  • The Eid holidays will start on the 28th. The last time we went we had a absolute blast and so join us for a fun 1 or 2 night Eid getaway at the Barracuda Beach Resort including breakfast for a cost of AED 500 per person per night on a twin sharing basis. (One night AED 500/2 nights AED 1000 per person). Single rooms (which can occupy 2) are AED 1000 for a night including breakfast. It is peak holiday season and so the resort will sell out and so please RSVP ASAP. Please bring cash on the day as I have to pay together for the whole group. Lunches and dinners will have to be paid on a consumption basis and are reasonably priced. Those who wish can go to the Dreamland Aqua Park close by (ticket circa AED 100 will have to be purchased) on one or both of the days. 

    Please indicate whether you want to come for 1 night (28th) or two (28th and 29th) when you RSVP and whether you want a room to yourself (or for yourself and a guest). 

    The Event will look like this:

    1) Attendees make their own way to the Barracuda Resort in Umm ul Quwain. We will try and coordinate car shares/pools from Dubai/AD but the resort is only about 60 minutes drive from Dubai. (Perhaps about AED 200 by taxi from Dubai which if shared by 4 people is not too much for the convenience)

    2) We will arrive at the resort before 3pm on the 28th and after checking in head to the pool. Following that we will all get together and head to their restaurant and bar. Drinks here are at the Barracuda Wine outlet price and so potentially the lowest you can find in the UAE. You are also welcome to buy as much beverage as you like from the Barracuda Wine outlet next door.

    4) After a leisurely breakfast on the 29th morning we will either retire to our rooms for a siesta, lie by the pool, hang out on their beach or socialise in their bar. Those who wish to can go to the Dreamland Aqua Park next door (tickets will have to be purchased separately for it..circa AED 100). The evening will be more socialising at the bar or lolling in the pool. 

    5) We will have a big breakfast and then check out and depart on the 30th at about 12 noon.

    Check in time is 3.00PM & Check out time is 12.00PM.

    You should also be informed you that the resort overlooks a lagoon and as such they do not have beach facility (there is a sand beach but entering the sea is not advisable due to weeds and irregular tidal waves. They however have a nice pool!)

    Please do not RSVP if you are unsure of your plans as I have to prebook and guarantee numbers in order to ensure that all of us get accommodation in the resort for the nights. The resort will sell out as it is peak holiday season so we have to act fast. Please provide your mobile number when you RSVP.  Please call/text me on[masked] if you have any questions.
