There's a lot to see and do and a trip to Dubai, but when time isn't on your side, a little pampering can do wonders on minimising the dreaded effects of jet lag and get you back to productivity.
There's no shortage of five-star spas in Dubai (just about every hotel has one), but not many are as grand as the Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah's. With its lush landscaped gardens beside a private beach, the resorts class-leading spa doesn't look out of place.
The spa is spread out over 3,200-square metres and is designed with regal splendour in mind. Everything is made of bright, white, and marble, with warm, inviting colours. It's thoroughly modern, however, and boasts an extensive array of hydrotherapy facilities and thermal relaxation rooms.
There are almost 50 treatments to choose from, not counting the ability to customise each to your liking.
The Waldorf Astoria calls these treatments journeys, and are inspired by such exotic places as Japan, Morocco, Norway, India, Switzerland and Asia. Each makes use of rituals native to the journey's country of origin, along with traditional practice and products to make each one slightly different.
The Waldorf is also the only spa in the UAE to offer Neom treatments and products. For those not up to date with the latest in pampering news, Neom treatments use only natural fragrances and organic ingredients, to nourish your skin the way nature intended.
