ABU DHABI, March 6th, 2016 – The all-encompassing spa at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal was named Best Hotel Spa of the Year, Middle East and Africa at 2016 World Spa & Wellness Awards that took place in London on February 28, 2016.
“The award is a testament to the dedication and professionalism that the Ladies and Gentlemen of the spa have consistently demonstrated in the two years since the spa opening,” stated director of spa, Paris Kounoudis. “From creating exclusive body rituals inspired by the culture of Arabia to ensuring every element of the spa journey is an experience that our guests want to relive over and over again, we were able to position the spa at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi as the leading spa in Abu Dhabi and in the region.”
Providing a calm, contemplative, meditative space in which to relax, reflect and socialize, the beachfront spa at the luxury hotel offers pioneering treatments in a serene setting steeped in Bedouin culture of Arabia. From the refreshing flavour of mint-infused Moroccan tea upon arrival to carefully selected décor elements inspired by local traditions, guests are enveloped in sublime beauty created through the use of natural materials such as limestone, iridescent glass and brown onyx that give the space a harmonious feeling. Situated on two levels, striking Moroccan hammam, saunas flooded with natural daylight, marbled steam rooms as well as 16 luxuriously appointed treatment rooms provide holistic rejuvenation and relaxation while invoking a sense of travel and timelessness.
