Here’s why you need to be at this fitness-focused weekend retreat


Sponsored: Celebrity workouts, killer parties and top quality cuisine – FUEL weekend by W Hotels is where you need to be this April…

Is your idea of a brilliant weekend Barry’s Bootcamp by the beach, cranking up the volume at a CRANK class in the afternoon and partying into the night at a new city hotspot? Then FUEL, the W Hotels weekend fitness retreat is for you – and it’s coming to the newest W Escape for the first time from April 11 to 14.

Promising top workouts and dishes from the resorts signature restaurants, FUEL weekend will see some of the city’s top fitness classes and experts come together at the stunning new W Dubai – The Palm.

So, what’s included?


Well, you’ll get a three night stay at the luxe new hotel on the Palm, with a daily breakfast served in LIV. Each day you’ll be able to take part in a variety of workouts, spin or boxing classes before lunch at one of the resort restaurants, or Palm Sugar Brunch on Friday at the WET Deck.

In the afternoon, you’ll have some free time to explore the resort, before heading back to class for stretching or yoga, ahead of kicking off the evening with a reception at the glittering Akira Back rooftop restaurant.

In the evenings, there will be a group dinner at Torno Subito, Massimo Bottura’s first restaurant outside Italy. The party keeps going late into the night with the ‘ultimate house party’ taking place at a secret location within the hotel, and a DJ spinning floor-filling hits until the early hours.

As well as brilliant memories from the weekend, you’ll be given a special gift bag to take away too.

Can’t make it to the April event? Stay tuned as FUEL will land at the soon-to-open W Muscat in October.
