Calm, minimalist and intimate, the waiting area at The Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician is just the right size and perfectly soothing to the eyes after the richly colored green grass of the golf courses outside. After heading down the outdoor staircase and past the native plants and potted trees, you’ll find yourself opposite the reception desk, where you will be greeted immediately and escorted into the men’s or women’s locker room. This is a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa with a purpose — getting you deep into relaxation in one of the treatment rooms — and the waiting area is just the right introduction. You won’t be wandering the halls here or wondering if you’re in the right place. From the moment you walk in, your brain will quiet and the flow of the space will take over. Should you find yourself waiting in the reception area, be sure to check out the bronze sculptures or just embrace the Zen atmosphere and relax on the plush sofa or chairs.
