Revered as one of Abu Dhabi’s most lavish destinations, the Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri are laying on the sort of romantic Valentine’s that dreams are made of, so if you’ve got wads of cash and perhaps a proposal in mind, this is the spot for you.
For a cool Dhs400,000, guests will be picked up in a private limo from anywhere in the city and driven to the hotel for the most elegant of arrivals, where you'll be checked-in to the exquisitely decorated Presidential Suite, which will include fresh flowers, premium gourmet chocolates and the finest vintage bubbles on ice.
As you await an evening of sheer indulgence, a trip to the hotel’s spa will ensure you’re glowing from head to toe, with your very own highly experienced professional offering a menu of pampering treatments you can enjoy, called the ‘Indulgence of Time’ which includes an exfoliating and cleansing caviar facial.
Once you’re looking glam and gorgeous, a private table for dinner on the rooftop awaits, complete with a sumptuous seven course set menu accompanied by a selection of specially chosen vintage grape and bubbles. While savouring a variety of personally customised dishes, including caviar, oysters and other superior French delicacies, guests are entertained courtesy of their very own magician and private musician.
After dessert, the couple will also exchange gifts, with an array of Montre Hublot and Dior couture pieces handpicked by a personal shopper.
And if all of that doesn’t take your breath away, the helicopter ride in which you’ll absorb the glittering capital sights in all its glory, will certainly leave you on an all-time high! We’ll keep the weekend free just in case…
