Spring weather has officially arrived in the UAE and with it comes the warm temperatures and sunshine we have all been waiting for.
After a painfully gloomy February, I decided that it was time to hit the reset button and spring forward into the new season. To kick off this fresh start, I booked a day of luxurious, restoring activities at Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi. Here is your guide to the ultimate weekend refresh in the capital:
First stop is the Fitness Center for a one hour personal training session. With poolside and palm tree views, the elegantly designed gym is a chic upgrade from the average exercise spot. After an intense, but reinvigorating workout, you have earned some time to relax - but before you do, your trainer can send you a personalized training schedule to help you continue your fitness momentum.
Refresh and cool down after your workout at the Atarmia Spa’s private spa pool. The intimate, flower filled location is the perfect setting to let your cares wash away.
Continue your relaxation with a trip to the rest of the Atarmia Spa facilities. Soothe sore muscles in the bubbling hot tub and starlit steam room or sneak in a recline on a heated stone bed. Then book yourself a massage or one of many other detoxifying treatments from Atarmia's extensive menu. The spa’s serene atmosphere and gorgeous, Arabian interior will take your mind miles away.
Finally, refuel with a lazy lunch or light bite at the Beach House. The hotel's new executive chef and the restaurant's revamped menu are two more reasons to love this beachside hotspot. If you are a foodie like me, you’ll be delighted by the amazing selection of tapas, starters and mains (my personal favorites were the chilled cucumber soup, pulpo a la gallega and quinoa salad with poached prawns). After your meal, end your afternoon with a sunset stroll along the white sand of Saadiyat Beach.
