If the previous four pages have had you fighting back feelings of romance-induced nausea, relax – the mush-fest is over. Everyone knows that single people have more fun on Valentine’s Day (those who aren’t sat at home, sobbing into their ex’s old jumper and watching Love Actually for the 14th time, at least), and, from singles’ nights to evenings geared around pure self-indulgence, there’s plenty going on in town for those yet to find their Mr or Mrs Schnooky-wookums.

February 13. Le Royal Méridien (02 674 2020)

Belgian Café For a more informal Valentine’s Day outing, head to this European-themed drinking hole, where you’ll be able to enjoy a three-course meal from the excellent bar food on offer, accompanied by a bottle of bubbly, should you want to add a bit of fizz to the occasion. Dhs700 per couple. February 13. InterContinental Abu Dhabi (02 666 6888)

The couple’s massage lesson

Book a couple’s massage lesson at Zen Spa for something a little bit different.

Italiano

Fiori: ordinati. Limousine: prenotata. Serenata: pronta. Pare che i festeggiamenti per San Valentino possano cominciare. Resta solo da prenotare il ristorante…

Ecco a voi una selezione di ristoranti dove portare la propria dama (o farsi portare dal proprio cavaliere) per la serata di San Valentino. La selezione è stata fatta da TimeOut Dubai, ecco perchè le recensioni sono in inglese. Sono tuttavia ben visibili (oltre ai nomi dei ristoranti, che aprono ciascun paragrafo) i costi (espressi in Dirham, Dhs) e i numeri di telefono per prenotare. Se usate un cellulare italiano, non dimenticate di eliminare lo zero e anteporre il prefisso internazionale 00971:

050 1179474 diventa 00971 50 1179474

Ricordiamo che San valentino quest’anno cade alla vigilia del compleanno del Profeta Maometto (Milad an Nabi), ricorrenza religiosa durante la quale il consumo di alcool è vietato, anche all’interno degli hotel internazionali. Il Dipartimento del Turismo e del Commercio di Dubai ha proibito la vendita di alcoli dalle 18 del 14 febbraio e per le 24 ore successive. Molti hotel, in genere non interessati dal divieto del consumo di alcool, in quanto considerati una zona franca da questo punto di vista, si sono adeguati proponendo come serata di celebrazione per le coppie che non intendono rinunciare allo champagne, il 13 sera.

In the first two weeks of the festival, Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group has reported a 30 per cent growth in sales of its ‘Bag of Fortune’ campaign from participating jewellery retail outlets in Dubai, already having given away seven kilos of gold in raffle draws to residents and tourists of various nationalities. Gold prices have fallen in the last week intensifying consumer interest in the precious metal, with many using the opportunity to buy more gold and jewellery. Another input is a real chance to win half a kilo of gold, instant cash prizes and a bumper five kilos of gold at the end of the festival.
