Are you looking to spend some romantic and quite time as a couple, taking in scenic views and indulging in a relaxing massage away from the hustle and bustle of the city?
Then make a quick escape into the desert to this luxury heritage resort away from the bright lights and busy roads. Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is just a 40 minute drive from the city, where you will experience the look and feel of an old village with classic interiors and modern facilities.
Besides the many activities such as desert safari, infinity pool and camel rides, you can choose to indulge in a very relaxing couples massage at the resort's luxury Satori Spa.
The spa has an exclusive massage option for you and your partner called ‘Couples Candle Light Massage’.
As you enter the spa, you will get a warm welcome at the reception and will be given a private suite to relax. A member of the attentive staff will first lead you to the changing room and before the massage they advise you to take a steam bath which will elevate your massage experience, as the pores become open and oil seeps inside.
For this very exclusive couples massage, you can either choose an outdoor cabana or an indoor exclusive suite. For the outdoor experience, you will be given a slot at 5.30pm, in time to enjoy your massage while the sun sets. For couples, it can be a very memorable moment to cherish as they spend a romantic day together soaking up some of the most pristine views nature has to offer in a very exclusive and unusual setting.
After you change, the therapist will take you to the private cabana, or the exclusive suit laden with fresh roses and candle lights. You get the vibe right?
The massage takes 80 minutes and hot aromatic oil is used for this truly relaxing massage. Therapists are without doubt very professional and very well trained. Don’t be surprised if you doze off midway through, but once you get up, you will be full of energy and feel totally rejuvenated.
After the massage, you will go to your private suite and relax while sipping a cup of freshly brewed ginger tea.
While there, you may want to end your experience with a meal at one of the resorts restaurants. Price Dhs 1,600 per couple.
