Personal grooming with a difference


Natural décor and ingredients are key to Retreat health and spa, the personal grooming and spa floor recently opened at Grosvenor House at Dubai Marina.

According to hotel GM, Pam Wilby, the new facility has been designed to cater to current requirements for organic health products as well as fast track treatments for the time-pressed executive of today.
“Both hotel and apartment guests and Dubai residents will appreciate the grouping of hair, nail, spa and health facilities on one floor, and we expect the 55-minute spa special to become a popular choice for those whose busy schedules leave little time to spare for relaxing leisure,” she said. “But, for those on a less pressured agenda, the introduction of Middle Eastern Rasul treatments will be welcome, particularly given the health-giving properties of muds and steam in cleansing the system.”
As well as seven treatment rooms, all named after flowers and decorated with rock and blossom features to provide a focal point for those undergoing treatments, Retreat health & Spa includes N.Bar for nailcare, Dubai’s second 1847, a dedicated men’s treatment centre, plus the new concept hair bar, specialising in all types of cuts, curls and tints. In addition, a juice bar serves healthy snacks, smoothies and other drinks.
“With the opening of Retreat health and spa, we are adding another name to the impressive roster of spa facilities available in Dubai, but the difference at Grosvenor House is that we also offer beauty and health treatments tailored to the needs of residents too, or anyone that needs a quick fix for their personal grooming requirements,” added Wilby. “We know that more than 90 per cent of travellers seek out spas overseas when they are at leisure, but people are generally restricted by time pressures at home – and it’s here we can fill that gap.”
