The Talise Spa at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers



What I tried: The 60 minutes Intensive Muscle Release at the Talise Spa Jumeirah at Etihad Towers

What I expected: A shaven-headed Romanian body builder who would pull my body in different directions and leave me to put them back together i.e. an hour of yelling in pain, with nobody listening.

What happened: A very nice Balinese chap called Budi first washed my feet, then let me use the sauna and steam room, then gave me a firm but yielding massage using a combination of Aromatherapy Associates’ de-stress mind and body oil and gel, along with some frankincense oil. I had had an extremely tough week, skiing, travelling and playing football to top it all. Not wise at my age. He seemed to have the unerring knack of finding just the spot that was sore and needed coaxing back to life, without making it seem like a visit to the Spanish Inquisition.

The verdict: An hour later, I felt rejuvenated and ready for a round of golf and 10 rounds with Floyd Mayweather. The smell, the oils, and Budi’s carefully applied pressure to the most stubborn knots soon made me feel much better.

What: Intensive Muscle Release Massage, 60 minutes

Where: Talise Spa, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi

Price: AED 450 for 60 minutes.
