Zen the Spa - tried & tested

Voya Day spa package rated

Tried & tested

The promise
The Voya Day spa package involves a body scrub, massage and mini-facial and uses only organic products from the Voya range.

Step-by-step
The treatment is divine and staff are simply lovely. Organic voya products are used throughout, which are made of essential oils and derived from the ancient seaweed baths of County Sligo in Ireland. They smell fantastic. Therapist Maricel gets to work applying the body scrub, followed by a quick rinse in the shower. We return to the bed and she applies body lotion all over our skin before starting our back massage. Next, it’s a mini-facial which starts with some cleansing, before a mask is applied and we’re given a scalp massage. Moisturiser and eye cream is gently applied to our face.

The result
The 90 minutes didn’t feel long enough – we could have laid on that bed for hours. Our skin felt super soft, even after the scrub was rinsed off, and the lathering of the body lotion was the icing on the cake.

Pros
• The products are amazing, organic, beautifully scented, and suitable for all skin types.
• The spa is very tranquil and is a great place to rejuvenate.

Cons
• It may have been coincidence, as we certainly didn’t feel any discomfort during the treatment, but we left with a bit of an ache in our calf muscle.
• The traffic in Deira is a nightmare.
