This is where isolation, solitude, rustic desert charms and the magic of shifting sand dunes come into play. All the rage in Abu Dhabi desert dining has been taken to a whole new level by luxury resorts.

A simple desert meal is now a classy affair with the meal attended to by a personal butler and maybe your very own mini-orchestra, serenading the love of your life.

This is not a farfetched desert story; simply check with the gourmet restaurants of high-end hotels and they will be more than happy to set up a dining by design experience for you.

The menu, of course, is the very best in Arab cuisine with the settings belonging to the charms of nature.🥂

An Emirati heritage on which Abu Dhabi was built, the pearl diving industry still survives. Although not as lucrative as in the past pearl diving is still practiced, mainly as a tourist lure.

Book a traditional dhow tour that will take you on an unforgettable pearl diving adventure. The tour is quite traditional including tea with dates, oyster shucking demonstrations and the expertise of a knowledgeable guide.

A picnic on the beach can be as glamorous as you make it. If you are willing to splurge there are luxury resorts that go all out and organize picnics on endless white sand beaches.

The venue is strewn with rose petals while the picnic basket will yield a gourmet meal designed to woo the heart of anyone. You could try a simpler option by packing a cozy snack for two and heading over to the corniche.

There too you can enjoy expansive views across the horizon and impress the love of your life with some Arab treats and desserts designed to melt hearts. 🌴🌅
