Get your nails done We can’t better think of a better way to while away the waiting time than to tend to those talons. Be Relax offer express manicures (Dhs90, 15 mins) and pedicures (Dhs150, 20 mins) if time is of the essence, or you can enjoy the extras (like a good pumicing of the feet) if you have more leisure time to spare.
Iron out the creaks We’re not on about your attire here, we’re talking about you. Book yourself in for an invigorating massage to loosen out those knots and completely unwind before you jet off. The signature chair massage starts at Dhs105 for ten minutes and is a deep massage that uses acupressure techniques to stimulate tense spots and bring you to a supreme state of relaxation.
Put your best face forward The clever folks at Be Relax have devised anti-jetlag facials to prevent post-flight puffiness through the means of an anti-fatigue face mask. The customised facial uses Dermalogica products in order to achieve newly revitalised skin that feels refreshed and radiant. The facials start at Dhs205 for a 20-minute treatment. Lather us up.
Remove unwanted fuzz You read that right. The spa even offers waxing services, if you’re in need of a spruce up before touching down. Treatments include everything from eyebrow waxing (Dhs90), to legs (Dhs85), to the full back wax (Dhs220).
Try a new do You can even get your hair done at the Be Relax spa, with everything from wash and cuts (Dhs220), to hair-straightening (Dhs130) and blow-dries (Dhs160). Men can head here for a snip as well, with a haircut (Dhs180) or a beard trim (Dhs70). Children’s haircuts (Dhs90) are also available. Just make sure you don’t doze off on the plane and ruin your newly coiffed barnet. Prices vary. Terminal 1, Concourse D; Terminal 3, Concourse A, B & C, www.berelax.com (04 250 0524).
