Hey Sathish,

It really depends on your lifestyle, but the fact that your new workplace will provide food and accommodation decreases your own expenses by a lot. You can get an idea of how much things cost in Dubai by clicking here, but because different people have different lifestyles and expectations, it's difficult to say offhand whether a salary will be enough - but as I said, it sounds as though your company will be covering most of your major expenses.

For a more comprehensive list of prices in Dubai, check out Expatistan or Numbeo (you can do a Google search to find them).

Good luck with your new venture!
