For couples…

One&Only The Palm, Dubai

Lazing on a private beach, snoozing in a sun-drenched hammock, or relaxing beside a sparkling pool… It’s easy to forget that you’re actually just a short boat ride away from Dubai’s highlights when staying at One&Only The Palm. Perfect for romantic meals, Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno’s restaurant STAY offers authentic French cuisine by candlelight. Lastly, head to the One&Only Private Spa for a massage and feel all your stresses melt away.

For honeymoons…

One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

Honeymoons are all about relaxing and the Maldives – all white sand, clear water, warm sunshine and swaying palms – is perfect. Obviously, that’s enough of an incentive to stick around. But, honeymooners at One&Only Reethi Rah receive more special treats the longer they stay. So, you could have champagne on your first day, and a professional photoshoot on day six. Then, enjoy a private cocktail evening in your own cabana to celebrate day 12.
