Spa and massage treatments are based on evolving techniques that have passed through the hands of many generations using aromatic oils, herbs and spices with ancient rejuvenating powers. The journey of peace and wellness continues with a relaxing rest time in the water garden after a hammam session.

The Banyan Tree Al Areen Spa also has a well-equipped health club and a Beauty Spa offering health and fitness programmes and beauty treatment.  Personal health club  trainers here can also design customised fitness and wellness programs to meet guests’ individual needs and objectives.

At the Ritz-Carlton, facilities include everything a spa-goer could imagine, with emphasis on cooling water features throughout the building that prepare the guests for a soothing treatment.

Nestled against the backdrop of surprising lush greenery, the Ritz-Carlton Spa offers a fabulous range of body treatments and intensive beauty packages that zero in on specific zones – the face, skin management and cellulite control, for example.


At the Diplomat Hotel Spa, 20 skilled Thai therapists will form the core of the treatment team that will focus on Thai massage and treatment packages augmented by European beauty treatment such as microdermabrasion and anti-ageing.

“Hotels are no longer just about rooms and business guests. In the continuous re-invention of the industry, hotels have found that a top-of-the-line spa attracts new visitors who spend time and money on the hotel’s facilities,” explained Diplomat Spa Manager Lotfi Hamrouni.

The Diplomat Hotel Spa also has extensive water treatment facilities including hydrotherapy pools, rejuvenation packages, Vichy showers and water jet massages.

Balancing the chi of the spa movement as it were, are two luxury day spas – the Jacques Dessange Spa in Adliya which oozes French attention to the body beautiful and la fontaine, just off Gudaibiya, which is a unique combination of luxury restaurant, contemporary art centre and spa!
