Complex.
