Thailand in Dubai

Most newly opened spas are prettty much the same. They smell minty fresh and have that air of sophistication that makes you feel like all your troubles will be whisked away within an hour of a holistic treatment.
Of course most people, myself included, like to indulge in that feeling of total bliss.
After a very hectic month of far too many things on my to-do list, I booked a signature massage at the newly opened Orchid Palace Wellness Spa.

The spa is located on the 8th floor of Yassat Gloria hotels and apartments. The convenience of the location just makes it ideal. If traveling by the metro, just get off the Dubai Internet City stop and cross the small road from Dubai Tecom. The building is on Sheikh Zayed Road.
In no time the smell of lavender and mandarin transforms your world and a sea of smiling faces greet you in Thai.

Excuse the bragging rights, but having reviewed quite a few spas from the one at the Burj Al Arab to Six Senses Spa, one always wonders how long new spas will last in a bustling city like Dubai. Something tells me The Orchid will go a long way for its sheer commitment to using authentic Thai products. Everything is sourced from natural ingredients. The mandarin infused shampoo and conditioner and natural oils indicate a care for finer details. 

The Orchid Aroma Bliss signature treatment, which I took, combines the best in Eastern aromatic oils and western body massage techniques. Carefully applied pressure works to stimulate your nervous system. A 60-minute massage costs Dhs 240.
The spa is open for both men and women.
