It’s a long old summer, and the hot weather and humidity do nothing to help our poor old skin. And can you imagine the damage that long days hunched over our desks do to our backs?
Enough said. A massage is in order, and if you’re going to have a spa treatment you may as well make it a nice one. Look no further.
We headed down to the Amara Spa at The Park Hyatt to check out one of their summer promotions, the grandly titled Summer Ceremony.
The ceremony, and grand it is, starts as your therapist bathes your hands and feet in a bowl of water and rose petals, heaven after a long week at work.
Next, is a sweet sugar body polish, to remove all that nasty dead skin and reveal the new you, after a rinse in the beautiful outdoor rain shower.
Finally, comes the divine full body massage. Your therapist will be as firm or as gentle as you like, just let them know how knotted up you’re feeling, and they’ll fix it.
And if your treatment wasn’t lovely enough, sit back and enjoy a spa lunch by the pool and enjoy the fabulous facilities.
For an overall spa package, this is one of the best you’ll find in Dubai.
The Amara Summer Ceremony is Dhs790 for 1.5 hours and includes full-day use of the 25-metre swimming pool as well as the four whirlpools, the fragranced steam room, the lounges and the gymnasium. Call 04 602 1234 to book.
