An overnight stay, brunch, a pool party, TEPfactor challenges, and much more for just Dh699 for two…

You’re invited to the first ever What’s On Lock In: an epic, weekend-long summer party taking place from Friday August 23 to Saturday August 24.

And because we want you to enjoy Dubai in the best possible way – pool parties, brunch extravaganzas, epic staycations and summer libations – we’re taking over the uber-cool Studio One Hotel at an unbeatable price.

For just Dhs699 for two, here’s exactly what’s going down…


On Friday, guests will check into Studio One Hotel early before getting familiarised with all the fun stuff planned for the weekend. You’ll be given the keys to your uber cool room, and handed your itinerary. From 10am to brunch time, you’ll also have access to free services to help you get ready for the day including gents barbers Bristles and Mane, ladies salon N&J by Samer, hand massages courtesy of L’Occitane En Provence, and brunch outfits from chic rental company The Mode.

Meanwhile, ultimate adventure experience TEPfactor Dubai is giving What’s On Lock In guests the chance to experience a taste of what TEPfactor has to offer, with a series of challenging games to try at brunch, and at their limited-time only pop-up challenge zone inside Studio One Hotel. The first of its kind adventure experience to arrive on the shores of Dubai, TEPfactor is hours of fun guaranteed.

They’ll also be a several guest appearances throughout the weekend from the burly Spartan Race gang, who’ll challenge Lock In guests to a few impromptu fitness competitions in a bid to win prizes. We’re talking tug of war, plank challenges, burpee contests, and much more. Tackle them all, if you think you’re hard enough.

From noon, we’re throwing down four hours of food and drink feasts at The Maine Street Eatery or Larte. Spots are available on a first come first served basis, so make sure you book your seats at orientation. There’ll be games, surprises, free-flowing drinks, and a line-up of gorge-worthy food. 

The party train moves on at 4pm when everybody will conga-line it to the legendary new outpost of The Irish Village followed by Studio One Hotel’s very own contemporary Indian venue BOHO, where all Lock In guests can enjoy five free house drinks at each outlet.

Once you’re all partied out, head to your room for some well-earned shut eye. Inside each room you’ll find a very comfortable bed, modern furnishings, free WiFi, in-room yoga mat, Rocky style bathrobes and tea and coffee facilities. Oh yes, and how could we forget the range of free goodies that you’ll find sprinkled around the room just for you? Lock In guest perks are the best!


On Saturday, it’s all about the R&R. For some, that means a gentle yoga flow with Jivamukti yoga with Dina. For others it’ll mean a lazy late breakfast at Larte. Of course, you can do both!

What if you could boost your immune system, fight lethargy, and get healthier skin all in one shot? That’s what vitamin IV drips promise. Give it a go for free thanks to our pals at The Elixir Clinic. They’re serving up B12 energy booster shots and recovery VitaDrip® infusions on a first come first serve basis.
