In the UAE, there's very little we really need to leave the house for. Whether you want your food delivered to your home, someone to come and clean your car or even an expert to offer you advice on how to keep pet fish alive (this is a real thing, read more here if you don't believe us), there's a service you can book.
So there will be no surprise that there are also plenty of great at-home beauty and spa services you can dial up for, too.
Here's a list of some of the best on offer across the Emirates.
Home Spa By Ignite Wellness
This mobile spa specialises in bringing massage therapists to your door. There are nine treatments to choose from, including Balinese, sports, hot stone and even prenatal, with prices starting from Dh450. You can opt to have these at home, or there's also a corporate option for an in-office pick-me-up. You can also buy a gift voucher or package of five or 10 one-hour or 90-minute sessions.
The Home Spa
Emirate: Abu Dhabi, Dubai
A full range of beauty and hair treatments are available from this home spa. From mani-pedis, polishes and paraffin therapy for your hands and feet to hair removal, facials and body scrubs, there's not much this place doesn't offer. They even have treatments and hair cuts for children. Prices range from Dh50 for a foot polish to Dh620 for a couple of the facials.
Plenty of treatments for women are on offer from Azza, from bleaching and brushing to hair botox and even a Moroccan bath. One of this spa's unique selling points is that it offers a children's party package, which includes nail art, make-up, face painting and hair braiding for Dh300. Prices are pretty reasonable, for example a French pedicure is Dh100 and the most expensive facial is Dh250.
