The 14th of February is just around the corner and maybe you are still not sure what to do for such a “lovely” day. If you are in Dubai, I have been doing some research of options that you might be interested in. These are the best plans for you and your Valentine in Dubai.
Valentines wanting to Dine …
If you are both foodies, then you could go out to dine in a special place. Being in Dubai there are so many restaurants that it could be daunting to try to choose. These are the ones I find very interesting.
Sheraton Dubai at Mall of the Emirates is offering a pop up restaurant- V by Chef Waleed al Sadik- with breathtaking views from the 24th floor. It offers 5 course menu and beverages for 445 Dhs. Note that the ladies will receive a special gift from Shine Spa. To book: +971 4377 2353
If you, like me, love mexican food, then an option can be Rosa Mexicano. They have a special menu for Saint Valentine with Sea Bass Tamales or Tablones ( yummy!). Also Maria Bonita and Tortuga have special menus for the 14th.
Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers has three restaurants offering customized dinner menus for this special day.If you feel like Japanese food, at Creekside you have 5 course menu and one bottle of sparkling for only 399 Dhs. If you are feeling for indian, then the Ashiana by Vineet is your option. The italian restaurant in the hotel is called Vivaldi and has the same package with lovely italian food. To book: +971 4 207 1717.
Yas Marina Circuit is putting together a package called “Love Birds Tour” where you can tour the Formula 1 circuit insides where normally only drivers and teams are allowed and after, have dinner in Cipriani (voucher of 350 Dhas as part of the package). The cost is 469Dhs. To Book you can call the toll free 800 YAS.
At the Mina A’Salam Hotel in Madinat Jumeirah you can rent a beach tent or a majlis for 4.500 Dhs. This super exclusive package includes a chauffeur picking you up from the hotel, a flower lapel for him and a flower corsage for you. You will have a butler serving you a welcome beverage before escorting you to the beach for your special dining. If you want to have an edible pic on top of a delicious cake of you and your partner, it is also included in the price.
If this is a bit too pricey, there is another option.. The Golden Abra, where you can eat onboard of one of the pretty abras in the Madinat Jumeirah, with bubbles, canapes, chocolate and flowers. The boats depart at 15.00 on the 14th and the trip takes more or less one and a half hour. The price of this one is 950 Dhs per couple.
Valentines wanting to relax…
Last year I enjoyed the 14th of February in an amazing way.. in a spa at the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites. It was great for both of us and I love the concept of sharing the tranquility and peace. I recommend this spa very much, it is called the Saray Spa.
The Sofitel in Downtown Dubai has also a package of 60 minute couples massage, a hydro bath after it with lavender infusion that will make you relax and let go of the daily tensions. The cost is 950 Dhs.
If you are thinking of going out of Dubai, there is a cute hotel in Jabal Akhdar in Oman, in the middle of the gorgeous Al Hajar mountains. There, there is a spa – Alila- where you can enjoy different types of massages ( Balinese, Swedish, therapeudic, etc). I would love to go there, but on that same 14th I have class of my Digital Marketing Certification, so.. no weekend escape this time!.
Actually I am not even sure what will we end up doing at all.. I have done my research as you can see, but after the class and the weeks work I have always been too tired… We were considering having another day as special but then, all our lives since we started dating have been very special. I guess it is the spanish way, we want to celebrate love, life and food and any excuse is good enough!

Lots of Luv,
