SENSASIA Stories Spa: The Ultimate in Exclusive Holistic Wellness

The SENSASIA brand was launched in Dubai in 2004 and has since gone on to become the largest independent, award-winning spa group in the UAE. The company has developed a loyal customer following as well as a reputation as the home-grown brand that spa lovers know and love. Its portfolio of bespoke locations offers a sensory journey through blissful spa experiences, based on Japanese, Balinese, and Thai traditions.

As what seemed like the next natural step, founder Salina Handa went on to set up a consultancy for the wellness industry in the Middle East. SENSASIA Stories Spa was born in 2020, a one-of-a-kind destination with the first branch located at the Kempinksi Hotel Mall of the Emirates.

Located on the first floor of the hotel, SENSASIA Stories Spa’s elegant, minimalistic feel is inspired by Asian design. Customers are welcomed in the reception area where they begin their journey of relaxation and rejuvenation, swapping their shoes for slippers. Next door is the express spa where customers can enjoy shoulder and shorter back massages that don’t require undressing.

For more in-depth wellness treatments, guests are escorted to a separate area. The interiors are decorated in calming shades of grey for an instant feeling of serenity. Designed by Pallavi Dean interiors who are based in Dubai, the Asian feel is demonstrated in the natural wood and stone detailing throughout the interior creating a relaxing, contemporary space with traditional arched architecture.

SENSASIA Stories Spa offers a wide-ranging selection of treatments including some of their well-known traditional favourites like the Balin-Ease massage. This exciting concept means guests can customise their treatments precisely to their needs choosing from various scents, styles, and its length. There are also set treatments available making use of different massage oils for the ultimate in relaxation. There’s something for everyone from express, targeted treatments to longer deep massages.  Besides massages, there are also a range of facials, wraps and scrubs on the menu including options for moms-to-be and body therapies that help to sculpt various areas of the body using well-known brands like Natura Bisse, Skin Regimen and Elemis.

The unique concept is loved and enjoyed by every visitor to SENSASIA Stories Spa with their holistic approach to wellness which enables them to fully customise an experience that is exclusively theirs. The highly trained teams of experts are dedicated to offering unparalleled service and developing every treatment along the way while also staying true to the popular, traditional spa menu items.

These exceptional spa experiences offered in a stylish and relaxing environment makes SENSASIA Stories Spa a worthy recipient of an award. The experts at Luxury Lifestyle Awards have selected them as a winner in the category of Best Luxury Spa in the UAE.
