My family and I spent the first two nights of our stay in the Emirate of Dubai at the four-star JA Ocean View Hotel located on The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR). During our stay my husband sneakily set up a 1-hour aromatherapy massage session at the hotel’s in-house spa, the Calm Spa.

The JA Ocean View Hotel Calm Spa is located on the third level of the 25-floor hotel. After being greeted and checked-in at the front desk, the gym is the first visible area once inside the spa. There were no visible signs showcasing the location of the changing room, fortunately I was guided there directly by the front desk clerk. Without her, I would have been lost.

Once inside, I was shown my assigned locker, and was provided instructions on what to do in order to prepare for my aromatherapy massage. I undressed, and put on their white robe and terry slippers, and was led into a one of the most relaxing waiting rooms where I could lie down and rest or read any of the available magazines they provided. Once my masseuse was ready for me, she whisked me away into the treatment room.

Calming mood lighting, and a fluffy treatment bed all set to the rhythmic waves of relaxing melodies made for the perfect spa setting. I knew I was in for a much-needed hour of pure relaxation.

My massage therapist spent the most time massaging my upper back, where the majority of my knots reside. For some reason, that’s where I tend to carry my stress. As she rubbed, gently I could feel the knots melting away, and my stress right along with it. At the end of the session, I was sad it was over. I wanted to lie there at least for another hour.

Overall, I enjoyed my aromatherapy massage session at the JA Ocean View Hotel Calm Spa. The next time you’re visiting Dubai, be sure to check out the Calm Spa.

  1. Girl, I could totally get used to good massages with fancy skin care! I remember going to a SPA that worked on Elemis in Moscow, Russia, and it was amazing!

  2. Spas are my jam… I love them because it is how my husband and I relax and getaway. This one looks fabulous.
