It is actually illegal to be in a same sex relationship in Dubai. The law means the gay community is underground there. There are, however, places where gays are quietly welcomed as long as they don’t flaunt it publicly. Many hotels won’t allow gay tourists to stay with them, but there are quite a few hotels that not only allow it, but also help their guests find the underground gay scene.
1. Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach
The Sofitel Dubai is just off of Jumeirah beach and is a popular destination for gay tourists and locals alike. Although the hotel is a bit pricey, exceptional service makes up for it. The hotel also features five star amenities and complete discretion. One of the highlights of this hotel is the size of the rooms, as well as the large jet tubs in each bathroom.
