Time Out samples two of the city’s couple’s treatments, offering perfect pampering in the run-up to Valentine’s Day
Real aromatherapy experience
The spa:The Address Dubai Mall’s spa has nine treatment rooms, steam rooms and sauna, hydrotherapy facilities, a hair studio and relaxation areas – but we personally loved the large changing room, and spent a leisurely time getting changed afterwards.
Step by step: After a thorough brief and rumination over which of the 12 oils we preferred (we decided on those to help balance hormones and eradicate stress – they smelled the nicest), we both lay back and enjoyed the medium-strength massage. The music was soft and the treatment was so relaxing we struggled to stay conscious. Afterwards we took our time with a cup of tea in the relaxation area.
Pros • The service is top-notch – friendly and considerate – and the massage extremely calming.
