Friday brunch with free pool access

Make a day out of Friday brunch by enjoying the delicious spread at Thyme, before taking advantage of the Oasis Beach Tower’s luxe swimming pool for the day. Yes, pool access is included in your brunch package, so after you’ve finished dining on delicious Mediterranean treats, you can hit the pool for a sun bathing and swimming session – waiting the traditional 45 minutes after you dine, natch. Cost Dh140 or Dh280 for the all inclusive house beverage package.

Time to get Sceired again!

When the Jumeirah Sceirah was closed back in January, it felt like a little bit of Dubai’s thrill factor had disappeared. But we can now reveal that Wild Wadi is opening a brand new ride for adrenaline junkies to scream their way down this week (on September 4), and it’s a reinvented and wilder Jumeriah Sceirah. The strictly-no-chickensallowed ride will have thrill-seekers positioned behind a trap door that they will then shoot through, unable to see what lies beyond – which just so happens to be a 120m-long, 32mhigh ride that has you travelling at speeds of 80kph. Yikes! Cost Dh220.

Wardrobe Swapping

Here at  we’re all  ‘blessed’ with the can’t-part-with-clothes gene, making wardrobe clear-outs one of the most painful things ever. Well, that was until we discovered My Ex Wardrobe, which seamlessly ties in wardrobe declutter sessions with a good browse and buy of other people’s gorgeous pre-loved accessories and clothes. And, if you’re one of the first 50 people to arrive, you’ll walk way with an exclusive My Ex Wardrobe gift bag, meaning you pick up goodies before you even start rummaging. Now we just need to convince ourselves it’s time for that dress we haven’t worn in three years to go... 
Cost Free entry.
