Tilal Liwa Hotel + Drive - Friends and Family Weekend August the 9th and 10th

Post by Rocklad » Wed Jun 27, 2018 7:30 am

Liwa is not a drive for first timers but as long as you have had 5 drives with DO you can participate in the convoys, otherwise feel free to join the hotel stay/and or find a seat as a passenger.

Ethos of Weekend
This is a social event where all your family can come, even those that don’t enjoy driving off road. The hotel is a nice location for a getaway for the weekend, and it’s a nice relaxed way for all of us, including our partners to meet, socialize and generally have a good time together. Only the drivers need attend the drive, everyone else can stay by the pool and enjoy the hotel. More importantly it gives us drivers a chance to experience Liwa and keep the family happy.

The Drive/Schedule
The hotel is about 50mins away from Liwa, so drivers will have to wake up early on Friday AM to catch the 6am breakfast and hopefully be on the sand by 7:30am. I am planning on at least 2 convoys dependent on marshals and members registrations.
• Fewbie/newbie will have a 4-5 hour drive in Liwa and try to be back for a late lunch
• Inter/Advanced will do whatever they like but will be back for dinner
• There is an opportunity for a local drive in the dunes near the Hotel on Saturday morning if enough people want to
• If you are driving straight from Dubai, you can meet us at this petrol station at 7am https://goo.gl/maps/5wCJtwfnbNr

Cost/Package
I have done my best to negotiate a good rate with the hotel. It includes an all-inclusive package including breakfast, lunch, dinner and free flowing house beverages and soft drinks till 10pm for each room. Thursday night they have extended the drinks till midnight to accommodate those that might be arriving late from Dubai. The rooms are for up to 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and below. Those of you that are coming alone might want to share a bedroom with other single members to halve the cost. The following costs are Net, unlike groupon where 20% taxes are added.
• 1 Night 650 NET
• 2 Night 1100 NET

Booking/Sign Up
1. Click on link
1a ONE NIGHT STAY
Code for 1 night : AD-DOR-ALL
(1 night) : https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx?Hotel=52 ... AD-DOR-ALL

1b. TWO NIGHTS STAY
Code for 2 nights : AD-DOR-ALL2
(2 nights): https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx?Hotel=52 ... D-DOR-ALL2

2. Once room booking is confirmed select the “Im in” button on this forum and post the dates and number of people coming etc.
3. Please don’t leave booking to the last minute, I don’t know how quickly the available rooms will be booked. But I imagine the hotel will be fully booked by mid-July and you will miss out on this opportunity.

Checklist for the drive
a) Carry air compressor with you and ensure it’s in working condition.
b) Ensure your 4x4 vehicle is in perfect condition and with enough fuel.
c) Compatible Radio is a must. You won't be allowed to drive without one.
d) Carry enough refreshments for yourself & co-passengers.
e) Have an off road flag properly attached to your car.
