In a nutshell
A Polynesian themed retreat on the Palm
The signature So Exhilarating massage costs Dhs500 for 50 minutes
With its lush greenery and Polynesian themed interior (including an indoor hydrotherapy pool), the So Spa is a hidden oasis on the Palm.
On our wish list
The Amethyst and Volcanic Stone Massage (Dhs850 for 90 minutes) uses hot stones to knead out tension and unblock your body’s energy, while a gentle facial massage using amethysts improves relaxation and detoxifies the skin.
The So Spa has a ongoing ladies’ night deal on Tuesdays from 6pm to 10pm, when you get to choose from a range of treatments including a back massage and file and polish, then make use of the spa facilities for Dhs250. For an extra Dhs75, you get three glasses of prosecco at Porterhouse after your spa evening.
