A true holistic wellness destination in the city, Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah
is housed in an independent sprawling complex built in the same wind tower style of architecture that the rest of the luxury resort features. Inside, 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 for the 2.5-hour Day Retreat (AED1,395). This includes a bespoke full-body massage, facial and a body scrub, tail-ended by a healthy snack from the spa cuisine menu. For the ultimate spa experience, book a massage in a beach cabana, where skilled therapists will work their magic while ocean breezes lull you into a state of bliss. Talise Spa also offers yoga, including the popular full-moon beach sessions.
