Pamper Me | An escape in to the Desert Palm #LimeSpaME
It’s hard scheduling “me time” with my current work load, so whenever I find a moment to pause, I try to make every second worth it. Last weekend, I beat the odds and scored 4 whole hours of downtime, so I packed my day bag and headed to the Lime Spa at the Desert Palm hotel. This hotel property is one of Dubai’s finest hidden gems, a unique resort is nestled amidst lush polo fields with, dotted with cosy private pool villas, chic restaurants and of course The Lime Spa, my destination for the day.
On entering the hotel, I was immediately charmed by the intuitive design choices, bespoke furniture made from carved wood, sleek glass trimmings and walls lined with beautiful equestrian paintings. I booked myself in for half a day of the “Pamper Me” treatment which is described as the “the ultimate me time” and you know what? It was. I arrived at the facility an hour earlier to my booking to fully immerse myself in the Spa offerings. I did everything from steaming up in the sauna to cooling down in the freezing plunge pool and the warming right back up on hot spa bed with a view of the polo fields.
My treatment options were a 75-minutes Eminence facial or a 60-mins full body massage, it was a no-brainer for me, I went for the massage. As fitness blogger, I train at least 5 times a week (sometimes more) so I’ll take a massage anywhere I can get one. Although, the facial did sound pretty good too, 75 mins of face pampering? Surely you had no option but to leave the spa looking like a goddess after that? However, half an hour into my massage and I knew I made the right choice for me.
Not only was my therapist friendly and accommodating, but she also paid attention to detail, suggesting the right oils and applying added pressure in my tension areas. The treatment room in itself, was super relaxing with dimmed lights, warm furnishings and the aromatic scent of perfumed oils, it was pure bliss.
After my massage, I was treated to lunch at Epicure which was included in the package. I ate my tomato soup and chicken salad in a private cabana with view of the stunning infinity pool. It was everything I wanted from “me time”, intimate, relaxing and lush, the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday Dubai life.
