The Samar Lounge in the Banyan Tree Al Wadi

Just over an hour's drive from Dubai, the sumptuous oasis of Banyan Tree Al Wadi awaits couples seeking a remote desert sanctuary. The resort's dedicated romance consultants specialize in amorous escapes, recommending activities such as a private dinner at Safran Tower in the heart of rolling sand dunes or a camel excursion just for two. Winding through the Al Wadi Nature Reserve, safaris offer sightings of oryx and gazelles, while spa treatments include indulgences such as decadent Egyptian milk baths. Among the Bedouin-style villas, the breathtaking Al Khaimah Tented Pool Suites boast designer sun beds and private swimming pools nestled in the sand. Couples can savor Arabic culinary specialties at Al Waha restaurant, and then gaze up at the stars — or into one another's eyes — over cocktails at the dreamy rooftop Moon Bar.
