Indulge in a luxurious facial at EDITION Spa
Even though most of us follow a daily skin routine at home, it’s not as effective as facials performed by experts. EDITION Spa, at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, has catered to those needs with the Quench and Glow Facial, a nourishing facial that leaves even the thirstiest skins hydrated and ready for any element. Peptides and brightening botanicals instantly penetrate the skin, increasing water retention while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Available daily, from 10am to 10pm. AED 325 (30-minute treatment).
Happy Hour at Hunter & Barrel
Unless you live under a rock, you know that Yas Bay Waterfront is where it’s at when it comes to hip and happening in Abu Dhabi’s dining scene. As for its latest addition? Hunter & Barrel the high-end casual dining restaurant and lounge concept born in Australia. Diners can expect a focus on communal dining and mouth-watering sharing platters, continuing the brand’s culinary and thematic homage to ancestral hunter-and-gatherer techniques through a carefully curated menu and interiors.
