Aching for a massage as it had been months since we went for one – we started hunting around for an offer online. The husband found one on Groupon – it was 359 AED for 60-minutes – for two people. A bit of googling and we found that the spa – called Oaks Spa – […]

Exclusive Summer Relaxation @ One&Only The Palm Dubai

Have you ever been to the One&Only at the Palm? Did you know that there are rabbits running freely in their gardens? I know I share a lot about these rabbits and even wrote a piece. I also know the rabbits have absolutely nothing to do with this experience – but honestly, a 60-minute massage […]

Sultan’s Massage @ Talise Ottoman Spa, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

I literally could not find my way back down after having my tea and that customary post-massage snack all spas in Dubai provide – dates, apricots and peanuts. I walked out of the relaxation room and turned, and turned, and turned. And then realised I was back at where I started. Maybe I’ve had too […]

Bastien’s Pedicure @ One and Only The Palm

I had initially thought that Bastien Gonzalez would just be dropping by for a chat during the treatment. So when he popped in with a smile – explained that it was going to be done by he himself – I was thinking to myself – o noooo. Maybe I should have gone to one of […]

The Rainforest Experience @ Ritz Carlton Al Wadi Desert RAK

I remember reading about the Rainforest Experience a few years ago when the property was still under the Banyan Tree brand. I also remember driving to the entrance four years ago, on the way home from RAK, hoping to have a bite but were politely turned away as entry was only available to in-house guests. […]

An entire afternoon spent @ So Spa, Sofitel The Palm

So if you want to bring your mum to one spa during her trip to Dubai, or your sister, or a good friend – I highly recommend So Spa. Such beautiful interiors, and it’s huuuuge – a whole ‘2500m2’ according to their website blurp. I’ve been to so many spas during our time here in […]

Spa and Pool Day @ Habtoor Grand Resort Dubai

So… it’s been a long time since we’ve been to a couples spa treatment. My neck and back has been aching since no.2 came along. I gave the Entertainer App a try, then went onto Cobone… and found this. 60 minutes spa treatment, plus pool and beach access for AED 229. That’s AED 460 for the […]

Massage Date @ Shine Spa, Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai

Early last week, mum and I booked ourselves into a massage date at Shine Spa in the Sheraton Grand Hotel, on Sheikh Zayed Road, giving daddy the chance to babysit (and Little S slept right through the afternoon.. 🙂 ). If you didn’t know ( I didn’t..), all the spas under the Sheraton are called […]

Real Nurturing Experience @ The Spa, The Address Dubai Marina

Few days ago I was not well, came home after work and was laying in bed, resting. My nose was running, my throat was sore, and my body ached 🙁 I started going through all the 241s in my HSBC Entertainer and couldn’t find a single massage suitable for my ‘current state’ i.e pregnant. O […]

An ‘Eastern Renewal’ @ Sensasia Urban & Spa, The Village

Few weeks ago when I had a short break back in Dubai in between my work stint, I grabbed the opportunity to do a massage treatment in Sensasia The Village, as part of an invite. I had been to the same spa, based in Downtown Dubai before on my own account, and it was a […]

Bespoke Massage @ Waldorf Spa, The Palm Dubai

And to end a busy week of work (no Ramadan hours for me…) – what better way than to complete it with another spa date in the palm – a lil visit to Waldorf Spa 😉 Few weeks ago we did a little digging around in my girlfriend’s Entertainer Body app and decided on the […]

Hydrating Body Treatment @ Saray Spa, Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel

Writing about your experience at a spa treatment is not easy. With food you can take a lot of pretty photos, from this angle, that angle, aerial view, macro shot, and it makes your blog post looks very….. interesting. It makes you hungry 🙂 When it comes to spas, unless you’re quite happy to display […]

Couples Massage @ Mist Spa, Jumeirah

Hmm. You know when you buy these groupon/cobone deals and it’s really cheap and you’re not sure if it’s good or not, so you yadig.com it and find mixed reviews so you think you’ll just give it a shot? Yeah, that’s what we did 🙂 Look, G liked it. I’m a lot more critical when […]

Hydrafacial @ Beverly Hills Aesthetic and Medical Centre

When I first got the invite to the launch, I was a bit sceptical of turning up….. worried that someone from work would see me walking into something with the words “Beverly Hills” and “Aesthetic” in Jumeirah, haha. Oooo, is she getting a nose job? Boob job? 😉 But I thought, hey, let’s check out […]

Phytoceane Facial @ Kalm Holistic Spa

No pretty photos, just a short review, for those who have shit skin and would like someone to fix it for you 🙂 I’ve been to a few facials around Dubai (Cleopatra, Bloomingdales’ Elemis, Saray, Sanctuary to name a few)…. most do not offer extraction as they reckon it’s not good for your skin. I’ve […]

The Saray Hammam @ Saray Spa

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 […]

My Kalm love affair in The Palm

Guilty. I stole the photo above from Google 😀 I know I took a coupla photos during the initial stages of my relationship with Kalm but that was probably more than a year ago now, so I’m not too sure where it is. And why let that stop me from writing my lil story 😉
