Find a destination to fall in love within Abu Dhabi’s premier resort, perfect to spoil your loved one with staycations and a range of romantic dining options
The time of year has come once again for loved-up couples to out-do one another with their OTT and ultra-extravagant gestures, trips, and gifts (we are looking at you, guys!). If you’re not whisking your special someone away for an international trip, you can stay here and soak up all the incredible offers that the region has – and if you book something at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island you’ll feel as though you’re abroad anyway in a fabulous holiday destination. Abu Dhabi’s first eco-friendly resort is a superior location with an array of entertainment and dining options. The shores of Abu Dhabi are the perfect spot for love birds to dine, unwind, and be thoroughly pampered.
Edged with pristine white sandy beaches and glittering azure water, Jumeirah Saadiyat has beautiful accommodation to boot, and a host of dining options from day to night. Start with a casual yet elegant afternoon tea in their beautiful Majilis with cakes and savoury items served in their custom-made tiered jewelry box. Sip on a variety of tea and coffee as you enjoy sweets with your sweet, from 2-6pm on the 14th for only AED 338 per couple.
For more of a romantic feel you can take your other (or better) half to an uber romantic San Valentino dinner under the stars on The Boardwalk. Be soothed by the sounds of the ocean gently lapping the shore, while you dine on delicious Italian food and wine. The beautiful waterfront views are the perfect way to treat someone and say: “I love you,” in opulent serenity. There are glorious Italian dishes from Mare Mare created by the restaurant’s new Chef de Cuisine Gaetano Luciani. Expect deluxe dining including marinated octopus, scallops, and asparagus velouté, agnolotti pasta stuffed with beef, all expertly paired with fine wines or Italian bubbles. Book this offer for the 14th of February for AED 800 per couple, from 5-11pm.
There are also several private dining options prepared by their team of world class chefs, for ultimate luxury and intimacy. You’ll be served nothing but romance in one of their private cabanas, with a menu coming from regionally influenced TEAN. Anticipate a candlelit table for two with a menu of gourmet delicacies, as you catch the sunset over the island, and toast your loved one with a bottle of ice-cold bubbles. This is a less wallet-friendly offer at AED 4,999 per person, but well worth it if you want to spoil your someone special. Likewise, if you’re staycationing over the Valentine’s holiday you can have a private dinner arranged in the comfort of your room, for AED 850 per couple, and dine on a bespoke menu of chilled seafood, black Angus beef tenderloin with glazed baby vegetables, wild sea bass, degustation and dessert.
There’s even a truly stunning setting if you’re planning to use the 14th as an opportunity for a proposal – The Lounge is a rooftop bar with panoramic views across the resort and sea. There’s a special offer of food and premium beverages on at The Lounge from 7pm-midnight for only AED 999 per couple, with a set menu of modern and stylish food and complementary beverages. There’s also beautiful décor arrangements and the team will be on hand in this elegant venue to help you plan the perfect proposal.
