Wellness & Spas in Middle East & North Africa
Our favourite spa and wellness holidays in the Middle East
As the home of the world’s first natural spa, the Middle East is an ideal destination for a luxury spa and wellness holiday. Throughout the Middle East, there’s a rich tradition of hammams and Turkish baths, with many resorts combining these cultural experiences with health-based holidays for travellers.
In Jordan, the Evason Ma’in Hot Springs–Six Senses’ spa sits beneath a hot spring waterfall. Treatments utilise the healing properties of the mineral-rich waters, combining Dead Sea therapies with Six Senses signature techniques for ultimate pampering.
In the heart of Marrakech, Morocco, Villa des Orangers’ Spa Nuxe Villa Naranjos has five massage areas that encompass traditional hammam and baths. Meanwhile, Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort and Spa features locally-inspired treatments that use dates and seawater pearls from the Arabian Gulf.
Check into Oman’s Six Senses Zighy Bay to experience wellness programmes that encourage weight loss and detox. The resort also uses organic, locally-grown produce in all its restaurants.
