The newly unveiled Turkish Hammam and ‘Fountain of Youth’ at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort gives guests an opportunity to enjoy traditional hammam rituals and more
The two-tier spa, which offers an Asian inspired sanctuary, has just re-opened with an additional six treatment rooms, bringing the total to 24, as well as new male, female and couples’ hammam facilities.
On the ground floor, spa guests already have access to six single treatment rooms with showers, two beauty rooms, a Thai massage suite, a holistic cocoon room, an Ayurveda suite and three couples’ suites, each of which feature a Serali steam bath, experience showers and an infinity solo pool bath. On the first floor, the number of single treatment rooms has doubled to eight, along with the addition of two new 34-square metre couples’ massage rooms with built-in sauna, showers and whirlpool featuring Microsilk technology.
The new Turkish-style hammam offers separate male and female facilities, as well as relaxation areas, changing rooms, a dedicated couples’ hammam, reception, and a boutique where guests can purchase their favourite spa products.
“We are the first spa in the region to introduce Microsilk technology, the bathing experience beauty experts are calling ‘the Fountain of Youth’. Guests will have the option to upgrade their hammam experience and enjoy the oxygen-rich micro-bubble bath, which is a patented process that supersaturates the water with billions of bubbles, raising oxygen levels up to 70 per cent higher than common tap water, increasing metabolism and promoting the growth of skin cells,” said Jean-Francois Laurent, general manager, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.
Guests visiting the new-look Anantara Spa now have an expanded choice of over 30 treatments covering wellness therapies from Asia to the Middle East, as well as traditional hammam rituals, body and Ayurvedic treatments and results-oriented facials. Each Turkish hammam treatment will include the Anantara signature foot ritual. Spa lovers looking for a signature experience will also have a choice of two 120-minute spa journeys – the Royal Hammam and Nam Jai.
“The Royal Hammam experience is an East-meets-West combination performed in the couples’ Turkish hammam and treatment room, and epitomises our years of Anantara Spa expertise and the age-old therapies originating in the Middle East,” said Afrah Hamdy, director of spa, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.
“For guests looking for a purely Asian experience, the signature Nam Jai treatment – which means ‘water from the heart’ – uses classic Thai ingredients that are fused together to create high quality products that awaken the senses when applied by our talented therapists,” remarked Hamdy.
Spa visitors will also be able to enjoy full access to the resort’s Tuk Tuk Kids Club, with complimentary pool and beach access for guests booking Couple’s Quality Time and Anantara Spa Journey treatments. The resort will also relaunch the popular Wednesday Spa Ladies Night soon.
Anantara Spa uses its own bespoke range of branded products, and the 100 per cent natural spa line features carefully selected ingredients with floral notes, fruit blends, botanical extracts, essential oils, spices and nuts, sourced from across Asia, which are blended to deliver optimum results.
It also utilises a trio of top European cosmetic and skincare brands for select treatments; these include leading Spanish cosmetics brand Natura Bisse; luxury British spa and anti-ageing specialist skincare company, Elemis; and France’s Charme D’Orient, which uses authentic raw materials to create ritual treatment products.
The spa team has also been expanded with the 36-member team of professionals including 20 spa therapists with hands-on experience across the full spectrum of beauty and wellness treatments.
