A high-end London spa brand opening in Dubai and ‘Skinny Beach’ sessions
London’s high-end The Organic Pharmacy is set to open its flagship store in Dubai this coming May. Best known for its herbal and homeopathic products, urban day spa and clinic, the store and spa will be housed in the new Wasl Vita Mall, which recently opened in Jumeirah. For more information on the chain ahead of its Dubai opening, visit www.theorganicpharmacy.com.
Elsewhere, Chrysalis Spa (04 370 0777) in Downtown Dubai is offering a special, holistic cocooning experience, available only until the end of this month. The lavender dreams experience is designed to have a calming, balancing effect, and includes a full-body exfoliation, neck and shoulder massage with hot stones and a mini facial, before you’re wrapped in a cocoon to enjoy a pressure point scalp massage. And you get all that for just Dhs400.
Dimply skin getting you down? Try SensAsia Urban Spa’s (www.sensasiaspas.com) new Skinny Beach body smoothing sessions. Described as the ultimate ‘inch-loss experience’, the Dhs1,200 package includes a Shrinking Violet body-brushing and full-body wrap, plus either a hot salt and pepper polish or a 60-minute facial. Bit pricey for your mid-month budget? There’s also the option to go with just a Shrinking Violet treatment, priced at Dhs730 for 90 minutes. Not cheap, admittedly, but it might just be the pre-beach treat your body deserves this month.
