HOW LONG: 75 minutes
HOW MUCH: QR330
THE TREATMENT: Experts recommend a monthly power-pedi to keep those dancing feet in tip-top condition and this is the best pedicure we could find in Qatar. After a very thorough pumice buffing (it’s amazing the amount of dead skin that comes away), the cuticles around the toe nails are softened and the excess is removed. A hot rosemary salt scrub is then applied to make your feet feel as smooth as baby’s – well, almost. A fragrant orange body butter is then applied up to the knee and a paraffin wax mask is applied to both feet.
THE RESULTS: The warm wax mask is the grown-up, far more glamorous equivalent of playing in lovely squelchy mud. It’s so soothing and you'll definitely want to play footsie with your other half (or even yourself!) afterwards. Plus, the Bliss salon – as we’ve mentioned here before – is special, with uber comfy seats and individual TVs with headphones so each guest can watch their own choice of channel. Love it!
