Celebrate International Women’s Day all week long with these blissful spa, beauty and wellness deals
SUNDAY, MARCH 7
Start your week of pampering and self-care as you mean to go on at one of the most exquisite spa destinations in the city.
Located on the furthest tip of The Palm’s West Crescent, complete with its own private marina, Guerlain Spa at One&Only The Palm’s bespoke two-hour Gift of Beauty package is a top-to-toe double whammy of two exceptional treatments.
Like a cardio class for the face, the 60-minute Beauty Lift is bodybuilding for your visage, comprising an intense and incredibly effective facial massage that releases tension, sculpts, smooths and plumps for an immediate and lasting lifted effect that’s an instant anti-ager. The hour-long Body Lift is designed around flexibility, muscle strengthening, targeted smoothing and suppleness, with a massage that sculpts the body, stimulates cellular renewal and firms the skin – making it as effective as a workout! Together, they’re a serious prettifying partnership!

Join Kundalini yoga teacher and trainer Nancy Zabaneh at 7.45 pm on the upper-level Zone D of Gate Avenue, DIFC for a dedicated set and meditation designed to uplift and expand your awareness of the Divine feminine, the positive expression of the feminine side of us that exists in both men and women. A dynamic practice that develops stamina by using physical postures, movement, breathwork, meditation, and mantra to purify the blood, strengthens the nervous system, and invokes a glandular shift, the Kundalini yoga class will be followed by Sound Therapy with wellness consultant, Lisa Oxford. Wear light-colored cotton clothing, preferably white, as it supports the practice and expands the projection and electromagnetic field. Participation is free, but pre-registration is essential to ensure social distancing measures can be observed.
