Choosing the Best Day Spas in Dubai
When it comes to choosing a good day spa here in Dubai, we’ve compared our options based on the following factors:
1. Sofitel Spa
Facial, Body Massage
Hamman, Body Treatment
Day Spa Rituals

Staying consistent with the luxury presentation of the associated hotel, the Sofitel Spa positions themselves as one of the best day spas to try out here in Dubai.
The spa offers a great ambiance and environment, helping visitors relax and unwind. We love their luxurious-looking walls, resting centres, and furniture.
Sofitel Spa is quite popular for their signature massages and facials as well as the good facilities. They have a couples treatment room and around eight different private rooms.
We think this is quite a good selection, giving those who want some more privacy the added peace of mind. In our opinion, this could be great for first-time visitors as well.
Nonetheless, the prices are quite competitive though we did find that they’re not the cheapest option here in Dubai.
Additionally, some amenities may carry an extra charge that isn’t always reflected in the initial quote. For instance, some clients mentioned needing to pay extra to access the pool and the jacuzzi.
We think the team could be a bit more proactive in informing prospects about these deals as to avoid any confusion during the actual visit.
Still, their rather accessible location and great massage service makes them a very competent day spa in Dubai in our opinion. We definitely recommend first-time visitors to give them a shot.
- Pricing of services is quite competitive
- Decent array of spa services in Dubai
- Some amenities carry extra charges
- Takes some time to respond to inquiries

“I had the chance to try the Turkish hammam and it felt so amazing! After the entire exfoliation and the soap foam massage, my skin has never felt so soft and flawless! Definitely recommend it!” – Beāte Balode
2. COYA Spa & Salon
Mani & Pedi

COYA Spa and Salon offers a competent day spa experience aimed at pampering their clients in order to restore their vigor and improve their wellness here in Dubai.
A lot of clients really recommend their services in order to get a good summer glow, just in time for vacation season or even just before a return to the daily grind of work.
We find their spa’s ambiance to be quite comfortable, providing a touch of luxury despite the more cost-effective services they provide in the city.
In terms of services, they offer a good mix of beauty and wellness spa services, both geared towards different parts of the body.
Their massage services are said to be good at improvising metabolism and reducing the bloated feeling in the body. While it is hard to say if these benefits work similarly for all clients across the board, it is a relaxing experience in our opinion.
On the other hand, their facial services are definitely geared more towards the beauty angle. They use good products in order to help the skin feel smoother while sorting out some problems like blackheads.
You can also take home some of their spa experiences as they do sell some of the cleansers and lotions that they use for the service.
It does take some time to book an appointment with COYA in our opinion. Contacting them over on social media does lead to some long wait times before we can get someone to assist us on the other side.
Still, it’s a competent massage and day spa service that’s relatively accessible here in Dubai. We definitely recommend giving them a try in case you’re thinking of visiting a day spa in Dubai.
- Competitive pricing on facials and massages
- Great ambiance within the spa
- Takes some time to get an appointment
- Some longer wait times during the actual appointment

Founded back in 2007, the Dreamworks Spa presents itself as one of the oldest and most recognizable spa services here in Dubai.
They offer a good balance of wellness and beauty services in their spa, utilizing a good fusion of Asian and Western-inspired treatments and techniques.
It’s a good place to get some facials, volcanic stone treatments, body scrubs, and an assortment of massages in order to help release the tension in the muscles and joints.
Clients who’ve undergone the different massage treatments report the experience to be very rejuvenating, and they did confirm that they felt the massage was worth the money paid.
After all, the massages are also quite pricey for the duration they are given. Fortunately, it’s not the most expensive massage we’ve found among the different day spas in Dubai.
We did find some of the lights in the massage rooms to be a bit overwhelming however. It can be quite bright, especially when availing of the service during the daytime.
Some adjustments in the lighting could help bump up the comfort levels in the rooms in our opinion. Aside from that, the temperature and level of service rendered were all impeccable.
Setting up an appointment was quite a smooth experience as well. There’s very minimal delays and the price of services are communicated clearly towards their clients.
As such, we do recommend Dreamworks for those looking for an accessible day and beauty spa here in Dubai. We definitely recommend trying out their assortment of massage treatments to help rejuvenate yourself.
- Massages are very competent
- Good communication when it comes to policies
- Massages are pricier compared to other spas
- Spa environment could be a bit more comfortable

The Armonia Spa Center in Dubai is a spa service that looks to blend Western and Eastern aesthetics in order to create a highly accessible spa experience in the city.
They take pride in their luxurious yet inviting atmosphere, offering services such as massages, facials, and daytime scrubs here in Dubai.
A lot of these services are geared towards helping their clients relax, allowing them to take in the comforting experience offered by their various beauty treatments.
Clients report liking their use of good products when it comes to skin care and moisturizing as they try out the various spa services. The professionals working at the spa were quite good at the application as well.
It’s this use of quality products that does lead to the service costing a bit more than other places however. Budget-oriented prospects may want to check with other day spas first in our opinion.
Fortunately, other services such as waxing, manicure and pedicure, and even henna designs all seemed a bit more cost-effective and we definitely think they’re one of the better spas for these services.
It takes some time to get a reply when calling on the phone however. Some clients report some long hold times when they initially made the call.
Time management is quite good at the clinic itself, however. We didn’t have to wait long in order to go with the chosen day spa service here in Dubai.
We recommend those interested in spa and beauty services to check out Armonia Spa Center in Dubai.
- Very clean spa with nice ambiance
- Good massage services
- Services can be a bit pricey
- Takes some time to reserve a spot

5. Tao Spa

Thursdays - Fridays: 10:00 AM to 12:00 AM
|CUSTOMER SERVICE||★★★★☆ (4.5/5)|
Founded under Taoist philosophies and aesthetics, the Tao Spa seeks to provide a relaxing experience where people can just forget their worries and unwind.
Their day spa offerings lean a lot on the beauty aspect, providing services like massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and even waxing services in order to help their patients achieve their desired, stress-free look.
In our experience, the spa offers a very nice ambiance as well. Light doesn’t feel as overwhelming and clients are able to modify their environment as well via the use of different essential oils and massage oils.
Staff at the spa were very friendly and accommodating. They were very attentive to our needs and were able to respond to our requests and inquiries at a reasonable pace.
All-in-all, it can be quite a relaxing time to visit the Tao Spa, provided you manage to steer clear of some hiccups you might encounter.
For one, some previous customers did report a few delays when scheduling an appointment over the phone. There were some long hold times and some customers did report needing to be transferred to a more knowledgeable staff member.
There were also some wait times upon arriving at the spa which we think could be improved a bit. Some customers noted that it’s mostly based on finalizing payment and confirming their appointments.
Still, you could avoid these if you avail of their home service. The experience may take a hit depending on your home setup but we think this does provide a convenient alternative.
It’s because of this that we really recommend the Tao Spa for those wanting a good spa service. We think their ability to provide home-based services can be good value for money for a day spa in Dubai.
- Friendly and accommodating staff
- Very good ambiance at the spa
- Phone service is a bit delayed
- Some waiting time for a few services
