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.

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.

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 […]
