I know that it is very common for western couples to be able to share a room together. Since my friend is muslim I think it is a complication. He does not seem as worried as me but he is not from Dubai. I think we would probably get separate rooms anyway but I am concerned about even if we are hanging out in one or the other rooms do you think we would be found out/ get in a lot of trouble. I know the easy thing would be to say only hang out in public but I would like to be reassured that we could hang out in private if we wanted to without being in trouble?

    If he is Muslim, you are asking for trouble. You would have to lie, and claim to be married to register in a room together. If you get separate rooms, no one will think twice, though, even if you stay in his room. But if you're looking for a romantic vacation spot, There are better places than Dubai. over 5 years ago

    Hi there. It's not "legal" however everybody does it. Just do your best to stay out of the limelight. Above answer is a good one - get two rooms, or even twin beds. However, just say that you're married and that should be fine. Even wear wedding rings so that there are no suspicions. Unfortunately in Dubai it's really left at the discretion of the hotel staff. Normally they don't question you though. over 5 years ago
