Emirates Hotels in spa focus

Emirates Hotels and Resorts has tied up with Sodashi for its luxurious and world-renowned brand of spa treatments and products, adding a fresh facet to Dubai’s lifestyle and hospitality industry.
Sodashi products and treatments will soon be available at Emirates Hotels and Resorts’ Timeless Spas, initially at Emirates Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa and Emirates Marina Hotel & Residence, which is due to open in September 2007. The Sodashi range will then be rolled out at all Emirates’ luxury Timeless Spas, complementing its existing Babor range of products and treatments.

Guests at Emirates Hotels and Resorts range of properties can now choose between Sodashi and Babor treatments based on their preferences and product’s applications. Professional staff with extensive experience are on hand at the Timeless Spas to advise guests of the best treatment for their skin-types, skin-conditions and needs. The products are also available for purchase at the properties, enabling guests to carry home the memory of a blissful time.

Produced in Australia, Sodashi treatments and products are natural and considered the purest spa brand in the world.  Its entire range of formulations draws upon the regenerative power of plants, herbs, marine algae extracts and precious essential oils. An ancient Sanskrit term that translates to “wholeness, purity and radiance”, Sodashi is a lavish, organic skincare and body-care line with a no-expense-spared philosophy.  It caters to both genders, all age groups, and is ideal for frequent flyers and those with a hectic lifestyle as the products have anti-ageing, purifying, hydrating, revitalising and balancing properties.

Tony Williams, Vice President Resorts & Projects at Emirates Hotels & Resorts said: “The Timeless Spa at our flagship property Emirates Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa has been incredibly successful and continues to receive accolades for enhancing our guests’ experience. Through the Timeless Spa in each of our properties we intend to make Dubai an important city on the world’s spa and lifestyle map.

He added: “Both Babor and Sodashi create a synergy with their brand management and unique appeal. While Babor’s leadership in the traditional spa market is undisputed and we are extremely happy with their product range, support and service, Sodashi complements it and offers a very fresh approach.  We are also working with Sodashi to develop signature products for our Timeless Spas and an exclusive range for our guests.”


Sodashi’s exclusive range will be launched at Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa in Australia when it opens its doors in 2008.

Megan Larsen, Founder of Sodashi said, “We are delighted to be working with Emirates Timeless Spas as they share our commitment to quality and understand the importance of using 100 per cent natural products.”

Both, Sodashi and Babor, are exclusive to spa owners and spa consultants, and are unavailable at any retail outlet. In partnership with Babor, Emirates Al Maha has developed its own range of exclusive treatments using traditional frankincense and date extracts, known for their recuperative and relaxation properties.
