A Dubai hen party really is the ultimate in pre-wedding luxury. This millionaires' playground has everything you could need to give the bride-to-be an amazing weekend that she'll never forget.
This was a breeze from start to finish. Friendly and helpful staff, great house and the activities booked were just fab.
Imagine a bar in Dubai… yeah, that’s exactly what it’s like! Being a hen in Dubai is life complete. Sipping an expertly crafted cocktail whilst reclining on a stunning rooftop bar? Sounds like heaven - you will wonder how life ever got this good.
Glamour is everything and there’s not a bar in the city that isn’t decked out and finished to perfection. Hens, you’re in drinking heaven!
Of course, the best views are down by the seafront, and around The Palm Jumeirah you’ll find a little hive of bars that, one elevator ride later, will transport you into complete luxury. My oh my, what a happy group of hens you’ll be when you see the impossibly lengthy drinks menus and beyond Insta-worthy sea views.
Where can we begin? Everything in Dubai is worth seeing from weird everyday wonders (air-conditioned bus stops) to the top of the range, jaw dropping mega-malls of the rich and tasteless (best to leave the credit cards in the hotel safe, safely out of temptation).
The beach is a great place to sort out those pre-wedding tans but make sure you're away of the dress codes so you don't cause offence.
Dubai is built on the water and a boat trip is another must to really get a sense of the scale and how much Dubai has been etched into the desert landscape.
Dance under the stars (with a few stars) at Pacha. This stunning venue has a great relaxed vibe with great food, fabulous cocktails and even live entertainment. This really is a dream venue, perfect for any big night out.

If you have champagne tastes and lemonade pockets then Karama Market is a great place to go (you can travel by abra - see below). You'll find all kinds of leather foods and trinkets along with a few dodgy 'designer' goods of dubious origin. You can also have a good haggle to get the best price.
On the other side of the tracks you can find the Dubai Mall, perhaps one of the most incredible shopping experiences on the planet. The most exclusive designer brands can all be found here as well as a few more attainable items. Great for window shopping and that 'must have' item you just haven't met yet.
Even the bus stops in Dubai are fancy and have air conditioning. Not something you're ever likely to find (or need) at your local No27 stop.
Taxis are really cheap but some can seem a little reckless. Fun if you like living dangerously, less entertaining if you're really concerned about getting to your destination in one piece.
The metro over ground train network is really well priced and really clean (like a fancy monorail) while if you want something a little more traditional you can ride on an abra (wooden boat) which will take you to the traditional souks/markets.
One other thing that's good to know is Dubai has one of the lowest crime rates in the world (although like any city, always keep your wits about you and valuables and passports out of view.)
Dubai is a hen party paradise! But it does have more conservative values and very strict laws regarding alcohol and public decency. That doesn't mean you can't have a fantastic time. Here's our quick Dubai guide.
Dubai is an extremely safe destination for women travellers. In fact, the US Department of Diplomatic Security published a report in 2016 giving the city a “low” crime rating and commented that “the crime rate is considerably lower than in most cities throughout the world of similar size”.

All these rules can be a little intimidating, but as long as you follow them and respect this amazing city's culture and traditions you'll have an unforgettable time celebrating the bride-to-be's last weekend as a single lady.

Dubai is home to some of the world’s most luxurious and expensive hotels and attracts global stars, billionaire businessmen and royalty from across the globe. You can make the most of the incredible shops, Dubai is packed with designer names and high end stores with everything from Gucci, to Rolls Royce and everything in between. In fact if you can’t find it during your Dubai hen weekend it really isn’t worth finding.

Dubai is also home to Atlantis, The Palm. This huge engineering project is a giant marina and resort packed full of homes of some of the world’s richest people and a galaxy of stars. As the name suggests, this incredible atoll is in the shape of a giant palm tree and as well as the high end homes also houses hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and even a waterpark.
The bride-to-be and her hen party will be in fine company as a number of stars reportedly have homes in Dubai.
