Combine the relaxation of a beach honeymoon with the most luxurious hotels in the world and all that a modern city and a desert adventure offer for a perfect honeymoon in the UAE.

While many think of Abu Dhabi and Dubai as a stop to somewhere else, and as one of the biggest flight hubs in the world, they are that but can be a lot more! There is always a new hotel or hot restaurant opening with every possible cuisine and there is always something new and exciting to pack your honeymoon with memorable moments. Have dinner while watching the sunset go behind the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Go glamping in the desert or book a cabana at the world’s highest infinity pool. Dubai is filled with endlessly fun things to do.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is also a superb choice. Although it’s a bit more conservative than Dubai, it still has many luxury hotels, and shopping and dining opportunities. Relax on the beach at Saadiyat Island or Yas Island plus with plenty of theme parks, there is a lot of fun to be had in this Emirate.

Beyond these famous cities, lies the other emirates, such as Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah. Hike arid mountains, bash sand dunes in a jeep or take a Musandam Dibba cruise.


The best time to visit Dubai and the United Arab Emirates for a honeymoon is from September to May. During the high summer months of June to August where it can reach up to 40° C / 100° F.


Is the UAE good for a honeymoon? Yes, it’s perfect for lovers of luxury with plenty of culture and beach opportunities.

How long do you need for a honeymoon in the UAE? While many couples include the UAE for a 3-4 night stopover as part of a bigger honeymoon itinerary, we recommend at least 7 nights to explore the country.
