With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we are sure you are leaving no stone unturned to make your love feel special. However, if you are planning to propose to her, this list of the most romantic places in Dubai is sure to make your day memorable. From a luxurious dinner at the Burj Khalifa to a simple proposal under a moon-lit sky at the Al Qudra lake, there’s something for everyone!
Say It In The Sky
Take your love to a whole new level with a hot air balloon proposal. Pop the question mid-air as you float in a customized balloon decked with flower bouquets, red carpet, roses, and a live acoustic violinist. How romantic is that! Most of the hot air balloon rides are scheduled in the mornings. So get set for a fairy tale proposal against a spectacular sunrise. Winters are considered ideal for ballooning as they offer crystal clear views of desert dunes, sunrise, mountains on the southeast and the skyline of Dubai on the northwest side.
Don’t forget to carry your wallet, a hat, sunglasses, water bottle, a pair of binoculars and a camera. Make sure you are dressed in comfortable clothing. Carry a jacket as it will be windy up there. That said, don’t end up layering yourself as you will also have to walk a bit once you land.

2. Say It Like A Star
If you want your beloved to feel extra special and if have a hefty bank balance, Dubai is rife with some of the best star venues that will make your big day more memorable.
From the secluded Bab Al Shams resort to the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort By Anantara and the Le Royal Meridien in Abu Dhabi, Dubai has a long list of star venues that will just be apt for you to get down on your knees. Do it at around sunset for the most impactful view!
3. Say It On A Helipad
Sounds cliche? Maybe, but what better than telling everyone that you got engaged in Burj Al Arab, a 7-star restaurant. And it’s even better if you can do it all on the helipad.
Talk about proposing celeb-style!
4. Say It In A Yacht
Hire a yacht and get sailing with your lady love for a sunset proposal. You can also get a musician on board to play your beloved’s favorite song. Once you’re ready to pop the question, stop the yacht in front of the Burj Al Arab and get on your knees.
Trust us, she is going to have happy tears. Follow this by a sumptuous dinner and you can be sure you’ve won the love of your life.
5. Say It On Top Of The World’s Tallest Tower
Talking about romantic places in Dubai, how could this one skip our list! Propose to your lady at the top of the world’s tallest tower – The Burj Khalifa. You could also enjoy a romantic dinner at At.mosphere, (the highest restaurant in the world), with the fountain dancing away in the background.
The dinner is sure to come with a hefty price tag, but the experience will be priceless.
6. Say It Under A Moon-Lit Sky
If simplicity is your style, pack a picnic and head to the Al Qudra lake. Pitch a tent, have a barbecue dinner with the company of stars and propose to her under a moon-lit sky.
Simple, elegant and romantic- this one is for those who love some personal space away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
