Get your wellness on at Contrast in Dubai. The new wellness centre has opened on Palm Jumeirah, and has been created by the singer Layla Kardan. The venue brings together a first-of-its-kind sauna, ice studio, IV drips and massages.
Located on Golden Mile 6, Contrast in Dubai aims to put you into the holiday state of mind. The décor boasts a Mediterranean aesthetic, from curved walls to marble features. Plus, there are beige, cream and white walls, which create a calm space.
Contrast has five private sauna rooms, and is home to the city’s first therapy room with a sauna, salt walls and immersive ice bath. The saunas are equipped with state-of-the-art features, which will make you feel right at home. We’re talking a 32-inch Smart TV, so you can binge on your favourite Netflix show. Plus, you can listen to your favourite Spotify playlist.
Visitors can choose one treatment or combine a sauna and ice bath experience. The treatments use chromotherapy (aka coloured light therapy) to get you into a state of zen. Plus, if you can stand the heat, bring a mat and turn it into your own hot yoga studio.
Hamdan Al Khafaji, Co-founder of Contrast, explained: “We are thrilled to bring Contrast to the Palm Jumeriah. Our focus is on providing a truly unique, accessible and luxurious experience that promotes wellness from within, vitality, and mental resilience. In my personal life, I have greatly benefitted from the modalities of both saunas and ice baths. I have experienced their healing powers on every level, they will always be tools in my wellbeing toolkit and I’m looking forward to creating a welcoming haven of restoration in Dubai.”
Layla Kardan is best known in the UAE as the founder of the jazz clubs Papillon and Penelope’s Jazz Bar. In 2021, Papillion launched in The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and put on dinner and a show.
