FOOTSTEPS away from the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf and a discreet enclave that’s part of Doha’s best new luxury hotel address, the Spa and Wellness Centre at Four Seasons Hotel Doha melds elements of traditional local architecture with a touch of Andalusia.
Expansive archways, Romanesque columns and overflowing fountains are complemented by Zen-inspired, minimalist interiors that are based on the five elements of earth, wind, fire, metal and water.
The Spa and Wellness Centre is an integral part of the hotel’s recreation facilities that include a three level grotto pool flanked by fully grown palm trees, sandy beaches, kids pool, family pool and a marina for luxury boats and yachts. The nearby Arabian Gulf is mirrored in the Spa, with the soothing sound of cascading water walls and fountains.
Spanning three elegant storeys, the luxurious Centre offers an integrated range of spa, wellness and beauty treatments, with various fitness components, an emphasis on awareness of the self, and a focus on nutrition.
Spa goers can choose from a menu of signature massage and spa treatments, pampering body wraps and facials using one of the world’s most exclusive and all organic spa products – Sodashi, Sanskrit for wholeness, purity and radiance. Every ingredient used in Sodashi products is 100 per cent natural, pure and unrefined, combining to work with nature’s intelligence to nurture the skin. Sodashi products are ideal for spa goers who have sensitive or problem skin as they are free of chemicals, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances and animal products – even the preservatives used are all natural.
For the ultimate in indulgence guests can choose to book the Spa’s signature treatment. The Five Elements in Harmony with the Seasons, takes guests through the four seasons. Spa goers are also encouraged to make full use of the centre’s expansive Hydrotherapy Lounge, billed the region’s most extensive hydrotherapy hideaway.
The facilities also feature eleven elegant treatment rooms, including two private suites for couples, a colour therapy room to improve health and bring harmony to the physical and mental bodies through the use of colour energy. A beauty salon rounds out the offerings with expert hair styling and beauty services.
At the Après Spa Café guests can complement their days at the Spa with mindfully health conscious cuisine that delights all the senses. Open from 8am to 10pm, it is a great spot to recharge after a treatment.
