- Book the ideal desert safari package
Throw an unconventional date in Dubai desert safari. This is a well-constructed package that is meant for travelers who love adventure and entertainment at the same time. There are several kinds of camps, from private to group as per your interest.

Alternatively, couples can book the desert resort which has private pools, suites, and luxurious facilities without compromising on the thrill of the desert.
- Fly in love on the dramatic hot air balloon
While the overnight desert safari is to appreciate the starry night, there are couples who are fond of the magnificent sunrises. Well, if you are on the latter side and desire to see one of the most ecstatic sunrises, hop on the hot air balloon. It is one of the most romantic things to do in Dubai. A desert is perfect for golden hours — the balloon rises and you will see the sunrise from a bird-eye view as you clutch the hands of your spouse out of the excitement. With good research, you can get an operator that serves you breakfast.
- Embark on a romantic adventure in a Helicopter ride
Amp up your romantic life by taking it heights above — literally! Soar above the tall and opulent buildings of Dubai in the elegant and electrifying helicopter ride. You will be watching the iconic landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, and other celebratory buildings. It is an unforgettable experience with your bae, worth to be jotted down in your lifetime’s diary.

The rose-hued Atlantis The Palm has ShuiQi Spa, which offers a full-body couple massage with two-course lunch by the pool. Other spa junctions that provide sophisticated and natural spa treatments are Raffles Spa and Club Olympus Spa.
- Stroll by the beachside
The coastline of Dubai is ravishing. Some of them are private and owned by hotels which are opened only for the guests, while others are free to the public. At any of the beaches in Dubai, you are sure to have a splendid time, walking side-by-side with your partner. Pack a picnic for yourselves with light snacks and you and your partner are certain to make a romantic bond.
- Sail through the gorgeous Marina
And if nothing works, a good romantic dinner on a boat always saves the day. Sail, dine, sightsee, dance, and revel in the most amazing dhow cruise. This is a two-floored cruise made out of the traditional dhow, that has a glass-windowed restaurant on the lower deck and open-air upper deck. Feel free to choose either of them and witness the grandeur of Marina for a couple of hours. A decent meal, unlimited beverages, and on-board entertainment will live up to your expectations. Consult the team and you can customize a few of the things.
The only tip you need for Dubai is to avoid PDA. It is a part of a conservative country where strict rules are followed. So, just abide by the rules and take ease in its luxury, you are sure to have a magical time or honeymoon.
