‘Tis the season to treat yourself. That means hitting the spa belongs at the top of your list. Embracing the scents of the holidays ahead, some of Dubai’s best spas are set to offer packages not to be missed. From peppermint to frankincense and cinnamon to myrrh, getting in the festive spirit has never been so satisfying.
Peppermint and Hot Chocolate Escape at The Heavenly Spa
Refresh and unwind as The Heavenly Spa looks to peppermint to invigorate the senses. The massage is similar to an aromatherapy ritual, with your therapist cleansing your feet with peppermint scrub before you lay down on the cloud-like bed. Working the peppermint oil into your skin and muscles, the massage not only offers relaxation but can also aid in digestion and respiratory issues, and reducing stress, and pain. Post massage, it’s time to don a fluffy robe and slippers before indulging in a cup of homemade dark chocolate. Why doesn’t every massage finish like this?

Cinnamon & Spice Indulgence at Iridium Spa
Massages should be made of sugar and spice and all things nice. That’s why the Iridium Spa has looked to cinnamon and spices to offer the ultimate festive package. Beginning the experience with a cinnamon-infused tea during the consultation, your skin is then treated to a 30minute salt scrub that leaves it polished and glowing. Following this, a massage infused with a blend of frankincense and myrrh relaxes weary muscles, whilst invigorating the soul. Finish by unwinding in one of the coziest relaxation rooms in the city, letting the oils soak even further into your skin.
