1

Luxury skincare at its best

The Guerlain Spa at One&Only, The Palm is the one and only spot in the country where you can experience the luxury brand's speciality treatments. In addition to its original Parisian menu, the spa has developed three exclusive signature treatments that blend Guerlain's French know-how with the region's rich history of skincare. Book in for the Solar Evasion treatment, which uses a combination of smoothing exfoliation and massage techniques to prepare skin for a longer-lasting holiday tan.

2

Afternoon tea, Arabian style

Looking for an indulgent afternoon tea? Jumeirah Al Qasr has an Arabesque variation that puts the focus on fresh, fancy treats that reflect a strong sense of place. Savour out-of-the-ordinary servings such as strawberry kunafa mille-feuille and apricot orange blossom soufflé, as you admire the views of Madinat Jumeirah’s winding waterways from the hotel's chic Al Fayrooz Lounge. It’s a wonderful setting for couples or to simply catch up with friends in the sunshine.

Underwater-inspired yoga

Underwater Yoga at Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis

Stretch out with the fish at this one-of-a-kind fitness class. In the heart of The Lost Chambers Aquarium, you'll be led by one of Atlantis, The Palm's expert yoga instructors through positions that are slightly adjusted to mimic the movements of the 65,000 fish, rays and sharks that surround the glass-panelled room – yes, there will be a seahorse pose! An hour of sun salutations and downward dog-fishes is finished off with mindful meditation. Classes take place multiple times a week, but bookings are essential.

4

Detox at Palm Jumeirah

The Retreat Palm Dubai presents a tranquil setting to hit reset with lapping waves and seaside views. The region’s first holistic resort offers a host of customised packages that balance body, mind and soul. Choose from a one day reset to a two-week overhaul, with treatments taking place at serene locations across the resort. There are plenty of nutrition-focused meals, spa treatments, meditation and alternative healing to get your relaxed in no time.
