Caracalla Spa at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, Dubai is a winning spa in more ways than one. Winner of the Middle East’s Leading Spa Resort, 2004 from the World Travel Awards, this spa offers hand-on relaxation in a blue-ribbon environment.
Designed in the style of ancient Rome, Caracalla takes its inspiration
from the Antonine Baths, considered that city’s most luxurious public
baths in the third century AD.
In 21st century Dubai, the complex at Le Royal Meridien Beach Club and Spa
takes guests and visitors a world away from it all, where flickering
candles offer an intimate atmosphere, aromatic lotions sooth the senses
and everything from the fleecy towels to the hushed tones of the
therapists contributes to the sense of well-being and pampered luxury.The menu is tempting: from a reviving facial to body glow treatments and
aromatherapy massage, plus more practical cellulite and lymphatic drainage
treatments and face and body waxing.
And it’s not just for the ladies.
Other treatments include men’s grooming facials, muscle warming sports
massages and de-stress aromatherapy.
As part of the spa package, there are also separate men’s and ladies’
sauna, steam and Jacuzzi facilities, plus a central unisex Hammam with
five plunge pools set in a Romanesque atrium complete with draped statues,
potted plants and subtle lighting.
Additional facilities at the new club include a large gym with Gulf views
and ranks of Nautilus resistance and StarTrac cardio machines; a separate
aerobics studio, juice bar and changing rooms with direct access to the
resort’s pools and beach area.
