Home to the richest horse race in the world, the Dubai World Cup, this modern hotel is accustomed to hosting grand and glamorous parties for the global social set, assuring you of a spectacular – and utterly unique – destination wedding. 


The rooftop infinity pool, with its vertiginous panorama over the racecourse and the Dubai skyline, is a dramatic backdrop to your big moment. 


All eyes will be on the radiant bride when she enters the grand Meydan Ballroom, which can comfortably seat 250 with limitless potential for wedding décor, from intricate ice carvings to flower-laden table settings. With LED projectors, a stage and dancefloor, it promises an unforgettable party. There’s even a spacious terrace for guests to enjoy, where they can snap candid moments well into the evening.


The influx of high-profile personalities during racing season means the hotel staff know a thing or two about making guests feel special. If it’s racing season (from November to March), your guests will be over the moon about the view from their rooms overlooking all the action on the racecourse. The hotel’s proximity to The Dubai Mall and Dubai International Airport means wedding transfers and last-minute needs are a cinch, while seven restaurants and lounges make dining in a pleasure. PRIME fine dining steakhouse in particular is ideal for a bonding meal for the groomsmen. 


Stuck for unique ways to entertain the bridal party? Along with spa days and night golf on the fully floodlit 9-hole The Track, the hotel can arrange a private, behind-the-scenes stables tour.
