What's On to host an epic staycation and you definitely want to be there
An overnight stay at Vida Creek Harbour, a pool brunch, sundowners, treatments, fitness classes and much more for just Dh699 for two…
Every season, What’s On takes over a different hotel and hosts an entire weekend of feasts, fun, and free activities intended to give 100 lucky guests an exclusive experience unlike any other. The event: What’s On Lock In on Friday November 22 to Saturday November 23. This season’s hotel: Vida Creek Harbour, the brand new, uber-chic waterfront destination already making waves for its jaw-dropping city views.
For just Dhs699 for two people, here’s exactly what’s going down…
Friday November 22
On Friday, guests will check into Vida Creek Harbour 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 be able to get your hair braided courtesy of hip Alserkal Avenue salon Chalk, beard trims from Bristles and Mane, and make up sessions by Glowout&Go.
Also hosting a pop-up studio at What’s On Lock In is Kyra Care, where you’ll be able to get face piercings for free! And look out for our friends Lala Land who will be giving Lock In guests the chance to win some cool prizes including stationery, homewares and other colourful gifts.
From 1pm, there’ll be a laid-back poolside brunch by the Vida Creek Harbour infinity pool with platters delivered direct to your sun lounger, plus free-flowing drinks until 5pm. Don’t forget to pack your swimwear…
The party moves up one level at 5pm when everybody will make their way to the stunning Courtyard Lounge for sundowners, shisha, and chillout vibes, where Lock In guests can enjoy five free house drinks.
Feeling hungry again? Good. New concept JOMO will be on hand to dish out vegan burgers, fries and onion rings All. Night. Long.
Once you’re partied out, head to your room for some well-earned shut eye. Inside each room you’ll find a very comfortable bed, modern furnishings and free WiFi, with a panoramic view of the city.
Saturday November 23
If you partied hard on Friday, the last thing you might feel like doing is getting your gloves on for a boxing class. But you should. A little sweat session can go a long way to minimise suffering and speed the recovery process. And as UNDERDOGBOXN members ourselves, we know that #couplegoal duo Linda and Brian’s fast, furious – but fun – sweaty HIIT class works wonders. Underdog will host a special outdoor session just for Lock In guests on Saturday.
There’ll also be a glorious breakfast on the terrace for all, courtesy of Stage2 restaurant with fresh fruit, baked goods, cold cuts and cheeses, as well as one a la carte option such as eggs made to order, fritatas, Vida Benedicts, waffles or French toast.
Then, spend your last hours at Vida Creek Harbour back where it all began –sunbathing by the pool – taking in those amazing views one last time.
