Of the many packages on offer we particularly love the Arabian Romance at Amwaj package allowing couples to embark on a rich culinary journey at Amwaj with authentic Arabian flavors. They can delight in the hotel’s three-course set menu including a glass bubbly on arrival and a red rose to set the mood for romance.          

Make sure you also try the Al Yamm Villa Resort with a 160-minute couples retreat for two per stay, at the Anantara Spa. Relax into holistic body bliss with daily breakfast, return boat transfers and head to toe pampering. Start with an energy boosting Arabian Massage to stimulate pressure points and release muscle tension. Next, experience a sense of renewal with a cleansing Elemis Visible Brilliance Facial, with its transformative anti-ageing properties; creating smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. You can also relax deeply with an Oriental Foot Reviver, as reflex point techniques revitalize and inspire a sense of wellbeing. A 20 percent discount on all additional treatments invites guests to enjoy more spa journeys and discover your individual wellness needs. With boat transfers to Sir Bani Yas Island and sparkling wine or date juice and chocolates when you arrive, an indulgently relaxing stay is promised.
