    Other information

    Talise SpaTalise is the new worldwide spa brand of Jumeirah, and the spa at Madinat Jumeirah is impressively exotic, harmonious and comprehensive. 26 treatment rooms are laid out in island clusters - small private oases amidst tropical landscapes. You can stroll through private courtyards and stunning gardens, designed to ease you into a calm and relaxed frame of mind. Beautiful outdoor treatment tents allow you to experience your chosen treatment in harmony with nature, letting you immerse yourself in the Arabian surroundings. Aside from the normal treatment areas some rooms are kept private for ladies, while others are specifically for couples.The philosophy of Talise is to be the Spa for Self Discovery, and it aims to achieve this by providing a very individual, person-centred approach using five basic ingredients. Traditional spa treatments go hand in hand with alternative therapies and mind, body and soul treatments, and to these are added nutrition and physical fitness programmes. Talise uses only products from Sodashi, one of the world’s only totally natural skin care ranges.  

    Talise AbsolutionThe epitome of luxury, nurture and individual care. After a gentle foot ritual and pressure point massage, hot oil will be drizzled over your back, and you will have a four-hands life rhythm massage with steamed herbal poultices drenched in hot oil. Next a synchronized Lomi Lomi Sequence fused with Thai and Balinese movements. The layering of treatment oils and techniques prepare the body for the absorption and penetration of the minerals and nutrients in the full body mask. Hot compression to the face, pressure massage and an application of hair and scalp mud will culminate in an uplifting foot massage.Herbal Stone PoulticeA distinctive therapy incorporating the special healing powers of gems and potent herbs. A poultice of dark green aventurine spheres, woven into a powerful healing instrument, is applied to the core section of your body. A mixture with lavender as the key ingredient is applied to the extremities. The aventurine awakens the body’s natural healing abilities, which are drawn actively to the lavender, bringing enhanced healing energy to the limbs as the aromatic scent places the mind at ease.Talise Pure AwakeningTo reduce jet-lag or fatigue, this cleansing treatment begins with an invigorating body brushing to stimulate circulation. Sodashi’s all natural purifying mask is then applied to the whole body to stimulate the circulatory system, relieving the body of any sluggishness and congestion, removing unwanted toxins.
