A honeymoon trip is perhaps the most special journey of a couple’s life, which is why it has to be perfect! Seeking this perfection, Ashish booked himself and his wife a 6 nights 7 days Dubai honeymoon package and set off to make memories on the golden deserts of Arabia. Here’s an account of what made his trip his life’s most memorable holiday experience!

Traveling is synonymous with spending quality time with loved ones in novel destinations. It’s all about having new experiences and taking a break from routine life to de-stress.
Being doctors with extremely busy schedules, me and my wife knew we would hardly have any time to make all arrangements for the trip. Though we had finalised our destination – Dubai – long back, we were stuck with hotel bookings and the itinerary. That’s when TravelTriangle came to our rescue!
A friend of mine had suggested TravelTriangle to me. Being a travel blogger himself, he had apparently traveled via TT some time back and had full faith in their services. After we had sent in our query, the company’s Dubai team immediately got to work and furnished us a fantastic itinerary according to our preferences with top choices for hotels.
We had to put in minimal effort in planning our trip. Everything was well taken care of by TravelTriangle, all within our budget!
Here’s a detailed account of my trip to Dubai:
DAY 1: Quad Biking & BBQ Delicacies on Golden Sands
We arrived in Dubai at around 11 AM and were escorted to our hotel – Hilton Garden Almina. After resting for a while, we proceeded for the first activity in our Dubai itinerary – the Desert Safari. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed quad biking on those golden dunes (at our own expense), followed by a back-breaking but fun round of dune bashing.
An afternoon of exciting activities on the sand was followed by an entertaining evening where we enjoyed freshly prepared barbecue dinner on the sands while watching performances of Belly Dance, Tanoura Dance, and Fire Show. The food was average, but the experience of watching those shiny performances under the starry sky made up for it!
DAY 2: Dubai City Tour With Miracle Garden And Global Village
We spent the morning exploring the popular attractions of Dubai as part of our Dubai city tour. This was followed by a visit to the Miracle Garden, where, millions of flowers all around you proved to be an out of world experience!
Later, we explored the Global Village, an enormous place that offered a stupendous shopping extravaganza unlike anywhere else. The best part about Global Village was the Bollywood Dance and Monster Truck Show!
DAY 3: Playing With Snow In Ski Dubai Snow Park
In the morning we went to Ski Dubai and totally loved it! It was freezing in contrast to the scorching temperature of Dubai outside. We engaged in a lot of fun snowy rides before proceeding to the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa in the evening.
It was a lifetime experience to watch the Musical Fountain from the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa.
DAY 4: Shopping In Gold Souk And Sailing On The Dhow Cruise
The fourth day of our Dubai honeymoon trip was a leisure day, so we went to the Dubai Frame, the largest picture frame in the world! This was followed by a visit to the Meena Bazaar and Gold Souk where we treated ourselves with some light shopping.
In the evening we sailed the Dubai Creek aboard the Dhow Cruise where we enjoyed a hearty meal, some traditional dance performances, and a glittering view of Dubai’s skyline.
DAY 5: Riding Ferraris And Exploring The Dazzling Realms Of Grand Mosque
In the morning we boarded our SIC coach to travel to Abu Dhabi for a tour of this amazing place. After around 2 hours of traveling, we reached this new-age metropolitan and immediately escaped to Ferrari World – the much-awaited part of our trip. Saying that it was an awesome experience would be an understatement!
We tried as many of those thrilling rides as we could but still couldn’t get enough of this paradise. Later, we proceeded for an eventful city tour of Abu Dhabi. Though we enjoyed visiting all of Abu Dhabi’s attractions more or less, it was the Sheikh Zayed Mosque that took our breath away with its incredible architecture and stunning outlook!
DAY 6: Hotel Atlantis And Aquaventure Waterpark
This day, we moved to Hotel Atlantis in the morning, as we wanted to experience a stay at this luxurious abode before heading home. Since their check-in time was 3 PM, they provided us free passes to the Aquaventure Waterpark where we enjoyed 3-4 water rides till it was time to check-in. The most excellent of these rides was the Lazy River where we found ourselves laughing and splashing water like silly little kids!
After we had pleased our hearts with the ultra luxurious interiors of this grand hotel and our room, we proceeded to Lost Chambers in the evening. This bizarre aquarium is undoubtedly one of the best attractions in Dubai, and so is the dining experience at its Kaleidoscope restaurant! One must not miss these two experiences on their Dubai honeymoon trip.
DAY 7: Bidding Farewell To Dubai
We had a lavish breakfast at Saffron, the amazing restaurant at Atlantis, before being dropped at the airport for our return flight. We boarded our flight well in time with fond memories of our trip and the hope to return to this paradise someday!
We cannot thank TravelTriangle enough for brewing us a superb trip and providing all sorts of comforts and amenities during it. Needless to say, we had the most amazing time of our lives!
Our WOW Moments Of The Trip: Though the whole trip was one big WOW for us, we would like to single out the following experiences.
- The visit to Burj Khalifa & Dubai Mall – it was an awesome feeling to see the magnificent water fountain show from the staggering heights of The Burj.
- The visit to Miracle Garden & Global Village was simply fantastic!
- My wife enjoyed a lot at Ferrari World.
- The Desert Safari was one hell of an adventure!
- Ski Dubai – playing with snow in a desert, where else do you get that privilege?
What We Missed Out On: We wish we had more time to explore the exciting spots of Dubai like the Glow Garden.

- Book Dhow Marina Cruise instead of Dhow Cruise.
