Immune to the over-the-top interiors trend that Dubai hotels have long been subscribed to, the newly re-launched Address Boulevard, next to The Dubai Mall, is a contemporary, serene hotspot that boasts beautiful artwork, modern decor and a spacious spa. Sprawled across an entire floor, the wellness and fitness retreat has found its niche with a selection of tailored treatments and amenities that go above and beyond the usual regional spa scene.
The modern entrance area at The Spa, The Address Boulevard
Ensuring each experience is more of a journey, not a ritual, when Bazaar stepped into the spa we were greeted with a lavender-infused water and cold towel as a relaxing welcome before being escorted to a private changing area (complete with showers and a dedicated beauty station) to change into a fluffy robe and flip flops.
Our 'Summer Renew' treatment began with a traditional Lulur scrub, applied with gentle pressure to exfoliate the skin and prepare it for the moisturising wrap. Left on the skin for 30 minutes before being rinsed off in a private bathroom attached to the treatment area, you are then wrapped in a deliciously fragrant Shea Butter body mask. Once you're covered from head-to-toe, the heating pad underneath the treatment bed is turned on and your therapist will then tuck you in to the warm coccoon while you breathe in relaxing essential oils placed under the bed.
The Spa boasts world-class facilities including an outdoor pool area
The final step on your journey is a deeply invigorating massage, completed with your preferred pressure, that further allows the rich Shea Butter to sink deeper into the skin, leaving you refreshed, relaxed and revived with silky soft skin. Post-pampering, our therapist gently coaxed us out of the treatment space and into the relaxation hub of the spa to experience the dedicated spa pool, rainforest showers, steam room and other state-of-the-art amenities that cement the spa as one of the leading wellness destinations in the city.
