Spa in the sky: Dubai

Burj Al Arab, arguably, the world’s most luxurious hotel, has taken rejuvenation and wellness to new heights with the launch of male heat and steam spa lounges looking out to the World Islands and Downtown Dubai.

Sleek, smart and sophisticated, the new panoramic spaces feature exceptional visibility at all times thanks to a rare fog-proof glass. The steam lounge also has a special crystal frame which, when heated, becomes covered in a veneer of ice, against the exquisite mosaic tiles designed exclusively for Burj Al Arab.

It’s all part of the Burj Al Arab’s Talise Spa (formerly Assawan Spa) which provides bespoke treatments designed to match guests’ needs and desires. Located on the 18th floor with uninterrupted views over the Arabian Gulf, the spa offers 14 therapy rooms incorporating the traditional colours of the UAE. Talise Spa is open for both in-house guests and visitors.

To further enhance guests’ experience, the steam and sauna lounges have chromotherapy colour light systems increasing energy and relaxation. These new additions further complement the spa’s exquisite panoramic infinity pools and plunge pools.

It really is something else to have a heat room with such incredible views. Anyone heading to Dubai soon?
