The best places to get engaged in Abu Dhabi


So, it’s time to finally pop the question, and you’ve chosen Abu Dhabi as the spot to do it. Well, we couldn’t agree with you more.

From white, sandy beaches to dramatic dunes – Abu Dhabi is one of the most diverse and profoundly stunning locations you can visit, and the perfect place for romantic gestures like a big proposal.

While many opt for its lavish sister Dubai, the UEA capital has an incredible amount of luxury to offer and stunning backdrops to create the perfect Abu Dhabi engagement.

If you’re looking for a proposal straight out of the movies, we’ve gathered a list of our favourite engagement spots where you’re sure to find the location of your dreams to ask one of the most important questions.

Propose with a stunning sunset at Fossil Rock

Thinking of popping the question and pulling out a glistening diamond rock of a ring? Then we think Fossil Rock will be an incredible place for you to propose. 

If you like to hike and are the type of people that chase views, this stunning spot in Sharjah will have you mesmerised. To get that perfect proposal moment, we suggest you arrive a couple of hours before sunset to give yourself plenty of time to reach the summit and take in the glorious desert as you go.

As the sun goes down, maybe they’ll think you’re tying your walking boot laces after reaching them top, when really, you’re on one knee ready to ask that major question! And the bonus? One of the most stunning views in Abu Dhabi as your proposal backdrop.
