It’s not often I venture down to the creek and I will be honest and say that the Park Hyatt is a hotel in Dubai, I have never frequented or visited. However, after experiencing the hospitality it has to offer, and the fabulous spa, I am certain I will be back again.
First off, I arrived early before my friend to indulge in a 60-minute Amara massage, which is the Amara Spa’s signature treatment. The spa is beautifully constructed, simple and elegant, with touches of arabesque charm.
After enjoying some of the spas facilities, I was escorted to my massage room, where I was delighted to see something I have never seen before in Dubai’s spa’s, an outdoor area adjoined to my therapy room, whereby clients can enjoy a few minute of cool relaxation having their feet gently washed, whilst listening to the sounds of the desert birds singing. The outdoor area also has a delightful shower that clients can enjoy once their massage is complete. My deep rhythmical massage, together with the Amara signature massage oil, (a sumptuous blend of frankincense, amber and sandalwood) allowed me to drift nicely off to la la land.
60 minutes later I was awoken by my therapist and left to slowly arise from my state of pure Zen. Once ready, I was treated to some fresh tea, dates and fruits and taken to the spa’s relaxation area to rest for a while.
My friend had arrived 30 minutes or so later, so I headed to the lobby to meet her. Once checked in, we were escorted to our room. Our room was spacious, clean and had all Mod cons available, but the bonus point for me was the stand alone, deep set bath and our fabulous balcony with views overlooking the creek. STUNNING.
Once settled, and after a little afternoon siesta, our empty stomachs were growling for some grub, so we headed down to Café Arabesque for iftar. The restaurant hosted a good blend of local Arab and western expats, and as with all iftars, food was plentiful and I was spoilt for choice. I always say my eyes are bigger then my stomach and so these days at any iftar or buffet during the rest of the year, I always try and pace myself and eat food that is similar. I don’t understand these people who pile their plates up with several different types of food i.e.: Indian, Lebanese and sushi :S!
We finished the evening off, by chilling on our balcony, sipping copious amounts of mint tea, enjoying the view, nattering away and discussing details of my forthcoming wedding.
A very relaxing day/night all round and I highly recommend the Park Hyatt Dubai, as a treat for lunch/spa/dinner or for a nights stay on a special occasion.
