Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
