Saray Spa draws visitors from far and wide, and the tranquil, elegant centre of wellness has opened its doors with an evocative list of offerings. Keeping alive many Arabic healing rituals and traditions and combining them with the power of scientific products, this luxury desert retreat focuses on the practical as well as the emotional experience.

Featuring 11 treatment rooms, plus indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, saunas, steam rooms, plunge pools, salt rooms, a snow cave, an ice-cold bucket room, a traditional Turkish hammam and a whirlpool, this expansive luxurious escape extends over 2,200sq.m. and promises a rejuvenation for the journey ahead.

Giving each guest the sensation that they have entered their own private luxurious desert retreat, a visit to Saray Spa is a completion of revitalising and relaxing experience from start to finish. The menu of nourishing treatments, designed to pamper both the body and soul, features massages to suit all requirements, uplifting facials, traditional Hammam experiences, plus enhanced add-ons such as foot, scalp, back and shoulder massages or exfoliation treatments.

The spa houses the beautiful La Vallée range, inspired by the majestic wildlife of the Swiss Alps. Globally renowned for achieving clinically proven results, the products incorporate the clear glacier water of the mountains and Swiss Alpine plants. The innovative treatments at the spa are designed to make the most of the products while creating a glowing, revitalised complexion.

Guests can further enhance their treatment by a snow cave experience – the only one in Abu Dhabi. This experience not only enables stimulation of the skin, assists blood circulation and strengthens the immune system, but also tightens the skin and revitalises the whole body.

With its opening, Saray Spa also introduces a number of signature experiences that are unique to the location. The Al Wathba Signature Massage enables guests to escape their worries for a while and emerge feeling fully refreshed. The specially crafted, full body massage utilises ancient therapeutic techniques and deep flow movements to tremendous effect, and each is tailored to suit each individual’s needs and improve both their physical, and mental wellbeing. The journey concludes with an immersive sound healing therapy session, ensuring that each guest carries a sense of peace out with them and into the rest of their stay. The 75-minute Al Wathba Signature Massage is available for AED 690.

Meanwhile, the Caviar Collagen Boost Facial Treatment by La Vallée is set to become another of the resort’s most popular features. The beautiful La Vallée range is inspired by the majestic wildlife of the Swiss Alps, with researchers sourcing ingredients direct from the wild and beautiful landscape. By incorporating the clear glacier water of the mountains and Swiss Alpine plants, the innovative treatments are designed to care for and protect the skin, creating a glowing, revitalised complexion.

Boasting a high-tech formula that harnesses the benefits of rare ingredients such as Nutrisea Caviar Extract, this extra special facial infuses the skin with vitamins and antioxidants to remove any signs of aging and leave it feeling plumped, firm and silky smooth. This 60-minute immersive experience is available for AED 850.

Finally, Saray Spa is proud to use products from the homegrown, female-led beauty brand Hammamii in its traditional Turkish Hammam. Inspired by traditional Turkish bathhouses, this foam ritual begins with eucalyptus to open the senses and aromatic rosemary “Kirmizi Biber” to exfoliate the skin.
