Relax and rejuvinate in luxury with Raffles Hotel, Oud Metha

Be revitalized, refreshed and relaxed with a blissful 60-minute massage in Raffles Spa followed by Manolo Blahnik – Fashion Afternoon Tea at Raffles Salon – all inclusive for AED 399

There’s no better way to treat yourself this summer. One of the most iconic hotels in the city, the pyramid-shaped Raffles Dubai makes an offer that you simply cannot refuse.

Priced modestly at AED 399 per person, the Summer Indulgence package includes a 60-minute rejuvenating massage at the Raffles Spa – a haven for peace and tranquility – followed by a regal Manolo Blahnik Fashion Afternoon Tea at the Raffles Salon.

Perched on the 4th floor of the hotel, the Raffles Spa is everything you’d expect at a five-star property. The staff was courteous at each touchpoint which made me feel comfortable and welcomed.

Extended consideration is given to the consultation form that has a blank human-body diagram, where you mark the areas you want the masseuse to focus on – something I have never come across at other five-star spas in the city. Sara was my masseuse for the day, and she was kind enough to customise my massage according to my requirements.

After experiencing the most relaxing massage I’ve ever received, I was escorted to the Raffles Salon on the ground floor, where a lavish Manolo Blahnik-themed Afternoon Tea set-up was awaiting me. Launched in April this year, this exclusive afternoon tea made quite an impressive noise amongst fashionistas in the city.

The highlight of this setup is the three-layer glass stand, where an edible Hangisi (the most recognizable Manolo Blahnik stilletos) makes a stunning appearance, along with other delectable high-end savories and sweets such as rhubarb tarts, glazed lemon scones, and yoghurt panna cotta, to name a few.

The complete Summer Indulgence experience at the Raffles is splendid and entirely worth the money. It makes the perfect gift to give someone special who deserves this exclusive treatment at this magnificent property.
