A facial at Dubai's Park Hyatt Spa in the UAE is what bliss truly means; relaxing, cleansing, soothing and rejuvenating.
The session is 90 minutes, or all day long if you'd like to arrive early and spend a full day relaxing spa style, which any treatment at The Park Hyatt Spa will let you do. This means you can lounge poolside in the sun or read a book under palm-tree shade, order a healthy salad for lunch and enjoy unlimited salt scrubs in the hot steam room. This experience can be such a tranquil day in beautiful surroundings that you might easily forget the treatment you came for! Never fear because the Spa will remember when it's time and they'll show you to your very own secluded oasis haven. This room is yours to relax in, complete with scented candles, massage table, an outdoor garden area to chill or take an outdoor shower, all for the next 90 minutes.
After selecting your choice of mood enhancing sounds, enjoy a warm flower foot soak while seated in the comfy outdoor lounge. A friendly skin specialist will closely examine your skin, give you advice for general care and then expertly begin the facial on the massage table. She will cleanse, exfoliate and do wonderful things to your face while you continue to unwind. Then out comes the electricity machine to blast your face with shock waves, and believe me it sounds worse than it really feels, promise!
Towards the end, you will be taken to heaven with a stimulating head massage. 90 minutes is a long time, but here you will want this luxury to never end, ever.
Results were seen immediately on my bad skin with the electricity waves, I would definitely recommend this treatment. And when you can take advantage of a full day at this most luxurious Spa, a facial here becomes one of the best in town for getting your money's worth.
Soft Touch Spa at The Kempinski Hotel has the best location for convenience; it's connected to Dubai's enormous Mall of the Emirates. This means after a day of exhausting wanderings through the millions of retail stores at the Mall, or snow fun and skiing slopes at Ski Dubai, you can easily unwind and relax with a rejuvenating facial or massage before even leaving the venue.
Walking into the hotel foyer of Kempinski Hotel foyer, almost directly opposite Ski Dubai, sit Dubai's elite guests who are in transit. You will take the lift up to Soft Touch Spa's secluded oasis. There is nothing to do but simply sit down and begin the unwinding process in the ‘peace room,' a haven complete with cozy beds and soothing music. Then you are escorted into a treatment room where scented candles set a tranquil mood.
I tried the blissful Ligne St Bath's facial. After an intense yet blissful cleansing, toning and moisturizing ritual using products from the luxurious St Barth's rage (made in the Caribbean and using 100% natural ingredients) I lay back to enjoy a heavenly hand massage to complete. Totally tropical pampering at it's very best!
There was a skip in my step as I left this spa feeling fabulous, blemish free and with skin that really did glow with health all week!
Chi Spa, at Shangri La hotel in Dubai, UAE, boasts a specialty Balinese massage so authentic your therapist is likely to be direct from Bali, Indonesia.
Located amidst the hustle and bustle of Sheik Zayed Road, the Balinese treatment is only one of the 90 minute massages listed on a luxurious menu of body massages and facials.
Chi Spa prides itself on drawing inspiration from ancient Asia's healing philosophies. Therapists work with Chi energy to encapsulate an authentic approach through movement, stretching, and hydrotherapy. Sound therapy is encompassed into the relaxation technique, which is something worth expecting, as the sound of a gong circling your half naked body - although beneficial with vibrating energies, may also result in a fit of the giggles, as it did with me!
I'd had an active day, so a few hours of pampering the mind and body Balinese style was not a bad idea. I easily relaxed; let my muscles and joints be manipulated by the gentle hands of a trained therapist. Delicious essential oils worked into my body's ligaments with wonderful ritualistic steps. Music enveloped a sensation of soothing and helped transport my mind to a tropical beach in Bali.
Staff were gracious and encouraged me to take extra time before the treatment by indulging in the spa's three temperature pools, steam room, sauna and sipping from an abundance of healthy ginger tea, great for the digestive.
All facilities are available to help return to ‘the real world.' Shower, dressing gown, luxe moisturizers, shampoo and conditioners, hair dryer and comb are at the disposal of every client. I emerged completely relaxed with energy centers re-balanced and a healthier feeling from the inside.
Valet parking is available.
Set in a romantic boutique hotel on the shores of Byron Bay, you'd be forgiven for mistaking the exclusive in-house Spa at Rae's on Watego's for a golden lair discreetly nestled at the base of this pink 1960s establishment. With the arched wooden doors wide open and the gold mosaic corridor shimmering, it's hard to resist a closer look let alone eyeing off the spa menu. But once the doors are shut, and work is in progress, you'd have no idea it was even there.
Purveying the same sense of intimacy and privacy one comes to expect fromRae's on Watego's, offering an exclusive mix of three penthouses, two suites and a villa, you can relax assured of impeccable service and high-quality care. Featuring a Vichy room, steam room, and two treatment rooms that also open as a couples room, the space remains perfectly intimate, quiet and soothing. Far from simply actioning the movements, treatments are intuitive, engaging 100% of the therapist's attention. No phones ringing down the hall. No other therapists peeping their heads around the door.
Get the celebrity treatment
Offering massage treatments, skin care therapies, body treatments and nurturing spa rituals, the Spa menu comes celebrity-tested. With a long list of celebrity clients, the small team of therapists are of the highest calibre. Using La Gaia formulations with Naturaceuticals, a range scientifically devised and derived from nature, as well as the occasional product from Spanish line Germaine de Capuccini, quality and results collide.
From busy to bliss
Personally, I'm one of those clients who can only start to relax about ten minutes from the end, at which point I simultaneously begin to panic because I know the end is nigh. I think too much. Even if it's just about the lovely, sweet aromas filling the room, my mind races at any chance. But somehow in the hands of Marionne de Candia, known as a 'celebrity facialist' in the spa world, my brain lapsed into nothingness. All thoughts melted in 10 minutes flat, leaving my hyper-sensitive brain in a deep slumber that took nearly four hours to emerge from afterwards. This truly is a bliss unlike any other.
