Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah

Dubai's oasis of calm
VERIFIED LUXURY
Tucked away among the meandering canals, swaying palm trees and Arabian architecture of an expansive resort complex, Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah is like a secret sanctuary in the heart of Dubai. Arrive on an abra, a traditional wooden boat, and step into the quiet lobby. Sip tea as you reflect on its calm, clean aesthetic that is enhanced by accents of aqua, dark wood and stylish touches.

The 26-room haven possesses a range of restorative treatments, grooming services and wellness therapies to promote balance for the mind and body. Services offer a sense of place, drawing from the spa’s proximity to the sea and rich Arabian traditions and rituals. Some treatments are inspired by the wellness heritage of Asia, resulting in a spa menu that caters to every preference.
