We round up a select few massages, treatments, and spa and beach deals to help you unwind over the upcoming Eid holidays. Give yourself a treat, you deserve it.
Eid al-Fitr sees the return to routine pampering in Dubai, and there are a host of special deals only available during this four-day holiday period. Here, we reveal our pick of the city’s best Eid deals.
Fire & Ice and All Things Nice at The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai
A feast for the senses, this hot and cold stone massage has been created with the summer heat in mind and involves the use of warm oils and hot and ice-cold temperatures. It all begins with a refreshing foot cleanse before the therapist prepares each area of the body with oil and then uses hot stones to loosen muscles, followed by ice cold stones for a cool (and slightly alarming) hit. Try this if you’re bored with run-of-the-mill massages.
Dhs700 for 90 minutes. The Walk, JBR (04 318 6521).
Summer package at Akaru Spa
Enjoy two hours of luxurious pampering and then relax with a fruit platter and fruit shooter. This package includes either the taster Pevonia or Guinot facials, an eye treatment of your choice, a full-body scrub followed by a jet lag reviver massage or foot massage. It’s rounded off with an oxy spa, where you can doze off in an oxygen capsule while listening to calming music.
