DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - May 27, 2014) - In time for the summer holidays, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai adds another reason to visit the legendary beachfront oasis with its all-new luxury spa complete with innovative concept, designed to offer therapeutic and blissful experiences for global discerning travelers.
Nestled along the Arabian Gulf, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dubai exudes the ambiance of an intimate oasis that perfectly combines the traditions and warmth of an Arabian "Hammam." With nine multi-purpose treatment rooms, three private couple's rooms with private terraces, separate relaxation lounges, indoor hot and cold plunge pools and an outdoor lap pool, the Dubai spa is laid out to suit the quiet and contemplative mood of the luxury resort setting.
"With the new spa and its new concept, it is a continuation of the story that began with the repositioning of our resort last year. The hotel is a sanctuary where guests can relax and enjoy a little time-out and our spa seamlessly complements the experience by providing treatments fully personalized to every guest's needs," said Raul Salcido, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.
The spa's new concept harmoniously blends Ritz-Carlton service standards with Arabian influences through its new "Target and Treat" menu, which encompasses authentic, intuitive and innovative treatments. Guests can rely on the spa's four pillars -- Detox & Cleanse, Rejuvenate & Repair, Relax & De-stress and Energize & Awaken -- to provide holistic experiences. Each pillar consists of signature rituals whereby guests embark on a journey of exploration that will inspire all five senses.
The Rejuvenate & Repair Diamond Ritual comes with real results wrapped in luxury. This luxurious ritual uses the luminous power of DIAMOND dust, using the unique combination of touch and healing quartzes and restoring the youthfulness and natural brightness of the skin.
The Relax & De-stress Mineral Ritual is the perfect fusion of ancient knowledge and modern innovation. It incorporates minerals known for their therapeutic benefits, and combines them with carefully coordinated techniques and healing temperatures to create an incredibly relaxing experience.
"Through our treatments and the spa ambiance, guests receive exactly what they need in the most relaxing environment. To creating that sense of ease, we have designed a real flow of experiences, from the welcome ritual, personalized treatments to home care advice -- everything is ensured to work in harmony to achieve the guest's desired results," explains Maria Haggo, Director of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dubai.
