Whether you want to make a grand gesture or keep things low key, there are plenty of ways to ramp up the romance at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort

The most romantic time of the year, Valentine’s Day (on 14 February) provides all the motivation you need to treat the object of your affection to something extra special. And if you’re in the mood to pull out all the stops, how does a sun-drenched holiday sound? Crafted by Anantara’s biggest softies, this vacation package will send you off on a storybook style adventure, starting with a two-night stay in a Pool Beach Villa, with 100 red roses delivered to your door and an evening onboard a private luxury yacht with a chef, sommelier and waiter on hand to serve you a five-course dinner of caviar, sushi and seafood paired with your favourite drink. Each morning you’ll wake up to a bubbly breakfast and, on the last day, you’ll be whisked away to the airport in a limo to hop on an Emirates flight headed to the Indian Ocean where you’ll spend a further two nights at Anantara Kihavah Maldives in a Beach Pool Villa soaking up the rays.


Unwind in a Pool Beach Villa


If you prefer to dial it down a little, foodies will find all they need to make the heart sing at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort’s restaurants – each of which is putting on a special spread. For those craving privacy, the best option is dining under the stars at a table on the beach overlooking Palm Jumeirah. The intimate Flavours of the Ocean by Dining by Design experience includes a five-course menu and is limited to just eight couples.

If Asian food floats your love boat head to Mekong, which will be transformed into a flower-filled venue complete with mood lighting. Or keep it casual at Bushman’s where you can tuck into a three-course outback inspired menu of authentic Australian fare on the outdoor billabong terrace.


Be pampered in the hammam

If you’re loved one deserves some expert pampering, Anantara Spa is offering couples’ journeys that invite you to unwind with a treatment by the sea, sit down to lunch at The Beach House and spend some quality time together thanks to the all-day pass to the resort’s sparkling pools and beach.
