5 Dubai Hammams Spas to Try Out

Spreader of Warmth

1

Al Asalla Spa

Al Asalla Spa

Located at Dubai Ladies Club on Jumeirah Beach Road, this spa is quite spacious in its interior, which can take you by surprise. The interior if the place is rather relaxing if a little dated, and the hammam is extremely private and spotless in its cleanliness. The therapists at Al Asalla Spa are used to the initial awkwardness that comes with a hammam spa, that they are quite genteel and kind in their kind-aunt attitude. This will definitely put you at ease within seconds.
The body scrub of Al Asalla is extensive, with maximum care given to ensure that each and every spot is treated the same. The therapist usually inquires your comfortableness with the level of pressure applied. As an added bonus, the Royal Hammam treatment at this spa provides you with a hair wash and mask, olive oil soap cleansing and a full body mask of honey and yoghurt. At the end of it all, you will be escorted to a freezing shower room so that the pores that were opened during the process has time to close before you venture out.

Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa

Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa

If you are into golf and relaxation, it would be the ideal spa to try out, after a session of golf. The hammam of this resort is a gigantic steam room that has two large stone slabs. The ceiling of the space is a dome that is adorned with colourful lights and alluring lanterns, which create a uniquely authentic atmosphere as well as an experience.
If you are travelling as a couple, or would like to experience the finer things in life together, Jabel Ali Spa is one place that offers hammam for couples. An interesting facility of this particular spa is the use of an exfoliating glove by the therapist, which you can take home once the treatment is done. The glove feels refreshingly invigorating and does quite a good job of removing dead skin. Post hammam treatment in Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa leaves nothing to be desired: you are allowed to relax in a whirlpool bath, given a ginger body mask, a honey face mask, a full-body massage and a head massage. By taking up a 90-minute long Royal Hammam treatment at this spa, you would emerge glowing.

Saray Spa

Saray Spa

Located at the Marriott Harbour Hotel which is walking distance from Ascott Park Place Dubai, a Luxury Serviced Apartment in Dubai, the spa has East Asian vibes as opposed to Middle Eastern or Greek, where the treatment originated. These vibes create a different experience in the spa atmosphere but is quite relaxing in its nature.
Hammam takes place in an isolated room where you are alone with your therapist. However, the steam room at the spa is shared. The scrubbing at Saray spa is quite thorough, spreading from between toes to behind ears. They pay special attention to the products used, so be prepared to be soaked and scrubbed with carefully chosen soaps as well as coconut cream. The effect of these special products is almost instantaneous. You will be glowing in a matter of minutes. Once the main treatment is over, you are given the option of selecting the massage you desire from a wide variety of massages. This ability to customize, or have a say in your post-hammam treatment is one special feature of Saray Spa.

Heavenly Beauty Salon and Spa

Heavenly Beauty Salon and Spa

Located down Safa Road in Jumeirah, Heavenly Beauty Salon and Spa is a relatively new venture to the hammam field. The hammam treatment area is light and airy, while the treatment rooms are dark and steamy. This is perfect for those with modesty issues, as semi-darkness would help to alleviate any awkwardness. The therapists at the salon and spa are friendly and always up for a chat, which can help you relax even further.
The exfoliation process at Heavenly is known for its lack of pain. They also use a ginger moisturiser in their post-hammam massage treatment. However, unlike most hammam treatments, Heavenly's Moroccan Bath is only 75 minutes in duration.

Sisters Beauty Lounge

Sisters Beauty Lounge

Located inside the Dubai Mall, this is a place where rooms are private and hammam is steamy but lack any distinct personality in terms of interior. Their therapists, too, are known to be friendly and chatty, although attuned to your responses enough to know when silence is required. The lounge uses exfoliation gloves too and uses the perfect amount of pressure for exfoliation.
Post-hammam treatment at Sisters Beauty lounge includes a plastic cocoon wrap with fragrant lathers and a scalp, head and body massage. While their ladies-only full hammam treatment lasts up to two hours, the price for the treatment varies according to the size of the client.
