Complete with its own private marina and accessible by boat or via a winding driveway, One&Only The Palm might be minutes from the heart of Dubai, but it feels like a million miles away.
Spanning 2,400m2, Guerlain Spa at One&Only The Palm is accessed through a breath-taking courtyard inspired by the architecture of Andalusia’s Moorish palaces, curating a feeling of calm sanctuary.
Hidden by verdant foliage, stone archways carved with intricate Islamic patterns lead the way, beyond a magical enclosed patio with serene water-edged walkways and trickling fountains, to the cloistered inner courtyard.
Alluding to legendary palaces such as Alhambra in Spain where they believed water represented the sensation of heaven on earth, a central pool creates tranquillity and light.
Prior to, or post treatment, guests are invited to use the heat facilities including a steam room and sauna or relax on day beds around the adults-only private pool.
The only Guerlain Spa in the United Arab Emirates, it features individual suits and couples’ suite as well as a relaxation room, private swimming pool and inviting lounge.
A secluded, self-contained couples’ suite complete with hammam facilities, includes a double scrub room and shower, private steam room, two separate soaking baths as well as a private lounge area.
Combining centuries of expertise in the quest for beautiful skin with sheer indulgence, the Parisian beauty house founded in 1828, has designed three bespoke treatments exclusive to One&Only The Palm guests.
Influenced by cutting-edge and ancient techniques from around the world, as well as time-honoured Arabian customs and ingredients only found in the Middle East, the treatments use Guerlain products to deliver outstanding and long-lasting results.
Another first for Dubai, it is the only spa to offer the Guerlain Super Active Facials; three prescriptive treatments starting with an in-depth skin analysis using a Woods Lamp to identify skin conditions not visible to the naked eye.
Performed by hand-selected, highly qualified therapists with products scientifically proven to treat specific ailments or allergies, they deliver immediate and results-driven experiences.
