I can’t lie. I started thinking about Valentine’s Day in December on Christmas Break. That might not be too far ahead for some but my point is…I love the holidays! I mean, I seriously celebrate almost all of them.

My husband and I decided to spend our Valentine’s Day in Dubai!


He made me a cake!


About Our Hotel Stay
After living in the UAE for 4 months, we are no longer strangers to the luxurious hotels. We randomly chose one of the premier 4-star Dubai hotels, Courtyard Dubai, because of our interest in the Green Community.

The Area and Sightseeing To Do List:
-The Green Community

-Dubai Investment Park

-Jebel Ali

-Dubai Media City
-Dubai World Central

When I asked my hubby what he wanted for Vday he started listing a bunch of random restaurants. The great thing about this hotel is the diverse dining options with three restaurants, a bar and the 24-hour Rendezvous Lounge all within the hotel.

As a teacher, I worked a full week… Then we headed over to the hotel. I planned to relax in the refreshing outdoor swimming pool…


While hubby gets to keep fit in the state-of-the-art hotel fitness center!


Other hotel accommodations offered (for future reference):
-work areas with broadband Internet
-luxurious Marriott Revive bedding
-24-hour room service
-superb event venues
-business amenities
-exceptional catering services
-is easily accessible from the new Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport

Will we stay again?
Yes! The lobby is newly renovated but the rooms are not. After chatting with hotel staff, I learned that the hotel is 10 years old.


Happy Valentine’s Day with Heavy Love from Syn of Syn and Sand!
This Valentine’s Day, I hope that you forget the chocolate and roses — on purpose and try something different.


Make this the most relaxing Valentine’s Day ever — for you and your Valentine. A Weekend getaway is the perfect way to say “I love you” in an unexpected way. I’m just happy to relax and feel loved. No matter your thoughts on the holiday, you don’t need a special day to show how much you care you your loved ones.

Note: The room minibar was reasonably priced!

The bathroom was of a fair size but it didn’t meet “Dubai” expectations.
