Located just 6.5 kilometers from Dubai’s coast, the island offers the perfect blend of an island retreat and a Dubai city break. With 24/7 butler service, an infinity pool, shallow lagoons, lush tropical gardens, a pool bar, and a restaurant, newlyweds are sure to experience a perfect mix of luxury and tranquility.

Josef Kleindienst, chairman of The Heart of Europe, expressed his excitement: “St Petersburg Island will be a dream destination for couples and newlyweds. The five-star resort will offer privacy, tranquility, and first-class hospitality to ensure a memorable experience. The honeymoon business is a multi-billion dollar industry.”

A European Experience in Dubai

St Petersburg Island is part of a broader vision to bring a slice of Europe to Dubai. The Heart of Europe project includes other islands such as Sweden, Germany, Main Europe, Switzerland, and Monaco. Each island will offer unique attractions and experiences, from luxury hotels and marinas to European cafes, boutiques, and live entertainment.

Main Europe, the largest island, will serve as the central hub, featuring luxury hotels, climate-controlled streets, cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. Switzerland will enchant visitors with snow-lined streets, a permanent circus, and a mountain spa, while Monaco will boast Club B, a members-only beach club, a yacht-lined harbor, and vibrant nightlife. Germany will offer beach villas and host themed events like Oktoberfest, providing guests with a taste of European culture and festivities.
