LOCATION

West Bay A11, Dubai Marina, Dubai

Driving Directions

Google Maps

If you are driving to the boat, use ‘Masjid Al Rahim’ (click for map) Mosque in Dubai Marina as a reference.

Another nearby landmark is ‘Lotus Hotel & Spa’ in Dubai Marina.

If you are taking a TAXI you can tell the same Masjid Al Rahim mosque as reference, make sure to clarify its next to Lotus Hotel & Spa.

Driving Directions

  • You should take Sheikh Zayed Road Until ‘EXIT 29’ and stick to the left fork once you are taking the Exit.
  • After you have taken the left road on the fork and once you are on the bridge, you need to take the first right.
  • As you follow the road you will see the mosque on your left side.

Parking

Option 1: All along the roads in that area is street parking owned by RTA. Make sure you pay the fee by SMS.

Option 2: Incase you cannot find RTA parking, there is a paid parking lot called ‘Green Parking’, located just after the Choitram supermarket, slightly down the road from Lotus Hotel & Spa.

Walking To The Boat

  • Usually infront of the boat we have a Team Member, Anjoh (052 899 6337) who meets guests and guides them towards the boat.
  • Once infront of the mosque, to the left of it there is a path/walk way which leads down to the ‘Marina Promenade’ which is basically the pedesetrian path along the water.
  • Once you have walked down the pathway, walk to your right, there is a glassdoor entrance.
  • At the entrance, specify you are going to “Alexandra” and you will be guided to the boat.

SAILING ROUTE

We sail through the entire Dubai Marina Canal and the lagoon infront of Palm Island.

We do not go out to open sea.

Wedding Dubai

Planning your wedding in Dubai can be very overwhelming, as Dubai weddings have a reputation for being overtly grand and glamorous.

However, wedding trends are shifting towards smaller, cozier- still glamorous- events, especially for engagements or wedding after-parties.

A unique wedding venue in Dubai is a dhow cruise down the Dubai Marina. It’s a unique and intimate way of celebrating this wonderful occasion. Not to mention, a romantic one too.

Its very important to consider many factors when planning a wedding in Dubai

  1. Picking the right wedding venue.
  2. Picking the right menu
  3. Picking the right entertainment
  4. Picking the right decorations

Wedding Venue in Dubai

A traditional Dhow Restaurant is one of the most innovative and unique wedding venues in the city, and given some decorations, careful planning & entertainment planning can result in a perfect wedding.

Picture dancing with your partner on the rooftop of the dhow, underneath the desert starlight, surrounded by the cosmopolitan city lights.

On this special occasion, any bride can agree that the ultimate purpose of the event is having her loved ones present and planning a memorable and enjoyable event. This lovely Dubai Marina cruise can be an unforgettable experience for the honorable couple and their guests.

Alexandra is a very unique and special venue for hosting a small and affordable wedding.

Some quick features of the wedding venue:

  1. Open air upper deck, max 55 people seating capacity
  2. Lower air conditioned deck, max 55 people seating capacity
  3. Audio system throughout the boat, centrally controlled with any amount of custom arrangements
  4. 2 washrooms onboard
  5. Buffet tables on upper and lower deck
  6. Variety of tables onboard

The most unique aspect of Alexandra Floating Restaurant as a wedding venue in Dubai is that it’s a boat that moves and thus the scenery is always changing.

Wedding Packages in Dubai

Onboard Alexandra we try to avoid ‘set packages’ but rather we work out ways that make a custom made package for every event and every budget.

Every event requires a different menu and different entertainment, different timing, different duration, different decorations and different logistical requirements.

By tailor making every package we are able to make sure that the wedding is perfectly suited for the needs of the event.

We are able to create packages for more expensive weddings but we mainly specialize in small weddings in Dubai since our boat capacity by the standards of a wedding is rather small.

If the budget of a wedding is low, we are able to put together affordable wedding packages in Dubai.
