Many centuries ago, bathing in the waters of natural hot springs was discovered to be the most beneficial of all treatments for the skin in particular and the body as a whole. The word “Spa” itself means a “Fountain” in Walloon, a language spoken then in Belgium; interestingly, Belgium also has a town named Spa, where a natural hot water spring was discovered in the 14th century.

In Latin, the word “Spa” means to sprinkle or moisten with water. So the traditional Spas had natural thermal waters that were used for curative and therapeutic purposes by the people. It was only in the late 20th century that Spas started evolving across the world; classy accommodation to stay over for a few days was added. Theatres, dancing halls, casinos and promenade were created in the vicinity of the Spa baths. These soon turned into a place to see and be seen in and thus the modern concept of Spa resort was born. While the modern-day Spa resorts may not have a natural thermal spring or a mineral spring, they more than make up for it with several exclusive and luxurious add-ons. 

A Spa resort would often show an amalgamation of unique architecture and facade, distinctive decor and artistic features, all combined in one great location. More often than not, a Spa resort would also exhibit rich history and culture, and would have become the city landmark. For the travellers, staying at a Spa resort would give them an extraordinary experience that would be missing in the regular resorts or hotels. One would often find great talents in music, art and entertainment as well as society A-listers staying in a Spa resort for some much needed rest and recreation. As with all other things in life, Dubai also has some of the most ostentatious and spectacular Spa resorts in the Gulf region. 

Mountains, valleys and ocean shores are the most preferred choice of location for such Spa resorts and in Dubai, you would find some of the best Spa resorts by the beachside. One magnificent example of such Spa resorts would be the Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa in the Crescent Road. The guests can be taken in the view of clear blue lagoons and lush tropical gardens from their Beach Pool Villa rooms, or marvel at the wonders of the sea through the clear glass viewing panel in the floor Over Water Villas – these are built right over the Arabian Gulf.

Fairmont The Palm takes its name after Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made, palm-shaped island. A truly luxurious beachfront resort, it offers excellent views of the Arabian Gulf and Dubai Marina skyline. Crystal-clear pools and a private beach vie for your attention, alongside the traditional architecture and colour palettes that glorify the sun, sand and sea. The Le Royal Meridien at the Jumeirah Beach Residence is another commendable beach resort & Spa, and is situated across JBR beachfront promenade. Along with its three pools, it offers direct access to Dubai’s largest private, white-sand beach and is a blend of contemporary Gulf heritage with European culture.

Known as the jewel of Madinat Jumeirah, Al Qasr means 'The Palace' and this resort hotel truly is the jewel in the crown of Madinat Jumeirah is designed with the look of a Sheikh’s summer residence. You would find the tradition of royal architecture blending with the modernity of finer luxury, as you approach the resort through a tree-lined avenue with sculpted Arabian horses standing by the side.

Atlantis The Palm, is a magnificent ocean-themed resort and hotel that is all about luxury on the man-made island. Spanning across 113 acres of land, Atlantis the Palm has 43 acres of adventures water park alone. The underwater suites at this resort feature most unique bathrooms with floor to ceiling underwater views of the Ambassador Lagoon and all its fascinating creatures.

Ranking among the best desert spas of the world, the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is a testimonial to Dubai's efforts in conservation of heritage. Hidden away in an opulent oasis among Arabia's typical desert dune landscape, the resort is a re-enactment of ancient Bedouin camps. Shaded by traditional tents, the private suites are replete with authentic and rare antiques amidst modern luxuries.   

Similarly, the Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa is a unique resort in the traditional setting of an Arabic fort. Seeming to emerge straight out of the heart of the desert, the Bab Al Shams resort has rooms done up in matching traditional Arabian decor and a genuine, open-air Arabian Desert restaurant.

So while in Dubai, do indulge yourself in a luxurious Spa resort experience – it will convert every moment of your stay into fond memories as you explore the finer things in life that only Dubai can offer.
