Featured property: Talise Spa at Burj Al Arab

The Talise Spa at Jumeirah’s Burj Al Arab in Dubai delivers the ultimate in luxury.

Jumeirah’s Burj Al Arab is a remarkable and luxurious hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, known for its distinctive design and status as one of the world’s tallest hotels. Completed in 1999, the Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 meters from Jumeirah Beach and is connected to the mainland by a private bridge. Designed by Tom Wright of WKK Architects, the building’s shape is meant to resemble the sail of a ship, and it even features a helipad near the roof, 210 meters above ground​​.

Although officially classified as a 5-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab is sometimes referred to as a “7-star” hotel due to its top tier luxury and unparalleled service. The interior of the Burj Al Arab is as stunning as its exterior, with opulent trappings, a 180-meter-tall atrium, and 199 suites, each spanning two floors. Renowned for impeccable service and hospitality, including a high guest-to-staff ratio, with eight staff members for each guest, the Burj Al Arab even has a fleet of Rolls Royces for guest transportation​​. There are also exceptional dining options, a private beach, a fitness center, and an award-winning spa.

Perched 150 meters above the Arabian Gulf, Talise Spa is set over two levels and offers 14 treatment and therapy rooms, separate male and female indoor infinity pools, saunas, steam rooms, plunge pools, and a Jacuzzi. Awash in natural light, the serene setting and discreet environment at Talise Spa is a sanctuary for hotel guests and day guests. Tall ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Dubai and the Arabian Gulf, shoulder-high golden vases, potted plants and mosaic columns surround the pool water “like palm trees around an oasis.”

Talise Spa delivers the ultimate in luxury, as wellness specialists deliver carefully crafted spa treatments combining Arabic traditions, ancient knowledge, contemporary techniques, the world’s best beauty products, and cutting-edge technology. Personalized training sessions are offered in the state-of-the-art fitness center. 

The spa menu reads like a dream and, whichever treatment you choose, you’re promised to leave feeling recharged and ready to rejoin the world. Stand out spa menu items include:


Although traveling and attending glitzy events sounds fun, it comes with the drawback of affecting the body’s circadian rhythms or natural body clock. This rejuvenating experience – a combination of Swedish, Balinese, Thai and shiatsu massage – helps regulate sleep by focusing on distinct points of tension in the body.


This two-hour ceremony, designed as an authentic tribute to Arabian wellness traditions, begins with a 60-minute customized massage with golden amber oil. The Arabic element is known for soothing lower muscular and joint pain, decreasing anxiety and healing fatigue. It’s followed by a purifying and stimulating facial with a red clay mask that can decrease puffiness and recover your skin’s natural glow.


A luxurious experience of purification, relaxation and sensorial awakening from head to toe. Begins with an organic 30-minute body scrub to eliminate impurities and give your skin a silky touch, followed by a relaxing 60-minute massage with the spa’s Arab signature oil infused with sandalwood, argan and macadamia. This massage will melt away tension and help your mind to switch off. A soothing facial with acacia and damask rose creates a plumping effect and a gorgeous dewy glow – the perfect ending.
