Raffles Dubai create the Egyptian Gold Facial inspired by ancient civilisations
When one considers Dubai, it is a luxury lifestyle that comes to mind. Lavish hotel rooms, unbeatable spas and a true immersion into the playground of the wealthy. The fascination with providing the most opulent services possible is something the great hotels of Dubai excel in and there is no exception in Raffles Dubai.
Despite the golden city’s, glowing reputation it cannot be forgotten that Dubai is indeed, in the middle of a desert. This of course means that it can be harsh on your skin. A day by the pool, riding across the sand dunes or treasure hunting in the souks can leave you with a yearning for relaxation and rehydration and that is exactly where the Raffles Spa comes in. Within the appropriately pyramid-shaped hotel, Raffles Spa has five single and two couples treatment rooms and an array of world-renowned treatments.
For their latest treatment, the therapists at the spa have taken inspiration from Cleopatra – who else? It is said that the extravagant Queen of the Nile swore by a gold mask to keep herself flawless. The modern version combines 24 carat gold with the latest spa technology, to deliver radiant skin.
A main feature in Ayurvedic medicine, gold not only revitalises but also increases the elasticity of the skin. The ancient Egyptians saw gold as a reflection of the brilliance of the sun and indeed, today, the specialised facial treatment leaves you with a glowing complexion.
