Spa Reviews - Ritz-Carlton Spa Dubai

The Ritz-Carlton Spa

The Spa at the Ritz Carlton, for instance, is Bali-themed right down to the very traditional Bureh used in its signature body treatment – The Balinese Bureh. Enter the beautifully Bali-decorated treatment room to find small bowls filled with treatment ingredients including ginger and almonds oils, rice powder and freshly grated ginger and mashed cucumber. My Bali-born and trained therapist Krisna explains that Bureh is a traditional Balinese home remedy and is also used to keep the body warm in the cooler areas of Bali. Accompanying the curative Bureh mask, a Balinese massage, with its long thumb strokes and pressure point work, is the spa version of "thumbing" and is just what this body "kneaded."

Two things that set Dubai spas apart from those in other regions are local laws: one, men clients must have male therapists and women clients female therapists; two, because Muslim women are traditionally not allowed to mix with men who are not their husbands, most spas also have designated "ladies only" areas.
