The Jamilah Spa at Dubai’s Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa will introduce a host of new spa treatments, as well as an organic menu, from June. In response to requests by regular guests at the conservation-focused resort, body firming, hydration and detox treatments have been added to the spa menu, as well as mud baths and men’s facials. “Many of our guests have asked for hydration therapy because when they stay in the desert they find their skin and their hair becomes dry,” explained Lynette Zurcas, spa manager, Al Maha Desert Resort &Spa. “We have also found that because many couples stay here they are having treatments together and, as a result, the men are becoming more open to what the spa has to offer. We therefore decided it was time to introduce a men’s facial.” Zurcas said luxury travellers are becoming more spa-savvy and are showing increasing interest in alternative and holistic therapies. To cater to their needs, she has worked in partnership with the Al Maha chef to create an organic food menu comprising breakfast, all-day and dessert options. “We are also introducing an organic herbal tea menu made from loose leaf tea and blended with various properties to achieve different affects,” Zurcas revealed. De-stress, energising and cleansing are just some of the options featured on the tea menu. The Jamilah Spa, which uses its own Timeless range of products developed by German company Babor, will continue to offer its established treatments, which include customer favourites such as the 90-minute Timeless Traditions involving a body scrub, deep tissue massage and face and foot pack. Fresh dates and frankincense are blended with the products for a true Arabian experience.
