If you’d rather have the ex­perts giv­ing you a dose of hygge in a re­lax­ing at­mos­phere, these treat­ments are guar­an­teed to leave you feel­ing cosy.

Get a dose of the real thing at the LivNordic Spa at the Cayan Tower in Dubai Ma­rina – it fo­cuses en­tirely on Nordic well-be­ing. They have a host of Scan­di­na­vian-style ther­apy pack­ages, all with Swedish names that will make you feel in­stantly hygge. Stilla (mean­ing ‘calm’) in­cludes a mind­ful mas­sage, blue­berry body wrap and a scalp, hand and foot mas­sage for Dh685. Ren (mean­ing clean) in­cludes a birch body scrub, detox mas­sage and cup­ping for Dh780. Djup (mean­ing deep) in­cludes a cran­berry body scrub, Swedish deep mas­sage and face rit­ual (Dh585). If you don’t fancy a full treat­ment, try the Nordic Bathing Rit­ual (Dh100) for two hours of al­ter­nat­ing be­tween hot saunas and cold baths, dry brush­ing and self­ap­plied or­ganic prod­ucts to make you feel bliss­fully re­laxed. You can also try the bathing be­fore or after a spa treat­ment for the ul­ti­mate Nordic ex­pe­ri­ence. Once you’re done re­lax­ing, brighten your com­plex­ion with a Nordic Clas­sic Fa­cial (Dh400). The ther­a­pist uses The Or­ganic Phar­macy prod­ucts to com­bat age­ing. You can up­grade the treat­ment with fa­cial cup­ping for an ex­tra boost. (04 551 6414.)

Else­where, check out Vani­day for a lux­u­ri­ous treat­ment known as the Nordic Na­ture Jour­ney; en­joy a body scrub, 45-minute body mas­sage, acu­pres­sure face mas­sage and body wrap. This 90-minute treat­ment is avail­able at the Shine Spa at the Sher­a­ton Grand Ho­tel on Shaikh Zayed Road for Dh795, and when booked through the Vani­day app, there’s a 20 per cent cash­back – so you can ac­crue Dh159 to spend on an­other treat­ment.
