‘Perfect’ desert wellness retreat opens in Abu Dhabi
Set deep in the desert landscape of Abu Dhabi, the Talise Spa at the new Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa is being acclaimed as a hallmark intimate destination offering a sense of wellbeing and tranquility.
The destination, located 50 kilometres on the south east of the city of Abu Dhabi, is offering a range of wellness experiences, for individuals, couples or friends.
Trained to tailor experiences, spa treatments are delivered with faultless service in 13 luxury treatment rooms including couples' suites and private terraces.
Steam rooms, crystal salt saunas and plunge pools are part of the experience, with Margy's Monte Carlo treatments and Hammams inspired by traditional Turkish bathhouses a key feature. If the snow room is not cold enough, another standout feature includes the revitalising IceLab Cryo Therapy, where exposure to -110°C invigorates the mind, relaxes muscles and supports anti-ageing.
With a resort design inspired by traditional villages, and rooms as well as villas featuring historic details and meandering courtyards, this exclusive destination transforms the way that wellness is defined. A stunning desert resort with over 22,000 metre² of dunes provide a calming energy, underlined by the soothing sounds of water, with a 1,000 metre² pool set to rejuvenate guests in a tranquil and peaceful environment.
The Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort also offers guests the opportunity to learn about Abu Dhabi's ancient traditions admiring majestic birds of prey, guided treks as the sun sets, crossing the dunes by horseback or modern day fat bikes. For those hungry for more, enjoy the sunset in one of six venues including the breathtaking rooftop bar and Al Mabeet, a remote desert dining experience, or find a deeper connection to the destination and the spirit of the desert, in the yoga pavilion.
Introducing the experiences available at the Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort, Jumeirah Group Chief Executive, José Silva stated "it's important for us to have a portfolio in Abu Dhabi that reflects the true essence of the destination and offers a unique wellness retreat with exceptional service.
“The resort joins Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort and Jumeirah at Etihad Towers - both in prime locations. It combines Arabian charm, architecture, generous hospitality and promises a luxurious experience amidst a panoramic backdrop. We look forward to welcoming our guests."
