Our favourite action-packed weekend is back for two days packed with brunching, sunset sessions, pampering, games, a beachside BBQ and poolside shindigs… 

Pack your bags, Lock-in crew: the What’s On Lock In is back for 2022, and headed to Ras Al Khaimah for the first time. We’ll be taking over the newly opened Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah Al Marjan Island from Saturday March 12 to Sunday March 13 for an epic weekend-long beach retreat, and bookings are open now.


‘What’s a Lock In?’ you say. Oh, only the best staycation deal in the UAE, where a mere Dhs699 brings you a weekend full of fun for you and your roomie.

You’ll enjoy early check-in, free pampering for boys and girls, a huge brunch at the cosy and contemporary Seafood Shack, party on at beach-facing RBG sports bar, and even a beach BBQ to keep the party going into the night. After a night’s rest in the hotel’s new comfy rooms, guests are treated to breakfast the next day, watersports, and a 2pm check out all thrown in too.

Is there a better staycay deal than the What’s On Lock In? That would be a hard no.

Here’s a look at the itinerary:

Saturday March 12

Your weekend kicks off with an early 11am check-in. Kicking things off in style, you’ll be welcomed with a glass of bubbly and a quick orientation session, so you can get to grips with all the fun things happening across the weekend.

The pre-game pampering is from 11am to 1pm, where the Jouri Rose SPA team will be on-hand for some relaxing express massages head and shoulder massages by the beach.

Brunch takes place at contemporary Seafood Shack restaurant from 1pm to 4pm. We’ve hooked you up with an a la carte offering served to the table: think all your favourite seafood dishes designed to share (vegetarian options are available too) and a house beverage package, which includes beers, wines, spirits and cocktails – plus a brilliant DJ set. And if your favourite flavours are a taste for adventure, our friends at TEP Factor will be back with more opportunities to flex your brain and braun.

After brunch, it’s off to beach-facing sports bar RBG, where we’ve already arranged five free drinks for you to sip on from 4pm to 6pm. Pick from a front row sunset seat on the terrace, or gather around the pub games indoors for a friendly bit of competition.

The party doesn’t stop there. In the evening, the resort is putting on a special beachside BBQ just for you, with bites from the grill, light snacks and canapés served under the twinkling tiki lights, a DJ spinning and a happy hour deal on beverages for those looking to keep the party going.

Sunday March 13

A laidback breakfast is served at all-day dining RBG Restaurant from 9am onwards.

After which, you can try your hand at some of the free, non-motorized watersports, or laze by the pool to your heart’s content. Although because it’s the Lock In, there’s a deal on pool bites and Prosecco pops from 12pm onwards: There’s a set-menu of boozy ice lollies, poolside snacks and small drinks priced at Dhs125.

Of course, the a la carte menu is available for those looking to order off the set menu. Just be sure to check out at 2pm, yeh?
