Last week, I was invited to try out one of the treatments in Saray Spa.
Funnily enough this is one of the few spas that I have actually been to a few times before. So, you can say that my write-up is definitely a fair one, as I’ve always had high regards of its staff and service 🙂
Sunday 20th July
Thank goodness for Ramadan hours I left at 4pm to rush over to Dubai Marriott Harbour & Suites just 15 minutes before my appointment at 5pm. As I had previously tried the Milk & Honey, as well as the Arabic Coffee Awakener (plus the facials…), I opted for something new, the Saray Hammam.
It was great to see Eve again, and this time Julie was my therapist for the evening 🙂
The Saray Spa Hammam is a 75minutes treatment, of which the ritual begins with a light body massage using laurel and olive oil soap to loosen tired muscles. Next is, as Saray Spa puts it ” an unforgettable skin stimulating experience ” using a Keese to gently remove dead skin cells. It’s been a long time since I went for a proper full body exfoliate treatmet so I told Julie to just put the pressure on, haha 😉
When that is done, you wash off in the ensuite shower, dry up and then lay back on the treatment bed. Julie then proceeds with a full body massage using sandalwood massage oil. She was initially a little too soft so I prompted for more pressure which she did, and at the right spots 🙂
Happy patron, once again.
It’s been awhile since I had been back to Saray Spa, a bit gutted that they’ve reduce the regular member discount from 50% to 25% only which was the main reason of my absence. Compared to a lot of high-end hotels in Dubai, the treatment prices are quite reasonable. Saray Hammam is 330AED, the Milk&Honey/Arabic Coffee Awakeners are 400AED. Good thing is we’ve got the Entertainer Body book now and there are 2 for 1 deals in there (as well as a whole lot of othe spas!), so I’ll be back 🙂
If you live close to the Marriott in the marina and you’ve never tried out the spa, I do suggest you pop by and check it out 😉 Mind you the facilities are basic and it’s not one of those flashy big hotels (like its sister hotel the Marriott Marquis) but, the therapists are great and if your aim is to get a good treatment that’s not overly expensive, you’ll get it here.
