I LOVE trying out different spa’s, I mean who doesn’t? I got the chance to get a treatment done at the spa in Ritz Carlton located in JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence). I’ve been to the spa before for a work event, but I never had an actual treatment done. Today I tried out the “Diamond Rose Ritual Treatment” which is a body scrub + massage.
I’m the worst massage client because I get bored really quickly – I’ve got zero patience. So, I was a bit worried that I would get bored during the 90 minutes treatment. The duration of the scrub was around 40 minutes as well as the massage. The other 10 minutes I spent showering and dressing etc. I’m personally a really big fan of body scrubs, I think it’s important for everyone to do it once in a while (no matter the skin type). It helps to circulate the blood pressure and it removes any dead skin – not to mention, the skin feel silky smooth after a scrub! My therapist lady was Shelby and she was really good & friendly. Luckily I didn’t get bored, I quite enjoyed the entire treatment. It was overall a good experience, I loved the treatment and the stunning spa facilities. Ryadh (my hubby), did a 90 minutes Balinese massage which is a high pressure treatment that includes a lot of stretching. If anyone cares about his opinion, he really enjoyed it – LOL.
The spa is a great place to spend the day after a long, busy week either with your spouse, friends or by yourself. Every Saturday they have an amazing barbeque brunch at Palm Grill Restaurant which is located on the private beach area of the hotel. They serve grilled seafood and meat, plus there’s an amazing live music performance. It’s a very casual environment where you can enjoy the food in your beach clothes and walk bare footed (Maldives style).
Lemon & mint juice as a welcoming drink
Hot & cold bath in the ladies section of the spa, the men’s section have the exact same facilities including; steam room, sauna, showers & relaxing rooms.
The Rooftop Spa Pool is a beautiful place to relax and unwind after the treatment. The interior design made me feel like I was in Marrakech. The entire spa is separate for men and women except for the rooftop spa pool.
These were the 2 products used for the treatment. They smell amazing! I loved the scrub, it really made my skin super soft and smooth.
Detox water & fruit salad after the treatment
If you’re looking for something relaxing to do during the festive holidays, I definitely recommend checking out the spa at the Ritz Carlton hotel JBR.
