Set deep within the desert landscape of Abu Dhabi, the Talise Spa at the brandnew Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa is a destination that offers a sense of wellbeing and tranquility.



It features 13 luxury treatment rooms and couples’ suites with private terraces, steam rooms, crystal salt saunas and plunge pools. Guests can enjoy the Margy's Monte Carlo treatments and Hammams inspired by traditional Turkish bathhouse spa treatments. 

Along with a snow room, it offers revitalising IceLab Cryo Therapy, where exposure to 110 degree Celsius invigorates the mind, relaxes muscles and supports anti-ageing.

Inspired by a historic village, all rooms and villas feature timeless details and meandering courtyards. Spanning more than 22,000 sqm of dunes, the resort provides a calming energy, underlined by the soothing sounds of water, with a 1,000 sqm pool set to rejuvenate guests in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

Learn about Abu Dhabi’s ancient traditions admiring majestic birds of prey, or with an unforgettable guided trek as the sun sets, crossing the dunes by horseback or modern day fat bikes 

Guests can admire the beautiful sunset in one of six venues including the breathtaking rooftop bar and Al Mabeet, a remote desert dining experience, or find a deeper connection to the destination and the spirit of the desert, in the yoga pavilion.

“It's important for us to have a portfolio in Abu Dhabi that reflects the true essence of the destination and offers a unique wellness retreat with exceptional service. The Resort joins Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort and Jumeirah at Etihad Towers  both in prime locations. It combines Arabian charm, architecture, generous hospitality and promises a luxurious experience amidst a panoramic backdrop. We look forward to welcoming our guests,” said Jos Silva, chief executive officer of Jumeirah Group.

The resort offers both weekday and weekend packages, starting from AED 1,900 (Bt16,360) and AED 2,200 (Bt18,943) with AED 500 spa credit.
