We drop in at the Saray Spa at JW Marriott Marquis to boost our mental health …
Mental health and well-being is just as important to your sanity as a healthy diet and physical exercise. What is it with the smell of lemon grass essential oils that is synonymous with being in the spa?
Walking into The Saray Spa in the JW Marriot Marquis instanteously washes you over with tranquility, peace and all the stress that you hold in your mind and body just floats away.
I was enveloped with calmness as soon as I arrived in this perfectly dimmed and spatial spa then escorted to the shower changing room. Once draped into my fluffy robe and slippers, my escort was patiently waiting for me and guided me to the waiting area. The heated tiled bench in the waiting area (fantastic idea) can be on the upper side of hot so do take care
Whilst waiting for my massuese to fetch me, I did a little exploration in the waiting area. It hosts a jaccuzie, good sized steam room and sauna. To my delight I also saw a Plunge Shower which is a big bucket of water and you pull a rope to feel like your under a lovely waterfall. Another room had a ice bucket that is recommended for after the use of the sauna and or steam room. It makes wonderful sense as it helps you cool down and tightens the pores.
My massuese came and I was taken to a private room for my relaxation treatment. I chose out of the three body oils the Lavender oil. The Massuese’s expert hands targeted all the knots I knew I had (some I didn’t) and I felt like I was in heaven. After 60 minutes of treatment, it just flew by
I was asked if I would like to relax in the Women’s Lounge area for tea after my massage in which certainly I did. Presented with a pot of lovely green tea, dates and raw mixed nuts it was a fitting end. At this moment of calmness I am most certain, the thought that would go through every one’s mind is, ‘now how can I get this everyday?’
The relaxation treatment is Dhs.520 for 60 minutes which I would point out that it is price wise comparable to many other spas in Dubai. If you do have the luxury of time and balancing your mental health is paramount I highly recommend that you take as much time as you like to, either, before or after the massage use all the facilities that is available at the spa. Would I like to experience this again?
