Whether you’re specifically looking for a sunlit holiday on the beach, or for a luxury resort on an island resembling paradise, a trip to Dubai can cater for your needs. There are many countries that have long open days of basking in the sunshine, but few do it better than the United Arab Emirates.

The city of Dubai is vast and was designed from the ground up, to purely be a vacation hotspot for international guests. There are so many options; you can get an oil massage at the top of one of the skyscrapers in the morning, and have your feet rubbed and face pampered by the beach at sunset. While you’re here how about visiting some of the most iconic and idyllic spots in the entire city, with islands and hotels solely geared toward servicing your every desire.
ShuiQi Spa, The Palm
The Atlantis hotel sits right in the middle like a centerpiece, on one of the modern marvels of modern human history. The Palm Island is a totally man-made island, that is quite literally shaped like a palm tree leaf. The hotel offers soothing and tension-releasing experiences. Book a bespoke treatment session from one of many spa deals Dubai, to get exactly what you want and none of the extras you don’t. Everyone is an individual and rather than settling for a package, feel free to customize your treatment routine. To give you a taste of what’s in store, the hotel offers an aromatherapy massage for your aching muscles, coupled with a salt scrub to absorb all the toxins released from your body. You can then have lunch with access to the beach to start working on your tan; giving you time to stretch and spread your wings.
Another resort on The Palm is the Anantara Dubai Resort. Offering the pleasures of a traditional Turkish bath, the Ottoman culture seeks out the impurities of your body and slowly, with an old-age ritual, aims to release pent up tension. The expert therapist will talk you through the methods, so you remain in full control of what you want. There are many steps to the hammam treatment; first, you’ll be surrounded by beautifully smooth, heated marble. Your body will be scrubbed to increase the flow, and then you’ll dunk yourself into a relaxing foam bath. Your skin will feel fresh and hydrated, giving new life to your sore muscles and encourage the body to rejuvenate and heal. A Turkish massage specializes in relaxing the head, neck, and shoulders. It’s a tradition that started with the world famous culture, of Turkish barbers, and still, proudly lives on in the many spa treatments on offer.
At the end of a long, fruitful day of sightseeing and dining at one of the fine restaurants in the city, the cherry on top would be lounging poolside, sipping on a cocktail. The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah breaks up the midweek mundanity with a fantastic large pool and a 30-minute foot massage. The therapists will free up every tiny bone in your feet while stretching and pressing every muscle. What better way to say goodnight to the sun than accompanying your massage with a few savory snacks to boot.
