New Dubai island might just be the world's most romantic place
If you’re looking for a romantic escape for two, you’ll be hard pressed to beat this one.
Just off the coast of Dubai, as part of the upcoming The Heart of Europe (THOE) in The World Islands, lies St Petersburg – an island designed in the shape of a heart.
In keeping with the island’s design, project developer Kleindienst have revealed they will be turning the destination into a honeymoon resort.
Josef Kleindienst, Chairman of The Heart of Europe, said: “St Petersburg Island will be a dream destination for couples and newlyweds. The five star resort will offer privacy, tranquility and first-class hospitality.
“The honeymoon business is a multi-billion dollar industry and we are excited by the prospect of newly-married couples choosing to spend the most special holiday of their lives at St Petersburg Island very soon.”
Here’s where THOE will be located:
The idea for the island is inspired by honeymoon hotspots found in the Maldives, Bora Bora and the Caribbean.
Around this island is where you’ll find the famed Floating Seahorse villas – the half-submerged luxury, floating homes.
To keep it exclusive, St Petersburg Island will be around 6.5 kilometres away from the city – roughly a 20-minute trip – in order to ensure privacy for couples.
On the island, guests will have access to an infinity pool, shallow lagoons, lush tropical gardens and a pool bar and restaurant. Snorkelling and diving activities will also be offered, along with spa and relaxation facilities.
The island can either be reached by helicopter, seaplane or boat.
Guests will also have access to the Main Europe and Switzerland section of THOE, which will play home to climate-controlled technology all year round, as well as a Honeymoon Resort set to open at the end of 2018.
