The Mandarin Oriental is renowned for its spas across the globe. Offering holistic experiences each spa has been created with complete relaxation in mind. The Spa at the recently opened Mandarin Oriental in Dubai is no different. Designed with inspiration drawn from the desert that surrounds it, it is truly a welcoming oasis. Lines of undulating sand dunes flow through the space leading guests to one of the nine treatment rooms, including a VIP suite and heat and water facilities. Guests can switch off and unwind, with ambient lighting, natural elements and soothing music enhancing each experience. Areas have also been created so you can relax in complete privacy.

Known for its signature treatments, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental in Dubai is no different from its sister spas across the world. On the menu the Oriental Harmony treatment which has been perfected for those with jet lag. Then, the Digital Wellness Escape which has been created with combating the skin-damaging effects of technology. Exclusive to the spa and inspired by the region two unique massages join this lineup. Taking guests on a sensory experience, the Nomadic Sensory journey captures the spirit of the Emirati Bedouin life by working with a rhythmic ritual featuring the beat of an Arabic goblet drum, also known as the Doumbek.
