Are you thinking of finally popping the question this year? If you're ready to make a commitment to the special person in your life, then why not do it in complete and luxury style on your holiday in Dubai?
You’ve heard of people getting engaged at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, at the Trevi Fountain in Rome and at the Empire State building in New York, so why not break the trend?
Be unique, stand out from the crowd and whisk the love of your life off to sunny Dubai for the biggest moment of your life.
At My Dubai Stay, we know how important it is to get this moment absolutely perfect. That's why we've taken time to create this complete guide so that you don't mess it up!
Here is our pick of the best romantic places to propose in Dubai...
A Proposal at the Burj Khalifa
Dubai is a world record breaking city, but it can be extra special to you and your partner if you pop the question among the clouds at the top of the world’s tallest building – the Burj Khalifa.
The observation deck on the 124th floor is the perfect spot, with floor to ceiling glass and panoramic views out across the city.
Take a look at the reception this cute couple got when they got engaged at the world's tallest building:
As you can see, it can get quite busy, but as this takes up the entire floor you’re sure to find a quiet spot where you can confess your love.
Either way, you’re bound to get some applause when she says does say “yes”...we hope :)

A Luxury Lovers Guide to Dubai
Is Dubai Safe for Unmarried Couples?
If you’re looking for something a little less public, why not book a private table at the At.mosphere restaurant, the highest restaurant in the world, located on the 122nd floor. Surprise them over highest afternoon tea - the highest in the world!
It’s a little pricey, but the view and food make up for it; it’s a special occasion after all, so you can afford to spoil her!
A Proposal at the Magical Dubai Fountains
The Dubai Fountains offer a mesmerising water and light show, making a perfect backdrop for the dream proposal.
Located at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa, they are the largest dancing fountains in the world. Shows run every half an hour between 6pm and 11pm every evening, so you have plenty of chances to get a great spot.
There are plenty of restaurants that overlook the show though if you want to get a little more comfortable.
We’d recommend proposing as Andrea Bocelli plays out – what could be more perfect?
A Proposal on the Water
The Dubai Creek flows effortlessly through the city centre and you could ask the love of your life to marry you while floating along its surface on a traditional abra sailing boat. Let’s just hope she has sea legs!
You’ll pass through ‘old’ Dubai and experience the authentic charm of the ‘real’ Dubai. And if you push the boat out as they say and charter a private abra you can have a personal trip without any interruptions.
Propose at sunset while the sun glistens on the water, or make a pit stop at a gold souk.
You could pull out the ring near a stall and say “how about this one instead?” She certainly won’t expect that!
A Proposal in a Desert Paradise
The majority of land in the United Arab Emirates is engulfed by desert, so naturally this would make a great location for escaping the hustle and bustle for some quiet time.
There are many desert safari companies who will take you out to the desert for camel rides, henna tattoos or a belly dancing display.
Book a romantic dinner for two with one of these companies and they will set up a candle lit dinner amongst the dunes for you. There is nothing quite like it.
See, we said Dubai could be romantic!
