Hawai­ian Lomi Lomi Mas­sage

Friday - - Spa Reviews -

Step­ping into the lav­ish Rixos spa, I was im­me­di­ately trans­ported to the re­gal Ot­toman em­pire of yore, with the plush gilded chairs, lanterns, drapes made from lux­u­ri­ous fab­rics and mar­ble floors com­plet­ing the il­lu­sion.

This Summer De­light pack­age of­fers a 60-minute hot stone mas­sage or a Lomi Lomi mas­sage, ac­com­pa­nied by a 30-minute re­ju­ve­nat­ing fa­cial. I picked the Lomi Lomi mas­sage – se­cretly hop­ing the ther­a­peu­tic treat­ment would in­stantly give me the well­ness of a Hawai­ian hol­i­day.

Us­ing warm laven­der oil mixed with grape­seed oil, I was then given an in­ten­sive back, neck and shoul­der mas­sage – bliss!

The pleas­ant aroma and the ther­a­pist’s firm strokes lulled me into a semi-con­scious state of re­lax­ation. I woke up just in time for the fa­cial us­ing Thalgo prod­ucts, con­tain­ing al­gae to hy­drate, soften and re­store my skin’s nat­u­ral elas­tic­ity. My ther­a­pist, Made, then used light steam to un­plug clogged pores, fol­lowed by a five-minute scrub and hot cloth cleanse. A re­fresh­ing toner was ap­plied with a gen­tle fa­cial mas­sage, fol­lowed by a hy­drat­ing mask and then a neck and shoul­der mas­sage.

The treat was topped off with a coat of hy­drat­ing and il­lu­mi­nat­ing mois­turiser. Value. For. Money. The Rixos Royal Spa at Rixos, The Palm Dubai Price Dh490 (of­fer valid un­til Septem­ber) Du­ra­tion 90 min­utes Call 04 457 5415 or email spa.dubai@rixos.com
