We all like to pamper ourselves once in a while, but sometimes a classic massage just doesn’t cut it. Lucky for us, Dubai is where gold and diamonds also translate into skincare and we have selected the most dazzling therapies for you to try over the long weekend.
Whether you’re looking for full body indulgence or a facial fit for a queen, here are some of the most luxurious spa treatments in Dubai.
JUMEIRAH ZABEEL SARAY
Gold facial – 60 minutes
In collaboration with Margy’s Monte Carlo, experience pure gold on your face. And we don’t mean figuratively. The treatment involves a 24 carat gold chain mail mask which aims to slow down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin. Here is a quick science part, gold conducts ions which stimulate cellular growth of the basal layer, regenerating firm skin cells and providing a tightening effect. To make this AED25,000 worth every dirham, it also includes revitalizing Arabian gold Hammam and a Rose Bliss and Argan oil massage followed by skin softening milk and rose oil jacuzzi bath. And if that doesn’t make you feel like royalty, enjoy a glass of bubbly and caviar lunch held within your own private spa suite.
