I settled on taking her away on a surprise overnight trip to the BanYan Tree Al Wadi which was absolutely stunning...! We stayed in a huge and very luxurious Al Khaimah tented villa with a massive private infinity pool overlooking the desert (pic attached).

I played all her favourite songs in the car on the drive there and she burst into tears as soon as she seen the accommodation. Probably too much information but we spent the whole afternoon drinking cocktails and skinny dipping in the pool (it was very, very private) and I popped the question on the sun deck as the sun was setting over the desert behind us. Cue another half an hour crying followed by about about 40,000 phone calls...!

Steak and champagne dinner to celebrate

Thanks for everyone's suggestions and comments. It was a great success.
