Luxury spa day at Sofitel The Palm Dubai

After partying hard in Dubai for days, there's nothing better than a luxury spa day to revive and rejuvenate yourself. I love going to different spas and having massages and treatments, so when I visited the So Spa at the Sofitel hotel with my friend Gemma, we knew our day would be amazing.

The spa facilities

The luxury So Spa has excellent facilities including therapeutic pools, a sauna, steam room, hammam and relaxation areas both indoors and outdoors. As soon as I walked in, I could feel myself automatically relaxing and switching off from the world outside. The scent of lavender filled the whole spa area, and the candles and lighting made it feel like I had been transported somewhere far away.

My favourite facilities were the steam room and the outdoor relaxation area. The steam room is so refreshing and makes my skin feel cleansed and soft afterwards. It was great to be able to relax outside after my treatment by the pool, and Gemma and I ordered some lunch which we had outside too.

The treatment

I decided to have a full body massage known as the Polynesian Taurumi Massage which lasted for one hour. My therapist was excellent and she really helped me to relax and unwind during my treatment. The massage included a head massage, as well as head to toe deep tissue massage. I felt very zen afterwards and relaxed by the pool with a cup of herbal tea and some almonds.

I would highly recommend the So Spa at the Sofitel The Palm if you're looking to treat yourself whilst in Dubai.
