It really will be a case of hair today, gone tomorrow when the Grosvenor House West Marina Beach by Le Meridien opens in June. The five-star property, which will become the first hotel complex to open on the Dubai Marina, has partnered with Nextar, the UAE-headquartered holding company for N.Bar and 1847, to operate fast grooming outlets in Retreat Health & Spa, the hotel’s dedicated personal grooming floor. Retreat Health & Spa will house the fourth N.Bar in Dubai, the second 1847, and the group’s first ever hair bar, which currently has the working title of The Hair Bar. All three outlets will be ready for business when the hotel opens on June 1. “Retreat Health & Spa will have the top-end spa facilities that are essential for a total lifestyle property, but will also have a section dedicated to fast personal grooming,” says Pam Wilby, general manager for Grosvenor House. “Today’s hectic pace of life demands blow-dries and manicures en route to a morning business meeting, or a shave and a trip to the salon during a lunch break. The key to Nextar’s brand promise is ‘fast glamour for nails’ and ‘executive grooming for men’, delivered with impeccable service, which we have identified as essential to the needs of our guests and residents,” she adds. Negin Fattahi-Dasmal, creator of the three concepts of the Nextar parent company, admits that the decision to have outlets in Grosvenor House was “a given”. She says: “In terms of desirable addresses, Grosvenor House is right up there with the Hotel de Crillon in Paris and The Ritz in London. Thanks to its combination of hotel and residential apartments and with its location on the Dubai Marina, we are now able to extend our services further to residents of new Dubai.” Retreat Health & Spa will be open to hotel guests and residents, as well as walk-in customers. Founded by Negin Fattahi-Dasmal in 2000, Nextar is the holding company of N.Bar, the region’s first home grown chain of nail treatment bars, and 1847, the region’s first dedicated grooming lounge for men. N.Bar has branches in Palm Strip Mall, Emirates Towers Boulevard and Al Ghurair City and 1847’s flagship store is located at Emirates Towers Boulevard. Nextar also holds regional distributorships for Essie nail care products and polishes, as well as male skin care brands The Art of Shaving and VitaMan.
