Opened just a few months ago, The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club is expanding its offerings to guests with the opening of Iridium Spa – the second of its kind in Dubai. Using natural products from ESPA, the wellness haven features six treatments rooms comprised of two female treatment rooms, two male treatment rooms, and two couples spa suites, spa-goers will also have access to a steam room, sauna, well-equipped gym and an expansive pool area.
Signature treatments take inspiration from the polo-themed hotel with experiences such as “The Equestrian Spa Journey”, a 90-minute session that begins with a grounding foot ritual before moving onto traditional massage combined with bespoke equestrian massage techniques inspired a horse’s walk, trot and canter, to aid in releasing tension from the body. Those feeling a bit saddle sore can opt for the 60-minute “Rider’s Relief”, a combination of massage and stretching techniques that result in soothed and relaxed muscles.
After the massage has lulled guests into a state of bliss, they can nibble on light bites from the spa which will include healthy treats such as vitamin-packed smoothies and juices, marinated tropical fruits, roasted pumpkin soup and alpine bircher muesli, seasonal berries and toasted almonds.
In the quiet summer months, now’s the ideal time to test the new spa out – especially with the Iridium Spa grand opening offer which includes AED100 off any treatment booked now until December. And keep your eyes open for more luxuries to be announced from the polo resort – rumour has it that the property’s Royal Suites are very near to completion.
