ALL ABOUT DAD
Father’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s time to celebrate all those dads, babas, and papas across the UAE! Louise Emma Clarke rounds up the best salon and spa packages to treat him to a little me time
Mark Sunday, June 19, in your diary – it’s Father’s Day. But what do you buy a man of discernible taste? As far as we’re concerned, few things beat the luxury of peace and quiet and one-on-one attention. So skip the cufflinks and tie this year – the surprise of a spa or salon package would be a fab treat even as he rips open his card and tucks into breakfast-in-bed on the big day.
We’ve trawled some of the country’s best spas, salons, and barbershops to find out the perfect pampering packages for Dad.
THE ULTIMATE URBAN DADDY AT SENSASIA URBAN SPA
Price: Dh575 Location: SensAsia at Emirates Golf Club and Palm Jumeirah To book: The treatment can be purchased as gift voucher, either from the spa or as an online e-gift. For information and bookings, call 04 417 9820 (Emirates Golf Club) or 04 422 7115 (the Palm), or visit www.sensasiaspas.com Why Dad will love it: Discounted for Father’s Day, this pampering package includes a 60-minute Knead-It Massage, followed by a 30-minute Gentleman’s Facial. Using deep-tissue techniques, it is the perfect way to relax hard-working, stressed-out Dads, as stubborn knots and areas of tension are kneaded away. With dimmed lighting and relaxing tunes, he can totally zone out as the therapist gets to work. As an added bonus, the facial that follows promises to refresh, revive and rejuvenate his tired skin.
