Imagine a place that allows you to close your eyes and feel you are in a far away paradise, surrounded by lapping waves and natural, flowered scents. This is exactly how you feel the minute you walk into Taj Dubai’s Jiva Spa. With the busy Business Bay as its backdrop, Taj Dubai is known for its outstanding luxury and guest experience, with the stunning Jiva Spa adding to their strong reputation even further.
Inspired by the ancient Indian approach to wellness, everything at Jiva Spa encourages a healthy lifestyle and happy soul, from the healing essential oils they use to the complimentary beaded necklace given to guests to promote peace and happiness. With a strong belief that a holistic way of life allows you to nurture yourself from the inside out and embrace your spirituality, here you can truly escape the hustle and bustle of the outside city and fully rejuvenate your soul.
Greeted with a warm smile and a freshly brewed cup of healthy tea, the interiors of the spa are impressive, yet understated. With only four individual treatment rooms and a couple’s suite, it gives off more of a boutique vibe, which is perfectly reflected in their personalised approach to wellness. Their signature massages are tailored to suit your body’s needs, whether you are looking to work out tired muscles or a chance to de-stress.
The beautifully designed treatment rooms include private shower and restroom facilities, as well as a warm, towel-enveloped bed inviting you to relax. After a soothing foot cleanse, your treatment can commence. With a number of signature massages on offer, all focusing on different Indian wellbeing techniques, you will feel lighter with every movement.
The all-natural oils used, which are made from Indian herbs, essential aromatherapy oils and special ingredients, conjure up thoughts of a faraway place, while the soothing tones of the music really ensure you feel your worries slipping away. The massage techniques are drawn from the rich and ancient wellness traditions of India, helping your muscle tensions release, as your circulation improves and your spirit is reinvigorated.
For those looking for something other than a massage, their impressive menu of facial and body treatments will not disappoint. Each treatment and experience has been carefully crafted to initiate physical, mental and spiritual equilibrium and leave guests in a state of blissful tranquility. A trip to the spa’s sauna or steam room after your treatment will ensure your body and mind are fully refreshed.
By treating yourself to an experience at Jiva Spa, you are thanking your body and giving back to your soul. Located in the heart of our busy city, this really is an oasis of peace and harmony, somewhere to escape our hectic lives and reboot our minds. As you leave Jiva Spa, the only thing you will be thinking about is your next visit.
