What's On Lock In best bits: Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island
What a weekend it was…
Every few months we like to invite our readers for, what we consider to be, the best staycation deal in the UAE. We choose the hotel, bring along some cool activations, arrange a delicious brunch, breakfast, and more. This time, we partnered with the fantastic Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island in Ras al Khaimah for a weekend of pure bliss.
Our guests arrived on Saturday, October 1 to check-in with a bunch of exciting activities to get them feeling weekend ready. First off, there was a morning yoga class from Rafa to get our guests feeling zen, followed by TEPfactor’s mind-boggling puzzles, and a quick massage at Citrine Spa. Guests shopped handmade luxury beachwear from Djulee’s and stocked up on organic healthy goodies from Delmonte. It was here that guests could also sign up for water sports and spa treatments ahead of the weekend.
After a quick freshen up, we reconvened at Boons for an afternoon brunch. The buffet-style brunch was immaculate and effortlessly catered to everyone’s tastes from seafood to a live bbq, crêperie to a cheese counter, washed down with a cocktail or two from the many drinks stations. We ate well, laughed well, and danced well before heading upstairs for sundowners and the afterparty at Neo Sky Bar.
And that’s not all. We ended the night in the comfort of our plush guest rooms, woke up to endless sea views, and headed to a bottomless breakfast at boho beach club ULA. ARTfem set up inside the restaurant for a morning art session, where our surprisingly-artistic guests painted their own masterpieces on a canvas. With those views, it was hard not to feel inspired.
Even though we nabbed a late check-out, we could have sunbathed by that pool all day. Needless to say, we really did not want to leave.
If you missed out on this Lock In, make sure you stay tuned as we will be announcing the next one soon.
