Set deep within the mesmerising desert landscape of Abu Dhabi, the Talise Spa at the brand new Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa is a hallmark intimate destination offering a sense of wellbeing and tranquillity. Suffused with peaceful beauty and focused on sensory experiences to offer the perfect escape, the spa is nestled within an exclusive natural environment.

Rebalance and embark on an individual wellness journey or escape the city as a couple or with a group of friends to enjoy pampering as calming as the setting itself. Trained to tailor experiences to individuals, spa treatments are delivered with faultless service in 13 luxury treatment rooms including couples' suites and private terraces to top off the moment. Enjoy steam rooms, crystal salt saunas and plunge pools, but be sure to experience what makes this retreat especially unique; the Margy's Monte Carlo treatments and Hammams inspired by traditional Turkish bathhouses. If the snow room is not quite cold enough, another standout feature to add to the list includes the revitalizing IceLab Cryo Therapy, where exposure to -110°C (-166°F) for one to three minutes invigorates the mind, relaxes muscles and supports anti-ageing.

With a resort design inspired by a historic village, and rooms as well as villas featuring timeless details and meandering courtyards, this brand new exclusive destination transforms the way that wellness is defined. A stunning desert resort with over 22,000 sqm of dunes provide a calming energy, underlined by the soothing sounds of water, with a 1,000 sqm pool set to rejuvenate guests in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

There are few sights and experiences that top this desert resort's serene setting, overlooking the extraordinary natural landscape and gazing into a calm wilderness. Learn about Abu Dhabi's ancient traditions admiring majestic birds of prey, or with an unforgettable guided trek as the sun sets, crossing the desert and discovering the dunes by horseback or modern day fat bikes. If you are hungry for more, enjoy the sunset in one of six venues including the breathtaking rooftop bar and Al Mabeet, a remote desert dining experience, or deepen your connection to the destination in the yoga pavilion to find your desert spirit.
