Re­boot your skin at Ad­dress Down­town

Di­a­monds and roses at Ad­dress Down­town, plus six new spas for you to try

With Dubai’s tem­per­a­tures reach­ing 45°C the past few weeks, sun dam­age cou­pled with de­hy­dra­tion are ev­er­p­re­sent skin risks. But the re­cently-opened The Spa at Ad­dress Down­town has a new treat­ment it claims will com­bat that – the Di­a­mond Ex­pe­ri­ence Rose Rit­ual. The 90-minute treat­ment is in­tended to re­vi­talise and hy­drate skin as well as make it silky and smooth.

The treat­ment rooms at The Spa are light and airy, with re­lax­ation aided by cool tem­per­a­tures and sooth­ing mu­sic. We kicked off with our ther­a­pist spritz­ing rose wa­ter to get our body ready for ex­fo­li­a­tion. Next, we were del­i­cately ex­fo­li­ated with a scrub that in­cluded damask rose and di­a­mond dust fol­lowed by a di­a­mond mist spray to close pores on the body. We were then mas­saged with di­a­mond rose oil, the aim be­ing to re­lease ten­sion and re­move lin­ger­ing sweat. The rose oil in par­tic­u­lar is said to help with sun dam­age. The fi­nal part of the treat­ment was the ap­pli­ca­tion of rose touch to make the skin smoother and softer.

So, does it work? What’s On’s skin did feel softer – al­though those with sun dam­aged or very de­hy­drated skin may see a more no­tice­able dif­fer­ence. But we’d prob­a­bly head back purely for its luxe of­fer­ing and hos­pitable ther­a­pists. Granted, there’s no short­age of ul­tra-lux spas in the UAE but The Spa could well take the crown of be­ing one of the most lux­u­ri­ous our team have vis­ited, thanks to its pri­vate re­lax­ation ar­eas and Burj Khalifa views.
