We were invited to try the manicure, pedicure, facial and massage offer. Tao Spa is mainly a massage and an aromatherapy facial spa that provides an extensive range of massages using oils made of oriental flowers and plants. The pedicure and manicure by Tao was typical of an Asian hand and feet massage therapy combined with a thorough cleaning process including scrubbing, filing and clearing away dead skin cells to give you renewed and rejuvenated feet.
The massage was a deep tissue massage with our choice of oriental oil. The options for the oils include: Jasmine for muscle tension ease, Coconut for sensitive skin, Cherry Blossom for a rich aromatherapy massage, and tulips for relaxing.
The massage is a good 60 minute intense treatment that includes muscle relaxation and stretching out your tight muscles and ligaments – tackling the areas that might be causing aches and pains. It was a thoroughly invigorating experience and one that made us feel as though we had awoken from a deep sleep like Sleeping Beauty!
The facial was conducted using the hydro peptide products from their range of skincare and a deep pore cleansing routine. It involved glycolic peel, intense scrubbing, steaming and cleaning and massage techniques that made you feel cleaner than the oceans of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Vitamin C was the core ingredient in the products used and one-week post-treatment, our skin still feels renewed and softer than it has been for a long time.
Our verdict: We highly recommend any treatment at Tao Spa as they’re truly one of our top favourite beauty Spas in the UAE.
