For most of us, making the effort on Valentine’s Day means remembering to buy a card, going out for a nice meal and perhaps exchanging a present or two.
We bet you normally feel quite smug if you manage to do all that, but The St. Regis Abu Dhabi has come along and set the bar for Valentine’s romance ridiculously high.
Think you’ve treated your other half to the flashiest meal imaginable?
Well you haven’t seen what’s going on at this super luxurious hotel.
The romantic celebrations are the very definition of ‘extra’, and if you happen to have a spare Dhs3,500 between you, you and your loved one can go and experience it for yourselves on February 14.
In fact, if you’re craving time together as just the two of you, this could be just what you need.
The four-course dinner takes place inside your own intimate igloo on the private beach at Nation Riviera Beach Club. But don’t worry, you can still see through the walls and take in the views of the Gulf.
It’s almost like dining in a tent, except a million times fancier.
If you’re looking to spoil your better half and shamelessly show off how much you love them, it doesn’t really get any better than this.
Reservations are available from 7pm onwards, and the meal also comes with bubbly and grapes.
Or, if that sounds a bit tame, you can treat your better half to a Sunset Supper at an extremely casual 255 metres in the air (just make sure they’re very okay with heights first).
Held out on the helipad of the hotel, ten couples will be treated to a night of bubbly, canapés and live music from a saxophonist.
If you’re a couple who hates being ordinary, or even being safely on the crowd, this is definitely an experience you’ll never forget.
The 90-minute package costs Dhs2,000, and it all takes place over sunset.
We mean, if you’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day, then you may as well do it in the most Abu Dhabi way possible, right?
Dhs3,500 (igloo meal, per couple), Dhs2,000 (helipad supper, per couple). Thu Feb 14. The St. Regis Abu Dhabi, Nation Towers, West Corniche (02 694 4553).
