Looking to go this week for Shabbos.

Chabad is at the address. Standard rooms are closing $680 a night after tax.
According to my Rav I can go to Addess before Shabbos and have goy walk stroller back.

Any recommendations where I should stay (donít want to move around) ? Nicest/cheapest place in the marina ? Any other Shabbos tips ?

Thanks

Trying to see if there's any way to be in Dubai over Shabbos without relying on others to open doors and push elevator buttons etc  or: staying in a room the whole Shabbos?  Is anyone aware of any airbnbs with combo locks or has another idea? Thanks

It was $125 per person. Including kosher food, dune bashing, camel riding...

Didn't end up going so can't comment on the actual experience.

This is the WhatsApp contact of the guy who does it: +972 58-551-1911

I did just the food part with my brother. We rented an expedition and went dune bashing on our own (DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU ARE NOT A PRO!)
The show (tznius beduin dancing, POI fire show) was nice, the food left a bit to be desired (seems like he had a lot of last minute bookings so there wasn't that much meat - but it did not seem like anyone left hungry)

I don't want to ruin it for anyone by posting Vids & pics

You're supposed to download the app but nobody asked or checked IME. Do make sure you have a printed copy of your pcr test though.
