Escape to a picturesque paradise located just across the creek

Amara Spa, Park Hyatt Dubai

The Spa

Located near the iconic Dubai Creek Golf Course, with a perfectly picturesque surrounding the Amara Spa at the Park Hyatt Dubai, provides an exquisite escape for locals and visitors alike. A beautiful sanctuary, the serene interiors of the spa make for an ideal spot for an undoubtedly tranquil pampering experience. The relaxing journey of exotic rituals begins as soon as you enter the spa, where the aroma filled hallways and captivating lush gardens fill your senses. Upon arrival, the concierge uses ancient healing philosophies dubbed Diamond, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire to decipher clients individual needs. Taking note of preferences, areas to be targeted and any issues to ensure the ultimate in personalised treatments, you can choose from facials to massages and everything in between. Following all the work that went into shooting Bazaar's Best Dressed 2017, we opted for the Sapphire Anti-stress back therapy treatment.

The Treatment

What sets the Amara Spa apart from many of its counterparts, is the attention to detail and privacy you find within each of the treatment rooms. With each room featuring its own terrace, lounge area and private outdoor rain shower you'll be wanting to lounge about all day and not just for your treatment. The journey at the Amara Spa begins with a refreshing rain shower in the private garden, followed by a rose petal hand and foot ritual in preparation for the Sapphire Anti-stress heavenly massage for 60 or 90 minutes. Using a blend of signature oils including frankincense, amber and sandalwood which are gently warmed, the therapist uses deep and rhythmic movements to fully relax the body. Focusing on the back with the pressure required, knots and stress points are worked out leaving the whole body feeling relaxed. Soothing the spirit with the rich perfumes of the East, another touch that pushes the massage to the next level is the choice of music which sets the scene and adds another personal touch. Following the relaxing ritual, you are welcomed to a delightful relaxation session at the tranquillity garden, where tea and local delicacies are served - an extra special experience if the moon is up and the candles are flickering. 

The Verdict

What makes the Amara Spa that extra bit special is the attention to detail and the truly personalised treatment, from the oils to the music. Unlike many city based spas, the location also plays a special role in creating a truly unforgettable experience. There is no doubt that you can expect to leave the Amara Spa feeling nothing but relaxed, pampered and above all impatient to return for yet another refreshing journey.
