The Spa at Palace Downtown

Think elegance, muted earth tones, inviting furnishings and Arabesque patterns when you consider a day out at The Spa, located at the regal Palace Downtown. Treatments at this wellbeing haven make the most of premium and organic beauty brands, such as Natura Bisse and Les Sens de Marrakech. Try the 90-minute Karak Chai Adventure, priced at AED850, which channels Emirati tradition in a novel manner by utilising black tea leaves and saffron, as well as camel milk followed by a blissful signature massage. Afterwards, relax in the comfort of an outdoor cabana overlooking the Burj Lake.

Amara Spa at Park Hyatt

Massage Room at Amara Spa Dubai Massage in Dubai

Tucked away in the heart of Deira, by the Dubai Creek Golf Club, Park Hyatt Dubai is one of the most picturesque resorts in the city. Located in this serene location, the Amara Spa is equally picture-perfect. Walk past Moorish arches, billowing curtains and a stunning pool surrounded by palms, before exploring the jewel-inspired spa menu of treatments themed around ancient healing benefits. One of the highlights is undoubtedly the Amara Massage – the spa’s signature warm oil massage infused with frankincense, sandalwood and amber, with prices from AED600.

Unwind at Talise Spa, a true holistic wellness destination in the city. The spa is housed within the chic Madinat Jumeirah complex, inspired by ancient Arabian-style architecture. Let trickling fountains, paved pathways across landscaped gardens, and chirping birds transport you into a lush haven. With independent hotel room-sized treatment rooms, this is the ideal place to escape. Try the aptly-named Serenity Ritual at AED1,250 which serves up two hours of bliss using Australian healing stones.

You'll leave renewed and radiant.

Anantara Spa at Anantara The Palm

Housed in a cluster of Thai-style pagodas, surrounded by water, frangipani trees, bamboo and chirping birds, Anantara Spa is evocative of an island escape.

Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is an opulent Anatolian-inspired resort on Palm Jumeirah, and within its palatial grounds sits the Talise Ottoman Spa. Set in its own building at the complex, the award-winning spa is home to a spectacular hammam that is easily one of the most popular in the city. The one-hour Royal Ottoman Hammam for AED730 gives the age-old Turkish bathing tradition a luxurious makeover. Specialists use herbal concoctions and kesse mitts to exfoliate, massage, shampoo and wash hair and body to baby-like softness.

Saray Spa at JW Marriott Marquis

Spread across an entire floor at one of the world's tallest hotels, Saray Spa pays tribute to the caravanserai tradition of the Silk Route. Explore Arabesque flourishes at every turn, intricate impressions and a tempting menu featuring ancient treatments that make use of local remedies. The crowning jewel is the Dead Sea floatation pool, filled with healing salts from Jordan. Embark on the two-hour Saray Signature Dead Sea Journey at AED1,050, which includes an energising scrub, full body mask, a floatation session in your own private heated pool, and a nourishing body oil massage.
