    Indulge in Dubai

    Jane's verdict:

    ‘Over the top’ might be a phrase used to describe Dubai. If you’re looking for a glitzy honeymoon with top cuisine, shopping and nightlife plus plenty of sunshine despite being on the cusp of short-haul, this is the place to come. Combine city pampering in Dubai or Abu Dhabi with a magical spell in the Maldives or Seychelles for a class double act.

    Tropical Sky says

    Dubai offers a huge range of hotels, to say nothing of the vast and glittering shopping centres, entertainment centres and water parks. It can be bewildering to find the right choice for your honeymoon.

    • Direct flights
    • Handpicked hotels
    • Twin-centre options

    There’s Abu Dhabi too, rapidly emerging as a honeymoon hotspot with its luxurious beachfront hotels.

    Our expert team can help you find the perfect choice for your honeymoon – here are some of our top picks.

    For five-star-plus pampering, The One&Only Royal Mirage Arabian Court is more intimate than many of Dubai’s hotels and it’s simply stunning.

    The JA Palm Tree Court offers all-inclusive prices with five-star standards. The beachfront location is exceptional and there’s a free shuttle bus service to the malls and other attractions. There’s even a nine-hole golf course on site.

    Sofitel The Palm is a contemporary hotel bang in the heart of Dubai’s marina – the sleek decor and the sexy spa make this one of our favourites.

    The luxurious Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is located on The Palm itself. We especially love the private cinema, the spa and the vast oceanfront infinity pool.

    The lesser known resort of Fujairah, backed by the Hajar Mountains, is the perfect choice if you want the luxury of Dubai but more of a natural environment. We recommend the all-inclusive Iberotel Miramar Al Aqah Fujairah.

    Also located away from the hubbub is the gorgeous Fairmont Ajman, set in a peaceful location 30 minutes from Dubai.

    For a luxurious honeymoon with a difference, combine Dubai and the Maldives or Dubai and the Seychelles.

    Alternatively, head to Abu Dhabi before the crowds cotton on! We highly recommend the spectacular Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi – set on a private beach, it boasts Abu Dhabi’s biggest swimming pool as well as stunning rooms and so much more.
