WHERE: Ritz-Carlton, Dubai, JBR, 04 399 4000, www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/Dubai.
HOW LONG: 1 hour 50 minutes.
HOW MUCH: Dhs750.
THE PROCESS: The Ritz-Carlton in JBR has unveiled a whole new wing, and with it, a magnificent new spa. With separate quarters for men and women and a dedicated Hammam area, this mystical Arabian-themed spa is truly special. My therapist greeted me with a glass of date juice and asked me to choose from Wild Berry or Thai Green Tea and Lemongrass oils for my treatment. Both options are great for detoxing, but I opted for the Wild Berry oil as it smelled wonderful. My treatment involved a full body exfoliation, body mask and a massage and guaranteed glowing skin. Once I settled in my plush room, my body exfoliation began and it felt great! Once completely scrubbed, I was cocooned in a body wrap so my skin could soak up all the berry goodness as my therapist gave me a head massage. After a quick shower, I was treated to a whole body massage which was simply blissful.
THE RESULT: Aside from being more relaxed than I have ever been, I also felt completely rejuvenated.
MAINTENANCE: Using a body scrub once a week will ensure my skin stays silky smooth.
