Chi, The Spa, Shangri La Qaryat Al Beri
Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat al Beri, Abu Dhabi
A favourite of the local Emirati clientele, the high-quality, all-natural Asian healing treatments paired with Arab influences at this particular spa are among the city's best. From the exotic Arabic Coffee Scrub to the Arabian Date Body Wrap, most of these naturally derived treatments are good enough to eat. The spa's signature Ultimate Royal Retreat includes a traditional hammam followed by an invigorating one-hour deep-tissue massage.
Guests can enter via a private entrance by the souk and make time to enjoy the facilities before or after the treatments. Enjoy the access to the Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, and for an additional fee, rest by the creek on the hotel's private beach or rooftop infinity pools that look over the picturesque Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
