“The devil is in the details” seems to be the motto at the Willow Stream Spa in Fairmont the Palm. It never fails to impress me when I can see the care taken in thinking of everything a visitor may or may not need during their time at the spa.
Other than the obvious and expected elements such as incredibly hospitable staff, beautiful surroundings and flawless facilities (mood showers, steam rooms, sauna etc), what really caught my eye was the small additions provided in the wet area. For example, mouthwash at every wash basin, a variety of hairstyling products, and in my opinion, the pièce de resistance- GHD brushes and styling tools at the drying station! Dramatic? Perhaps. Amazing? Absolutely!
My treatment of choice was the Willow Stream Elements experience, a luxurious 90 minute ritual that incorporates each of the four elements: earth, fire, air and water. The journey began with a medicinal moor-mud wrap (earth) to detoxify and exfoliate the skin. As the body mask worked its magic, my therapist treated me to a mini brightening and softening facial. This was followed by a glorious 15 minute soak in a bubbly mineral bath (water) and finally a warm massage (fire) with aromatic juniper oil (air) to relax the muscles, stimulate the senses and hydrate the skin.
Post-massage, I was treated to herbal tea in the relaxation lounge, where guests are welcome to read the endless fashion magazines on offer, nibble on healthy homemade snacks and take in the sea view. The spa is offering a new three month membership option for both men and women for 1,890 AED which includes an exceptional variety of spa treatments, beach day-passes, discounts on dining and beauty salon services as well as Kerstin Florian beauty products. With this new membership concept, the treatments and beach passes come in the form of vouchers which you have the freedom to redeem or share with friends and family. So considerate!
Keep an eye out for the hotel’s other monthly special offers.
