Amara Spa – Park Hyatt Dubai

Guess what I was gifted for my birthday by a considerate friend? A marvelous adult experience!! Now get your thoughts out of the gutter, and back into the clouds, for this interlude was at the hands of a trained masseuse and accompanied by therapeutic oils and the dulcit strains of Bach, at the Amara Spa located along the banks of the Dubai Creek…

With a nod to the architecture of classical Moorish palaces, and elements from their colonial past interweaved throughout, Amara functioned like a salve for my jittery limbs; a sensory balm to calm this busy brain, all around me understated luxury and tranquility.

White exterior and royal blue domes welcomed me into this secluded spa, nestled away from central Dubai. Verdant gardens and befitting landscaping, complete with oil lanterns, does its job at stimulating my senses – waking me up to nature – yet soothing nerves frayed from office life. All I can think is that I have joined the adventures of Sinbad, Aladdin, and his genie in the One Thousand and One Arabian Nights…

I begin my journey with a rain shower, palm trees my only witnesses, in the private garden of my spa suite. Next, feet and hands surrender to a rose petal ritual. Time to be transported into euphoria, for the massage now begins.
