Where to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Dubai 2022?

Valentine’s Week 2022: The month of love is here, and people are already excited about it. Come February, and many look forward to spending time with their dear ones by going on romantic dates, gifting them special tokens of love, asking out their potential love interest, and more, courtesy of the universal celebrations of Valentine’s Day on February 14. On this day, those in love indulge in doing all the mushy things for their partners and potential dates. However, Valentine’s Day is not celebrated just for a single day. The festivities of love last for an entire week. Before Valentine’s Day, people also celebrate Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Hug Day, and Kiss Day. And each day has its own significance.

Valentine’s Day is celebrated to honour Saint Valentine, a Catholic clergyman who lived in Rome in the third century. However, several legends surrounding Saint Valentine have evolved with time. Over the years, this festival has been overly commercialised, with people making grand gestures for their partners and celebrating love and companionship

The most romantic night of the year is fast-approaching (on February 14, in case you’re forgetful). If you’re feeling loved up, Dubai is pulling out all the stops to help you show it – from romantic restaurants to special staycations, here are  places to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Dubai 2022.
