Although not as glamorous as some spa destinations, the Middle East is the ideal spot for an Arabian adventure and home to some sophisticated, exclusive spa resorts with top-rated facilities and some stunning scenery and landscapes nearby.
Abu Dhabi and Dubai are modern metropolis that boast opulent resorts and indulgent luxury retreats where you can unwind within oases of tranquility. Oman also has some dramtically-sited spas that provide the perfect getaway whilst Jordan has a number of idyllic spa-hotels on the Dead Sea.
These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your spa break in the Middle East by adding a city stay, beach holiday or excursion to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
