Emirates offers lucky First Class and Business Class passengers a free night’s stay at a luxurious five-star hotel in Dubai if they purchase a return ticket or a layover in the Gulf city between January 30 and February 13, 2023.

The U.A.E.-based airline has teamed up with global luxury hotel chain Fairmont Hotels and Resorts to launch this new offer, which lines up perfectly for those looking to book an exclusive, romantic getaway in time for Valentine’s Day. The offer includes a complimentary night’s stay at Fairmont the Palm—an iconic Dubai hotel with a private beach.

The offer is available right now and runs until February 13. It can be redeemed when making bookings either on Emirates website or with participating travel agents.

To be eligible, you must book a return flight to Dubai or an overnight layover in Dubai—either First Class or Business Class. Bookings must also be made at least 72 hours before arriving in Dubai.

Fairmont the Palm is an iconic 5-star hotel in the heart of Dubai, named after the Palm Jumeirah, a vast, artificial archipelago of islands in the Arabian Gulf. With a total of 381 luxurious rooms and suites overlooking the Gulf and the stunning Dubai skyline, it’s ideal for couples seeking a romantic getaway and families looking for comfort and entertainment.

The hotel has at least ten different restaurants and bars, meaning guests can sample premium dishes, snacks, and beverages without leaving the premises. It also includes a state-of-the-art health center, four outdoor swimming pools, and a beautiful and private white-sand beach.

Guests with little ones can use the Fairmont Falcons Kids’ Club, which will keep children between 18 months and 12 years entertained with its playhouse, splash park, climbing wall, and activities.

Those looking to get some peace away from the children can indulge in the Fairmont Willow Stream Spa, which includes steam rooms, a sauna, and chill-out lounges.

Fairmont the Palm is also in an ideal location, just a stone’s throw from the Dubai Marina and other popular attractions, such as the world-famous Burj Khalifa tower and the Burj Al Arab hotel. It’s also located just 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport, so it is convenient for guests on an overnight layover.

Emirates customers can also enjoy great discounts at several retail, leisure, and dining attractions throughout Dubai and the U.A.E., thanks to the ‘My Emirates Pass’ program. To qualify for the discounts, you must present your Emirates boarding pass and a valid form of identification at participating outlets.
