1. ShuiQi Spa
What: Pamper Me Package
If you’re looking for an extra special way to while away an afternoon, we highly recommend Atlantis’ latest package. Yes it’s a spa treatment, but it’s so much more than that with lunch and all-day pool access thrown in, too! Start your day with a 60-minute massage (you can choose between stress-busting Swedish or relaxing Balinese) followed by a 30-minute ESPA personalised facial, tailored to your specific skin needs. Once you’ve been preened and pampered, head on over to Nasimi beach to enjoy a three course lunch with amazing views of the Dubai skyline. Team Ahlan! were feeling healthy when we visited so we chowed down on burrata to start (natch), grilled salmon and veggies for main followed by a fruit platter for lunch, but there’s everything from salads and grilled meats to pizza and pasta. End the afternoon and embrace your food coma by grabbing a sunbed at one of the many pools where you can catch some rays before heading home. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
INFO: 10am-10pm daily until the end of July, Dhs550 Sun to Thurs, Dhs650 Fri to Sat, Atlantis The Palm, 04 426 1698, atlantisthepalm.com
