Banyan Tree Al Wadi – The Rainforest – Aroma Steam Room

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 21st 2012 – Banyan Tree Al Wadi is the first luxury desert resort to offer an all-pool villa concept complete with an award-winning Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa.


Nestled in the tranquil Wadi Khadeja, a protected enclave of sturdy evergreen ghaf trees, the resort offers city dwellers a unique retreat with its own nature reserve where indigenous desert wildlife roam free. After a day of outdoor adventure amidst rolling sand dunes, teeing off at the 18-hole championship golf course or sun tanning on the private beach, guests can step into The Rainforest of Banyan Tree Spa Al Wadi for a uniquely revitalising treatment.


The first comprehensive hydrothermal circuit in the UAE, The Rainforest is a signature Banyan Tree Spa innovation. Spanning 2,080 square metres, this expansive facility features sand-coloured interiors that echo the resort’s desert surrounds. Featuring tropical rainforest effects with state-of-the-art facilities, The Rainforest is a journey through 16 unique experiences with a focus on body detoxification and relaxation.


The 60-minute Rainforest Experience, priced at AED 150+ per person, is a choice treatment for couples and individuals. Guests begin with a Rain Walk featuring a series of cleansing showers and a Sole Therapy pebbled pond with hot and cold water pockets which gently massage the soles of feet. The Aroma Steam includes two scented steam capsules (rooms) followed by an icy Bucket Drench Shower to close the pores post-steam. The Brine Cavern, a salt-infused steam cabin, clears the nasal passage while the Ice Igloo awakens the senses with a cold rub-down from ice crystals. The Vitality Pool features six different acupressure jet stations, with heated wooden loungers to conclude the session. Exclusive Ladies’ Only time slots are also available daily from 11am to 12.30pm and 5pm to 6.30pm.


Guests can indulge in the 150-minute Rainforest Indulgence signature treatment priced at AED 700+, which includes The Rainforest Experience along with a Body Wrap and Indian Head Massage, Body Scrub and a choice of Body Massages delivered by the intuitive touch of skilful therapists. All spa treatments (except hand, foot and hair treatments) have an additional 30-minute Calm Time, which comprises a welcome footbath and post-treatment refreshments and relaxation.


Guests who stay at Banyan Tree Al Wadi will enjoy one complimentary 60-minute Rainforest Experience per person per stay.
