Hotel Check-in Process

Unless otherwise requested check-in is on Thursday April 1st at 2pm and check-out is on Wednesday April 7th by 12pm.  You will require your passport and a valid debit or credit card.  In Dubai all hotels charge what is called Dubai City tax every night that you stay.  This is billed by the hotel to you on arrival.  It is a relatively small amount of approximately $5.50 USD per night per room.

 

Airport Transfers

We do not provide airport transfers. You would need to arrange this. The hotel is about a 30-minute taxi ride away from Dubai International Airport (DXB).  There are public taxi stands directly outside the airport and should cost no more than $30 USD.  Dubai also has Uber car services available, and these services are also available right outside the airport. Just connect to Dubai International Airport’s free unlimited Wi-Fi connection and request yourself an Uber.

 

Airport Duty Free

Make sure you stop by duty free to pick up any liquors you may want to keep in your room.  Liquor Stores are easy to find in Dubai, however a permit is needed to buy from them.  You need to be a resident and non-Muslim.

 

Zero Tolerance in Dubai

We seek to ensure The Dubai Experience will be a most memorable experience, however in doing so there are some rules we must share with you to ensure the well-being of all our guests and staff members.  Please be aware that action of any of the below will automatically result in your event access being terminated.

 

 

 

The Rules in Dubai

1. Face Masks

Facial coverings have been mandatory in the UAE since the height of the pandemic. A 3,000 Dirham ($800 USD) fine remains for anyone not adhering to safety regulations.

2. Do NOT Drink in Public

Dubai is one of the most liberal locations in the Muslim world when it comes to booze consumption.  However, you must respect the rules, be discreet and do not cross the line or there will be repercussions. Public inebriation is not tolerated, so go easy on that all-you-can-drink champagne brunch or nightclub.

 

3. Do NOT Do Drugs

Just say no to dabbling in drugs in Dubai.  Dubai has a zero-tolerance policy towards possession, use and selling of illicit substances.  It goes beyond the standard list of illegal narcotics you would expect like marijuana, ecstasy, heroin and cocaine.  Even prescription pharmaceuticals and some over-the-counter medications may be considered contraband.  Do your homework on what is and is not permitted before bringing anything potentially suspect into the country.

 

4. Public Displays of Affection

Public affection is considered indecent in Dubai, so keep your make-out sessions completely private.  You do see some married couples or same-sex pals holding hands, but this is a grey area.  Its best to refrain from all forms of PDA to stay on the safe side.

 

5. No Nudity

This one should go without saying, but nudity is not allowed in public places.  Appropriate swimwear is okay at the beach, pool or water parks, but women must refrain from going topless. And men, keep that six-pack undercover and put a shirt on when walking through the streets.

 

6. No Abusive Language or Violence

We will not accept any abusive language to any of our staff, hotel staff, venue staff or locals.  Please discuss any issues with a member of our team for the matter to be resolved in an appropriate calm manner.

 

7. Watch Your Photography

Many travelers to foreign lands want to capture pictures of local people in their national dress as a photographic souvenir of their trip. However, you must be respectful of local customs and conventions when it comes to this. In Dubai it is considered rude and intrusive to snap shots of people, especially women, without expressed permission.

 

8. Keep Style Sensible

Keep your clothing relatively conservative (don’t flash a lot) especially during the day time.
