W Dubai - The Palm opens first Away Spa in the UAE
The venue bends spa rules, transforming the traditional treatment experience into an amped-up social scene
The W Dubai – The Palm has launched its Away Spa. The first of its kind in the UAE, the spa is designed for guests to ‘stroll in and strut out’.
Hotelier Middle East's sister title Middle East Beauty reported that the Away Spa, which is located on the ground floor of the W Dubai –The Palm, has 10 treatment rooms (five male and five female) and one couple’s suite. Treatments include an experiential shower, whirlpool, steam room, hammam and a sauna.
According to the report, the spa emulates the playful vibe of the hotel, to present a non-traditional spa destination. The spa features a central light feature in the shape of a water drop that hovers over the spa’s mix and mingle space, the Beauty Bar, creating a "distinctive" social space. The spa’s pearl-inspired interior reportedly echoes the pearl diving history of Dubai while the dark mosaic tiles emulate the jewel tones seen by divers under the ocean.
At the bar, guests can sip on a beverage and enjoy makeup touch-ups and on-demand quick fixes, including a touch of Glitter, Glow Mask or Wink lash applications.
The spa menu is split into detox treatments - body to buff and polish from the outside in; face to allow you to get camera ready and massage treatments to work out those kinks. Stand-out treatments include Triple Lift, a facial by cult-French brand Biologique Recherche, Smith & Cult Manicures and a full body Hamman experience with a Knesko gold mask.
