Ananatara Spa at Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa, Abu Dhabi, by Anantara

A laid-back, Thai-inspired spa with calming views across the mangroves

Ananatara Spa at Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa, Abu Dhabi, by Anantara

If we were to draw up a blueprint of what our ideal spa would look like, it would be something like this. A blend of ancient rituals and modern wellness theory packaged up in an attractive, low-rise water’s edge resort. Of course it helps to have the mangroves view. As one of the few spas to advertise the amount of pressure applied on treatments (from light to firm) you know what you are letting yourself in for. On the more indulgent edge of the spectrum are journeys such as the Essence of Thailand (herbal compress and an Oriental foot reviver) or the Arabian Dynasty (60 minutes in the royal Ottoman hammam, 90-minute signature massage and a 60-minute Elemis facial). Vichy treatments are also available, if you’re particular about your skincare regime.
Open daily 10am-midnight. Eastern Mangroves  Hotel and Spa by Anantara, Al Salam Street, Abu Dhabi (02 656 1146).
