Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show loved ones how special they are.
This year, couples can have a little help from the pioneers of romance, Banyan Tree and their resorts in Ras Al Khaimah. Here, a series of romantic experiences to mark the occasion have been created. Whether indulging in spa treatments, stargazing amongst the sand dunes, or enjoying a romantic alfresco dinner, both resorts are the ultimate Valentine’s Day retreats.
Couples seeking a spa getaway to relax and rejuvenate can choose to stay in the newly launched Spa Sanctuary Tented Pool Villas at both Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach and Banyan Tree Al Wadi. With an array of unlimited treatments in the privacy of their Bedouin-style villa as well as unparalleled luxury and seclusion, star-crossed lovers can celebrate a Valentine’s Day to remember. Throughout their stay, an expertly trained therapist will be at the guests’ beck-and-call with an array of unlimited treatments. Following a day of pampering, they can spend some quiet time with their loved one with spa-inspired turn down experiences ranging from candlelight romance, sparkling wine, honey delights and more; a welcome surprise every evening on return to their spa sanctuary.
Those staying at Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah and looking to venture away from their villa can choose to dine à deux at the tip of the peninsula with the Pavilion Dining Experience. Taking romance to another level, they will enjoy a private dining experience complemented by panoramic sea views and a barbeque served by a personal chef.
Meanwhile, those staying in the sandy oasis of Banyan Tree Al Wadi can complement their treatments with stargazing and dining at this unique Arabian-inspired resort. Starting their wanderlust weekend with a champagne breakfast, as they watch the sunrise from their very own Safran Tower; the day unfolds with indulgent spa treatments; and concludes with the resort’s Stargazing Experience. Exclusively offered at Banyan Tree Al Wadi, guests can marvel at the night with a local astronomer and explore the starry night together.
The Arabian-nights experience is complete with a Desert Dining experience where a camel escorts couples to a fairy
tale setting. A table for two in the heart of the sandy wilderness awaits, alongside a personal butler who is on hand to serve drinks followed by a sumptuous barbeque.
