Find peace at the adults-only pool and swim-up bar

With a wealth of pristine pools and a private beach to while away sun-kissed afternoons together, you needn’t overload your schedule with activities and sightseeing. Simply enjoy a moment of peace and quiet together, lazing by the shore of our private beach or swim gentle laps in one of our three outdoor swimming pools. Steal away to enjoy respite from the sun and refresh at one of our many pool-side and swim-up bars, before diving back into the crystal waters.


Private couple’s spa treatment in your own room

Enjoy blissful treatments, hammam experiences and more at our luxurious island spa and reinvigorate with professional workouts and traditional therapies. During your stay, you can also take relaxation to the next level with a private couple’s treatment in your room and sink into the sublime luxury of an afternoon of pure pampering together. Choose from our collection of massage, skincare and beauty spa treatments and our dedicated team will be happy to create a bespoke experience upon request.


Stroll around the astounding Abu Dhabi Louvre

A museum may not strike you as the most romantic of settings, until you visit the first museum of its kind in the Arab states – the Louvre Abu Dhabi. A landmark arts and culture destination, the sheer scale and serenity of this architectural masterpiece dreamt up by Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel will transport you to an otherworldly exploration of striking artwork together. Borne from a partnership with France, the museum showcases classic masterpieces and contemporary Arab art as well as highlighting the area’s multicultural heritage. Wandering through the museum’s light-dappled galleries, you’ll come across highlights like Leonardo da Vinci's La Belle Ferronnière—one of only 15 known paintings by the artist. Aside from permanent collections, each year the Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts four temporary exhibitions co-organised with its French partners, meaning an ever-changing showcase of international talent. Sound is as important here as vision, with music and multicultural performances underpinning the creative output from the museum’s auditorium.


Sunset dinner at The Lobster Lounge

An all-new rooftop pop-up concept, the Lobster Lounge brings an exceptional feel to a bustling setting and promises dramatic views of the sea to mark the occasion. Book here to enjoy your last evening together in an open-air atmosphere on the resort’s fifth-floor terrace, serving up exquisite European dishes with a smart casual dress code. Enjoy delicious food, beverages and a shisha menu if you wish, as you celebrate a memorable holiday together.
