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

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 using the finest products from Aromatherapy Associates, Proverb and Maison D’Asa.

Overlooking the Arabian Gulf and surrounded by lush green landscapes, Spa InterContinental features ten treatment rooms, two of which are 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, an homage to the Emirate’s rich pearl diving history, whilst immersive experiences include treatments that are unique to the destination.

Escape the everyday with the Spa’s signature ‘Ras Al Khaimah Escape’, a uniquely curated 2-hour 30-minute treatment that rejuvenates, refreshes and resets the body from head to toe. The ritual includes a body scrub, a luxurious essential rose oil body wrap, a cooling mint foot ritual, an organic argan oil hair cleanse, followed by a 60-minute full-body massage with warm stones, and closed by a Maison D’Asa mini-facial.

Tension relieving aromatherapy is offered in the form of the UAE Massage (Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience) with the finest in essential oils carefully paired by the Spa therapists to match mood and stress levels. Lavender, peppermint, geranium, vanilla, wild chamomile, and frankincense are expertly combined to respond to individual guests’ needs and stimulate their nervous system accordingly.

Guests can also treat themselves to instant glow-up facials, such as the  Argan Ageless Facial which purifies, softens, invigorates, and maintains healthy skin cells. Personalised facials are also available for guests, designed to target individual needs.  For gents, the Gentleman’s Facial incorporates coconut shells and avocado stones to restore vibrancy, followed by a back cleanse with Himalayan rock crystal salts and upper body stretches.

The Spa also offers ‘express treatments’, perfect for when you need a quick refresher. The 30-minute treatments include Rose Scalp Therapy, a relaxing Head and Shoulders Massage, an Electrolyte Foot Soak, and a Salt Scrub Back Cleanse.

Treatments are available for both in-house and walk-in guests with required advance booking.
