5 UAE Spas To Try This Summer
TALISE SPA, JUMEIRAH AL NASEEM
Situated in the bustling Madinat Jumeirah, Talise Spa is an ideal detox destination. Have some much-needed ‘me time’ with a leisurely stroll along 2km of private beach before heading to the spa to enjoy an outdoor massage in the Secret Garden. If you want to feel really Zen, why not book yourself into a full-Moon yoga session? It’s a great way to undo any inevitable naughtiness you may have imbibed at brunch.

Focusing on things such as sun damage, wrinkles and texture, your skin will then receive tailored treatments designed to tackle problem areas directly. Afterwards you will be treated to an Express Hydrafacial. This deeply cleansing treatment aims to rejuvenate while anti-ageing facial pressure points are stimulated to help reduce signs of ageing. To finish? A luxurious scalp massage.

Using ingredients found in nature, the Top-to-Toe Spa Detox Ritual at The Spa is a lush way to reset the body and mind. Ideal if you’ve overindulged during the week. The treatment begins with a full body polish using Dead Sea Salts to reinvigorate the circulation. The body is then wrapped in fresh seaweed while hot stones are used during a drainage massage to slim and tighten the body. To finish, a glow-reviving pro-youth facial using oceanic vitamins and minerals will help make you feel alive again.
