Spa Dubai

Spa Reviews

The spa-centric city of Dubai is hotter than a hot stone massage. And, we’re not just talking temperatures. While year-round climes hover in the vicinity of the mid to upper 30s, what makes this booming destination really sizzle is the incredible number of new real estate developments. Luxury hotels, gleaming mega malls, theme parks, upscale residential communities, even a designated health and wellness city within-a-city are all under construction. Then, you have the spas.

On the luxury scale, Dubai easily competes with such spa-centric destinations as Las Vegas and Scottsdale, and because the city is a mini United Nations with more than 120 different nationalities making their home in the emirate (one of seven in the United Arab Emirates) – you’ll find spas influenced by wellness disciplines from around the world.
