My view is that the cost of living is relative. Firstly it depends where you are moving from. From the UK it is still quite cheap, from India it is quite expensive. Also it depends what "paid for" benefits you receive for example housing with uttilities paid will decrease your budget significantly.
You can try www.xpatulator.com to do a calculation of your current salary in your current location and it will calculate what you need to earn in the UAE.
