After spending a few hours at the pool, we went to Al Raha Beach Hotel’s resident spa, Body and Sole, for a scheduled couple’s massage. We were booked for a Deep Muscle Relief treatment for a much needed rejuvenation of the body.
Located at the 3rd level of the hotel, Body & Soul offers guests a holistic approach to mind and body with exclusive therapies to choose from. The spa is a huge recreational space that provides a complete offering to relax and revitalize both men and women. Aside from massage treatments, they also offer facials, body wraps, body scrubs, hand and foot care.

Arriving at the spa, the staff advised to got the locker rooms so we could change into bathrobes already prepared inside our assigned lockers. They also have new rubber flip-flops but I didn’t use them as I was already wearing my own.
After changing, we went to the common area where detox refreshments already awaited us. We signed a form to note some basic health points which is a prerequisite in established spas.

They advise that you arrive 30 minutes prior to treatment so you can bask in the peacefulness and serenity of the facilities offered for their guests.
The spa has an indoor temperature-controlled pool, separate locker rooms for men and women with each having a steam & sauna, and Jacuzzi.

Our room was simple and basic, with two massage tables already set up. We had a deep tissue treatment. Just what we needed as it’s been quite some time since we had a massage.
Our therapists, Montha and Anne, were very professional and knew what they were doing to relieve tension in our muscles. I fell asleep in the middle of it. My wife did too.

After the massage, we went back to the wet area so we could relax and have some tea. Among the massage experiences with Danat hotels, this has got to be our best experience yet.
If you’re a guest and you want to experience a massage session, better book in advance to reserve a slot.
