The De La Mer Day Spa is such a hidden gem! Located on Jumeirah Beach Road (opposite the Jumeirah Beach Hotel), and with a 14,000 square foot garden it really is a haven in a busy city.
Whether clients are nipping in for a quick manicure or spending a day by the pool with friends, the spa’s priority is that everyone feels at home.
De La Mer Day Spa offers a wide range of massages, scrubs, face and body treatments using natural & organic products. The ground floor hosts a hair salon and a well-equipped gym. A hammam and a VIP room are also available on the second floor. Guest and members can hire the VIP room for group of friends or a party and enjoy treatments, the Jacuzzi and relaxation with total privacy.
The walled garden offers privacy with more space. A pool, Jacuzzi and seating areas encourage members to enjoy the outdoors. Weekly yoga classes also take place in the garden.
I was recently invited to a media event hosted by the De La Mer Spa and was offered to try out 2 of their treatments! I chose their Papaya Body Wrap and their Coconut Foot Scrub.
Upon arriving, my therapist, the lovely Rose (she’s AMAZING!) led me to the most beautiful & relaxing treatment room on the 1st floor. The spa is so well decorated with shades of browns and earthy tones, it really inspires you to let go of all your worries!
Now comfortably lying on a very soft massage bed, Rose proceeded with the foot scrub. She uses pure dried coconut, mixed in with warm coconut oil and organic brown sugar! What a delight! All the ingredients are 100% natural and prepared a few minutes before our treatment! She rubbed the mixture into my feet, ankles and lower legs which was very nice and invigorating. The results? My skin was SOOOO smooth! Baby feet soft! Seriously amazing!
We then moved on to the body wrap! Again, using natural papaya fruit mashed up and mixed with a little almond oil, she smoothed the mixtured onto my whole body, wrapped me in cling film and towel to warm my skin up and allow the treatment to work deep into the skin and after 10 mins we proceeded to rinse it all off!
Papaya enzymes are said to even out skin tones, clear out any imperfections and smooth out the skin. I was amazed to feel a much smoother and hydrated skin after rinsing it all off. Rose then applied the creamiest body moisturiser from their Charme D’Orient range, in a massaging motion which was just the most relaxing experience ever and half an hour later, a new me emerged from the cabin!
The Papaya Body Wrap is a 60-mins treatment and retails at AED290 which is really great value!
I went back down to the main reception area where I was offered a warm ginger tea and greeted by the Spa owner, the lovely Moira Pirzad. One of the nicest woman I’ve ever met. Her & her husband gave us a tour of the property and took us around the beautiful garden area where we enjoyed some healthy snacks & organic beauty talk!
I still cannot believe that a day pass to use the facilities is only AED80 or AED300 for a monthly membership! I don’t think I have ever been made to feel so ‘at home’ in a spa before and will certainly be back in a few weeks to try out more of their all organic treatments! I’m certainly intrigued by their new VOYA treatments which uses organic seaweed based products…. I shall keep you posted!!
