Devarana Spa, the luxurious Thai-inspired spa chain and part of the Dusit International group, is to open a 1800 square metre spa at the Al Osaimi Group's AED 1 billion Luxury Resort, Spa and Residence project located on the Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

The move follows an earlier agreement signed by Dusit International and Al Osaimi Group for the management of the project and aims to offer world-class spa treatments with traditional Thai service and hospitality. Designed under the theme 'Garden in Heaven', Devarana Spa is set to offer guests with outstanding services through age-old therapies combined with modern knowledge, and with an emphasis on pampering and wellness using established Thai health and beauty practices.

The spa which comprises of nine private single rooms and two double suites, will provide its patrons with a fusion of relaxation technologies derived from Thai and Eastern practices and the more recent Western methods. Offering a tranquil interior, which includes Devarana's trademark contemporary Thai style such as water features, 14th century Thai arch, canopied couches and handwritten poetry on the wall, the spa has also adopted a Middle Eastern influence within its overall concept to cater to a wider range of guests. Remaining faithful to the spa's natural ambiance and its 'Back-to-Basics' ethos, all therapies within the centre will be complemented by 100% natural products and trained massage experts.

"In our pursuit towards providing the most luxurious lifestyle to the guests and tenants of our maiden project, we are proud to bring the renowned Thai hospitality through the inclusion of Devarana Spa to the lavish facilities within our luxury resort. With utmost customer satisfaction as our primary goal, we recognise the advantages that this partnership will bring to us, as spa services have become an important criterion for hotel selection for clients in the Middle East. We are confident that the presence of this spa facility will attract more tourists and investors and ensure that they will be treated with the highest standards of comforts and convenience through the world-class spa service being offered at our luxury resort; ensuring privacy, VIP treatment and most-off all luxury pampering in a secluded peaceful environment," said Arige Abukishk, Exec. Commercial Director - UAE, Al Osaimi Investments.

Further embracing its concept, the Devarana Spa has developed new treatments by combining authentic Thai therapies with traditional Arabian treatments such as the traditional hammam, incorporating indigenous products, in addition to its existing offerings within its award-winning international menu. Also available among the wide range of services and amenities are foot reflexology, manicure and pedicure areas, changing areas with heat experience, relaxation lounges, reception and a spa shop. More than 30 spa personnel will be trained at Devarana's base in Thailand, with trainers visiting Dubai to conduct further training.
