Happy Valentine’s Week everybody! With V-Day around the corner, all the couples are busy planning their romantic getaways and that is why I decided to collaborate with Komal (from www.sayitwithaselfiedubai.com) to give you ideas on how to enjoy this week of LOVE regardless of whether you are single or not!
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 it 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.
If you are in the mood for a more fun-filled family beach day, we suggest you head to JBR that has the amazing WIBIT inflatable water-park in the sea!
A Night To RememberNot 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 and night brunches to karaoke/beach parties and ladies nights, I have compiled the best deals around town for you all to take advantage of this whole week starting tonight!
Relive Your ChildhoodIf you are a child at heart, then head to Global Village or IMG Worlds of Adventure 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 Valentine’s.
For those who prefer something indoors, 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!
If these places don’t appeal to you, simply spend Valentine’s Day indoors by calling your friends in for a Game Night. 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.
Are you bored of the same old Valentine’s date? Are you looking for a new way to impress your significant other with a more adrenaline filled alternative to dinner and a movie?
If yes, then Aventura Parks the ideal date for you. Aventura Parks has a Valentine’s Day offer that will give you and y our loved one a day full of rope climbing, tree-surfing and more for only AED 225 per person!
Two more places where you can try out Zip Lining is Marina Mall which can be followed by a Valentine’s shopping spree with your friends or road trip it with your significant other to the world’s longest Zipline in Ras Al Khaimah, the Jebel Jais Flight!
For those of you who are afraid of heights and like to solve puzzles, you can try out Escape Reality and Jumble. These are two unconventional and completely quirky gaming experiences where you can 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!).
1. 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 Dhs130 per person, this has to be our top recommendation!
2. Urban Outdoor Cinema at 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.
3. 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!
4. West 14th Steakhouse at Palm Jumeirah – This has to be my favorite! With views of the Marina, yummy snacks and FREE ENTRY, this family-friendly Thursday movie night is the most stunning place to be at.
Relax & RejuvenateIf 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!
