Spa at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort

Luxurious well-being on a culture-rich island

Thanks to its location on Saadiyat Island, home to pristine sandy beaches, turquoise waters and cultural institutions such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi, a stay at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort feels like a relaxing island holiday, despite being within a 10-minute drive to the city’s downtown area. Time feels slowed down here, offering the perfect excuse to take some for yourself at the sanctuary-like Spa at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island.

Spread over nearly 30,000 square feet, the spa’s 15 treatment rooms and other facilities invite you to experience a wide range of wellness treatments, massages and therapies that promise to rejuvenate the mind as much as the body.

At the resort’s Bodyism Wellness Centre — the UAE’s first — a state-of-the-art gym offers group sessions and personal training, and a café serves light and healthy meals along with smoothies and juices.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Longer spa journeys offer thoughtfully curated combinations of treatments and massages that ensure overall well-being, whether you’re hoping to recover from severe jet lag, get rid of insomnia or feel revived for a celebration. For example, the Recovering Traveller rebalances circadian rhythms and releases fluid retention through lymphatics and a technique using a bronze kasa bowl — it’s great after a long red-eye.
  • Treatments incorporate some of the best skincare and wellness brands in the world, such as the Ayurveda-based Subtle Energies, Biologique Recherche’s innovative customized treatments, clinically engineered 111SKIN by cosmetic surgeon Yannis Alexandrides and Hammamii, which draws on Arabian wellness heritage.
  • Try the grand Moroccan hammam. Here, steam first relaxes the muscles and softens the skin before it is refreshed through a combination of exfoliation and detoxification. Using local dates, hydrating camel milk, Arabian coffee, za’tar (a spice mix) and body oil, the 60-minute Emirates Hammam treatment is particularly indulgent.
  • Celebrating a special occasion with a significant other? Book the VIP Deluxe Private Spa Suite for a couples treatment. The luxurious suite comes with an ensuite shower, a private sauna and a steam room.
  • Arrive at least 30 minutes before your session at the Abu Dhabi spa to take advantage of additional facilities, such as the sauna, steam, Jacuzzi, hydrotherapy pools, Himalayan salt room, ice fountain, experience showers and rhassoul.

The Treatments

  • Try the 60-minute Saadiyat Revitalising Massage, a full-body, deep-tissue service that uses flowing movements, acupressure and stretching to leave you energized.
  • Cryotherapy treatments include the 90-minute Cryo Energy Facial, which uses cold air (-50 degrees F) with a 111SKIN machine to relieve puffiness and the 30-minute Cryo Energy Cellulite Treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs.
  • Nourish your skin with the Pearl Infused Remineralizing Body Mask where after intense exfoliation, you’ll be treated to a body mask prepared from pearl and conch shell extracts and a Subtle Energies facial marma massage.
