This week we wake up to an Arabian Coffee ritual and check out just a few of the romantic spa specials coming up.
February is here! And it’s time to snap out of your January stupor, wake up and smell the coffee – literally, in the case of Saray Spa’s (04 317 7777) February special. The Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf’s in-house pampering haven is offering a free 30-minute facial with every Arabian Coffee Awakener treatment, which includes a body scrub, Dead Sea mud body mask and a relaxing full-body massage. And all for Dhs565.
This week is also your last chance to make the most of ladies’ only De La Mer Day Spa’s (04 328 2775) weekday special. The Jumeirah Beach Road outlet is offering a 25 percent discount on bookings for Shellac manicure with classic pedicure on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays until February 12.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the city’s spas have gone stark-raving romance bonkers for all that is red, ravishing and strewn in rose petals. So Spa at Sofitel The Palm (04 455 6600) is offering a number of packages for couples, which all include a complimentary glass of sparkling date juice, fruit skewers and melted dipping chocolate, a Patchi chocolate surprise and a red rose, in addition to the treatment (massage and scrub, or massage and private Jacuzzi), for Dhs1,500 per couple. But if you loathe the idea of a couple’s massage, treat them to a bit of alone time instead – the stunning Ahasees Spa (04 317 2333) at the Grand Hyatt’s gift certificates could be just the ticket.
Until next week, namaste.
