Bespoke facilities include experience showers, an ice fountain, herb saunas, steam rooms, a Jacuzzi and virtual reality headsets, which can be incorporated into treatments to offer complete, customised escapism and guided meditations, transporting clients to the world’s most beautiful destinations.

British Mums recently gave British mum Amy the opportunity to visit SENSASIA and here’s what she had to say about her experience:

“Just got back from my lovely 90 minute ‘Warm Candle’ massage at the new SENSASIA Spa on the first floor of the Kempinski Hotel at Mall of the Emirates and it was just blissful! The spa launched at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates last week after an extensive rebuild by SENSASIA, with a sleek, ultra-modern design and features a mini jacuzzi pool, steam room, and sauna as well as places to relax. SENSASIA is renowned for its massages and it definitely did not disappoint, though the spa services menu is varied and includes other treatments such as facials and body wraps. The commitment to cleanliness and hygiene was also impeccable so I felt very safe during my visit.

My experience began with a speedy check-in service, after which I was taken to the changing room and asked to change into probably the fluffiest robe ever! For my massage, I had a choice of two different scents to choose from and choose a lovely, relaxing lavender scent. My therapist was great and really listened to my preferences. She really helped to work out some soreness in my back and then finished with a lovely head massage. After the massage, I had a shower in the new ‘experience’ shower in the changing rooms – the shower had 4 different modes to choose from, which varied water pressure and light colour. I then had a few more moments to relax with a lovely complimentary cup of ginger tea. All in all, it was a truly wonderful experience!”

As well as offering the award-winning massages, facials and body treatments that long-standing SENSASIA clients have been flocking to the 16-year-old spa chain’s locations to enjoy time after time – such as the targeted, deep tissue ‘Knead-IT’ and The Ultimate Recovery massages; Warm Milk & Honey body wrap and
The Essential Spa Ritual, combining a prescribed, personalised facial with a full body massage – SENSASIA Stories  guests can also carve out their spa own experience from the very beginning, with the option to book time as opposed to treatments, and allowing the expert team of therapists to script a tailored, transformative journey, just for them.
