Experience a spectacular spa-cation at AWAY Spa, W Dubai – The Palm
Escape from it all and enjoy the ultimate spa experience at AWAY Spa, W Dubai – The Palm.
The largest attractions in the city, such as The View at The Palm, Nakheel Mall, Mall of the Emirates, and theme and water parks, are all within a short drive of W Dubai – The Palm’s prime location.
Step into a haven of joy and relaxation at AWAY Spa where their ‘Amplify your game package’ offers a 60-minute massage, one main course & a soft beverage and complimentary access to WET, the beach, FIT (gym) and the indoor squash courts.
As I make my way to the spa through the lobby, filled with innumerable hanging lanterns and stylish gold furnishings, a feeling of freedom and escapism involves me. Iridescent lettering illuminates the entrance of AWAY Spa, while the reception room maintains the same futuristic and colourful aesthetic with a distinctive playful vibe.
At reception, the welcoming receptionist explains in detail the three different types of massage I can choose from (Detox, De-stress, Go Deep and Reset) and takes me to the changing room to change into my robe. The circular changing area is boasts hairdryers, illuminated magnifying mirrors and lockers and, from there, you can also find a steam room, sauna facilities and a refreshing plunge pool.
From the couple’s suite to the hammam steam room, each area of the AWAY Spa prioritizes a different service. I am brought into a sensory room filled with mosaic tiles with a metallic shine and pleated strings and a super luxe and comfy heated massage bed to ensure the highest level of comfort during the treatment.
I decide to choose the detox massage as it focuses more on stimulating blood circulation and encourages the natural drainage of lymph fluid from the body tissue. Using very light rhythmic pressure, the therapist helps drain puffy and swollen tissues, specially in my neck and shoulders, where I have concentrated most of the knots and tension.
After it, I go back to the changing room to have a cup of green tea and I feel incredibly at peace, energized, relaxed and ready to discover the beach and pool facilities.
The hotel features an impressive adults-only pool called WET Deck with a pool bar and a DJ playing lively tunes and also the WET pool with different levelled pools and distinctive cabanas. The beach area offers stunning views of the Dubai skyline and Arabian Gulf.
I opt to have lunch at the WET Deck pool and, which offers a menu delectable quick bites, sandwiches, salads and main courses. After a careful look, I decide to have pan seared Chilean seabass with lettuce, fennel, cherry tomato and orange salad, which is soft, light and cooked-to-perfection.
I end the day with a relaxing walk around the beach and as I listen to the sound of the waves and look at the marvellous vistas, I feel grateful to realise how refresh I feel and to have enjoyed such a blissful day.
