In need of some serious pampering? We’ve got the answer. FACT’s David Tapley heads to Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai to destress with a treatment at Nikki Spa.
Late nights, not enough exercise and too much festive fun can leave you feeling tired, drained and a little heavier. However, January is the perfect time to start the New Year off on the right foot, so why not treat yourself to a pampering session at one of the most beautiful spas in Dubai?
There are so many reasons we love Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai but one of the main ones is their spa, Nikki Spa. With specially appointed spa suites for men, women, and couples, this chic spa features a hammam, sauna, steam room, ice fountain, mixed vitality pool, and indoor and outdoor relaxation lounges.
Much like the resort in which this particular spa sits, guests can expect a haven of tranquillity that blends contemporary design with bespoke and attentive service from a team of talented spa experts. We adore this spa as it has a resort feel, creating a brilliant white space that is luxurious yet understated, without feeling clinical.
The low-level spa building features seven treatments suites, each offering glimpses of the Dubai sky through lush vegetation and swaying palm fronds. We feel a distinct sense of calm wash over us before we even begin our treatment, as we’re welcomed and given a refreshing hibiscus based beverage while we fill in the consultation form.
With various facials, massages, scrubs and wraps available for guests, we’re overwhelmed by the options. The curated treatment concepts use the best available skincare products, including Clarins, Elemental Herbology and Les Sens de Marrakech, to ensure your wellness journey is enhanced with natural ingredients and aromatic oils.
Treatments can be fully customised to guests needs, with the ‘Revive’ treatment designed for those whole travel often and the ‘Repair’ treatment created for sun-drenched and environmentally damaged skins.
Our 55-minute massage uses firm pressure and stimulating movements to soothe tense muscle tissue and promote relaxation. It’s a complete top-to-toe relaxation journey, incorporating body massage that appears to replicate the movement of the sea, combining both gentle and stimulating movements. It’s the ultimate luxury treatment to relieve aches and pains and one that sends us drifting off to sleep. This treatment is utterly rejuvenating and so relaxing, allowing tension to drift away and for a new you to be uncovered.
Post-treatment you can relax in the steam room, sauna or spend your afternoon at the beautiful vitality pool. Located on Pearl Jumeira’s waterfront, Nikki Spa offers guests a vacation-like spa experience with stunning panoramic views over Arabian Gulf. Sometimes we forget how close we are to the beach, but this visit to Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai was a wonderful reminder.
