The founder and managing director of Emirates World Club, which is a Dubai VIP private members club, Romika Fazeli says that celebs are attracted to Dubai due to the high-quality standards of life and this is why they call this beautiful city their second home. 

She further said, “Dubai is a city defined by its great cleanliness and safety as well as the comfort of living. I have been living in Dubai for 13 years and I can say with 100% certainty that the customer service we experience here is second to none. Every culture and nationality are not only accepted but also highly respected which makes everyone feel at home here.

I also truly believe that one of the reasons why celebrities choose Dubai as their second home is the very well-respected privacy of everyone. Through my VIP-concierge company and my personal network, we experience that a lot of movies are also shot and produced here in Dubai. Speaking with the celebrities directly, I often hear that after spending time here, it’s very difficult for them to leave this beautiful city as they are very much impressed by the unique lifestyle.
