In a nutshell
An ornate spa in the St Regis that feels like a room in a luxury manor
The signature bespoke massage costs Dhs590 for 60 minutes
If the Great Gatsby was (a) living in Dubai and (b) in need of a massage, the Iridium Spa is probably where he’d go. Decadent and stylish, it boasts separate areas for men and women, with six treatment zones, two hammams and a chic relaxation facility called the Iridium Room.
On our wish list
Undo the damage of endless Dubai sunshine with the Precious Cell Repair Facial (Dhs2,600), which uses vitamin C to stimulate collagen production, brighten the complexion and firm the skin.
From February 9 to 19, have a side-byside 60-minute couples menu in the double treatment room, followed by spa tea or ‘spatinis’ in the Iridium Room, for Dhs1,180 per couple.
