Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort unveils delightful spa upgrades

The ultra-luxurious Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort has shed light on its newly expanded, Asian-inspired spa facility; a facility that is fully equipped to meet the dreams and desires of any spa enthusiast. 

The two-tier spa has recently re-opened with an additional six treatment rooms, bringing the total to 24, and has incorporated brand new male, female and couples’ hammam facilities into its portfolio.  

The spa retreat’s ground floor offers access to six single treatment rooms with showers, two beauty rooms, a Thai massage suite, a holistic cocoon room, an Ayurveda suite and three couples’ suites, each of which feature a luxurious Serali steam bath, experience showers and an infinity solo pool bath.

Meanwhile, on the first floor, the number of single treatment rooms has doubled to eight, along with the addition of two new 34m2 couples’ massage rooms with a built in sauna, showers and whirlpool featuring Microsilk technology.

The sparkling new Turkish-style hammam offers the option of separate male and female facilities, as well as relaxation areas, changing rooms, adedicated couples’ hammam, a reception and a boutique where guests are granted the opportunity to take their favourite spa products home with them. 

Jean-Francois Laurent, general manager, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort commented on the upgrade: “We are the first spa in the region to introduce Microsilk technology, the bathing experience beauty experts are calling ‘the Fountain of Youth’.  Guests will have the option to upgrade their hammam experience and enjoy the oxygen-rich micro-bubble bath, which is a patented process that supersaturates the water with billions of bubbles, raising oxygen levels up to 70 per cent higher than common tap water, increasing metabolism and promoting the growth of skin cells.” 

Those paying a visit to the refreshed Anantara Spa can now select from a variety of over 30 treatments spanning wellness therapies from Asia to the Middle East, as well as traditional hammam rituals, body and Ayurvedic treatments and results-oriented facials. (Each Turkish hammam treatment includes an Anantara signature foot ritual.)

Those yearning for a signature experience can also opt for one of two 120-minute spa journeys: the Royal Hammam and Nam Jai.

Afrah Hamdy, director of spa, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort elaborated: “The Royal Hammam experience is an East-meets-West combination performed in the couples’ Turkish hammam and treatment room, and epitomises our years of Anantara Spa expertise and the age-old therapies originating in the Middle East. 

“For guests looking for a purely Asian experience, the signature Nam Jai treatment – which means ‘water from the heart’ – uses classic Thai ingredients that are fused together to create high quality products that awaken the senses when applied by our talented therapists,” Hamdy added.

Boosting Anantara Spa’s credentials, its team has also been expanded with the 36-strong team of professionals including 20 spa therapists with hands-on experience across the full spectrum of beauty and wellness treatments.
