Dubai the Ultimate Place to Unwind

Dubai SpaDubai is fast becoming the world’s number one spa destination. Like the hotels they occupy, Dubai’s spas offer their guests true Arabian hospitality and the ultimate in luxury pampering.

Dubai’s residents and visitors alike are spoilt for choice with the variety of settings, themes, styles and treatments available. Influences are drawn from both the East and West, with spa themes including traditional Egyptian and Thai, and ultra-contemporary. Treatments are equally international in their influences, with specialists practicing techniques from Bali, Sweden, Thailand, China and beyond.

Dubai’s commitment to service, style and luxury are echoed in its spas with modern, elegantly designed, spacious facilities. Many spas offer designated areas for men and women and treatments with well-known international brands, while others focus on traditional Arabian ingredients.

The popular local treatment, Rasul, is a detoxifying mud treatment that purifies and relaxes the body as it is cleansed. Other treatments include Balinese and stone massage, hydrotherapy, Moroccan Hammam and body wraps, Ayurvedic treatments, thalassotherapy, Ionthermie and phytotherapy.

As well as super-luxury facilities, there are more affordable, yet equally delightful options, such as the spa at JA Ocean View Hotel. There’s something for every taste and budget, if you want a spa by the beach, in the city or even in the middle of the desert, Dubai has it.
