The idyllic island getaway InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort & Spa has announced the opening of the InterContinental Spa.

A sanctuary for the senses amongst the mountains, desert and sea of ​​Ras Al Khaimah, the holistic wellness retreat combines Eastern and Western treatments and techniques to promote a healthy mind, body and spirit, all while using the best products from Aromatherapy Associates, Proverb and Maison d’Asa.

Overlooking the Arabian Gulf and surrounded by lush landscapes, the InterContinental Spa has ten treatment rooms, including two for couples, separate relaxation areas for men and women, and an expansive Turkish hammam.

Inspired by its surroundings, each of the treatment rooms has been designed in the shape of a pearl, a tribute to the rich history of scuba diving in the emirate, while the immersive experiences include treatments unique to the destination. .

Escape the everyday with the spa’s signature ‘Ras Al Khaimah Escape’, a unique 2 hour 30 minute treatment that rejuvenates, refreshes and resets the body from head to toe.

Lavender, peppermint, geranium, vanilla, wild chamomile and frankincense are expertly combined to meet clients’ individual needs and stimulate their nervous system accordingly.

Customers can also treat themselves to instant brightening facials, such as the Argan Ageless Facial which purifies, softens, invigorates and maintains healthy skin cells. Personalized facials are also available for guests, designed to target individual needs. For men, the Gentleman’s Facial incorporates coconut shells and avocado pits to restore radiance, followed by a back cleanse with Himalayan rock crystal salts and upper stretching from the body.
