Make a detox date
This month, try a total cleansing programme at Imar Spa. They’re offering a colonic and detox package, including food and five star accommodation, for just Dhs750.
This is a great deal, as the normal price for colonic hydrotherapy alone is Dhs390. For more details and bookings, call Imar Spa Umm Al Quwain on 06 7664440
Chill out together
Try a treat together at the Amara Spa, Park Hyatt Dubai. This month their superb spa ritual begins with a salt, pepper and ginger body scrub to remove dead skin, revive circulation and give you an all-over feeling of invigoration.
An outdoor rain-shower stimulates the senses and prepares you for an ultra-relaxing aromatherapy body massage.
Choose a selection from the Spa cuisine menu in one of the lounges, by the pool or in the Courtyard of tranquility - then end your day with a phyto-aromatic Anne Semonin facial by the exclusive Parisian brand Anne Semonin.
You can stay and use the spa and pool facilities for as long as you like. All this for Dhs780 per person. Call Amara Spa on 04 6021234.
Dead sea detox
Start the new year squeaky clean with the Elixir spa’s January special.
Start with a dead sea body wrap and scrub then envelop your body in deep cleansing dead sea mud. This treatment will de-stress and rejuvenate the body, while leaving your skin smooth and silky.
Follow this with the Ytsara organic facial treatment to deep-cleanse, revitalise and lift. You’ll emerge with brighter skin and a relaxed mind and body. Just Dhs670 for two and a half hours of bliss.
