The best Dubai spa experiences

With more than 200 spas across Dubai, there are those offering traditional massages and treatments, while others have more unusual well-being features like rainforest rooms and thallasotherapy pools. Many people choose their hotel based on what its spa is like, or you could head out for a treat at one of the many luxury spas across the city and in the tranquil neighbouring desert oases.

Here’s our guide on where to find some of the best spa experiences in Dubai.

A spa and hotel combined

If it’s a quality hotel complete with spa that you want, so you only need roll out of bed and into the treatment room, the Doubletree by Hilton is a comprehensive resort and spa.

Its Eforea spa also has a ladies-only section, but men aren’t left out as there are treatments specifically designed for them.

There’s a glamorous indoor pool with whirlpool and large outdoor pool with cushioned loungers, where taking a dip is at a leisurely pace. The two treatment rooms mean you can have an individual or couples’ massage with views out over the open bay, plus there’s a hair salon to make sure you leave looking amazing.

Be kind to your skin

Spa Cordon is an eco-friendly Balinese retreat, whose all-natural products will appeal to those with sensitive skin, vegans and vegetarians, pregnant ladies or anyone who’s eco-conscious. Found in the commercial district, it’s a large spa with full height windows providing lots of natural light.

There’s an oriental bath using black soap and kessa scrubbing, hammam spa wet area and treatment rooms where they specialise in heat treatments. At the nail bar they, of course, use vegan nail polish containing all-natural ingredients.
