DEAR VALENTINE, WE WANT TO GO HERE

Inspired by Dubai’s ancient pearl industry, The Pearl Spa at the Four Seasons Resort Dubat at Jumeriah Beach is all about luminous luxury. Featuring ten spacious treatment rooms, the spa delivers cutting-edge skin care as well as signature treatments drawn from Dubai traditions. Here, you’ll find ingredients such as crushed pearls, camel milk and desert sand mixed with the most coveted international skincare products.

Along with a vast array of treatments on offer, both the men’s and woman’s locker rooms feature an indulgent aqua thermal experience. Move between the stream room, heated whirlpool, ice fountain and rain shower for the ultimate wellness experience.

A favorite among locals and travelers alike, The Pearl Spa has added to its allure with it’s special Valentine’s Day offering. An occasion to remember, their Swim Under the Stars package allows couples exclusive use of the resort’s 6,700 square foot indoor swimming pool. On arrival, enjoy a foot ritual massage then dive into the pool (and whirlpool) to relax and unwind. Rose petals line the pool while candles glow throughout the surrounding area. Light refreshments of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries are served while the stresses of daily life melt away.

Once relaxed, it’s time for a decadent three-course meal complete with the soothing sounds of a harpist. It’s definitely a slice of the good life. — J.S.
