Hotel Check-in Process
Unless otherwise requested check-in is on Thursday March 9th at 2:00pm and check-out is on Wednesday March 15th by 12:00pm. 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 about $5.50 USD per night per room. Early check in fee is about $20 USD (room) starting at 6:00am.
We do not provide airport transfers. You would need to arrange this. The hotel is about a 30-minute or less taxi ride away from Dubai International Airport (DXB). There are public taxi stands directly outside the airport and should cost no more than $25 - $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, what is not is the permit 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. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Keep Style Sensible
Keep your clothing relatively conservative (don’t flash a lot) especially during the day time.
