Pure bliss at Four Seasons spa in Cairo
The Four Seasons Cairo at The First Residence Spa and Wellness Centre is not only a place to find peace while embracing both the inner and outer self, it’s an experience out of the ordinary.
The spa offers a range of traditional treatments and a selection of unique offers, many of them drawing on traditional Egyptian holistic philosophy.
For eternal youth, Queen Cleopatra used to take milk baths which had a wonderful effect on her skin. Today, the treatment named after her will do the same for you. Or try a Pharaonic Massage, a luxurious treatment which would once have been reserved for Egyptian royalty. A highly-qualified therapist massages the body with individually chosen Egyptian aromatic oils. The spa also looked to the Far East for inspiration and introduced some specialised techniques. From Bali comes a massage which uses a blend of coconut and basil essential oils. A Thai massage, which dates back to ancient times and has its roots in yoga relaxation techniques, is another item on the menu.
“Cairo is such a cosmopolitan city that it is only right we introduce special therapies and treatments form around the world,” said Nada Ismail, the spa’s director.
