2. Slimming Chocolate Body Wrap at YHI Spa

Calling all chocolate lovers: Dubai has a chocolate body wrap that’ll help you slim down too! Hello best of both worlds… The treatment at YHI Spa begins with an exfoliating Peruvian chocolate body scrub, followed by a layer of melted chocolate. Cling film is then wrapped around the body with a heated blanket for 30 minutes, ending with a full-body massage using chocolate syrup. Yum!

Where: Melia Dubai Hotel

Price: Around AED 500 for 90 minutes

3. Coco-Nutz Massage at SensAsia

Time to go coco-crazy as SensAsia has a massage that’ll make you crave coconuts for life. The spa’s 60-minute ‘Coco-Nutz’ massage is a full-body treatment that targets tired muscles using pure virgin coconut oil. If that’s not enough, you can pay a little extra and treat yourself to the ‘I Am Coco-Nut’ – a 90-minute treatment that involves a coconut-based body scrub before the Coco-Nutz massage.

Where: Multiple locations around the city

Price: Around AED 395 for a 60-minute massage

4. Coffee Peeling at Talise Ottoman Spa

Wake up and smell the coffee with Talise Ottoman Spa‘s incredible Coffee Peeling hammam treatment. This experience uses Turkish coffee to refine and tone the skin, followed by a full-body coffee peeling which not only leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated, but your mind too!

Where: Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

Price: Around AED 565 for 60 minutes

5. Hot Bamboo Massage at SensAsia

Another quirky favourite at SensAsia Urban Spa is the Hot Bamboo Massage. The experience kicks off with a peppermint footbath, followed by an ancient treatment involving bamboo sticks with little plastic cups on the end to press on the muscle. In order to tackle the tenser areas, bigger sticks are used to roll over stress points and relieve pressure. Painful yet oh-so satisfying…

Price: Around AED 495
