Abu Dhabi residents looking for some much-deserved rest and relaxation can rejoice: spas in the capital's five-star hotels got the go-ahead to reopen last week, with safety guidelines in place.

Many of Abu Dhabi’s leading establishments have already reopened, some with tempting “welcome back” discounts. Thinking of booking yourself a day of pampering? Here’s what’s open and what’s on offer.

Anantara Spa, Anantara Eastern Mangroves

Offering treatments inspired by traditions across the Arabian Peninsula and Asia, the Anantara Spa is now open to the public, and has launched some new treatments to celebrate.

Reviving Wellness is a deep aromatherapy massage that focuses on detoxification and healing, while the Kati Vasti treatment, which draws on ancient Ayurveda techniques, uses warm oil to help with back pain. A Velvet Glow treatment includes a full body magnesium scrub and massage.

To make a trip to the spa even more tempting, Anantara Spa has a welcome back offer: guests booking a 60-minute treatment get an additional 30 minutes of pampering time, and a voucher for another offer on their second visit.
