Revealed: UAE's most romantic hotels
Hotels in the country scored between 91 and 98 for romance with guests, according to Wego.com and review platform TrustYou
With Valentine's Day around the corner, travel search site Wego.com and review platform TrustYou have collaborated to reveal which UAE hotels rated highest with guests for romance. The data found guests in the UAE associated five star luxury with romance. With star ratings from four to seven, top hotels in the country scored between 91 and 98 for romance with guests. With a 1,200m private beach, lush gardens and several swimming pools, The 5-star Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina ranked number one on the list. Factors like an adult-only swimming pool, swim-up bars and friendly staff make this 5-star Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa Dubai worthy of its number two rank. We wouldn’t have considered this to be in the top list as it’s located in business towers, but the 5-star Jumeirah hotel at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi has its share of romantic features, including views and high-end interiors. There’s no surprised here as the theme in Jumeirah Mina A’Salam revolves around romance. The 5 star Dubai hotel boasts romantic features such as private shores, flowing rivers and even fountains filled with rose petals. There’s something romantic about views, and the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai is all about them. Located in Jumeirah Beach, the 4 star hotel has an infinity pool, private beach cabanas and of course, sea views. Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel Dubai has an exotic Arabian and North African vibe. A 5 star hotel, it houses chilled-out dining venues and interiors boasting hanging lanterns and colourful window mosaics. Known as one of Dubai’s oldest 5 star hotels, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel remains as luxurious as ever. We’re talking bathtubs with views, vast beaches and a number of couple-oriented dining destinations. The 5-star Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai is cosy, quiet and relaxing. No wonder it’s in the top list of the most romantic hotels in the city. We like its private beach cabanas the most, located beside chilled lounge Bliss. Dubai’s 7-star hotel Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is ultra-luxurious, but its seclusion and location in the middle of the sea is what makes it ultra-romantic as well. We love the floor to ceiling windows across the building. If it’s not romantic to stay at a private luxury villa in the middle of the desert, we don’t know what is! The 5-star Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa in Dubai is a great romantic escape out of the city.
