romantic beach dinner for two

08 February, 2023

With the ‘Week of Love’ on the horizon, Anantara Hotels & Resorts will embody different versions of romance, whether that be a love for gastronomy, culture, or an act of self-love to expand one’s horizons and experience a destination anew. Please see below a selection of Anantara experiences underpinned by a genuine sense of place and authenticity that have become synonymous with the brand.

Underwater Dining in the Maldives

At Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas and exclusive to six couples only, indulge in a romantic dinner six metres below the ocean’s surface against the backdrop of Maldives’ best house reef, savouring a five-course degustation menu expertly paired with distinguished wines orchestrated by our resident Wine Guru. Immerse yourself in this exclusive epicurean experience surrounded by panoramic views of nocturnal marine life at play amongst vibrant corals. 

Uber Indulgent Private Island Dining

For the ultra indulgent, at Niyama Private Island guests can celebrate their love in the most romantic of settings.  Start your day sipping on champagne and devouring a sumptuous floating breakfast in your private pool villa. Enjoy an hour of Spa Bliss, followed by an intimate sunset cruise with a bottle of champagne and canapes on the way to a Private Island for your romantic dinner along with live music from saxophonist, private chef, and private butler. 

Dining and Rock Climbing in the Mountains

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort in Oman offers the perfect setting for romance this Valentine’s Day. Winding up the mountainside just as the sun sets, an exclusive romantic dinner for two will be waiting at Bella Vista.  Chef Alexis Teboul, from a sister property in Toulouse, will be hosting dinners from 11 to 14 February. Building his career in belle Paris at the iconic Le Train Bleu and ultra-exclusive George V, the Valentine’s set menu will consist of five courses, with highlight dishes including foie gras, scallops and tournedos Rossini. For more adventurous couples, the resort encourages those with an active and daring spirit to take part in a not-so-traditional Valentine’s Day celebration on the Ultimate Jabal Activity wall or enjoying a signature hike for two.

Star Gazing in the Desert

Nestled within the golden dunes of the fabled Empty Quarter, the fortress-like palace of Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara invites couples to escape for a two-night stay where their every whim will be catered to by a personal butler.  The Mini Moon experience distils the essence of the magnificent Rub’ al Khali desert. In addition to luxuriating in a private sanctuary with striking desert view, couples will be waking up to a bubbly breakfast served in bed each day, venturing out for a relaxing couples’ massage at the spa and stargazing across the vast desert sky away from all artificial light to learn about constellations under the guidance of the resort’s Star Guru.
