Banish the working week, forget those inner city blues and retreat to spa bliss at LIME Spa, a serene and intimate sanctuary hidden in the palm-filled, 160-acre estate of the luxurious Desert Palm PER AQUUM.
With six spa suites overlooking the polo fields, the tranquil spa is well known for its soothing array of rituals for the face and body, while couples too, are promised indulgence à deux with a new “Spa Getaway” package that includes a number of pampering treatments, afternoon tea, accommodation and a gourmet breakfast, starting from just Dhs 1,650 ($450).
Take an afternoon to disappear with your better half into the couple’s treatment room, where you will be spoiled with an Intuitive Massage for two followed by a LIME Refresh facial. Spa-going can work up an appetite, so post-treatment, why not enjoy an authentic afternoon tea overlooking the polo fields?
Desert Palm PER AQUUM’s Jewel Afternoon tea is the height of elegance, with French pastries, delicate finger sandwiches and warm scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, all served from traditional three-tiered stands.
Whether you hit the town that evening or make the most of your leisurely stay relaxing in the surrounds of your private suite or villa is up to you, but one thing is certain: after a sumptuous breakfast at poolside brasserie, Epicure, the following morning, you will leave calm, refreshed and utterly rejuvenated.
