Luxe hammam at Talise Spa
As a cornerstone of the Middle Eastern beauty routine, the hammam is renowned for its deep cleansing and relaxation rituals. The Talise Spa provides its own twist on tradition with the grand 24-carat gold hammam. On a heated marble slab, guests are hand-scrubbed with a special mitt designed to revive skin cells, before being treated to a gold clay body mask that is infused with the essence of healing myrtle. A rich body massage follows using gold-infused special oils, leaving skin absolutely radiant. Don’t make plans straight after as you’ll want to make the most of the spa’s serene secret garden.

Upgraded mani-pedi at Heart & Soul
Heart & Soul in Al Barari must be one of the most relaxing spas in Dubai. Wander through its lush, manicured gardens before being seated for a manicure. The intimate nails room is popular with bridal party groups and nail services include tension-releasing massages and aromatherapy, with the Jessica GELeration polish going the distance for a full three weeks of glossy shine without chipping. Bonus: the salon is located next to locavore restaurant The Farm, so guests can enjoy a Thai-inspired green juice post-treatment.
