Tirta Spa Dubai
Reviewing the famous Tirta Spa in Dubai
A real sanctuary, ‘Tirta Spa’ is what Dubai has long been waiting for; a separate spa destination for a day of pampering and relaxation that feels like a little retreat to an island getaway. Located at Jumeirah 1 Dubai, Tirta Spa is the branch of Tirta Spa Boracay Philippines – a multi award winning destination loved by celebrities, VIPs and social influencers from around the planet.
Decorated with subtle exotic elements the spa instantly wraps you up with its soothing and warm setting. Laden with beautiful furniture with artistically designed wicker sofas (fit for queens) the airy reception area speaks volume of the spa’s offerings. With hordes of awards to brag, Tirta no wonder has the expertise that exudes perfection when it comes to the spa treatment.
Two hours of total bliss
With an intent to explore every aspect of the famed Spa. I booked myself for the signature treatment… Finding my way to the spa was easy as it was directly behind Emirates Islamic Bank on the main Jumeirah beach road. As I entered the spa, I was greeted warmly by the obliging staff, which felt like an instant transportation from a world of chaos to a world of luxury and relaxation. Next, I was asked to fill a form to highlight any health concerns and was introduced with two options of oils for the treatment; Carrot seed oil and Mandarin Oil. I picked up the Carrot Seed Oil. After the oil was selected I was introduced to my well-experienced Masseuse (an experienced employee of the Spa from the Philippines) who took me upstairs to yet another little haven, the treatment room.
My signature treatment started with a small foot spa ritual. The Masseuse then gently struck the gong thrice to release and ward off all the bad energy. Quite literally I felt that I have stepped out from disorder into a zone that is quiet and comforting. The treatment then started with a full body scrub which lasted for one hour. Scrubbing, although makes you feel muggy but the delicious lavender smell kept reminding me of the amazing results to look forward to. Once the scrubbing was over the masseuse guided me to the steam room to let the scrub emulsify and get absorbed into the skin. A good 15 minutes inside the steam room not just worked wonders on the skin but also opened up my blocked sinuses…
The second part of the signature treatment was massage, so immediate after steam room and shower I got ready for the best part of any spa. The massage was the traditional Philippines cultural Hilot massage, which is considered to have healing properties for various illnesses. 60 minutes of massage was all I needed for the past one year of work and stress. The proficient hand movement of the masseuses literally relived my muscles of the strains I’ve been carrying with me for some time. In a very metaphysical sense, I felt some kind of burden was slowly being lifted from my body and instantly I started to feel the lightness from within me.
After two hours of total relaxation, I was ready to step out of the trance like comfort I was in. With a renewed sense of lightheartedness and rejuvenation, I felt confident and more focused than before.
The Spa Tour
After the treatment, I wanted to have a quick tour of the property, so I went exploring. All the treatment rooms are on the first floor. There are three treatment rooms for massage, two rooms for individual treatments. One is quintessentially decorated with Japanese motifs and the other displays the vivid beauty of the Far East with carefully added décor elements. The third room is a dedicated twin room for ladies, especially good if you want to have a pampering day escorted by your bestie, your aunt or sister or none other but your mom… The twin room is a visual pleasure paradise, decorated in colorful hues to make you feel like a queen from the orient…
Tirta” is the Hindu word for “Holy Water“. The gates open to reveal a sacred paradise enveloping the spiritual healing powers of water and a private path that will take you on the road to relaxation, rejuvenation, restoration, and renewal. A vision of the Spa Director, Ms. En Calvert, who whimsically followed her passion, a desire to provide an oasis for people wanting to regain balance in their lives, Tirta Spa Dubai totally lives up to the mark, with immaculate surroundings, experienced staff who love what they do and holistic treatments and therapies designed for the specific needs of an individual client.
