We had a luxurious couple massage session at Swissotel Sport & Spa in Swissotel Al Ghurair. The spa is located at the fifth floor, which is in the same level as the fitness center and the swimming pool of the five star property.
Swissotel Spa & Sport has over 8 treatment rooms and one couple suite. They provide a range of treatments which include massage, body scrub, and facial. Upon arriving, they were already expecting us. I’m glad that we got in early so we could enjoy settle in the spa facilities before our treatment.

The spa has a separate wet area for men and women with each having a jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath facilities.
Tip: When you book a massage session in hotels in the UAE, it is always best to come early so you can enjoy the spa facilities available for its patrons.

The place is properly lit and has very high ceilings. I noticed that the spa takes their space and service seriously as it helps promote a sense of well-being. Even if outside may showcase the busy side of Old Dubai, inside the spa, you will feel the tranquility.
Before our spa therapy, they had us fill out a form to indicate which areas we wanted to have focus on. This is good as it is kept professional and to lessen conversations during the session.

My treatment was handled by Ezzat and he managed it well. Our Aromatherapy massage started with us having to take a deep breath with some menthol aroma to set the mood for relaxation. The therapists helped in easing the tension on my shoulders and back (the areas I requested to prioritize).
Upon turning around, they placed a cover for the eyes and inserted a hot thermal towel at the back of my neck and underneath my legs. It really made the session even more peaceful that I believe I dozed off a bit. The 1 hour went by quickly and we felt relaxed overall.

It’s good to know that the outdoor pool and indoor gym is accessible in the same level at the spa. It’s strategically located to promote a total wellness and fitness experience for its guests.
If you plan to visit the spa and have a massage session, please make sure you book in advance so you can make your reservation.
