There are land based resort and luxury hotel gigs all over the world.

I have worked in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Spain and most recently in Mumbai, India. (photos below).

Generally speaking, you will work 6 nights a week. There is good work for bands, Duo’s and Solo’s. Equipment is usually all provided – you just need to take your instruments.

If possible, make sure your accommodation is on site. I played at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi for a few months and had to live outside the hotel for a while. It was a pain – meals, getting hot and sweaty if you walked in and the extra time factor. They soon moved us back on site, which is better all round
