Award winning luxury in spa form? Sounds like our kind of thing…

You know you’re doing well when not one, not two, but three of your spas win awards from the World Luxury Spa Awards. Good job, Jumeirah Group! The global luxury hotel company and member of Dubai Holding boasts (amongst many other equally as deserving establishments) the now award-winning Assawan Spa, Talise Ottoman Spa and Talise Spa; three examples that have “raised the bar of service excellence within a highly competitive industry”.

Located in the stunning Jumeirah Zabeel Saray hotel, Talise Ottoman Spa has been declared the winner of Best Luxury Resort Spa. With an incredible selection of treatments, hydrotherapy rooms, steam rooms, saunas, thalassotherapy pools, floating baths and even snow rooms(!), it’s not hard to see why. Unsurprisingly, it has also won ‘UAE’s Leading Spa Resort’ at The World Travel Awards for two years running.

Simultaneously cleanse your body and your chakras at the Assawan Spa (pictured above). Bathed in natural light and situated on the 18th floor of the now iconic Burj Al Arab, the spa holds the title of Best Luxury Hotel Spa. Personally, we’re very keen on gazing out across the Arabian Gulf from the fourth tallest building in the world. Sign us up for the panoramic infinity pools!

Jumeirah Dhevanafushi in the Maldives is home to Talise Spa; winner of Best Luxury Emerging Spa. Presumably referring to the fact that the spa is essentially emerging from the Indian Ocean (well – sitting atop it to be exact!) Talise is incredibly tranquil. Treatments focus on holistic wellbeing and self-discovery; enlightening guests on how to maintain the perfect physical, mental and spiritual balance. Sounds bloody ideal doesn’t it?


PLEASE NOTE: Browsing Jumeirah’s site is likely to result in the booking of one (or several) spas featured. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
