Pamper Yourself in Dubai

Special occasion pampering: Take your pick

Finally, that long awaited break is here. And it’s time for some his and her pampering. Reserve a table at the best restaurant in town (view mandatory) and start the countdown to the perfect day.

Hammam

Talise Ottoman Spa
The cornerstone of the Middle Eastern beauty routine, the hammam is renowned for its deep cleansing and relaxation rituals. Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has created a steamy sanctuary in its Talise Ottoman Spa. On a heated marble slab beneath a domed stained glass window, guests are hand-scrubbed with African black soap before being treated to a honey face and hair mask, followed by a rich Moroccan rose body butter massage. The private Iklik hammam dedicates an entire floor of the spa to one couple, offering a private hammam slab, sauna, whirlpool and imperial majlis, the traditional Turkish-style relaxation lounge.

Facials

Zo Skin Centre
More a dedicated treatment centre than a pipe music and tinkling water feature spa, Zo Skin Centre specialises in solving skin emergencies. In-house facialists have cracked the code to healing breakouts and soothing stressed skin overnight, using treatments based in “cosmoceutical” science from Obagi. Even low maintenance brides and grooms can benefit from a quick tune-up, with oxygenating facials decongesting weary complexions. Those flying in for the Big Day should try their lymphatic node massages, which address legs and arms that have puffed up in flight.

Nails

Heart & Soul
Heart & Soul in Al Barari must be one of the most relaxing spas in Dubai. Wander through its lush, manicured gardens before being seated for a mani. The intimate nails room is popular with bridal party groups after some pre-wedding treatments. Nail services include tension-releasing massage, exfoliation and aromatherapy, with the Jessica GELeration polish going the distance for a full three weeks of glossy shine. Bonus: the salon is located next to locavore restaurant The Farm, so guests can enjoy a Thai-inspired green juice post-mani.

Barber

Hommage Atelier
Specialising in male grooming, smoking lounge-inspired salon Hommage Atelier is the go-to barber for Dubai’s best-kept facial hair. The Financial District salon shapes and smooths bespoke beards, scrubs and squares off nails, and can also indulge those with a little less up-top with a “dome-polishing” treatment. Each service comes with a shoe shine and hand massage so you’re left glowing from top to toe.

Hair styling

The Loft Fifth Avenue
Known for their dedication to I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-natural highlighting and lowlighting techniques, the experienced international team and service at The Loft Fifth Avenue offer a much needed reprieve from the bustle of its The Dubai Mall location. Bouncy blowdries are included with all hair colouring services. Dubai’s glamazons and visiting Saudi celebs are known to pop by for a braided up-do before making an entrance at one of Downtown Dubai’s hotspots.
