CHECK-IN EXPERIENCE | Reviews of Azure Spa Holiday Inn Al Barsha, Dubai
At first, we were seated in the turquoise colored reception area with the nice aromatic smell coming from specialized incense sticks. Our therapists were waitings for us and they both gave us disposable shorts(half pants- which we have to wear during the massage therapy), fluffy bathrobes and bamboo slippers. A lady therapist and male therapist accompanied us to the candle-lit aromatic dark room. A light and soothing music were playing inside. The atmosphere of the room was warm, candle-lit and makes us feel sleepy when entered. Also, they follow the quiet policy inside, though not written anywhere so that other guests are not disturbed during their relaxation treatments.
MY MASSAGE EXPERIENCE | Reviews of Azure Spa, Holiday Inn Al Barsha, Dubai
My therapist made me very comfortable and asked about my sensitivities, problem areas or any pain in the body so that she can customize the massage treatment. I requested her to start with Lighter strokes and then move on to heavier strokes. She applied perfect pressure on specific zones and not too heavy or harsh ones as I am not used to massages quite often.
Using the perfect blend of herbal oils, she started with lighter strokes on the legs and back to reduce back pain and leg pains occurred during long travel. It was a very soothing start and after that, I requested slightly heavy strokes too and it completely relieves my body pain. One quick point, that they keep the body cover during the whole massage procedure beneath the towel type of sheets as it keeps our body warm.

Even after the massage while going into my room, I had a very relaxed baby sleep for several hours.
AFTER THE MASSAGE OPTIONS | Reviews of Azure Spa, Holiday Inn Al Barsha, Dubai
Oh sadly, my one relaxed one hour is gone and I have to wake up again. Then our therapists took into another room and requested to rest for a while. Then we were given fresh towels, bathrobes, rubber slippers and taken to the shower room. The shower room has been occupied with luxury toiletries, so do not bring your own. I had a complete shower under the cold water (not too chilly and not hot too). Relaxed massage followed by a cold shower was a truly magical rejuvenating experience.
After a shower and dressing up again, we were taken to the reception area where they greeted us with a magical drink. This hot drink is served in Moroccan styled cup and is a combination of tea, honey, and lemon. I loved this hot honey lemon tea after a great relaxing massage therapy. I got rejuvenated again after a long travel.
