Anantara Spa redefines the
Turkish hammam experience in Dubai
Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort has recently unveiled its newly expanded award-winning spa. The two-tier spa, which offers a luxurious Asian inspired sanctuary, re-opened last November with an additional six treatment rooms, bringing the total to 24, as well as a new luxuriously appointed hammam facilities.
The Turkish-styled 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% 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.
For the ultimate a signature experience, guests will also have a choice of two 120-minute treatments – 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 Nahm 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.
Anantara Spa uses its own bespoke range of branded products, and the 100% 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 Bissē; luxury British spa and anti-ageing specialist skincare company, Elemis; and France’s Charme D’Orient, which uses authentic raw materials to create acclaimed ritual treatment products.
The Anantara Spa is open from 10am to 10pm daily. For reservations or more information, please call +971 (0)4 567 8140 or email email@example.com
