Lily Pond Spa
This Thai pampering haven has two branches in Dubai Marina, where it frequently runs brilliant deals on treatments. That said, if you’re always a bit strapped for cash, Lily Pond is accessibly priced compared to many places in the city – a manicure, for example, will set you back Dhs50 and 60-minute Balinese massages are Dhs180.
Ladies only. Rimal, JBR (04 435 5780); Amwaj, JBR (04 439 1717).

A spacious hairdressing salon for men and women run by Syrian Rami Jabali, who’s one of the most proficient colourists we’ve found in the city. There’s also free parking available for customers.
