Lindsay Judge   |   12-09-2021

Meliã Desert Palm Dubai is one of the UAE’s greatest hidden gems and now it’s offering an exclusive romantic getaway package for guests.


Nestled away from the city, this home from home takes you on a Mediterranean journey that will make you feel as though you’ve just hopped on a plane – perfect for those who are still reluctant to travel.



This summer, the resort has been running a romantic getaway experience and there’s still time to explore and discover this unique offering.



Upon arrival you will instantly feel a million miles away, lush greenery, a relaxing atmosphere and a European mood make this one of our favourite destinations in the UAE. Make the most of your day by arriving early so you relax at the resort’s pool or have some downtime in the room. Be sure not to miss sunset as you’ll get to witness stunning views across Dubai’s skyline – a great picture-perfect moment!



The RARE Romantic Experience is designed for those who want to make the most of their alone time – whether it’s for new couples, mums and dads who have a night away from the kids, an anniversary or even to pop the question – the resort will be on hand to make your experience truly romantic.



After relaxing in your room for the afternoon head to the resort’s in-house dining destination RARE to discover a unique menu, specially designed to spark romance. After being welcomed with roses at your table, the three-course meal begins with a starter of Smoked Burrata with basil, roasted tomatoes and microgreens or Grilled Lobster with Spanish vinaigrette, soft garlic puree and roasted carrot mousseline. We recommend trying one of each and sharing as you won’t want to miss out on the flavours!


RARE Romance Table


For the main course choose from Grilled tenderloin with quinoa and truffle potato foam or Black Cod served with asparagus citric risotto and Sauce Vierge; all dishes are grilled to perfection on the restaurant’s oak-wood-fired grill, you can even watch your meal being cooked if you wish!

Then, if you still have space for dessert, choose from an indulgent Chocolate lava cake with sesame ice cream or Crème brûlée with fresh berries.

The meal can be paired with fine grape from RARE’s extensive cellar if you wish.

And if you have time, why not make the most of your stay by lounging by the pool for the day? We promise you won’t want to leave!
