Wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine’s Month/Week/Day.
With Valentines Day just around the corner, everyone everywhere is possibly working themselves up in deciding on where and how to spend the V-Day/Week with their better halves. While many may view planning for the big day of romance as a stressful prospect, there is no need to worry.
Now Valentine’s Day isn’t something you necessarily need to plan far in advance. In fact, there are loads of last-minute date ideas that you could try that will ensure that you enjoy yourselves completely. I collaborated with Aanchal from (https://aanchalbhojwani.com/) to give you some great ideas on how you can make the most out of this month of LOVE.
A Day at The Beach
The easiest way to spend Valentine’s in our books is to grab a few burgers and head down to the beach or park with your partner, family or a group of friends. The best part about this plan is that you don’t even need to plan it in advance and can be the ideal surprise date for your better half. One of the best destinations for a relaxing day by the beach would be the newly opened La Mer with an array of restaurants to choose from for your last minute picnic food.
From Zipping around Palm Jumeirah in a speedboat, jet ski through Dubai Marina, or snorkel into the colourful underwater world of the Arabian Gulf. If you are in for a fun filled beach day then one of our top recommendations is WIBIT, the new inflatables at JBR. With two giant trampolines, two giant climbing walls, several slides, a running wall, a rope swing and other countless obstacles it has to be best option.
A Night To Remember
Not only does Dubai have amazing deals for couples on Valentine’s Day, but there are some insane offers if you would like to have a fun night with your friends!
From romantic dinners to karaoke/beach parties to ladies nights, I have compiled the best deals around town for all of you to take advantage of this whole week starting tonight!
Relive Your Childhood
If you are a child at heart, then head to Global Village and have an enjoyable day with your friends or partner! Global Village is a beautifully made set-up where you have foods from all around the world to the best rides as well fair games where you can win cute prizes! I do not think there is anything better than spending the day here on V-Day.
If you are someone who finds the Dubai weather slightly chilly, then IMG Worlds is the place for you. Whether you enter the haunted house or ride the crazy Velociraptor Roller-Coaster, I can assure you that you will have a blast at this theme park!
And don’t forget to treat yourself to some cotton candy or buy your favorite stuff toy, so that you always remember this day as one filled with LOVE and laughter!
For people who would rather stay in than wine and dine on Valentine’s Day, With games like Taboo and Charades, some music and pizza, you’d be surprised how fun and wild playing old-fashioned games with your friends can get.
If you are the fun and adventure types then you are surely in for a treat. Surprise your loved ones this valentines by taking them to Adventura Park for a day filled with zip lining, Rope climbing and Tree surfuring followed by a romantic dinner under the stars. Adventura Parks has a special offer of AED 225/Person just for Valentines Day.
Two more places where you can try out Zip Lining is Marina Mall which can be followed by some shopping spree and second being the world’s longest Zipline in Ras Al Khaimah, the Jebel Jais Flight. Drive till RAK will give you some quiet and quality time with your partner as well.
If you like physical and mental challenges, love solving puzzles and want to race against time then we have something for you as well. Try out the escape rooms in Dubai. Escape Reality and Jumble are two unconventional and completely quirky gaming experiences where you work together with your team on a series of challenges and have only 60 mins to do so.
Movie Under The Stars
Fancy a night at the movies? For anyone who would rather lounge on bean bag under the stars than go out partying, there are a whole lot of options (and some of them are free entry!).
- VOX Cinemas at Galleria Mall – If you are looking for five-star service at a rooftop Cinema, this is where you need to go. For Dhs 130 per person, this has to be our top recommendation!
- Habtoor Grand – An outdoor cinema that shows a variety of family-friendly classic films 3 times a week on Saturday, Sunday and Monday with FREE ENTRY. With a pop-up bar serving popcorn and finger-food, this place is perfect for a couple or a family.
- The Backyard – With tickets priced at Dhs75 and food deals throughout the evening, this movie night on Tuesday could be the best way to start off V-Day!
- West 14th Steakhouse at Palm Jumeirah – This has to be my favorite! With views of the Marina and FREE ENTRY, this family-friendly Thursday movie night is the most stunning place to be at.
Relax & Rejuvenate
If you are in the mood to relax & unwind, then a Spa Day is all you need this Valentine’s Day. Take your boyfriend or your girlfriends and just treat yourself as lavishly as possible!
Hope this post gave you some ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
