Romantic Desert Escape
But don’t just stay inside your hotel–or even within Dubai’s city limits. For a luxurious desert escape, try our Platinum Desert Safari.
Begin your excursion to your Royal Desert Retreat inside brand new, luxurious Range Rovers. From there, you can explore the nearby wildlife reserves, hoping to catch a glimpse of the rare Arabian oryx (or the lovable sand fox).
Watch the sunset over the desert hills with sunset canapes (consisting of offerings like white truffle infused custard and tea smoked lamb) and observe an exclusive falconry demonstration. Afterwards, take shelter alongside a desert oasis, far from any trace of civilization. Here, you can ride camels, smoke shisha, and watch the private belly dance performance.
For dinner, enjoy a 6-course gourmet feast atop an antique Arabic wooden door in your serene royal getaway. Relax in the comfort of silk carpets, fluffy cushions, and your own private Majlis.
Alternatively, you can opt for a more rustic, authentic adventure with our Heritage Desert Safari. Ride in museum quality 1950’s Land Rovers to a recreated Bedouin tent (as the nomads lived so many years ago). Experience spectacular falconry demonstrations, ride camels through the desert, and feast on local delicacies. If you want, you can even partake of the overnight safari. Here, you can watch cultural performances, smoke shisha, and enjoy a 4-course meal. Then, spend the night in your rustic, secluded escape, a Bedouin tent under the stars.
In the morning, you’ll wake up early and be driven to your hot-air balloon ride. Prepping for sunrise, you’ll watch as the crews fill these giant balloons with great bursts of fire. Then, step aboard and leave the desert dunes to float gracefully through the air. Alongside your partner, watch as the sun rises across the desert sands, golden rays of light peeking out tentatively from a pink, lightening sky.
To make it all the more special, watch as a trained falcon flies around the balloon in beautiful orbit (the only place in the world you can see this).
Dubai is not simply an economic powerhouse; it’s also a city steeped in culture and custom, a land where past, present, and cutting-edge future collide in a whirling kaleidoscope. Steeped in history, luxury, and the promise of bright tomorrows to come, there is no better place for a romantic getaway than Dubai.
