Review: The Luxury Spa at The Oberoi, Dubai

Shopping in Dubai is an art. And we are seasoned artists with unlimited talent to sniff out the best deals from every shopaholics dream destination- Dubai. But it’s not an easy task. Endless hours are invested walking through gigantic malls that flaunt countless streets and escalators and take you deeper and deeper into the world of shopping. After one such shopping expedition recently, our tired feet sent a SOS message and off we went in the direction of Dubai Mall…no, not to shop. But to indulge in a holistic massage therapy at Oberoi Dubai, a contemporary and luxurious hotel located just minutes away from the biggest mall in the world- Dubai Mall.

The elevator chimed as we stepped on to the third floor of the hotel that boasts of a dedicated wellness floor complete with a luxurious spa, a 24-hour gymnasium and a swimming pool. We looked around and saw colorful paintings adorning the walls and a beautiful fragrance adding to the welcome experience.

A smiling hostess guided us through the spa menu that listed a comprehensive range of holistic massage therapies- Western, Balinese, Thai and Ayurveda techniques to promote relaxation, rejuvenation and wellbeing. Being a little pressed for time, we chose the 60 minutes signature massage called the “Oberoi massage” that is customized to relax your mind, body and senses. Our therapist for the day politely guided us to a nicely lit and spacious massage room, equipped with a changing area. The amenities in the changing area include a jewelry box to safe guard your valuables, a bathrobe, toiletries for men and women and soft slippers. The massage room itself is calming with its dimly lit and fragrant interiors.

We changed and prepped for our spa treatment with a relaxing foot soak.

While cleansing our feet, the therapist enquired our preference of soft or medium pressure and the oil to be used. There were 3 oils to choose from- "Uplift", "Relax" and "Calm".

We chose "Relax" oil and requested the therapist to pay special attention to our tired feet and lower back and she obliged. Slowly we succumbed to the expert stokes of the therapist that soothed our tired muscles and we entered a dreamy state as the tiredness ebbed away. The 60 minutes ended with a soothing head massage that was so blissful we almost went to sleep….right there on the spa bed :)

We headed to the shower room and indulged in a long shower and totally loved the specially crafted toiletries by Italian designer label-Etro. We stepped out and chose a herbal tea to sip on as we glowed in after-experience of the pampering treatment.

  4. The foundation of massage therapy Toronto, especially medical therapy is often credited to the Eastern Chinese medical practices of 2000 BC. However, can have many benefits that are not all medical massage benefits. For example, the human touch element that has little to do with how you learn and much to do with how personable the massage therapist is and the energy they bring into the room. Kneading muscles and skin, having a top of the line massage table warmer or using the perfect combination of towels and lighting is not effective if the client is not in a relaxed state of mind. The therapist, too, has to learn massage therapy in a way that is relaxing and creates positive energy for their patients. Remember, no matter which type of massage you practice, patients usually see you for help becoming more relaxed and in less pain.
