First-ever Iridium Spa in the Region Creates Luxury Range of Signature Skincare Treatments

The result-driven spa at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi has created a brand-new menu of exclusive wellness rituals that focus on the concept of ‘time dedicated to you’.

Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, the first of its kind in the region, leads the way in the field of modern spa technology with its new menu of bespoke wellness treatments created by its team of experts.

Designed by Mariana Toma, Director of Iridium Spa Abu Dhabi, the new range of spa rituals are centered on the concept of time, dividing the menu into treatment lines focused on ‘Time for Body’, ‘Time for Face’, ‘Time for Hammam’, ‘Time to Relax’ and ‘Time to Enhance’.

Mariana Toma, Director of Iridium Spa Abu Dhabi, said: “Time is one of the rarest luxuries for people and we recognize the value of this through our rituals. Just as our guests set the intention to give themselves the time to heal, relax, rejuvenate or cleanse; we have dedicated our entire time, energy and focus on giving every guest a transformative experience with personally crafted treatments that use the most rare and refined products.”

“At Iridium Spa, we are known to treat our guests to some of the finest wellness experiences. This is why our new bespoke treatments use products infused with some of the most precious elements available on Earth. Stem cell orchid, sapphire, gold, diamond and platinum are just few of the surprises ready to welcome guests at Iridium Spa.”

With this new range, Iridium Spa in Abu Dhabi becomes the home to ‘The World’s Most Luxurious Spa Experience’. The aptly named full body wellness ritual is offered at the VIP spa suite, designed for two, which includes treatments infused with precious ingredients like platinum, diamond and gold. The ritual starts with a body polish and full body massage using platinum-infused oils and scrubs, which is followed by a firming facial using 24 Karat gold pebbles to enhance drainage and cellular renewal, while the body is wrapped in drops of diamond-infused oils. The treatment is finished with a drizzle of gold hair essence, which boasts rich wood and musk notes.

The 24 Karat Gold Stone ritual helps increase hydration levels of the skin, creating a smooth and toned effect, while the Roses and Diamond ritual guarantees outstanding restorative effects that provides dramatic results.

Commenting on the treatments, Mariana said: “We always use a head-to-toe approach for all guests to deliver a truly complete wellness experience. Every visit starts with our signature feet-cleansing ritual, followed by the treatment of choice customized to each guest’s needs, and finished with encapsulating the body in precious drops of gold, diamond or platinum as well as a spritz of precious hair essence.”

Iridium Spa Abu Dhabi is dedicated to delivering results, so award-winning skincare brands like Natura Bissé and AMRA have been used to create the signature rituals. Frequently used by celebrities like supermodel Elle MacPherson to Beyoncé, these professional skincare lines have been chosen as they match Iridium Spa’s high-performance expectations.

“We provide real and visible results through the avant-garde technologies and superior quality ingredients used in the treatments. With our Derm Analysis skin diagnosis system and the newest multi-functional technology in skincare, using the power of Mesotherapy with dermaroller, we can ensure visible rejuvenation starting from the first treatment,” Mariana said.

Some of the new facial treatments on offer include Iridium Diamond White, The 24k Gold Facial, The Hydra-Cure and Glyco3 Peel. Those looking for complete relaxation can choose the Sense of Calm, Sense of Connection, Sense of Balance or Sense of Vitality full body treatments.

Another highlight on the new menu is the multi-functional features of mesotherapy using a dermaroller, which creates micro pathways in the skin and allows the high-performance products to penetrate the skin more easily and effectively.
