Zen experience on East Coast

FOR a true getaway from city life, try a visit to the Fujairah Rotana Resort and Spa nestled between the Hajar Mountains and the Indian Ocean.
This five star beachfront secluded retreat features tropical landscaped gardens, a bright cool reception area, outside pool pub and specialised restaurants as well as a gloriously long beach.
One of the prime features of the hotel is the Zen Spa. Spa manager Sandrine Bertrand originally from France, took the position at the Zen Spa Rotana just over a year ago as she wanted the challenge of opening a new spa.
She built up a multinational team alllowing different cultures to combine their own treatments and ideas and so formulate the best for the spa’s clients.
They created their own rituals in the wet area, which is complimentary to all massage treatments booked at the spa. Treatments include massages, facials, body scrubs, wraps and enhancers, Zen serenity suite packages in the private lounge which includes a Jacuzzi, shower and bathroom, the wet, cold and heat area and customised packages to suit individual tastes.
Part of the treatment at the spa is also to educate and advise clients on further ways to keep healthy and relax.
The 250 room resort also offers a hair salon, shuttle bus service to Fujairah City and Dubai, conference facilities, a ballroom and a private beach with tropical thatched umbrellas, a temperature controlled swimming pool and luxury beach side massage cabanas overlooking the sea.
