What: A secluded spa at One&Only The Palm, with nine spa suites, an outdoor lap pool, a fitness center, a Bastien Gonzalez "medical" pedicure and manicure parlor, and a hair salon.
The look: Roman emperor's villa, with a landscaped inner courtyard and a splashing marble fountain; airy inner sanctums have glass windows, cream walls, bronze textiles, and mother-of-pearl showers.
Who goes: Vacationing couples of all ages; abaya-clad Emirati ladies whisk off their head scarves for beehives at the outpost of Parisian hairstylist Alexandre Zouari.
The treatment: Therapists conduct detailed interviews. Yasmine, a talented Egyptian masseuse, uses eucalyptus or tangerine oil to relieve stress and reinvigorate.
P.S.: Spectacular night views of Dubai's skyscraper-studded coast make evening treatments popular.
